Create a Paypal Account for your pool…
Are members just not paying until the week before the pool opens? Are board members not even paying until then? If so, it’s time to modernize! You can no longer rely on members to turn in checks on time.
Creating a Paypal account should only take a few minutes….
Step 1: Go to Paypal.com
Step 2: Sign up for a Business Account using any email. They will ask you to verify this address, so be sure it’s an email that you have access to OR forwards to you. So if for example, email@example.com forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org, that should be fine (we just tested that, so as of this writing, a forwarding address is ok).
You can sign up for a Personal Account and convert it to a Business account after logging in. Or you can alternatively upgrade any Personal Account to a Business account.
That’s the main setup!
