What is your access method for online payments on websites like StockX? Nowadays, it’s not a big deal to use your debit or credit card online for purchases, and StockX has a reputation for being very secure.
But if you’re much more comfortable using an online wallet system like PayPal, that’s understandable too. But can you use PayPal to buy or sell items on StockX?
The answer is yes, you can. In this article, we will guide you through the process of how to add PayPal to your buying and selling profile on StockX.
Add PayPal to your purchase information
If you are thinking of creating a StockX account, is it to buy or sell shoes and accessories? Buyers have an easier time on StockX because they have fewer hoops to jump through.
You can create a StockX account with your Twitter or Facebook account in just a few minutes. But then you need to set up your profile. You can find your buyer and seller profile by following this path on the StockX “My Account > Settings” page.
Once you’re there, you’ll be able to see all the changes you can make. After going through your name and email, shoe size and preferred currency, you are directed to the purchase information section. To add PayPal, follow these steps:
- Next to “Purchase Information”, click the green “Edit” button.
- A new window will appear. You will be prompted to choose to add PayPal or add a credit card.
- After selecting “PayPal”, a new window will open. You will be prompted to enter an email connected to your PayPal account.
- You have to accept “Accept and continue”.
- And then proceed to enter your full name and shipping information.
- Then click “Continue with PayPal”.
That’s all about it. Your StockX account now has PayPal as the preferred payment method when shopping for sneakers or streetwear. You can always go back and edit the shipping information specifically or connect a credit card in case your PayPal account is low on funds.
Add PayPal to your seller information
If you plan to use StockX primarily as the place where you’ll be selling items, then adding PayPal is the right move. As a seller, you have two options. You can use an ACH electronic money transfer to your bank. This could take up to five business days.
Alternatively, if you want a faster process, PayPal is a better option. However, before you can add PayPal as a payment method, you must provide seller information that includes a valid credit card and billing address.
Simply click the “Edit” button next to “Seller Information” in Settings and confirm. After that, you can scroll down and follow these steps:
- Select the green “Edit” button next to “Payment Information”.
- Select the option “Use PayPal for payment”.
- Enter your PayPal information. Type your email address twice.
- Select “Send”.
PayPal will automatically connect your account to StockX. And now, this is your official payment system. However, sometimes a PayPal transaction can fail.
This could happen due to a frozen account or for any number of reasons. It’s probably best to contact PayPal directly and check what caused the problem. That said, this doesn’t happen very often.
Why should I use PayPal for online payments?
Everyone has heard of PayPal. It is the most popular online money transfer system out there. When it comes to shopping online, there are many reasons why sticking with PayPal over credit cards is a better option. Ultimately, PayPal is very convenient.
All you need is your email address and voila, you’re done. PayPal is also encrypted, and in the age of questionable cybersecurity that comes in handy.
PayPal even pays hackers to find weaknesses in your system, so you know your information is safe. So it’s no wonder a reputable company like StockX uses it as one of two payment options for their sellers.
Buy and sell on StockX with PayPal
If you’re used to using PayPal for most of your online purchases, you’ll love that you can do that at StockX too. If you are a buyer, you will not have to leave your credit card information, only the shipping information and your email.
As a seller, you will need to connect your credit card for verification, but your payment method can still be exclusively PayPal. Using PayPal has many benefits, but online security is by far the most important.
