Adding PayPal to your account

Overview

The following describes how to link your PayPal account for AutoPay or making a single payment.

Setting up PayPal

You can set up and link your PayPal service to make AutoPay and single payments on your DreamHost account.

Enabling AutoPay on your PayPal account

The advantage of setting up AutoPay is that DreamHost will automatically charge your card whenever a payment is due, which saves you time and hassle in paying for recurring charges every month.

To set up Paypal for Autopay:

  1. Navigate to the Manage Payments page.
  2. Scroll down to the 'Setup AutoPay' section.

  3. In the 'Add PayPal Account' box, click the PayPal button.

When you select PayPal, the PayPal login screen opens. If you're already logged in and wish to use a different account instead, click the 'Not you?' link and enter your PayPal email address and password.

After you log in, authorize the payment. You'll then return to the 'Manage Payments' page to confirm the AutoPay purchase.

Using PayPal for single payments

To make a single payment using your PayPal account:

  1. Navigate to the Manage Payments page.
  2. Scroll down and click the 'Add Money to Your Account' section.
  3. Click the 'PayPal' section.
