How old do you have to be to have a PayPal account?

Post by JackMarsh007 »

Hi, My 10 year old daughter takes online drawing classes and gets all her payment in my PayPal account, later I give it to her in cash.

I was wondering if I could open an account for her on PayPal, thereby eliminating my role as a middle man and also saving myself from getting into trouble with the IRS since this income is not my income but my daughter's.

All help and suggestion is much appreciated.

Thanks
Jack Marsh

You have to be at least 18 years old to open a PayPal account. If she opens one right now, PayPal may limit her account and may not allow her to open another one when she turns 18. So it's better if you keep doing what you're doing right now.
