How to Create a PayPal Account

PayPal is a great alternative if you are not comfortable using your credit card online. With PayPal, it is possible to use your bank account for purchases and PayPal acts as an intermediary between your bank and the purchasing website. PayPal is FREE and will be used as the main form of payment for Pocatello Ski and Snowboard Association membership and trip sign up. Follow the link and step-by-step instructions below to sign up for a PayPal account. Please note: if you are comfortable using your credit card online, creating a PayPal account is not necessary since it is possible to input the number into PayPal (which is a safe-secure connection) without being an account holder.
