To use PayPal on your Shopify store, you must have a business PayPal account. Most functions and tools provided by PayPal for business owners are only available when using a business account, meaning if you want to get the most out of your PayPal account for your business, you need to have the right account.

According to the PayPal help centre, here is how to upgrade your PayPal account:

1) Click the Settings icon at the top of the page.

2) Click 'Update to a Business account'.

3) Enter your business information, and read the E-Communication Delivery Policy, User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

4) Click 'Agree and Upgrade Account'.
