    Is it?
    I really want to have one, since I'm under 18.

    If it's possible, please show me the way to do it.

    I believe so.

    You just need a valid checking account or one of those check/debit cards.

    I had mine before I was 18

    Possible - yes. Legal - no.

    If paypal finds out, you account can be suspended until you are eighteen and any funds that are in your account, can be frozen.

    Why dont you get you parents to make one and then just use it then; once you turn 18 get the account transfered or create a new one.

    That is probably the better option since it is legal.

    This thread is old but I'm going to reply anyways. Read their privacy policy and terms of use. I believe it's stated somewhere in there.

    Ya paypal will allow you if you have a valid bank account or a credit card. It belives that bank people give account to the people who crossed their 18. So no problem

    Assuming you are in the United States, when you get to the sign up page, there is a statement there that says
    In the PayPal User Agreement, there is a Eligibility and Types of Accounts:
    Unfortunately, this just proves that users do not read these agreements. I know most are mundane and most statements will never apply, but most users will at least skim the agreement for a few things, one I would hope would be eligibility.

    I actually called paypal and they said you can be 17 because at 17 you can have your own bank account and debit card, but obviously younger people get them all of the time

    Well, there is no problem to open a paypal account if you are under 18 but the only thing is if they find you, your account will be suspended and any funds will be frozen.
    Better you deal with paypal personal unverified account until you turn 18
