I have been using paypal to pay for items for a while now but I want to know exactly how getting paid works. I looked at everything on their website but it wasn't exactly clear. I know I need to link my bank account. But here's my question: When someone sends me a payment, does it go directly into my bank account? Or does it go into the paypal account and force me to transfer the money to my bank account? And does the buyer need anything other than my email? Thanks for the help. I want to know exactly what I am doing before I start doing it.
