How to activate your new QR code.

When you receive your seller kit, you need to use the PayPal account you used to purchase to activate each item. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Sign into the PayPal app with the account used to purchase your QR code item(s).
  2. Scan to activate.
  • Personal App - sign in and select the Scan/Pay icon and then scan each individual QR code.
  • Business App - sign in and select the quick links action menu, then select the Activate QR code icon and scan each individual QR code.
  1. Make sure you scan each QR code to activate it. You can verify it's been activated by scanning with the app. You will see the message "This code is already linked to your account."

That's it! Now you're ready to use your QR code for touch-free transactions. For more ways to get the most out of your QR code, visit PayPal QR code.
