PayPal is a service that enables you to accept payments electronically. You sign up for PayPal using an email address. Once you complete your interview, the Field Interviewer will ask you for the email address associated with your PayPal account. The funds will be transferred to your PayPal account which can then be transferred to your bank account or used through PayPal. Delivery time for PayPal is much shorter than for cash or check.

Please check your email account to ensure that it has not been redirected to your junk mail.You can also check if your money was sent by logging into your PayPal account.If you have any concerns about your gift, or if it has been over two weeks since you completed the interview, please call 877-853-5908 and leave a message specifying your concerns or questions, your name, the best time to reach you, and your phone number.
