How to select PayPal as the preferred Payment Method

Provided that the currency of your rate with Lionbridge and the country you receive funds into are PayPal eligible, you will see two options: Bank  and PayPal, in the box named “Payment Method”. 

Your  current “Active payment method” is called out in green. The “Active payment method” reflects the option selected at the bottom of the Financial Details form.

The PayPal form opens as soon as you select PayPal as a Payment Method.

If you would like PayPal to becom your Active Payment Method, select “My Selected payment method is PayPal” and fill the requested fields (Beneficiary Name, PayPal ID, Confirm PayPal ID) accurately. The PayPal ID is the email that you used when registering with PayPal.

To confirm the change, please click on the green button “Save PayPal Changes.”

To verify your “Active payment method”, you can always go to Finance Details.

Removing PayPal Details

You can clear PayPal information from our systems by clicking on the “Remove PayPal Details” button seen in the screenshot above. This will automatically set Bank as your preferred payment method in your account.

Important: Deleting your finance details utilizing the delete or backspace key on your keyboard DOES NOT remove your details from our servers. Please make sure to click on the button “Remove PayPal Details”.

Alternatively, it is possible for you to leave the PayPal details in our system for future use and select “Bank” as your Selected Payment Method.

*Please note: While Payoneer and PayPal are supported in Canada, India and Japan, we cannot offer these payment options in these countries at this time. We only support PayPal payments in Brazil if your rates were negotiated in USD and for work outsourced outside of Brazil. This is due to local accounting rules and regulations that require a different payment process for local versus international Lionbridge projects.  If you are looking to switch to a PayPal eligible currency or payee country, we can assist you via a Support Request.
