PayPal is a widely recognized platform for cross-border payments and online transactions, especially outside India where it reigns as a go-to solution. Despite its popularity, many Indian exporters are hesitant to use it owing to its relatively high fees.

However, exporters often encounter a dilemma when foreign clients insist on using PayPal, a platform they trust and are familiar with.

Understanding the needs of such Indian exporters, Skydo has introduced PayPal integration, making it easier for them to handle all cross-border payments under one roof. While Skydo can help manage your PayPal transactions, let's first understand how to open a PayPal account for yourself.
