You dont have to use paypal, Italki can pay money directly into your bank account if you want.

When I signed up for PayPal I simply created an account. You shouldn't need to do anything more.

Thank you teachers for answer my question!

Interesting.. I just checked Paypal about making a new account, and it offers Personal and Business options. If it's a matter of sending and receiving money, I'm sure the Personal account will be fine. Perhaps you could write to italki support (link at the bottom of the page, of course) and ask if there are any issues with having a "Personal" Paypal account.


Anyway, you would simply link your bank account to your Paypal account. You request a withdrawal of credits from your italki revenue account into your Paypal account. Transfers are handled around the beginning of each month (it's not an immediate transfer). Then, you transfer the money from Paypal into your own account.


Keep in mind that both italki and Paypal take a commission, so you need to include that in your calculations when you decide how much you want to charge students.
