How and Where to Buy Stocks with PayPal – Tutorial

by Last Updated: Nov 01, 2021

Nowadays, it has become very popular to invest money into stocks. The demand for investing got even higher during the pandemic, especially in order to avoid losing the value of your money with the inflation on the rise.

Whether you want to buy Tesla, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google, Microsoft, or AMD stocks (or some of many others available) and want to pay for them using your PayPal account, there is a solution for you. To buy stocks with PayPal, you can simply use the eToro platform, as they accept PayPal payments.

*Highly volatile investment product. Your capital is at risk.

So, you will just need to register on eToro, make a deposit (via PayPal) and buy a stock. If you need some help with this, I have written a detailed step-by-step tutorial on how to buy Ethereum with PayPal on eToro. I know, Ethereum is a cryptocurrency (you can buy cryptocurrencies on eToro too) but the process for buying stocks with PayPal via eToro is the same. The only difference is that you won’t choose Ethereum as your trading instrument, but, for example, Apple stock as your investment.

Besides stocks and cryptocurrencies, with eToro, you can buy commodities such as gold or oil. Or, you can make an investment into world FIAT currencies as well.

*eToro is a multi-asset platform which offers both investing in stocks and cryptoassets, as well as trading CFDs.

Please note that CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 67% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Past performance is not an indication of future results.

Cryptoassets are volatile instruments which can fluctuate widely in a very short timeframe and therefore are not appropriate for all investors. Other than via CFDs, trading cryptoassets is unregulated and therefore is not supervised by any EU regulatory framework.
