There are several scams in which the scammer asks a newbie for their "PayPal Account Number".  Please tell us why you (or somebody else) wants that number!

You don't have a PayPal account number.


People PAY to YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS that you registerd with PayPal.


If you mean a payment TRANSACTION NUMBER - that is on the DETAILS page for that payment.

PayPal uses your registered email address as your account number.


If you are selling, make sure you enter it correctly into the sell your item form, so buyer payments can reach you



Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
