However, let me briefly explain what PayPal payment service means and what exactly you can use it for.
PayPal is a payment service that can be used for money transfers – whether making or accepting payment, sending money as a gift, or donating to a charity. This can also be used by bloggers, donation sites, and an eCommerce store for receiving money across the globe.
However, PayPal has made it a straightforward and quick process to check your balance anytime. In addition, your balance can be checked on your Android, iOS, and PC. In theory, you’d have to go to paypal.com — or open the mobile app on your iPhoneor Android if you prefer to check there — and log into your account.
Although, the PayPal app work for both Android and iOS. Many users prefer using a web browser to installing a mobile app on their phones. This might be because of storage, or you find it easy to know your way around on a web browser than using the app. Additionally, PayPay might not be available in your region.
Remember that the entire process is identical whether you are on Android or iOS devices.
- Launch your preferred browser.
- Type in and visit www.PayPal.com.
- Navigate to the upper-right screen corner. Tap Log In.
- Enter your PayPal credentials.
- You’ll see your balance on the main page.
Note: To get more details regarding the balance, tap the menu on the top-left of the screen (hamburger icon), then click Balance.
You can also use the PayPal app (if it is available in your region). Here’s how:
- Visit Google App Store on your Android device.

- Click the download button and install.
- Launch the app after installing it and Enter your PayPal credentials.
- Finally, your current PayPal balance is located on the main account page, on the left side of the screen.
If you use your iPhone or iPad primarily, you might consider downloading the official app for iOS, which can make the process easier. However, bear in mind that this app is still not available in some regions.
- Open the App Store app on your iOS device.
- Tap Search at the top of the app.
- Type in PayPal, and you’ll be able to download and install it if the app is available in your region.

This method works for everyone without regional restrictions. You can do everything via a browser on PayPal since the browser is PayPal’s main hub.
Note: You can find third-party PayPal apps for Windows. But you’re required to avoid using them because it’s the money we’re talking about.
