Login to the User Control Panel by clicking on the link below:

The Login window will be displayed as below.

Login using the Username and Password you received from PayPal.

(Your Username and Password are also recorded in your PayPal Account).

2.0 Confirm your Account Details & Activate your Account

Press the Confirm Details & Activate your Account button.

Once your account is activated, you will be returned to the main SimplyExpats.Net User Control Panel window.
