When someone wants to pay you, you have them send the money via paypal to the e-mail address that you registered.

Me: "I'd like a $5 badge please! Here's my character info (blahblahblah), what's your Paypal address"
You: "Sure thing! My paypal is myemail@myprovider.com. I'll get started on it as soon as I receive payment."
Me: "Ok. I'll go do that now"

Then your commissioner goes to the Paypal site, clicks the "Send money" link, fills out the form and sends the money.

Me: "All sent, from omemail@omsprovider.com"
You: "Yup, I got a receipt from paypal that you sent it. I'll get to work!"
You: "Here's your awesome art, thanks for commissioning me!"

As for taking the money off of your Paypal and into a bank account, you need to check out Paypal's site and get help to set it up.


You can also Request money from people if they give you their paypal e-mail account.

It is one of the options on the side :) So if they give you their request and info you can accept it and send the request for money so it is easier for them :)

EDIT: Also note that sometimes Paypal will take a % Cut from you. It tells you as part of the transaction.
