Go to www.paypal.com, open an account. Send your paypal account email with your invoice.

After you got your money in your paypal account you have to transfer it to your bank if you wish to spend it in Argentina.

It is easy.

Go to paypal.com and look, where you have to click in order to open an account.
It is on the very top "sign up"
Thereafter you have to indicate your currency and your country etc.

Fill in the details and give your bank account details (you need it as a reference account).

They will do a verification - that means they will transfer a small amount (cents) onto your reference (bank) account and you will have to confirm the exact amount.

Thereafter it is ready for use.

Hope that I did not forget anything - it is a long time ago since I openend my account.

If you need further advice... Feb 18, 2009

just let me know, I will try to help.

One more thing: you may add several currencies to your account.
This has the following advantage:
Should you only have a USD account and somebody pays in GBP or EUR, the money will not be credited immediately. You will have to use to accept/decline button. This can be avoided, if you ad the most important currencies which you expect to receive.

If you transfer money from paypal to your account, it will automatically be converted into your currency.
