This post is a how-to, if you wish to withdraw your os.me earnings and use them outside the platform. By the way, your earnings can be used to gift os.me memberships to other people or to buy/upgrade your own. I’m keeping a 3rd of my earnings to do that for people who cannot afford os.me memberships.
There are 4 ways you can earn from os.me:
- Inspiration: These are earnings from the no. of views on your posts
- Interaction: These are earnings from the no. of comments you receive on your posts and your comments on other people’s posts as well as on your own. Additional earnings if your posts get featured
- Support: These are earnings from support-the-author option at the end of your posts
- Love and Blessings: Without any measure or calculations
I strongly recommend everyone to read the detailed karma points program here for a holistic understanding of the program. It’s simply amazing!
Coming to the PayPal account set up, we’ll go step by step, bring patience, a pen and a notepad:
Step 1: Setting Up Your PayPal Account
Go here to sign up for a Business Account. Have a look at the screenshot below, an individual account will not work as it does not allow you to receive payments. It’s like a wallet, wherein you link your card and make payments on shopping sites etc.
Choose Business Account and go Next
Step 2: Choose Relevant Options
At this step, you have to choose the source of your earnings, an estimated amount per month and currency. Refer the image below for appropriate options, feel free to change if you want to use your account for other options in the dropdown.
Step 3: Enter Your Email and Set a Password for PayPal login
This will be the primary email id for your PayPal account and identification on os.me at the time of withdrawal.
Set up a password
Step 4: Describe Your Business
Please choose the options mentioned in the picture below, they are most relevant from those available.
Step 5: Tell Us About Your Business
Share the relevant details, it will ask for your full name, contact number and address.

This will redirect you to your email verification page and ask for password, enter the password set in Step 3 to validate. Once done, the following screen will appear to complete the remaining details (KYC and Bank Details).
Green tick means step complete. Orange exclamation means that step needs more information for your account to be functional.

Choose this option in the business set up screen (tick and exclamation screen) in step 6.
You will see the following screen.
