PayPal is a payment feature that allows users to purchase Riot Points through online money transferring. Your PayPal account will be required to be financially funded with a bank account, credit card, or debit account. With a PayPal account, you will be able to easily make purchases without having to enter your credit card information when you wish to make a purchase.

What is a PayPal Billing Agreement?
You now have the option to create a Billing Agreement with Paypal if your League account's email address is verified. A Billing Agreement lets you make Paypal purchases through the client without needing to log into Paypal. It's completely optional, so if you'd prefer not to make the agreement, you don't have to.
The option to save your payment information will appear as a checkbox on your Order Complete screen, like this:
If you make the agreement and decide you'd like to cancel, do the following:
- Open the League of Legends store
- Click on the Purchase RP tab
- Select Paypal and choose a price
- Click on the "Cancel Billing Agreement" button
Keep in mind that if you change your League email, it will automatically remove the Billing Agreement, and you'll need to set it up again.
