In this tutorial series, we will learn about how to open an account with Alpaca and fund it directly.
Let’s go to Alpaca and click on the signup button.
If you already have an account with Alpaca and are looking to know how to fund it, skip to step 3.
Clicking on the signup button should take us to a page that looks something like this. Enter the email that you want to sign up with and a password that you’ll remember. After signing up you should receive an email that requires a confirmation from your side.
After confirming the email from Alpaca, your account should show you both of these options on the screen, where you can signup either as an individual or a business entity.
If you encounter any problems with our platform, please reach out to our support team at email@example.com.
We also have a slack for our Alpaca community that can be accessed by typing “alpaca-community” as the name of the slack channel.
