There are all sorts of ways that you can get money paid into Paypal.
When Paypal first started it tended to be linked with ebay and therefore was often used for financial transactions between buyers and sellers on that site. However, it has now expanded and can be used to accept payments from websites using online stores and to just exchange money between friends, family member or to get paid for work done online. Once you have money in your Paypal account, you can easily withdraw it to your bank as long as you have associated a bank account with the Paypal account. Otherwise you can use the money to buy things online from places which accept payments through Paypal.
There are lots of things that you can do online to get paid. There are websites where you can pick up freelance work, for example. Obviously you will have to complete the job before you got paid and so it would not be instant. You could sell some things and get money that way, but if you wanted them to sell quickly you would have to offer them at a low price.
It can be best, when you are looking to earn online, to give it some though, no rush into it. You want to be sure that what you are doing will get you the money that you expect.

Many places will give you money through Paypal though so it should not be hard to find a way to get some money paid into your account.
