Bo here from Shopify Support!
Absolutely. You will need to set up a payment gateway in order to receive payments from your customers. By default, the system will try to send any funds that were paid through PayPal to a PayPal account with the same email address that you used when signing up to Shopify. If an order has been processed through PayPal the funds will be sent to a PayPal account with the same email. Did an order go through?
As you are getting started I'd recommend taking a look at our Shopify webinars for sure. These short tutorials take you through all the basics of creating a store such as adding products, variants, collections, theme changes and pointing a domain to your store. You should be able to sign up here. if you would like. We also have a free business course with our Shopify Academy that I would really encourage you to look at if you get a chance.
Please do let me know if you have any further questions.
All the Best,
