What is an eCheque?

An eCheque is a payment that you make directly from your bank account. You can only send an eCheque if your bank account is the only payment method attached to your bank account, and you don't have a credit or debit card as a back-up payment method. If you have a back-up payment method, you won't be able to send eCheques.

Please note that eCheques are not instant payments. It usually takes between three and five working days for an eCheque to complete and the money to appear in the recipient’s PayPal account.

If you would like a faster way to pay using your bank account, we recommend using Instant Bank Transfer.

To send instant bank transfers, you need to have a verified bank account and a credit or debit card attached as a back-up payment method.
