What is an Instant Transfer?
PayPal's Instant Bank Transfer is one of our fastest ways to pay. You can use it if:
- You have a verified bank account and a credit or debit card attached to your PayPal account (as a backup payment method), and
- The money in your PayPal balance is not enough to cover your payment amount (PayPal always uses the funds in your PayPal balance first.)
