How do I add a credit or debit card to my PayPal account?

In Australia, you can add a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover card to your PayPal account.

Here's how:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click Link a card or bank account.
  3. Click Link a credit or debit card.
  4. Enter your information.
  5. Click Link card.
When you add a card, you may be notified of a 2 AUD charge to your card. The charge on your card is temporary to confirm if your card is ready to use with PayPal. It usually takes a few minutes to receive the refund back to your card, but it can take up to 30 days depending on your card provider.
