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

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

Here's how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Wallet near the top of the page.
  3. Click Link a card under "Credit and debit cards".
  4. Enter your information.
  5. Click Save.
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.

If you'd like to replace or remove your card, here’s how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Wallet near the top of the page.
  3. Click Edit under the card you'd like to update.
  4. Select the card you want to remove and click Remove.
  5. Review the information and then click Remove.

You cannot remove a card if the card was used for a pending transaction.
