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

To add a card:

  1. Go to 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.
In some cases, in order to ensure you’re the card owner, we may ask you to confirm your credit or debit card. If you see a “confirm credit card” link in the card details section of your PayPal Wallet, you’ll need to confirm your card before you can use it with PayPal. If you don’t see this link, you can begin using your card right away.
