How do I add money to my PayPal account from my confirmed bank account?

You don't need to have money in your PayPal account to make a payment. As long as you've linked a bank account or card, you can shop with PayPal and pay from the bank account or card.

If you still want to add money to your PayPal account, you can do so from a confirmed bank account. You can't add money with a credit or debit card.

To add money:

  1. Go to Wallet.
  2. Click Transfer money.
  3. Click Add money to your balance.
  4. Follow the on-screen steps to complete the transfer.
Note: Before adding funds we may ask you to complete your identity verification.

To add money from the PayPal app:
  1. Tap your balance.
  2. Tap Add Money.

It can take 3 to 5 business days for your money to be available in your PayPal account.
