What credit cards can I use with PayPal?

You can add the following credit cards to your PayPal account:

• MasterCard
• Visa
• American Express
• Discover


  • Our system does not accept Maestro cards.
  • The credit card must be registered under the name of the PayPal account holder.
  • We recommend that you do not use virtual cards to make your payments because our system detects that you are frequently adding and canceling cards. This can compromise the smooth running of your PayPal account.
