How do I confirm my credit card on my PayPal account?

To confirm your credit card:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click the card you would like to confirm.
  3. Click Confirm credit card and follow the instructions.

By confirming your credit card, you authorize PayPal to charge 1.50 EUR (or 1.95 USD depending on the card type). A 4-digit code is then generated randomly and is sent to you.

You will find it on your bank statement next to the verification amount taken and the word "PAYPAL" or the letters "PP."

If you have online access to your statement, it takes 2 to 3 business days for the charge to appear depending on your card issuer.

To complete the card confirmation:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click the card in question then Confirm.
  3. Follow the instructions.
► Any charge on your credit card will be refunded to the same card within the next 24 hours once confirmed.
► Confirming your credit card removes your payment and withdrawal limits. It also proves that you are the registered holder of the credit card because you alone have access to the PayPal code.
► You will be able to make payments even if card verification is not complete depending on your PayPal account limits.
