How long does it take to add money from my bank account to my PayPal account?

Adding money from your bank account to your PayPal account usually takes up to 5 business days.

Here’s how to see when the money will be in your account:

  1. Go to your Activity.
  2. Click the transfer in question.

Did you know that you don't need to add money to your PayPal account to make a payment? Just link a debit or credit card, or a bank to your PayPal account. Confirm it, and choose it at the checkout.

To pay instantly with your bank account, you’ll need to link a debit or credit card to your PayPal account as a backup. We’ll only charge the card if we're unable to debit your bank account for the payment.
