How do I get money out of my PayPal account?

You can transfer money to a local bank account, a bank account in the United States or to an eligible debit card.

Here’s how to make an Instant transfer to your eligible debit card (subject to a fee):

  1. Go to Wallet.
  2. Click Transfer Money.
  3. Click Transfer to your bank.
  4. Enter the amount.
  5. Select in minutes.
  6. Follow the instructions.

Here’s how to make a Standard transfer to your bank account:

  1. Go to Wallet.
  2. Click Transfer Money.
  3. Click Transfer to your bank.
  4. Select in 1-3 days (No fee).
  5. Follow the instructions.

The Standard transfer typically completes in 1 business day. Sometimes, depending on your bank's clearing process, it may take 3-5 business days. If you transfer money on a holiday, it will take an additional business day for the money to appear in your bank account.

To withdraw money on the app:

  1. Tap your PayPal balance.
  2. Tap Transfer.
  3. Tap Transfer to bank at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Select in minutes (fee applies) or in 1-3 days (no fee).
  5. Tap Transfer Now.

All transfers are subject to review and could be delayed or stopped if we identify an issue.

The minimum amount you can withdraw to your bank account is $15.00 CAD.
