How do I add funds to my PayPal account?

If you have a confirmed bank account, you may add funds to your PayPal account via electronic funds transfer. After you initiate an electronic funds transfer from a Canadian bank account, the funds will become available in your PayPal account within 7-8 business days.

Transfers made from a U.S. bank account will become available in your PayPal account within 3-5 business days. You will receive an email confirmation every time you add funds to your account. Note that if you do not wish to add funds to your PayPal account, you may send a PayPal payment using a credit card or Instant (bank account) Transfer.

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Add Money under "PayPal balance."
  3. Select the method you want to add the money.
  4. Select the bank account and enter the amount you want to add to your PayPal account.
  5. Click Add.

Funds transferred from a Canadian bank should appear within 7-8 days and funds transferred from a U.S. bank should appear within 3-5 business days.
