Why can't I send money with my credit card?

There are a few reasons why you might not be able to send money with your credit card.

For regulatory reasons, there may be a limit on the amount of money you can send or receive. You can check your sending limit by logging into your personal PayPal account and clicking on See how much you can send with PayPal. For business accounts, you can “View Limits” within the Overview section of your account.

If you’re not able to send money with your credit card, you may be able to complete the transaction by paying with your bank account.

Linking your bank account to your PayPal account is secure and easy. If you do online banking, you can usually link your bank account in a few minutes.

Once you’ve linked your bank to your PayPal account, you're protected when you pay for things. Merchants get paid but they never see your bank information. They won’t even know which bank you use.
