What is my PayPal account number?

Your PayPal account doesn’t have an account number or a routing number. Your account is identified by the email address that you log in with.  You can’t send or receive money until you confirm this email address. After you confirm your email address you can send and receive money and add and withdraw money to your PayPal balance.

At this time direct deposit into a PayPal account isn’t available, however you can set up direct deposit to a PayPal Prepaid MasterCard®.

If you don’t remember your log in email address, click Log in on any PayPal page and click Having trouble logging in? so we can help you locate your log in credentials.
