How do I add money to my PayPal account balance and how long does it take?

You don’t need to have money in your PayPal account balance to make a PayPal payment. You can make payments with your card if it’s linked to your PayPal account.

But if you want to add money to your balance:
  1. Go to your account Summary or Wallet page and click "Add Money".
  2. Using the bank details we provide on-screen, log in to your bank account to make a domestic bank transfer to PayPal.
We’ll send you an email once the money has arrived in your PayPal account. Transfers are usually processed within 2-3 working days.
