What is an instant transfer?
An Instant Transfer is a payment made directly from your U.S. bank account. The recipient receives the money instantly.
Instant transfer is available only to users with a U. S. bank linked to their PayPal account. To make an Instant Transfer, just link a U.S. bank account and a debit or credit card to your PayPal account.
Linking your bank account is easy and fast. If you do online banking, you can usually link your bank account in a few minutes.
After you’ve linked a U.S. bank to your PayPal account, using instant transfer is completely secure. Merchants get paid but cannot identify your bank or view your bank account details.
