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:
- Have you reached your sending limit? Log in to your account and click View Limits to find out.
- Have you reached the spending limit on your credit card? Contact your card issuer to find out.
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.
