How do I link and confirm a debit or credit card?

After you add your debit or credit card, you may be required to link and confirm it. You link your card by authorizing PayPal to charge it a small, refundable amount.

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click My Account.
  3. Click Link and confirm my debit or credit card in the To Do List box.
  4. Click Save and Continue.

The charge may appear on your online card statement in a few business days, depending on your card issuing bank. If you do not have online access, wait for your statement in the mail. Your unique, randomly generated 4-digit PayPal code is displayed on your card statement near the PayPal charge. In the item description section, you will see it next to the word PAYPAL.

You need your PayPal code to confirm your card.

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click My Account.
  3. Click Confirm my debit or credit card in the To Do List box.
  4. Enter your PayPal code and click Submit.
