Where do I find the PayPal code to link and confirm my credit card?
You can find your 4-digit PayPal code on your debit or credit card statement next to or near the charge amount. In the item description section, you will see it next to the word PAYPAL or PP.
Please allow a few business days for the PayPal code to appear on your online card statement. If you do not have online access to your statement, you'll need to wait for your statement in the mail or you can telephone your credit card company.
To enter your PayPal code, log in to your PayPal account, click Profile at the top of the page and click Credit Cards under Financial Information.
If you want to confirm your debit or credit card, but cannot find your PayPal code, you can request a new one to be resent.
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click My Account.
- Click Confirm my debit or credit card in the To Do List box.
- Click Resend PayPal Code at the bottom of the page. If there is more than one card listed, choose the appropriate card from the drop-down menu.
- Click Save and Continue.
When you click Save and Continue, your card is charged a small fee. If you have online access to your card statement, it'll take a few business days for the charge to appear, depending on your issuing bank. If you do not have online access, you'll need to wait for your statement in the mail. Your unique, randomly generated 4-digit PayPal code is displayed on your statement near the PayPal fee. In the item description section, you will see it next to the word PAYPAL. You need it to confirm your card.
Note: A new PayPal code may be requested up to 3 times.
