How do I add a debit or credit card to my account?

You can add a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit card to your PayPal account.

Here's how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Wallet near the top of the page.
  3. Click Link a card under "Credit cards".
  4. Enter your information.
  5. Click Save.

Note: When you add a card, you may be notified of a 1 USD charge to your card. The charge on your card is temporary to confirm if your card is ready to use with PayPal. It usually takes a few minutes to receive the refund back to your card but it can take up to 30 days depending on your card issuer.
