Why can't I add a bank account to my PayPal account?

Click here for the steps to add your bank account.

Here are some possible reasons why you couldn't add your bank to your PayPal account:

  • Your bank account must be opened in Hong Kong or in the U.S.
  • Your bank might have been added to another PayPal account already.
  • If you've added this bank account to 3 different PayPal accounts previously, you won’t be able to add it to your PayPal account again.
  • The name on your bank account must match the name on your PayPal account. If the names don't match, you may change the name on your PayPal account.
