How do I add and confirm a U.S. bank account?

Although your home address is in Israel, if you have a bank account in the United States, you can link and confirm it in your PayPal account.

Here is how to add a bank account in the U.S.:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click + Add a bank under 'Bank accounts'.
  3. Click Add a U.S. bank account instead.
  4. Select Checking or Savings.
  5. Enter the bank's routing number and your account number, then click Add Bank.

Note:

  • Your routing number is the first set of numbers at the bottom of your check. The routing number usually has 9 digits.
  • Your bank account number is the second set of numbers at the bottom of your check.
  • If you receive the message, 'You have entered an invalid bank routing number,' you may have typed the number wrong, or we may not accept your bank.
  • Checking and savings accounts from the same bank may have different routing numbers.
  • In order to move money from your bank account to your PayPal account, you need to confirm your bank account.
  • You can't add Capital One 360 or Payoneer accounts to your PayPal account as a payment method.

Here’s how to confirm your U.S. bank account:

We’ll make 2 small deposits (between $0.01 USD and $0.99 USD) to your bank account.
Wait 3-5 days for your bank to process the deposits, then check your bank account to find out the deposit amounts.
  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click the bank you want to confirm.
  3. Enter the exact amounts of the 2 deposits made to your account, then click Submit.
