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

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

To add a card to your PayPal account:

  1. Go to Payment methods.
  2. Click Link a card under "Credit and debit cards".
  3. Enter your card information.
  4. Click Save.
In some cases, in order to ensure you’re the card owner, we may ask you to confirm your card. If you see a “confirm credit card” link in the card details section of your PayPal Wallet, you’ll need to confirm your card before you can use it with PayPal. If you don’t see this link, you can begin using your card right away.
