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

To pay using PayPal, you can link a debit or credit card with a Visa, MasterCard, JCB, American Express or Discover logo. The card must be issued in Japan and under your own name. A foreign credit card or a card registered in the name of your family members isn't accepted.

Here's how to register your card on your PayPal account:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click Link a card under "Credit and debit cards."
  3. Enter your information.
  4. Click Save.
After you've linked your card, please proceed to confirm the card.

  • A card can only be linked to one PayPal account at a time. If your card is already linked to another PayPal account, please remove it from that account and then add it to the account you want to use.
  • Diners Club cards can only be used as a Discover card. Your payments will be made in US dollars even when the prices are displayed in Japanese yen in any online shops in Japan or other countries. For the exchange rate for payments, please consult the credit card company that issued your card.
