Can PayPal resend the PayPal code for my debit or credit card so I can confirm it?

If you want to confirm your debit or credit card, but cannot find your PayPal code, you can request a new one to be resent.

Here's how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click My Account.
  3. Click Confirm my debit or credit card in the To Do List box.
  4. Click Resend PayPal Code at the bottom of the page. If there is more than one card listed, choose the appropriate card from the drop-down menu.
  5. Click Save and Continue.

When you click Save and Continue, your card is charged a small fee. If you have online access to your card statement, it'll take a few business days for the charge to appear, depending on your issuing bank. If you do not have online access, you'll need to wait for your statement in the mail. Your unique, randomly generated 4-digit PayPal code is displayed on your statement near the PayPal fee. In the item description section, you will see it next to the word PAYPAL. You need it to confirm your card.

Note: A new PayPal code may be requested up to 3 times.
