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

Here's how:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Wallet at the top of the page.
  3. Click + Link a card or bank.
  4. Click Link a debit or credit card.
  5. Fill in your card details and click Link Card.
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.
