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

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

Here's how:

  1. Go to Wallet.
  2. Click Link a card under "Credit and debit cards".
  3. Select your card type and enter the required information.
  4. Click Save.


When you add a card, you may be notified of a 1.6 SGD charge to your card. The charge on your card is temporary to confirm if your card is ready to use with PayPal. It usually takes a few minutes to receive the refund back to your card, but it can take up to 30 days depending on your card issuer.
