How do I top up/add money to my PayPal account from my bank account?

You don't need to have money in your PayPal account to make a payment. As long as you've linked a credit or debit card, you can start paying with PayPal.

If you want to top up your PayPal account with your bank account, you can do so from a confirmed bank account. Here's how:

  1. Go to your Wallet.
  2. Click Top up.
  3. Choose your bank account and click Continue.
  4. Follow the instructions on page.
If you use your DBS/POSB bank account, the funds will be available to you within 1-2 business days. If you use other local bank account, the funds should be available within 4-6 business days.

  • We don’t charge a fee to top-up funds from your bank account. Your bank may charge a fee to transfer the funds.
  • You can only top up in Singapore Dollars.
  • If you want to make a payment in a currency other than SGD, our currency conversion rate includes 2.5% processing fee. You might want to add enough funds to cover the fee.
