Why can't I add a bank account to my PayPal account?
You may be unable to add your bank account if:
- The bank account is already active on 2 PayPal accounts. A bank account cannot be active on 3 PayPal accounts at the same time. Try removing the bank account from the PayPal account it’s currently linked to. There is help if you forgot your login details.
- The bank account has been linked to 3 PayPal accounts (in total) in the past. A bank account cannot be linked to any more than 3 PayPal accounts over its lifetime.
- The name on the bank account does not match the name on the PayPal account.
- The bank account is already active on a PayPal account that has a limitation or a balance below zero.
