What is the PayPal Debit Card and how do I get one?

To apply for a PayPal Debit Card, click Get The Card on the PayPal Debit Card page, and follow the instructions to request your card.

The PayPal Debit Card isn’t a credit card, so no credit check is required.

You can shop with your card details as soon as you sign up and create your Debit Card pin, even before you get the physical card in the mail. Once you receive the physical card, the digital card will no longer be active.   

To shop online with your digital card:    

  1. Tap image  Wallet.  
  2. Select your PayPal Debit Card.  
  3. Tap the Eye icon located on the PayPal Debit Card and click Copy. This will copy the 16-digit card number.   

To shop in-store, add the 16-digit card number to your Google Wallet and tap to pay.

With the PayPal Debit Card, you can:

  • Instantly access your money in PayPal.
  • Use your funds in PayPal to make purchases in stores or online anywhere Mastercard® is accepted.
  • Withdraw money from PayPal at ATMs worldwide.
  • Add cash to PayPal in tens of thousands of stores nationwide where cash reloading is supported.

Are there any fees?
There are no annual or monthly fees to own the PayPal Debit Card. There's also no fee to purchase in-stores or online using your PayPal Debit Card, or when you withdraw at MoneyPass ATMs; both the ATM surcharge and PayPal fees are waived. Learn more about the fees.
