1 Direct Deposit is subject to the payor's support of this feature. Funds deposited via Direct Deposit will generally be available on the day we receive the funds transfer. You may review activity on your periodic statements or transaction history on www.PayPal.com, or call Customer Service at 1-888-221-1161 to verify receipt. We reserve the right to accept, reject, or limit transfers via Direct Deposit in our sole discretion. If you wish to cancel Direct Deposits, you must contact your employer. PayPal does not charge any fee to set up or maintain Direct Deposit. Refer to your PayPal User Agreement for complete Direct Deposit details.
Once it's set up, Direct Deposit usually takes two (2) pay cycles to begin, but can vary across employers. Please check with your employer for specific timing.
2 New Direct Deposit enrollees will be eligible for early access, subject to the terms and conditions. The early access feature will be made available to all eligible Direct Deposit customers in the coming months. Early access can allow a user to access their funds up to 2 days early. Early access to funds depends on when we get payment instructions from the payor (your employer or government agency). When we get funds before the scheduled payment date, your money can be made available up to 2 days sooner than scheduled. Availability and timing can vary based on the payor and when we get payment instructions. Once the funds are received, they will be deposited directly into your PayPal balance.
3 An account with PayPal is required for sending and receiving money.
4 The PayPal Cash Card is a debit card linked to your PayPal Balance account. The PayPal Cash Card is not a credit card. PayPal is not a bank and does not itself take deposits. You will not receive any interest on the funds in your PayPal Balance account. Cash funds held in a PayPal Balance account are not eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance coverage unless you have a PayPal Cash Card, or have enrolled in Direct Deposit, or have bought cryptocurrency. If your PayPal Balance account is eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance, PayPal will deposit your cash funds into one or more custodial accounts maintained for the benefit of eligible customers at one or more FDIC-insured banks. Funds in these custodial accounts are eligible for pass-through FDIC insurance coverage up to applicable limits. See the PayPal Balance Terms and Conditions for additional information.
