1 An account with PayPal is required to send and receive money.

2 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.
