How do I link, remove, or change a credit card or prepaid card?

To link a credit card or prepaid card with your PayPal account:

  1. Click Wallet near the top of the page.
  2. Click Link a card.
  3. Fill in the required information, and then click Save.

Verified users can add up to 8 cards. However, each credit card or prepaid card can only be registered to one PayPal account at a time.

Note: each time you add a card or update the information, the equivalent of US$ 1.00 is blocked on the card in order to verify the validity. This is not an actual charge and the amount will be released after a short time. If, after 30 days, you still see this item, please contact your card issuer.
