How do I add money to my PayPal balance?

Adding money to your PayPal account is quick and easy. You can link a bank account to fund your PayPal balance or you can use PayPal CASH®.

Add money to your PayPal balance from your bank account:

A great way to add money to your PayPal account is to link it directly to your bank account. This way, you can transfer money securely to your PayPal account at any time and at no cost. It usually takes 3-4 business days for the transfer to go through. We'll email you each time a transfer is complete:
  1. Click Add money below your PayPal balance.
  2. Enter the amount you want to transfer and click Add.
Add money using PayPal CASH:
 
This is an easy way to add money to your PayPal account from a local retailer location. Log in and pick a retailer. We’ll make a custom barcode to print out or present on your smartphone. Bring your cash and barcode to the register at the retailer. A service fee of $3.95 will apply. Your money will automatically be added to your PayPal account, and you’ll receive an email confirmation.
