How do I change my payment preferences for in-store checkout?

When you use PayPal at the register, the payment will be taken from the preferred payment method you set up in your Payment Preferences and the default funding methods – pulling from your balance first, then PayPal Credit®, bank account, or card on file. With PayPal in stores, you have flexibility to choose which way you want to pay.

You can manage your payment preferences for online checkout in Settings.

Here's how to change your payment preferences for PayPal in-store checkout:

  1. Log in to PayPal.
  2. Click the Settings icon next to "Log out."
  3. Click Edit next to "Payment preferences."
  4. Click your preferred payment method under "Paying in stores."

If you have a business account, you can only change your In-store checkout settings through the PayPal app on your iPhone or Android phone. Simply tap Settings in the app and choose how you want to pay. If you have a PayPal Payment card, tap Wallet to turn it on or off.


How do I change my In-Store PIN?

Here's how to create or change your PIN:

  1. Log in to PayPal.
  2. Click the Settings icon next to "Log out."
  3. Click Security.
  4. Click Edit next to "Mobile PIN."
  5. Create or change your 4-8 digit (no letters) PIN and click Add or change PIN.

Remember, your PIN is the same for your PayPal app, mobile number transactions, and your PayPal payment card.
