What if I want to set my PayPal Extras Mastercard account as my preferred payment method within my PayPal account?

When you apply, you’ll be asked if you’d like to set your new PayPal Extras Mastercard account as your preferred payment method for your PayPal account.

To set your PayPal Extras Mastercard as your preferred payment method after you’ve been approved, click on Wallet at the top of your PayPal account summary page. Select your PayPal Mastercard from the options on the left, then click the star icon to make it your preferred payment when paying online.

Note: If your application is placed in a pending status for review, and subsequently approved, you will need to go into your PayPal account settings by logging into your account on PayPal.com, in order to set your PayPal MasterCard as your preferred payment method for your PayPal account.
