How to Link Credit or Debit Cards to Your PayPal

So you’ve signed up for your PayPal account and are a few steps away from faster checkouts. Adding a credit or debit card not only saves the hassle of looking for payment details each time you shop, it also better guards your data as you no longer have to type in your financial information on the different websites you check out on.

Moreover, PayPal never shares your full details and monitors for any activity that seem unusual. We’ll send you a receipt for every payment, so you can keep track of your spending.

The best thing is that using PayPal to shop and pay online, you won’t need to pay any transaction fees to enjoy faster and safer checkouts, along with your card rewards and additional perks such as Buyer Protection#.

Linking your credit or debit card
There are various ways you can link your credit or debit card. If you haven’t already done so while signing up, you can do it at any time from your personal account.

STEP 1: Link from your PayPal dashboard

Once you’ve logged in, look for the Link a card button on your account dashboard and click on it.

STEP 2: Enter your credit or debit card details

Choose your card type and let us know your card details, which can be found on your physical bank card. Once you have done so, click Save.

You’ll then be taken to your bank’s website to authenticate your card. Once you enter the one-time passcode your bank will send to confirm your card, you’re done!

STEP 3: Add new credit or debit card
Using PayPal doesn’t mean you lose out on card perks. In fact, your account allows you to pick and choose the card that gives you the preferred reward points, miles and cashbacks. All you need to do is link each card once — so go ahead and link more credit or debit cards to your PayPal account to have all your rewards at hand.
