NetSpend, a financial organization that specializes in prepaid debit cards, issues a routing number and account number with its cards so you can reload the card with money and use it repeatedly. To load the card from PayPal, simply link your NetSpend account to your PayPal account as you would any other bank account.

Link Your NetSpend Account

  1. Log into your PayPal account.
  2. Click the "Wallet" button on the top tool bar.
  3. Choose "Link a Bank Account."
  4. Enter the account and routing numbers.
  5. Hit "Continue."
  6. Review the entered information and hit "Add Bank Account."

Verify NetSpend Account

To confirm your NetSpend account, PayPal will deposit two small payments into your NetSpend account; each payment will be less than $1. Log into your NetSpend account and get the amount of those two deposits. Log back into your PayPal account and choose "Wallet" to go to your bank account page. Click on the NetSpend account and enter the two deposit amounts to confirm your account.

Tip

Online bank accounts, such as NetSpend, can be confirmed immediately after linking the account.

Transfer Funds to NetSpend Card

  1. Log into your PayPal account.
  2. Click the "Transfer to Your Bank" button, located directly below your balance on your home account page.
  3. Enter the amount of money to add to the NetSpend card.
  4. Choose the NetSpend account as the destination account.
  5. Click "Continue."
  6. Review the amount and click "Submit."

Warning

It can take two to four days to transfer your funds from your PayPal account to the NetSpend card.
