How to Add Money to PayPal With a Debit Card

PayPal is a website that allows you to make payments online, accept payments online and transfer money to your bank accounts. You can add money to your PayPal account balance from your bank account or by accepting PayPal payments. You cannot technically add funds to your PayPal account with a debit card, but you can put a debit card on file and use it to make purchases or send payments through PayPal. Once you add a debit card to your PayPal account, you can use the PayPal checkout option on websites or send money to other PayPal users without having to enter your debit card information.


Step 1

Go to PayPal's website and log in to your account. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can register for a free account by clicking "Sign Up" on the PayPal homepage and following the instructions. Once you log in, PayPal will direct you to your "My Account" page.

Step 2

Click the "Profile" link, located in the top menu bar of your "My Account" page, then select "Add or Edit Credit Card" from the drop-down menu. The "Add/Edit Credit Card" feature works with both credit cards and debit cards.

Step 3

Fill out the fields with your debit card information. The name on the debit card you add to PayPal must match the name that you used to create your account. Select your billing address or enter a new one, then click the "Add Credit Card" button at the bottom of the page. PayPal takes you to your "Add/Edit Credit Card" page with a notice to confirm that you have successfully added a debit card.



Use the "Add/Edit Credit Card" page to add new debit or credit cards, or edit your existing cards on file. Confirm your bank account to achieve “Verified” status on PayPal, which removes your money transfer limit.
