FAQs

How does PayPal work?

It's simple, really. When you shop online, choose PayPal when paying for your items. You'll be asked to log into your PayPal account using your email address and password. Click to confirm your payment and then you're done.

By the way, you can also use your PayPal account to send payments and get paid online.

Is PayPal secure?

Your financial security is our highest priority. You're protected from any unauthorised payment made from your PayPal account.

Can I use PayPal and still collect credit card reward points?

Yes.* Just link your credit card to your PayPal account, either when you sign up or by updating your account profile. Once your card is linked to your PayPal account, select your credit card as your method of payment when you check out using PayPal. You'll speed through checkout AND earn that vacation to Tahiti!

To view and edit your account profile, log into your PayPal account and click on Profile at the top of the page.

* If in doubt, please check with your credit card provider.

Can I use PayPal without money in my PayPal account?

Yes, you can. To pay for things or to send payments, simply link your bank account or credit card to your PayPal account. You can do this when you sign up for an account, or by updating your PayPal account profile. To view and edit your profile, log in to your PayPal account and click on Profile at the top of the page.

How do I use my credit card or bank account with PayPal?

It's easy. When you make a payment or send payments, PayPal uses your PayPal balance first to cover the payment. If your PayPal balance doesn’t cover the transaction, the bank account, credit card, or debit card you linked to your PayPal account will be used for the payment.

Can I withdraw money from my PayPal account to my bank account?

Yes. It takes about 3-5 business days. Just log into your PayPal account and click Withdraw at the top of the page.
