Question

Can't Use a Paypal Account with No Credit Card

I have tried to add $5 to my account using Paypal, but Paypal says: “The merchant requires you to provide a confirmed address for delivery. To confirm your address, please link a card associated with that address.” I don’t have a credit card to add to my account. Is there a way to pay with Paypal credit?

Hello there,

We accept pre-payment using PayPal but you cannot use it as your primary payment method.

When using PayPal, your account balance will update after your payment is processed, which often takes several hours due to PayPal’s processing. PayPal also sometimes holds payments for up to 72 hours, meaning PayPal has received your money but hasn’t sent it to us yet, but the payment will still apply once PayPal releases it.

Hope that this helps!

Hi there!

The key here is the confirmed address that we use primarily for taxation. A debit card should work fine with PayPal as well for confirming this if you happen to have one.

If I can be of any further assistance, please be sure to let me know.
