Can't Use a Paypal Account with No Credit Card

Billing FAQ

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?

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.

  • A debit card isn’t an option for me either.

  • Hi Jarland,

    There is no option to pay without a credit card via the Paypal form. This is very frustrating for startup companies that have to wait a certain amount of months before they can request a credit card.
