Can I Use Prepaid Cards on PayPal

Yes! You can attach a prepaid card to your PayPal account. We were successfully able to add Amex Serve, Green Dot & NetSpend to our PayPal account. I do believe users must also attach 1 bank account to PayPal in order to use it without limitations and this is where Green Dot comes in handy again. Green Dot for unknown reasons are capable of passing the test when trying to add it to PayPal as a bank account. Many other prepaid cards cannot do this. If you try to attach a prepaid card as a bank account in PayPal I would strongly recommend Green Dot.

Do I Have to Verify My Prepaid Card?

Yes, users have to verify their prepaid card with PayPal but not with personal information, identification or documents. PayPal will either charge or make a deposit to their prepaid card (usually a few cents up to $1). Users have to keep an eye out for this deposit or charge by looking at their prepaid card transaction history. Once you see PayPal in your transaction history focus on the charge/deposit amount. In your PayPal account , PayPal will ask users to enter the amount that they have deposited/charged to the prepaid card. Enter that amount into PayPal to verify the card.
