Individuals and Business: steps to follow to register a bank account with a PayPal account

The procedure for registering a bank account on the PayPal account as an individual is simple. Simply access the portfolio and click on Save to Bank Account. You will then have to enter the required information and continue the operation by validating this data by clicking on Continue. All that remains is to let yourself be guided.

Confirm a bank account

Confirming a bank account is done by going to the Portfolio section and logging into your account. After selecting the bank account you wish to confirm, simply click on Confirm and 2 small amounts between 0.01 and 0.99 € will be credited to the bank account. This transaction will be mentioned on the bank statement within 1 to 2 business days.

This bank protection measure provides the necessary code for account confirmation. After having read the 2 amounts, you will have to enter them in order to confirm the bank account. It should be noted that there is an insurance system that automatically deactivates a bank account when you enter the two amounts incorrectly 3 times.
