Login to your existing PayPal account and click either the ‘Add a credit card’ link (if you haven’t yet added a credit card to your account) or the ‘Link and confirm my debit or credit card’ link.

To start the verification process to confirm your credit card, click ‘Save and Continue’ to authorise a SG$3.00 charge and also generate a 4-digit PayPal code. The 4-digit PayPal code will appear on your credit card statement in 3-4 business days.

To complete the verification process and confirm your credit card, enter your 4-digit PayPal code.
Note: It may take 3-4 business days for the code to appear on your online account statement. To expedite this process, we recommend logging in to your credit card statement online to get your code. If you are not able to access your credit card statement online, this process could take up to 30 days or until you receive your next statement with the post.
Remember, once you are verified, you will need to link your eBay and PayPal accounts to complete the process. Learn how.
