Activating New Debit Card

How do I activate my new PayPal Business Debit Mastercard?

Re: Activating New Debit Card

Hi @taglaca,

 

Welcome to the community! I'm sorry that there is any confusion about how to activate your new card.

 

You can visit http://www.paypal.com/activatecard, or you can click on the PayPal Business Debit MasterCard link in your PayPal account summary. Either of those will take you to where you can click "activate" next to the new card information, and enter the information required to get the card up and running.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Olivia

Re: Activating New Debit Card

I am having the same issue.  There is no place to click "Activate Card".  Link to "Manage Cards" doesn't work either.

Paypal, you are so worthless.  I am having this same problem and your help thng whatever does not work it is completely out of date and inaccurate and i should not have to call.  calling is primitive.  apes use telephones.  i do not want to use a telephone as I do not have one, so i cannot call.  you need to fix this.

I followed the instructions but it does not give me the opportunity to "click" next to my card, even though I received my new one in the mail?

Re: Activating New Debit Card

Me, too! I cannot activate the new card, and have followed every instruction in order to do so. The email link just sends me to an invalid URL, clicking "Manage Cards" does nothing (same thing for "Continue" when trying to update the name on the account, by the way), and there is NO "Activate" anywhere. I have looked all over, and have tried on multiple devices, from mobile app, to website, to different browsers on a PC. NOTHING IS WORKING! PayPal, please help us!

Re: Activating New Debit Card

i just received my new card and came across this page trying to find the answer. spent a good while clicking most of the links in my account but did find how to activate and thought id share it to help anyone else having this problem since the link given on the card sticker and the "did you get it" email are dead.

 

log into your PayPal account and on the summary page scroll down a little until you find the PayPal debit MasterCard link right under your balance on the left side. click on that link and then under the available money on the new page will be a manage cards section, on the left side again. find the one with the number for your new card and hit the link under it (if its active it says "set up" if it needs to be activated it says "activate"). then just enter the info and its done.

No matter which way i try to activate the card which has already been used is impossible ! I have tried editing and adding it as a new card to no avail. How hard should it be paypal to add a card !
