Using a Wal-Mart moneycard with Paypal?

I have figured out with lots of research that you can use them,

 

Retrieve MoneyCard Account Information
  • 1

    Visit the Walmart MoneyCard website.

  • 2

    Type in your MoneyCard number or your website user ID. Fill in your password, select your card's expiration date and type the log-in code in the appropriate box.

  • 3

    Click "Log-in."

  • 4

    Click "Online Bank Transfer" under the Add Funds tab. Scroll down until you see the section labeled "To Make a Bank Transfer Reload."

  • 5

    Write down the issuing bank name -- GE Money Bank -- the ABA Routing number and your personal ACH number. Note that the type of account is checking. You must be logged in to see this information.

  • 6

    Click "Log Out."

Adding the Walmart MoneyCard
  • 1

    Visit the PayPal website. Type in your username and password to log in.

  • 2

    Click "Profile" in the toolbar.

  • 3

    Click the "My Money" link in the panel on the left side of the screen.

  • 4

    Click the "Add My Bank" link in the Bank Accounts section on the right side of the screen.

  • 5

    Click "Checking."

  • 6

    Type the 9-digit routing number in the Routing Number box. This is the ABA Routing Number from the Walmart MoneyCard website.

  • 7

    Type your account number in the Account Number box. This is your personal ACH Number from the Walmart MoneyCard website.

  • 8

    Click "Continue." PayPal will add the MoneyCard to your account and make two small deposits to it.

  • 9

    Check your MoneyCard account to check the amounts for each deposit. Enter those amounts at the PayPal website to confirm your MoneyCard.

Transfer from PayPal
  • 1

    Sign in to your PayPal account.

  • 2

    Click "Withdraw."

  • 3

    Click the "Withdraw Funds to Your Bank Account" link in the Options box. PayPal takes you to the Withdraw Funds by Electronic Transfer page.

  • 4

    Type the amount of money to transfer in the Amount box.

  • 5

    Click the drop-down box in the To section. Choose "GE Money Bank Checking (Confirmed)."

  • 6

    Click "Continue" to open the Review Withdraw Funds page. Make sure the information on the page is correct.

  • 7

    Click "Submit" to transfer from PayPal to your Walmart MoneyCard


 

Hope this works! :smileyhappy:

Re: Using a Wal-Mart moneycard with Paypal?

Hi everyone,

 

I would not recommend that anyone add a prepaid card as a bank.

 

Financial credentials on file must be linked to your identity. Prepaid cards are not meant to be used with PayPal because they aren't associated with your verifiable information. A prepaid card is also not a bank, and representing it as a bank may result in limitations or potentially permanent account closure. I don't want to see anyone try this and find that they can no longer use PayPal as a result.

 

If you're interested in adding cash to a PayPal account, look into Green Dot MoneyPak. It's designed to work with PayPal securely.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Olivia
