bank confirmation

PayPal Employee

Good day to you @natrichh,


Thank you for using community forum. I am sorry you've had to deal with this issue.

If you enter your bank account number manually, you'll be prompted to confirm this bank account.

You must complete this step before you can use your bank account to make payments or add money to your PayPal account.

Within 3 business days, review your bank statement to find 2 small deposits (each between $0.01 and $0.99 USD)

that we sent to your bank account. You can also contact your bank to find out the exact amounts of these deposits. 

Please make sure to check your online bank statement.


With this information, you can complete the confirmation process online or follow the steps below:

  1. Click Wallet at the top of the page.
  2. Click the bank you want to confirm.
  3. Enter the exact amounts of the 2 deposits made to your account. For example, if you receive two deposits of $.05 and $.15, enter .05 and .15 on the screen.
  4. Click Submit.


  • Some banks combine the 2 small deposit amounts into 1 lump sum. If you only receive 1 small deposit, contact us to confirm your bank or try to link your bank instantly.
  • The small deposits are temporary and will be removed from your bank account. If the deposits are $.05 and $.15, you'll also see a debit of $.20 by PayPal on your bank statement.

I hope this helps.

We really appreciate your patience.

Keep safe.
