I don't believe Paypal links to Plaid and it has been the BANE of my existence. It makes me want to switch banks. I've lost opportunities for credit cards, autopay, all kinds of stuff just because it's not on the plaid network. I love Paypal, I have my whole family on it and I get direct deposit, but if they don't connect soon I think I'm going to have to switch to a "real" bank like PNC. It takes days to transfer money to another bank account and I just hate it.
