Haven't recieved money for joining through a friends referral link

New Community Member

Hi! I just created my PayPal account through a friend's referral link and I didn't recieve the $5. I followed all the steps besides adding my bank/card info, is that necessary or will the $5 just take some time to go through on its own?

I understand your concern regarding the referral promotion and I apologize for any inconvenience caused. I would recommend checking the Terms and Conditions that would have been at the bottom of the promotion,  to ensure that you have all met the criteria.
