The PayPal App is updated constantly so make sure you have the latest version. The cash a check feature is only accessible through the app because the deposit and void information is submitted through photos.

 

You can call PayPal and ask if it's possible to add the feature. The reason it may not be available is because you need to submit your identity information. Here are details on this.

You can apply for a PayPal debit card and see if the feature gets added to your account (you would want to remove the app and reinstall it to see if the feature is now available). There is one specific debit card that adds features to an account when a user signs up. Whether or not this adds the check cashing functionality to your account I cannot say for sure. Either way, if you're able to get the card it will be useful for withdrawing your money at an atm.

 

The PayPal Cash debit card is no cost and there are no monthly fees. Here is the link.

The Cash card also adds direct deposit account and routing numbers to your PayPal account for employer and government deposits.

I used the Check Cashing service 2 times on the PayPal App 3 days ago🤑 Today I went back to use the PayPal Check Cashing service and it was gone😱🤯

So I called PayPal customer service they had an open ticket for another user with the same problem and were able to add me to the open Tech Ticket to fix the problem.🙌 Hopefully it works🤞 I love this feature!
