i just received my new card and came across this page trying to find the answer. spent a good while clicking most of the links in my account but did find how to activate and thought id share it to help anyone else having this problem since the link given on the card sticker and the "did you get it" email are dead. log into your PayPal account and on the summary page scroll down a little until you find the PayPal debit MasterCard link right under your balance on the left side. click on that link and then under the available money on the new page will be a manage cards section, on the left side again. find the one with the number for your new card and hit the link under it (if its active it says "set up" if it needs to be activated it says "activate"). then just enter the info and its done.
