I see that I can use the assigned ABA routing and account number for direct deposit purposes,
does it also work for bill payments? For example, if I am trying to pay my Capital One credit card bill, can I add the ABA routing number and account number as the bank information and the payment would process and be deducted from my PayPal balance?
No, it is only for direct deposits from certain payors, not for you to do payouts such as bill payment. If you want to pay a bill, use the Money Gram Express Payment Service through your online Account Center (fees maybe applicable) if your PayPal prepaid card is linked to your PayPal account.
No where does PayPal promote this feature of using the direct deposit aba account/routing number for payouts such as bill paying. It is for direct deposit of paychecks, tax refunds, and government benefit payments.
