Transfer Money To Your Bank Account
One of the easiest ways to use Paypal on Amazon is to simply move the funds to an account that Amazon accepts. If you are thinking of transferring money from Paypal to your bank account for free, it can be a tedious process. It includes:
- Linking your bank account (be it checking or savings account)
- You have to wait for Paypal to deposit some funds for account verification
- You have to wait for up to 10 days for a money transfer out of your Paypal account.
However, if you are willing to transfer with a fee, you could do it instantly. An instant balance transfer fee is 1% of the transferred amount, up to a maximum of $10.
However, if you are only transferring $100, that’s just a $1 fee for an instant transfer. If you are using a debit card, you don’t have to wait for account verification.
Here is how it works:
- Sign into your Paypal account and choose Transfer Money.
- Choose Transfer to your bank. Here you have two options, you can either choose the standard (free) transfer that can take several days, or go with the instant option.
- If you are yet to link a debit card for the free option, just choose Link an eligible debit card or bank.
- On the next screen, select Link an eligible debit card (Don’t select the bank account as that will require deposits for verification)
- On the link card page, simply enter your debit card details and choose Link Card.
Immediately your debit card is linked, you can go back to the money transfer screen again and carry out an instant transfer of the amount you need to make the Amazon purchase. Then proceed to Amazon, and purchase the item you want.
You can now see the different options you have to shop at Amazon with your Paypal credit. Take advantage of them.
