1The PayPal Cash Card is a debit card linked to your PayPal balance. The PayPal Cash Card is not a credit card. PayPal is not a bank and does not itself take deposits. You will not receive any interest on the funds in your PayPal Balance account. Funds you hold in a PayPal Balance account are not insured by the FDIC unless you have successfully requested a PayPal Cash Card. If you have successfully requested a PayPal Cash Card, then we will deposit the funds in your PayPal Balance account into a pooled deposit account held by us for your benefit at an FDIC-insured bank. This structure used for accounts with a PayPal Cash Card is intended to provide the funds in your PayPal Balance account with the benefit of pass-through FDIC insurance up to applicable limits.

The PayPal Cash Mastercard (“PayPal Cash Card”) is issued by The Bancorp Bank pursuant to a license by Mastercard International Incorporated. Mastercard is a registered trademark and the circles design is a trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. The Bancorp Bank is issuer of the Card only and not responsible for the associated accounts or other products, services or offers from PayPal. Card may be used everywhere Mastercard is accepted. The Bancorp Bank does not hold your PayPal Balance account funds.

2A PayPal Balance account is required to get the card.

Approval contingent on ID verification. IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card Account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents. Terms apply. See Cardholder Agreement for details.

The early access feature will be made available to all eligible Direct Deposit customers in the coming months. Early access can allow a user to access their funds up to 2 days early. Early access to funds depends on when we get payment instructions from the payor (your employer or government agency).

Availability and timing can vary based on the payor and when we get payment instructions. Once the funds are received, they will be deposited directly into your PayPal balance.
