Get your PayPal Access Card - Eligible Customers Only

Found 30th Apr 2015
PayPal are rolling out the access card again which until recently they were not allowing people to sign up for.

Just signed into PayPal and got my invite for one, I'm guessing a lot of other people will be eligible too.

People can also apply for one now if they`re not invited and they are accepting a lot of people so it's worth a try!

Whats the benefit of the card?

Just about to type the same DaveWave - seems pointless!

I thought they'd relaunched Access cards.

"Does you do or does you don't take Access"

But I don't really understand it? How do I pay the card off. Do I pay on this then it charges my normal CC

Nothing much, used to be good to get your cash the same day but they got made to allow 2hr fast payments last year so for some people it's just easier to withdraw to there bank. Always found one handy to have tho if you sell online allot Incase PayPal don't let you do a instant withdrawal which they do occasionally and make you wait 72hrs

Not sure if there are additional benefits to what it used to be, but it allows payments to be made direct from your PayPal account.

I don't think it will be as beneficial now to what it used to be given that requests from PayPal to your bank are almost instant, but I used it a hell of a lot the previous time (around 4-5 years ago).

Had one of these for about 3 years. Didn't know they were limited.

I have two PayPal accounts one for business and one personal, I linked my bank to one account and got the access card 3 years ago I then unlinked my bank account and linked it to my business account, so I got one account with the card which is basically a MasterCard and the other account is linked to my bank for depositing PayPal cash, just means I can get at my personal money quicker as PayPal only let you link one account to each bank account.

They are also good if you can't remember your PIN number as they use contact less payments, I also give my card to my niece when she wants some pocket money and when she uses it I get a push notification on my phone telling me how much and where she is spending my money.

All in all I think they are a good idea for many reason.

Had one of these for a few years now. Just a way of spending funds in your PayPal account.

Says I'm not eligible....

Might as well take advantage. Signed up.

Not letting me sign up, I've been with PayPal for many many years x

I tried to apply via your link but after login I got this message, I take it this is because it's your own link as not supposed to be for anyone else!

From the FAQ section ;
What is the PayPal Access Card?
The PayPal Access Card can give you instant access to the money in your PayPal account with no need to top up. You can use it to withdraw cash, to shop online and on the high street, at home or overseas, wherever MasterCard is accepted. It is issued for PayPal by PrePay Technologies Ltd.

Benefits are that you are able to attach their card to pay through PayPal where PayPal payment is not available.

Sadly I not qualify for this. Cold

one benefit is as it's MasterCard you can use it where normal PayPal isn't accepted, such as Amazon, and it'll come off your PayPal balance



I think Amazon have since stopped this
