Paypal doesn't work that way.


You can use a regular debit card (not a prepaid card) to fund your Paypal payments.  Paypal will charge your debit card when you make a payment.

But you can't transfer money from the card to your Paypal account balance.


If you wish to use a prepaid card to transfer money to your Paypal account balance, you can use either a GreenDot MoneyPak Card or Paypal My Cash Card.
