Linking your Monese card is so easy it can be done in just 2 simple steps! Follow our guide below and you’ll soon be ready to shop!
Step 1: Add the card
Start by logging into your PayPal account. Then go to ‘Wallet’ in the top menu bar.
Then choose ‘Link a card’ at the bottom right, under ‘Credit Cards’. Next, you need to enter your Monese card details and click ‘Save’. Please note: Although your Monese card is a debit card and not a credit card, PayPal will accept it just the same.
Tadaa! Your Monese card will now show up in your cards list. Phew, now that’s done let’s move on to step 2:
Step 2: Confirm your card
Once you have added the card to PayPal, you can choose to verify it. A verified card lifts the PayPal spending limits. To do that, simply choose your newly added Monese card and click ‘Confirm Card’. PayPal will then charge your Monese card £1 to make sure it’s yours, so make sure you have funds on your Monese account for PayPal’s verification charge. Don’t worry, they’ll refund it into your account within 24 hours after you have confirmed the card.
If you don’t have any funds on your Monese account, but you wish to link your card, our support team can help you out. Just let us know via email at [email protected] or call us on +44 (0) 1706 304 001 and we’ll temporarily put £1 on your Monese account so you can link your card.
After you have selected to confirm your card, you should receive a push notification from your Monese app about your card being charged by PayPal. Check your Monese account by logging into the app, then check your transaction history. You will notice a code starting with ‘Pp’ in the reference of PayPal’s charge:
Now head back to PayPal and log in. Click on your Monese card, select ‘Confirm Card’ again, then enter the 4 numbers from that code.
And that’s it! Your Monese card is now fully linked to your PayPal account and ready for action.
