Paypal debit card

Does anyone have the paypal debit card? If so is it worth it to get it? Are there a lot of fees with it? I am thinking about getting one if it is worth it. The main reason I would like to get one is for my shopping online. I have other cards but my mother has taken them. My bank account is kind of hers for right now. I don't mind because I hardly ever use it. Her credit is bad so she is trying to get all of that straightened out. I don't really care about her using it at all. I just want a card that I can use for when I need to get something. Since you can't use paypal on every site I thought maybe the debit card would be good.

I honestly can't remember right now. I did it a couple years ago. I will go to my account and see if I can see if that is still an option now.

Orrangge, you have to have a premier account to sign up for the money market fund. I can't remember what the "cash back" deal was on the debit card, but I remember it wasn't something I wanted to do. Just go into paypal and search for debit card. It has all the information you need.

I am not trying to be mean but I had this same exact discussion like two days ago. You need to go to the search bar at the top and type in paypal debt card my dicussion will come up. I am sure it will answer your questions by the responses I got. People more and likely will not answer this because they already did.

I searched - using the search field - for your discussion and I didn't find it. Maybe it was deleted or not tagged.

I think you are very rude. So what if you started the same topic.

You do need to upgrade your account or premier or business to get a card. To use the card is free - unless you pull money out of an ATM then you are charged the bank fees. However, your paypal incoming transactions are a bit higher - .30 + 2.3%; so like on $700 paypal takes $20.

I think it is premier right now but I think I have to wait another 30 days or something like that. I read somewhere on the site that you need to be on premier or business for 60 days. I think I have another 30 days to apply for it. If I read all of that correctly. Thanks for your response.

I have a debit card from Paypal. It doesnt have any fees or charges. Its good but I think you have to upgrade your account to premier to be able to apply for one.

I just got my paypal debit card. I like leaving my money in my paypal account because I joined the moneymarket fund and it pays me interest. When I would make purchases from vendors who didn't accept paypal, I'd have to transfer money from paypal to my bank account, then pay for it with my bank debit card. Now I don't have to take that extra step. I think if you check Paypal out and read all about the debit card you will find there are no fees attached.

this is wonderful. I had the same exact topic 4 weeks ago and if this person wasnt lazy and would have searched this topic before she posted then she would have found her answer. Plus you never ever responded to it but yet you will respond to this one.

Can you please tell me how to search for discussions in myLot? I typed in PayPal debit card in the search box and selected myLot. There were some discussion listed but there weren't any concerning paypal debit card. I've been frustrated by this for the whole 3 months I've been on here. I'd search, find nothing, post a discussion and lo and behold after I posted it, right there underneath mine would be "related posts", but none of them showed up in the search.

Oh, and by the way, I didn't have my paypal debit card 4 weeks ago, so if I saw your post I wouldn't have been able to answer.
