Add Revolut account to Paypal

Hello!

I tried to add my Revolut euro account to Paypal and the message is that the account is not valid. Is there a way to link my Revolut euro account to Paypal?

Thanks in advance

Hello :slight_smile:

I am currently handling this issue with them.
They said they were unable to contact :r:. The issue is escalated to the technical team since 4 days ago, and I’m receiving a daily call with the progress :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The last info I have is they’re “working on the implementation”.

You also need to go into your Revolut App and go to “Cards > Security > Enable e-commerce transactions” which is set to “Disable” by default…

It’s disabled by default, but it actually says Disable e-commerce transactions, so keep the option disabled for online transactions. Also, that setting only affects card payments, not the bank account :slight_smile:

when i tried to add my revolut card to paypal, i couldnt till i realized, there must be $, so exchange some euro to dollars and you will add your card with no further problems. At least that was my case, and this was a month ago. I dont know if there is any other issues right now.

Hello Revodrago :slight_smile:

The card dynamically converts funds from one balance to another when spending, so, in theory, this shouldn’t have been a problem.

Anyway, we’re trying to add (I believe) our bank account, the EUR IBAN :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Well, it should but it did. And i wasnt the only one who had that problem, so im sure it wasnt exclusively to me. I will follow this topic, to stay informed about the iban issue!

That’s why I added the “in theory” :stuck_out_tongue:
I will post here any news I have from PayPal.

Did you try to choose UK as a living country?

What do you exactly mean with that? :confused:

Revolut cards are issued in the UK, maybe PayPal is finding address mismatch.

Yup, but we’re trying to add the bank account. The IBAN :slight_smile:

Following this discussion as I have the same issue. Just talked to PayPal support and they said that most likely Revolut is too new or something like that.
Really hope that this will be fixed asap
