Adding Revolut to US PayPal

#1

Hey. Has anyone had any luck adding a Revolut card to an American PayPal account? As the Revolut card is registered to a European account rather than American, it won’t let me add my card.

I did it few months ago with a virtual Visa card.

I haven’t tried with virtual card but I’ve struggled with others. Will give a try and let others know as well.

Nope, didn’t work. Tells me to check zip code and billing address, but I can’t add my original one.

Oh, I see.
I guess that’s a new policy from PayPal. Friend of friend can’t add his revolut card to PayPal because the card issuer is outside his country. He is from France.

Would be interesting to see how it is with a relatively new Premium or the Metal cards. Their BIN account ranges code matches a customer’s billing address now. “Check billing address” could also mean that the billing address and the issuance code do not match, or does it explicitly say one needs a card with a billing address in the US?

I had this address problem when adding a virtual card to PayPal in another non-European country. After a few attempts to add it (and being rejected for having the wrong address), it finally worked.

As far as I know, the BIN of the Premium and Metal card matches France, not the users location.

Bin databases are misleading here, I believe. Check the thread about Apple Pay :wink:
