Lona, No, you might even walk in to an FNB and they won't know what Paypal is.  Go to FNB (on the internet) and set up your Internet Banking.  Think of it as a vessel carrying you somewhere.  You don't even have to be a client of theirs.  The only time you are going to use FNB is when you use it for your Paypal funds.  Once you have that go to Paypal and start setting everything up there.  That is where you link your cards.  Remember, when you withdraw from Paypal, you go on to FNB and through them you can withdraw to any other bank account.  Hope that helps a little.  Bridgitte

Hello @Simba3 

 

How to add a Credit/Visa/Cheque card to PayPal account in South Africa

Please note that you can't add your debit card.

 

  1. Login to your PayPal account
  2. Click on Profile, from the drop down menu, click on your account name (business name or name used in creating your account)
  3. On the left Menu click on My Money
  4. Click on the update link next to Debit and Credit cards
  5. Then click on the link that says Add card
  6. Fill in your card details and click on Add card at the bottom of the page
  7. Your account will go through a verification process, an amount ( approximately USD1) will be deducted from your card and re-deposited within the same day or the next day. Please follow the instructions that will be sent to your e-mail.
  8. Done! you can make purchases online without depositing money into your paypal account. The money will be taken from your account by PayPal directly.

Do let us know should you need further assistance on this.

 

Regards,

Boitumelo

Please check, but if I am not mistaken it has to be a credit card that you link to your paypal account on Paypal. I have been using it for 12 years and have 2 credit cards linked from 2 different banks. At FNB you can link your paypal account to your FNB transaction account on their browser application, to transfer Paypal $ to your local ZAR account.

Apparently FNB has an Online Feature that makes it easier to link an account with PayPal...

Will try that out as my bank seem to struggle with this.

Go the FNB route...

you can create a FNB Profile free without an account.

Hope Standardbank get with the times soon...

And it specifically states your card was declined by issuing Bank, contact your card issuer.
