Paypal Business Debit Card can only be Funded with Bank Account Starting in March
Paypal just sent out an email to their Paypal Business Debit cardholders indicating that beginning March 11 it will only be possible to have the backup funding on the card (in the event there are no funds in the Paypal account) come from a bank account. Previously, it was possible to link a Paypal/Ebay credit card as well.
Beginning March 11, 2019, a linked bank account will be the only backup funding source supported for your PayPal Business Debit Card. Any other currently linked backup funding source will automatically be unlinked from your PayPal Business Debit Card, including the PayPal Extras Mastercard, PayPal Smart Connect account, PayPal Cashback Mastercard, and eBay Mastercard.
PayPal encourages cardholders to link a bank account so purchases can be made even when funds are not available in your PayPal balance.
End of an era. If it had to end, I sorta like the way it’s ending. Much calmer ending than anticipated.
