If you have been searching for how to set up your Visa Debit Card in Paypal in order to receive money, then you will want to check this video out.
If you are in Trinidad and Tobago, this is what you will need:
- JMMB or Venture Credit Union Visa Debit Card
- Enable Automatic Transfers on your account
The most important thing is to have your Visa Debit card from JMMB or Venture credit union. While Linx Visa Debit cards cannot be connected to Paypal, Visa credit cards except RBC’s can receive funds from Paypal.
Mastercards can also NOT receive funds from Paypal in the Caribbean. RBC has also blocked their Visa credit cards from receiving funds from Paypal as well.
If you are adding the Visa debit card for the first time, you will have the option to enable the automatic transfers and if you have registered your account already but are not able to receive payments, you will need to contact Paypal’s Account Specialist in order for them to activate the feature.
If you are someone who is trying to receive money internationally and when you are being sent the money, are getting an error message about government regulations or that your account is blocked from receiving money…You will need to contact Paypal support and do 2 things.
First, you will need to ensure that Automatic Transfers were setup, this is a MUST! Secondly, you must tell the account specialist the error you are getting when being sent funds and they will review your account to ensure it is set up to receive money.
All accounts in Trinidad and Tobago are usually blocked from receiving funds once Automatic Transfers is not enabled. So this will usually fix the block on your account but I always advise people to let Paypal know about the error you are getting so that they review your account.
I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to drop it in the comment section and I’ll respond.
