Paid through PayPal?

Posted by on Apr. 25, 2014 at 8:38 AM

I notice some of you earn money through survey sites and I am considering doing this for a little extra income for gas and groceries.  I notice many sites want to pay you through paypal and I don't have an account.  We have ran on cash only for the past two years.  Can anyone let me know how it works through paypal?

Thanks

paypal gets linked to your bank, you get paid PP and then free transfer to your bank acct in a couple days and then you use the cash anywhere, it is a good option

i also get amazon cards...sometimes walmart or cvs or other places too

Unless they have changed the rules since I've signed up (15 years ago) you don't need to connect it to a bank account. You can get a pay pal debit card and use that as your bank account.

This, when I get paid through My Memories, it comes via Paypal and linked through my bank.When I attached the accounts 2 years ago, it had to be a FICU Bank. You would have to check it out. I get all my survey sites and other business payments through PayPal. LOVE it.

I think Pay Pal has prepaid debit cards.  You could sign up for one of them.

My son has one, he could only use it online. We couldn't figure out how to use it at Comic Con last week at the vendors that had card readers. So I am not to sure how it would work offline.

I have it linked to my bank account so that I can use it to pay for online purchases via paypal or else move the money back to my bank.  I also have a Paypal debit card that works only if I have money in my Paypal account...I can use it online or at a physical store.

This. We have PayPal mastercards for our business account. It's a debit and we earn 1% back. not bad considering its a debit card.

I love Pay Pal!  Registering for an account is easy. Apply for the debit card and you can withdraw your funds at anytime as long as they are available.

Do you use a square for your business? I've heard you can link them to the paypal account instead of a traditional brick and morter bank account.

I'm not sure how it works through those sites, but I am guessing they will deposit to your account and them you would transfer to your bank account.
