How to Add PayPal to Amazon Account?

You can’t directly add PayPal eWallet – to your Amazon account and use it to pay for any and every purchase that you make through the Amazon website. To circumvent this, you need to add the PayPal card as a payment method to your account.

  • Since Amazon, doesn’t directly accept PayPal as a payment method, you will not be able to pay from your wallet account directly.
  • Luckily, PayPal has the option that you can apply for a business debit card so you should apply for this card first.
  • Once you receive the PayPal business debit card, you can add that as a payment method under the payments option of your account.
  • After adding it as a payment method, you can select it while purchasing an item to pay using your PayPal account.
