If you are able to link a card to your PayPal account, you can be halfway sure that you will be able to withdraw the PayPal fund directly to your bank account. One thing before we continue, you need to have at least $2 or N1000 in your bank account.
To link a card to the South African PayPal, log in to the just created PayPal account go to the account profile, then from the drop-down menu choose Link a card. You would be asked to type in the card details, do that. After completing that step, click save and on the next page, you would be asked to enter an OTP Pin that was sent to your phone, after doing that, click save and you are done.
You remember when I asked you to have at least $2 or N1000 in your bank account right? This is because PayPal will collect N381.08 from the bank account of the linked card just to ensure that it’s yours. There’s nothing to worry about as the money would be fully refunded within 24 hours.
