Can I transfer money from my PayPal account to my Alipay account?

Because PayPal and Alipay are two separate applications, you won’t be able to transfer money from one to the other. However, you can do it through Vpayfast by placing an order for Alipay recharging, paying with PayPal and the supported native currency. Then it will automatically recharge for you, which is really convenient.

How cab I add my bank account to Paypal?

There are a few things you should know before linking your bank account to PayPal.

If you are unable to link your accounts, consider the following:


  • You must first determine whether PayPal is available in your country.
  • You should also check to see if PayPal accepts your bank.
  • It’s possible that the bank is supported by PayPal services, but the sort of credit or debit card you’re using to link to your PayPal account isn’t.

Also, make sure your bank account isn’t linked to any other PayPal accounts.

Can I receive money on Paypal without a bank account?

You will be able to receive money, but it will be difficult to access. The monies will be held in a PayPal “account,” which you may use to pay for items and services that use PayPal as a payment method. Unless you connect your bank and move the funds out, you will not be able to acquire cash or access those funds in any other way.

What happens if your PayPal account goes into negative balance for any reason?

Several things could occur – what is the cause of the negative balance? A chargeback on a product you sold, a bank’s returned ACH, a discovering source, or something else?

I had a fraudulent transaction for $912 hit my PayPal debit card – the money were not there, and the transaction was completed using a draught from my linked bank account. I did a stop payment to return the transaction to PayPal when this happened (where I would receive provisional credit from the dispute process).


The transaction was reversed, resulting in a $912 negative balance on my PayPal account. It will not attempt to recoup funds from a bank account or locate a source of funds right away. My provisional credit took three days to post (returning me to $0), but everything worked out nicely. I had touch with PayPal throughout this transaction.


Another occasion, I sold an item and the buyer attempted to make a claim against it; as a result, my funds were instantly held for the amount of the transaction (approximately $40), but because I didn’t have $40 in my account, it deducted what funds were available and put me in the negative. Because the buyer didn’t have a legal claim, I left it alone once more. A short time later, the case was ended, the money were released, and life went back to normal.


PayPal will attempt to collect funds from linked accounts, but you will be offered the chance to correct the problem first.

How much does it cost to open a PayPal account?

Signing up for a Pay Pal account is free. Anyone can use it for free. (in the nations they serve) They do, however, require a checking account to be verified, which is done by Paypal taking small amounts of money out of the account and having YOU check your account and inform them how much they took out. To establish that the account is legitimate and that you are the one who owns it.

A credit/debit card is also required as a backup money source. I have a separate Pay Pal account with my bank where I may add and withdraw funds as needed, as well as a Walmart debit card as a backup. (I refuse to send them a debit from my main banking account because I’ve read about their dubious business tactics.)


In truth, Pay Pal’s policy is quite lax when it comes to getting signed up…they only start digging deep when you want to sell. They may then request Social Security numbers, copies of driver’s licences, answers to questions that are too old to recall, and so on…
