But you will need to provide a payment method (such as a bank account or debit or credit card) if you want to send money or if you want to make a payment and you don’t have sufficient funds in your PayPal balance.
Additionally, you will need to provide your bank account if you want to withdraw money from your PayPal account to your bank account.
