Yes, You Can!
Using an Amex gift card on PayPal is possible and super easy!
Step 1: Register Your Card
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to register your Amex gift card online or by calling the number on the back. This is a simple process that usually involves providing your name, billing address, and the card information.
Step 2: Link Your Card to PayPal
Once your Amex gift card is registered, log in to your PayPal account and go to the Wallet section. From there, click on ‘Link a card or bank’ and follow the prompts to add your Amex gift card as a payment method. Make sure to enter the card details correctly to avoid any issues.
Step 3: Confirm Your Card
After you’ve linked your Amex gift card to PayPal, the next step is to confirm your card. PayPal will send a small amount (usually around $1.00) to your gift card to verify its validity. Check your card statement or online balance regularly to find the exact amount PayPal sent.
Step 4: Enter the Confirmation Code
Once you receive the confirmation code from PayPal, log in to your PayPal account and navigate to the Wallet section. Find your Amex gift card under ‘Payment methods’ and click ‘Confirm.’ Enter the code you received from PayPal to complete the confirmation process.
Step 5: Start Shopping!
Now that your Amex gift card is successfully linked and confirmed on PayPal, you can use it to make purchases on any website that accepts PayPal. Just select PayPal as your payment method at checkout and choose your Amex gift card as the funding source. It’s that simple!
However, it’s important to note that some online merchants may not accept PayPal payments made with Amex gift cards. While most places do, there may be a few exceptions. It’s always a good idea to check the merchant’s payment options or contact their customer service if you’re unsure.
So, go ahead and put that Amex gift card to good use with PayPal. Happy shopping!
