The Guide to Linking Your Bankera Account with PayPal

In recent months, we received many inquiries regarding the possibility of linking Bankera IBAN with PayPal, a leading online payment provider worldwide. Having already confirmed that the option was possible a few weeks ago, today we present you with the full guide of linking your Bankera IBAN account and debit card to PayPal.

How to add my IBAN account to PayPal?

The possibility to link your IBAN account with PayPal is beneficial in a handful of ways. You will not only be able to top up your PayPal via Bankera but also move your funds the opposite way – to Bankera. 


If you receive personal or business payments through PayPal, the link with Bankera will also provide a convenient way to withdraw and spend these funds with the help of Bankera debit card.


To link your Bankera account with PayPal, follow these steps:


  1. Log in to your PayPal account and go to the ‘Wallet’ section.
  2. Press ‘Link a bank’. Then, enter the IBAN account number of your Bankera account and click ‘Agree and link’.
  3. In a few days, you will receive a couple of small transactions from PayPal to your Bankera account. The amounts of these transactions will be used for account confirmation.
  4. Open the PayPal ‘Wallet’ section again. Click the IBAN account number you want to confirm and enter the amounts of the PayPal transactions made to your Bankera account. For instance, if you received deposits of 0.03 EUR and 0.18 EUR, you should enter .03 and .18. Then, click ‘Confirm’.


That’s all! After confirming your IBAN, you will be able to move money between your PayPal account and Bankera.

How to link my debit card with PayPal?

IBAN account is not the only Bankera service that can be connected with PayPal. Additionally, it is also possible to add your debit card to the platform. Then, the card can be used to top up your PayPal account, as well as for online shopping.

  4. Check the charged card transaction. In its details, you will find a four-digit code. For example, if the code is 1111, the transaction will be titled ‘PayPal*1111 CODE’ or ‘PP*1111 CODE’.
  5. Open the PayPal ‘Wallet’ section again and click on the card you want to confirm. Enter the four-digit code from the previous step and submit.
