Add a Digital Mastercard into Paypal with NO FEES!

On most GPT/Survey websites, the cheapest option to get ‘cash’ is usually Digital Mastercard, which costs fewer points than Paypal – and as we all know, every penny counts!

So it makes sense to get a Mastercard, right? But what do do if you want to put the money in your Paypal account? Well thankfully, it’s easy 🙂

Here’s a step by step guide and a few tips at the end.

You will need

  1. Your Mastercard details (I am going to presume you already have your Mastercard in your Digital Wallet)
  2. Access to 2 separate Paypal accounts (yours and one other – maybe a partner / friends / relative for example)
  3. That’s it!

Adding your Mastercard to your Paypal account with no fees

Log in to the first Paypal account (the one that isn’t yours usually) and visit the ‘Money’ section:

Scroll down until you see the ‘Debit and credit cards’ option and click on ‘Add card’ – you will then see this:

From your Digital Wallet, find the Mastercard you want to use and the details of that card and fill in the form.

Click on ‘Add Card’.

You will see this screen:

Click on ‘Done’.

You will be taken back to the money screen where you should see that the card has been added:

2 things to note here:

  • You DO NOT need to confirm the card
  • You will not see the amount of this card in your balance – the balance is on the card

Now go to the top of the page again and click on ‘Send or request money’.

Add the email address of the second (yours usually) Paypal account and you will be taken to a screen to confirm the amount you wish to send – add that here and ensure that it says ‘Sending to a friend or family’.

Click on ‘Continue’.

You will now be asked how you want to pay:

Make sure you choose the card you have just added.

Follow the rest of the process to send the money.


Now go to the second Paypal account (usually yours) and log in.

You should see the money that was sent from the first account in your balance:

You can now use this as you would normally use your Paypal balance, send to someone else or transfer into your bank.

Things to remember

  • Always log out of the first account before logging into the second.
  • You DO NOT need to confirm the card
  • You will not see the amount of this card in your balance – the balance is on the card
  • Remember to send as Friends and Family or you will be charged fees.
  • You could do this slightly differently by adding the card to your Paypal account and sending the money to a friend, then asking them to return it to you, if you don’t have login access for both accounts
  • Don’t have access to 2 Paypal accounts? There’s another way to do it but you will incur fees.

Hopefully this step by step guide has helped you to make the most of your points by cashing out to Mastercard instead of the more expensive Paypal and turning that Mastercard into Paypal cash.
