Does NetSpend Work with PayPal?

A:

Prepaid NetSpend accounts do work with PayPal. A PayPal account can be linked to a NetSpend account, and vice versa. PayPal allows its customers to add money to their PayPal prepaid cards at NetSpend Reload Network locations nationwide.

NetSpend

NetSpend is a U.S. corporation that offers processing and marketing products for MasterCard and Visa prepaid debit cards. NetSpend debit cards can be reloaded with funds from bank accounts and other financial service providers, such as PayPal. NetSpend prepaid cardholders can also make direct deposits to their account. NetSpend offers gift cards that cannot be replenished and travel cards that can be reloaded for a certain number of times. NetSpend also offers savings accounts in conjunction with its prepaid debit cards. NetSpend has a program that provides rewards for referrals.

NetSpend and Paypal

While PayPal also offers its own line of MasterCard prepaid cards, it cooperates closely with NetSpend. PayPal allows its customers to replenish their prepaid card balances at more than 100,000 NetSpend Reload Network locations nationwide. NetSpend Reload locations are typically available at participating grocery stores, gas stations, check-cashing stores, and MoneyGram and Western Union locations.

PayPal also has special offers and cash back rewards on its prepaid MasterCard cards that are sponsored by NetSpend. PayPal sends reward offers based on their prepaid cardholders' shopping habits.

Likewise, NetSpend cardholders can use PayPal to replenish their cards. In this case, PayPal does not charge NetSpend customers fees, and funds added to NetSpend accounts are typically available within two to three business days.
