A PayPal Cash Card is a great way to make the most of your PayPal account. In fact, with recent changes, you’ll need one for some of the most basic uses of PayPal, including transferring money into your PayPal account.
Setting up a PayPal Cash Mastercard and PayPal Cash Plus account is easy, and can be done in just a few steps beyond creating a basic PayPal account.
