After you sign up for an account, you can start receiving money right away. To use the funds in your account, you can transfer them to your bank account (you will need to add one first). A bank transfer usually takes about 1 to 5 business days. Or, you can request a PayPal Debit Card and have your funds available to use right away. PayPal Debit Cards can be used almost anywhere just like a normal debit card from your bank.
Because PayPal offers a debit card to customers, many work-at-home agents prefer this payment method as they can receive payment from an employer and immediately use those funds to pay their bills online or head out to do their grocery shopping. They don’t have to wait for funds to clear before they can be used as can occasionally happen when depositing a check.
