Do you have a PayPal Business Debit MasterCard? Have you noticed the messages to update your new card’s expiration date and card security code whenever you login to your PayPal account or check your email? If you haven’t received your brand new card then you will need to wait until it arrives in the mail before you can activate it otherwise if you’ve recently received it please follow the instructions inside your account to activate it.
Once you login to your PayPal account you will need to have your new card handy so you can fill in a few details from your new card so it will be validated properly and activated for use. Your old card can then be discarded because it is not needed anymore. Another step in the process is because you’re receiving a brand new card you will need to create a new PIN number. Make sure you remember the PIN number for later use.
More people are using alternative payment methods like a PayPal debit card because they don’t like using their personal bank debit card for everyday use. With the uprise of identity theft and credit card breaches that have been reported in the news recently people are using their bank cards less and less while choosing to use an alternative card like PayPal. A PayPal card will protect you from fraud because the card doesn’t have to be connected to your bank account and you can use it like a regular prepaid card.
