Only you can initiate transactions using your bank account, PayPal will remind you via email whenever there is a fund transfer from your account.

How To Confirm Your Credit or Debit Card

Log in to your PayPal account and enter the exact financial information required.

Why Confirm Your Credit or Debit Card?
