How to link a prepaid card to Paypal Cameroon account

How to verify your Paypal Cameroon account (link a card to your Paypal Cameroon account)

After you have successfully created your Paypal Cameroon account on the paypal Cameroon official website (, you will need to link an active debit card or a prepaid card to your Paypal Cameroon account before you can start shopping online or withdraw money from your Paypal Cameroon account.

To link your prepaid or debit card to your Paypal Cameroon account. This is what you need to do.

Login to the Paypal Cameroon website using your Paypal Email and password.

On your Paypal Cameroon account dashboard, click the “Link a Card” button.

On the page that follows, carefully enter your card information:

**Card number
**Expiration date
**Security code
**Card type and
**Billing address.

Note that an expired card will not be allowed.

After you’ve entered the above information, Paypal will then attempt connecting and charging your card with a small amount, usually under 1000FCFA. This means you will need to have some money in your prepaid card before successfully attaching it.

If there are no funds in your card or some entered data is incorrect, you will have an error message.

NB: You will need to have access to your card’s transaction history to complete the process. Attaching the card is one thing. Activating it is yet another.

Paypal normally creates an entry on your card’s transaction history table with a unique code. That code will be required to finally activate the card.

If you do not have access to your card’s transaction history table, please contact your card issuer.

You can also contact me if you are facing difficulties and i will guide you (if you are using the UBA Africard).

To obtain a prepaid card from the Paypal banks in Cameroon, all you need is…
