How to Transfer Money from Netspend to Paypal


When it comes to online payments, there are a few different options to choose from. Two of the most popular choices are Netspend and PayPal. Both of these services have their benefits and drawbacks, so it can be tough to decide which one is right for you. Netspend is a service that allows you to load money onto a prepaid debit card, which can then be used to make online and in-person payments. PayPal is a service that allows you to send and receive money online, as well as make in-store payments with a special PayPal card. But what happen when you want to transfer money from Netspend to PayPal? The following are 10 steps to guide you on transferring money from Netspend to PayPal.

1. Login to Your Netspend Account

You need to login to your Netspend account to transfer money. This can be done either on the Netspend website or the mobile app. You need to enter you credentials (username and password) and click login. If you don't have a Netspend account, you can create one from the official website.

2. Navigate to the “Transfers” Section

Once you have logged in, navigate to the "Transfers" section. This can be found in the top menu bar on the website or in the "More" tab on the mobile app. This is where you will see a list of all your current transfers, as well as the ability to create new transfers. If you have previously transferred money from Netspend to PayPal, this section will show you the details of those transfers. You can also cancel or update any existing transfers from here.

3. Select the “To” Option

In the "Transfers" section, you will see a list of all your current transfers. To the right of each transfer, you will see a few different options. One of these is called "To." This is where you will select PayPal as the recipient of your funds. Once you have selected PayPal, a new screen will appear with all of the details of your transfer. This will include the amount of money being transferred, the currency, and the fee for the transfer.

4. Enter the Amount You Want to Transfer

Next, you need to enter the amount of money that you want to transfer from Netspend to PayPal. This can be done in either US dollars or your local currency. Keep in mind that there may be a fee associated with this transfer, which will be shown before you finalize the transaction. If you make a mistake while entering the amount, you can use the arrow keys to adjust the number. You can also use the "Currency Converter" to see how much your transfer will be in your local currency.

5. Select the “Date” for the Transfer

After you have entered the amount of money that you want to transfer, you need to select the date for the transfer. This can be done by clicking on the calendar icon to the right of the "Date" field. You can then select the date that you want the transfer to take place. If you need to delay the transfer for some reason, you can select the "Later" option. This will postpone the transfer until a later date that you choose. Keep in mind that there may be a delay between the time you request the transfer and the time it takes place.

6. Select Your PayPal Funding Source

The next step is to select your PayPal funding source. This is where you will choose the bank account or card that you want to use to fund the transfer. You can also select "Add a New Card" if you don't have one already saved in your PayPal account. If you are transferring money from a Netspend card, you will need to select the "From Card" option. This is where you will enter the card number and expiration date of the card you are transferring from. You will also need to enter the security code, which is a 3-digit number located on the back of the card.

7. Review and Confirm Your Transfer Details

Once you have entered all the required information, it's time to review and confirm your transfer details. This includes the amount of money being transferred, the date, and your PayPal funding source. If everything looks correct, click "Confirm."

8. Enter Your Netspend Password

Next, you will need to enter your Netspend password. This is required to authorize the transfer of funds. This is to confirm that you are the account holder and are authorized to make this transfer. Once you have entered your password, click "Submit." Your payment will now be processed and the money should arrive in your PayPal account within a few business days.

9. Wait for Your Transfer to be Completed

Once you have confirmed the transfer, it will take a few business days for the funds to be transferred from Netspend to PayPal. You can check the status of your transfer by navigating back to the "Transfers" section on the Netspend website or app. You can check the "Status" column to see if the transfer is completed. If there are any problems with the transfer, you can click on "Details" to find out more information. If you need to cancel the transfer for some reason, you can do so by navigating back to the "Transfers" section on the Netspend website or app. Click on the "Cancel" button next to the transfer that you want to cancel. This will stop the transfer from being completed. Keep in mind that you may be charged a fee for cancelling the transfer.

10. Enjoy Your Funds in Your PayPal Account

Once the transfer is complete, the funds will be available in your PayPal account. From there, you can use them to pay for online purchases or withdraw them into your bank account.


The process of transferring money from Netspend to Paypal is relatively easy, but there are a few things you need to do to make the transfer. You don't have to go through a lot of trouble to move your money around, and by following these simple steps, you can be sure that the process will go smoothly. If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact PayPal customer service for assistance.
