PayPal is an e-wallet that lets you make payments, transfer money and create a business account. PayPal is used for completing online purchases, but one question that people may ask is this: does Walmart.com take PayPal? Like many retailers, Walmart.com accepts PayPal.
PayPal on Walmart.com Website
You can complete your transaction using different methods, which are credit, debit or gift cards, money orders, checks and PayPal, while shopping on Walmart’s online services. Here is how you can use PayPal on Walmart.com:
- Click the cart symbol, which is located in the top-right corner, for checkout.
- Access your Walmart account or register for an account and fill out the contact and shipping information.
- Upon seeing “Select Payment method,” click on PayPal and proceed to PayPal. You can then log in to PayPal.
- Choose your preferred payment method, which can be your bank account, a PayPal credit or debit card or your PayPal account.
- PayPal will redirect you to Walmart.com so that you can confirm your order.
Although you can freely create a PayPal account, you need an eligible account to receive a PayPal credit or debit card.
PayPal in a Physical Walmart
Walmart stores currently do not support any mobile wallets that you can link to your PayPal. However, Walmart has its own e-wallet, which is Walmart Pay. With this, a cashier scans your phone screen’s QR code so that you can complete your order. You may not connect your PayPal to Walmart Pay but rather your PayPal debit or credit card.
You need a PayPal credit or debit card to complete orders at Walmart. You can order a Walmart gift card through Walmart.com by using PayPal and use the card to complete transactions. If applicable, you can associate your Walmart MoneyCard with PayPal to complete transactions.
Here are the payment methods in detail:
PayPal Debit and Credit Cards
If you desire to use PayPal to complete physical transactions, then you can request a PayPal debit or a credit card. The debit card withdraws funds from your PayPal account, and the credit card accumulates charges that you must pay at the end of each billing period. PayPal will not charge you for applying for either of these cards.
You can complete a transaction by using either card at a Walmart register or by connecting them to Walmart Pay.
Walmart Gift Cards
With PayPal, you can order a gift card from Walmart.com. You can optionally use the card to order items on Walmart’s website or print an e-gift card so that you can use it at Walmart stores.
The Walmart MoneyCard
With a Walmart MoneyCard, you can transfer a portion of your PayPal balance to the card and complete transactions at Walmart, but you must link the Walmart MoneyCard, which serves as a financial bank account, to your current PayPal account because the MoneyCard is a debit card.
To link your Walmart MoneyCard to PayPal, you can find your account and routing numbers on Walmart’s MoneyCard website and follow the procedure for performing a bank transfer.
Wrap-up: Does Walmart.com Take Paypal?
Unlike Walmart stores, Walmart’s website can accept PayPal. Nevertheless, you can use your PayPal credit or debit card, gift cards or Walmart MoneyCard to use PayPal at Walmart stores.
