Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That is really two tasks: 1. to register (or to 'link', in PayPal phraseology) a new credit card to the account, and

2. to change your registered phone # in the account.

This procedure may differ from a Personal account to a Business account, but I will instruct you in both (for the Personal account procedure, at least.) If you have a Business account or otherwise these instructions don't work, stop short, let me know what and where the problem is, and I will help you further.


1: to link a new credit card to your PayPal account:

- log in to your PayPal account

- then click on WALLET at the top

- then click on + link a card or bank

- then click on Link a credit or debit card

- then fill in the details (exactly and precisely) of your card, and click on Link Card.


2: to update your phone # for your account:

- be logged in to your PayPal account, first, then

- click on Profile

- click on My Personal Info

- click on Update next to 'PHONE'

- click on Edit, or on Add, or on Make Primary ... and one way or another, with those functions, remove any invalid number, or change it to be your current and valid number.
