To use PayPal on Coinbase, the users will have to select PayPal as a payment method when buying cryptocurrencies. They will later be taken to a PayPal login screen and then users can make purchases of up to $25,000 in one day with the PayPal account. Besides allowing PayPal as a funding source, all customers in the US can purchase crypto with a connected bank account or ACH or wire transfer, as well as debit cards. Coinbase added:

“In the coming months, we’ll expand the ability to purchase crypto using funds from Paypal to more countries. Cash withdrawals to Paypal are already available in the US, Canada, EU, and UK.”

To use the new option, Coinbase explained that you can add your PayPal account via the add a payment method option which will link you to a new screen. All purchases made via PayPal are capped at $25,000 per day and the debit cards and bank accounts linked to a PayPal account can be used to buy crypto. The Coinbase FAQ noted that this feature, however, doesn’t support payment methods like prepaid cards or credit cards. The crypto exchange also provided US customers with PayPal sell functions since 2016 and withdrawal capabilities since 2018. It further expanded the options by adding cash withdrawals in UK, US, Canada, and EU.
