Monese with the power of PayPal

We’re really excited to launch our new collaboration with PayPal. Our customers travel the world for study, work, family, or retirement, and we know they’re avid PayPal users. So now you can get all the freedom of Monese, with the added scale, speed and security of PayPal.

If you’re one of our customers in the UK, you will be able to:

  • Link your Monese and PayPal accounts, to manage your PayPal balance and transactions in the Monese app
  • Seamlessly add your Monese card to your PayPal digital wallet to buy from, and send money to, PayPal’s 277 million consumers and merchants around the world
  • Easily select Monese as your preferred way to pay within your PayPal wallet

These features are now available to Monese personal account customers in the UK, and will be coming to the rest of Europe in the coming months.

Linking your account

Now, you’ll be able to check your PayPal balance or review recent transactions just by opening the Monese app. It has never been easier to manage your PayPal account, alongside your other finances and payments, from within the Monese app.

You can link your PayPal account by tapping the ‘Account’ button on the top left-hand side of the home screen, and then ‘Add account’. From there, select ‘PayPal’ and then ‘Link PayPal’. Select the Monese card (or cards) you’d like to link, and you’ll be prompted to enter your PayPal login credentials.

Adding your Monese card to your PayPal wallet

Next, add your Monese card to your PayPal wallet, for easier, faster payments at PayPal’s millions of businesses around the world, as well as for a host of other great features. This includes One Touch™, PayPal’s solution for checking out online in seconds, all without having to enter your card or password details.

Your primary card

Finally, choose your ‘preferred way to pay online’ within PayPal. This essentially means selecting the card you’d like to make primary to your PayPal account.

By adding your Monese card in this way, you’ll be able to check out online in just a few steps and send money transfers just as quickly.

Financial freedom

Make purchases, transfer money and send money to friends in seconds, wherever they may be in the world—without typing in your details every single time. So you can put down your device and get back to doing the things you love.

PayPal also lets you pay for your favourite things at millions of stores across the world, from big name merchants to small, unique stores.

Added security

Send and receive money with the peace of mind afforded by PayPal’s data encryption and fraud protection. It’s always good to know that PayPal protects you, your money and your purchases even after check-out.

Coming soon...

All these features are available to Monese personal account customers in the UK, and will be coming to the rest of Europe in the coming months. We’re really excited about this partnership and we would love to hear your thoughts – let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
