Log into your PayPal account, go to ‘Money’, and click ‘add a card’.

Pack in your name, your Wirex card information, and your address. Once done, click ‘Add card’ to proceed to the next step.
PayPal will ask you to confirm the fresh card. Click ‘Confirm my card’ and PayPal will begin a series of transactions to verify your card. You need a minimum balance of $Trio in your Wirex card for this activity. It will then ask you to come in a PayPal Code.
Now go to your Wirex account. Under ‘card transactions’, you will see a 4-digit code from PayPal. Take note of the code.
Go back to your PayPal account and insert the 4-digit code. Congrats! Your Wirex card is now linked to your PayPal account.
Step Two: Withdraw funds from PayPal to your Wirex card

Next, select ‘Withdraw funds to your card’.

Now that you have withdrawn funds from your PayPal account onto your Wirex card, you can buy bitcoin! Once the funds have cleared, log into your Wirex account and select ‘Exchange Currencies’.
