Does Walmart Take PayPal? (Online, In-store + More)

Walmart is one of the most convenient stores in the US, with a massive range of products available across its 4,756 locations.

Knowing how easy it is to find everything you need at Walmart, you probably want to know if it’s similarly easy to pay. So, does Walmart take PayPal? Here’s all the information I could find!

Does Walmart Take PayPal?

Walmart does accept payment via PayPal. Customers can pay for their Walmart shopping using a PayPal account either in-store, online at, or through the Walmart app. Additionally, it is also possible to manage your PayPal funds in Walmart stores. 

So how exactly can you use your PayPal account in Walmart stores and online? Read on to find out everything you need to know about using your PayPal account to pay at Walmart!

How Do I Pay With PayPal At Walmart?

Even though PayPal was originally an online-only payment platform, it has expanded into offering credit cards, debit cards, and prepaid cards since partnering with MasterCard in 2007. 

It is with these cards that customers can pay for their Walmart shopping in-store.

Using one of these cards, you can pay at the checkout as you would with any other credit card or debit card and the money will come directly out of your PayPal account. 

Can I Pay Contactless With PayPal At Walmart?

Unfortunately, you cannot pay contactless with PayPal at Walmart. This is because Walmart does not support near-field communication (NFC) technology, which is what contactless readers use.

So, even if you have a contactless PayPal card or the ability to pay contactless using the PayPal app on your Android or iOS smartphone, you will not be able to pay using these methods. 

For contactless payment in-store, Walmart instead has its own payment platform, Walmart Pay!

To use this service, you have to download the Walmart app, add a card, and pay at the checkout using a secure QR code generated by the app. 

Can I Pay With PayPal On Walmart’s Website?

Can I Pay With PayPal On Walmart’s Website

You can also pay with PayPal on Walmart’s online store! Simply add the items you want to buy to your cart, and when you’re ready to pay, click “Check Out.”

It doesn’t matter whether or not you have an account or want to complete your transaction as a guest. Either way, once you have input your details and selected your delivery method, you will be taken onto payment. 

When on the payment page, find the “More” option and then select PayPal. From here, you will be asked to log into your PayPal account and confirm the transaction, before being taken back to the Walmart site. You can do the same on the Walmart app. 

Can I Use Another Payment Method With PayPal on Walmart’s Website?

When paying with PayPal on or the Walmart app, you cannot use PayPal with another payment method.

For example, you will not be able to pay for a portion of your shopping cart using a gift card and then pay the rest with funds from your PayPal account. 

You have to pay for the entire purchase when using your PayPal account on the Walmart website and app. To use more than one payment method in the same transaction, you will need to use a different credit or debit card which supports this feature. 

Can I Deposit Money Into My PayPal Account At Walmart?

Since 2018, PayPal account holders have been able to manage their money in Walmart stores!

If you have a PayPal account, you can easily deposit money into it using the PayPal app on your smartphone or tablet in one of 4,700 Walmart stores. This will cost $3 every time you make a deposit. 

To make use of this feature, simply open your PayPal app and select “Add Cash,” then “Walmart,” and finally “Generate Barcode.” You will then need to show the barcode to a cashier, give them the cash, and just like that the money will be deposited into your account! 

Can I Withdraw Money From My PayPal Account At Walmart?

As well as depositing money, you can now also withdraw money from your PayPal account in 3,900 of Walmart’s stores.

Again, this will cost $3 for each withdrawal you make, and you can complete your withdrawal using either the PayPal app or a PayPal Cash Card. To withdraw money using your Cash Card, all you have to do is go to an ATM. 

When using the app, you will first have to select “Get Cash,” enter the amount you want to withdraw, and click “Generate Code.” Then, show this code to a cashier at one of the Walmart MoneyCenters or Service Desks in-store, and they will give you your cash. 

Can I Get A PayPal Card At Walmart?

No, you cannot apply for a PayPal card at Walmart. If you would like to request or apply for one of PayPal’s cards, including their Cash Card, PayPal Cashback Mastercard, and PayPal Business Debit Mastercard, you will have to do so through their website. 

What Walmart Products Can I Buy With PayPal?

Don’t worry, there’s no limit to which items you can purchase at Walmart using your PayPal account.

If Walmart stocks it, you can pay for it with PayPal! This includes their wide range of products such as furniture, books, and clothes, as well as gift cards and gas. 

How Do I Add Money To My PayPal Account?

If you want to add funds to your account to cover your shopping costs at Walmart, you will have to do so online, either on the PayPal website or through the app. It is free to do so. 

But, whichever way you choose to add money to your PayPal account, you will first need to link it to your bank account. 

You can, of course, also deposit money into your PayPal account in 4,700 of Walmart’s physical stores. You will still need to have the app in order to do so.

Do I Need A Bank Account For PayPal?

No, you do not need a bank account to set up or use PayPal. But if you want to transfer any funds you receive out of your PayPal account, you must add a bank account. 

While shopping in-store, you might also be curious to know whether or not Walmart accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay, AfterPay, Venmo, and American Express Gift Cards.


Walmart does accept payment from PayPal credit and debit cards both in-store and online. You can also manage the money in your PayPal account in Walmart’s stores, at a cost of $3 per withdrawal or deposit.

However, Walmart does not carry the NFC technology to support contactless transactions, and so you cannot pay for your shopping at Walmart using the PayPal app.
