Default How Much Does Paypal PreAuthorize?

When adding a debit card to Paypal, what's the minimum amount that has to be on the card? I'm sure Paypal pre-authorizes a small amount.

Default Re: How Much Does Paypal PreAuthorize?

In the US, it is $1.95. Once you confirm the code, the amount will go to your pp account.

No, this is the amount it cost to VERIFY your card (if you choose to), not to add it to your PayPal account.

$1.00 is how much they pre-authorize when just adding a card. To verify they actually charge you the $1.95.

I'm asking because someone recently told me a card must have at least $20 on it or Paypal will reject it.

think about your statement.

How could paypal know the balance if it never looks for an amount of $20?

Be careful of the company you keep if you are being feed rubbish like this.

Ive been experiencing lately that Paypal has not been charging my Vanilla Visas but still verifying the CC portion on the Paypal Account.

Standard rule of PREAUTHORIZATION is $1.00 as per industry guidelines. I have seen a few companies charge 1 cent...quite laughable.
