Linking a credit/debit card to your PayPal account

PayPal card linking linked link credit debit

Following the changes in our subscription process on the 1st February, we now ask that players have a credit or debit card linked to their PayPal account.

This stems from a request from PayPal, that an alternative fund source is required when dealing with a recurring payment. This means that even though you may have funds in your account, you still need to link a card to it.

Don’t forget that we offer a mind boggling variety of alternative payment options that can provide an ideal method of how you want to pay for your RuneScape membership. Make sure you head on over to the subscription page to check out the various other payment methods we can offer you if you’re unable to link a card to your PayPal account.

We’re awesome like that.

For reference, if you attempt to make a payment without a card linked to your account, you’ll find yourself at this screen:

To add a card to your account:

  • Log into the PayPal website PayPal.com
  • Go to My Account > My Money
  • Hit Add Card
  • Enter your card info and click Add Card

Now you can go ahead and grab your goodies using PayPal!
