In this article, I will share a step by step guide which will help you redeem and transfer cashback vouchers from your PayPal account to your bank account, easily!
What Are PayPal Cashbacks?
As you must know, PayPal often gives cashback vouchers generously when you make some purchase and make the payment through PayPal. At the time of writing this article, PayPal is giving 100% cashback voucher up to Rs 500 on the first-ever purchase of a new user.
What’s The Catch Behind The Cashbacks?
But the tricky part is that PayPal does not allow the user to redeem the cashback directly into her/his bank account with one click. Instead, what PayPal does is, it gives the user an option to redeem the total cashback in the next purchase that she/he makes, thus having to pay less.
Here you can see how PayPal describes the process:
Although this might not seem bad either, here’s the catch- the validity of the vouchers are limited! And if you forget to redeem it before it expires, then it will be gone forever.
How To Transfer The Cashback To Bank Account? (SOLUTION)
So, what’s the solution to this?
Well, I’ve come across a fairly simple solution which allows you to transfer the PayPal cashback to your PayTM wallet and from there, you can easily transfer the money directly to your bank account.
The basic idea is to purchase a PayTM gift card of the exact same amount as the PayPal cashback voucher, and while making the purchase of the gift card, we can use the cashback voucher to pay. And then, the gift card can be used to add money to our PayTM wallet, which we can directly transfer to any bank account we want.
Below is a step by step guide to do the same.
Step By Step Process To Transfer PayPal Cashback To Bank Account
Check Whether The Cashback Is Present In Your Account Or Not
Log in to your PayPal account and go to Payment Methods. You will be able to find your voucher under Saved Offers.
If you do not see your cashback voucher here, please contact the PayPal customer care so that they can resolve the issue.
Buy PayTM Gift Card Using The PayPal Voucher
You can buy the PayTM gift card from Zingoy as they offer the option to pay through PayPal.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED ARTICLE. I HAVE PERSONALLY USED ZINGOY’S SERVICE AND SO I AM SUGGESTING THEM. YOU CAN USE ANY OTHER SERVICE THAT YOU LIKE.
Follow These Steps:
Buy The Gift Card
Scroll down a little and you will find the PayTM gift cards option.
Now you will see that the gift cards are available in the following denominations: Rs 1000, Rs 200, Rs 500, Rs 100 and Rs 50.
Add the gift cards to your cart to match your PayPal cashback amount. For e.g., if your cashback amount is Rs 500, buy 1 gift card worth Rs 500.
After adding the required gift cards to your cart, you need to checkout to continue the payment. (which will be done through your PayPal gift card).
Here as you can see, Zingoy will add a processing fee to your total amount. You will have to pay the extra fee (Rs 25 in this case) from your own debit card. The processing fee is a fixed price and shall be the same irrespective of the site you shop from.
Click on REVIEW & CHECKOUT.
And that click on Proceed To Pay. After that, you will be asked to sign up. You can also use your Facebook or Google account to sign in quickly. Then click on Proceed To Pay Again.
Select Pay Using PayPal and continue to pay.
Now you will see that your PayPal cashback has been applied to your bill amount and you will only need to pay the processing fee. That is if your bill was Rs 525, and you had a Rs 500 PayPal voucher, you will only have to pay Rs 25 from your debit card.
IMPORTANT NOTICE! SOMETIMES PayPal gets stuck on the “Processing Your Payment” step. It has happened to me many times. If that happens, there’s nothing to worry. Just use a different browser (switch to phone’s browser or switch between Chrome and Firefox) or try after an hour or two. It will work.
After the payment is completed successfully, you will receive you PayTM gift card voucher code on your e-mail id and phone number which you registered on Zingoy. You will receive a confirmation message like this:
Redeem The PayTM Gift Card To Your Wallet
Add Money To Wallet Using Giftcard
Open the PayTM app on your phone and click on the add money option.
Now type the cashback amount and click on the “Have a Promocode?” option. Enter your voucher code from Zingoy’s e-mail, and you shall see the code being successfully applied.
Then click on Add Money.
It will take 5 to 10 mins for the cashback to redeem. After that, you can check your PayTM wallet passbook and you will see that you have received the cashback.
Transfer The Cashback To Bank Account
After having the money received in your PayTM wallet, you can easily transfer it to your UPI connected bank account at 0 extra charges or to any other bank account you wish.
