If you have a PayPal Cash Balance, or a bank account linked to your PayPal Account, Express Checkout is simple and fast!
PayPal policy requires you to have a PayPal balance or a bank account linked to order a Lottery ticket (not just a debit or credit card linked to your bank). If your bank account is not already linked, you will need to use your banking credentials in PayPal to directly link your bank account (ACH) using Plaid - their bank account integration. Additionally, you must be using a Personal PayPal account - PayPal business accounts are not accepted.
If you receive an error message “Sorry something went wrong” it means you don’t have a bank account linked to your PayPal. Open PayPal Settings (in the PayPal app or from a browser), then go to Banks and Cards to confirm you have a bank account linked.
