How can I pay with Paypal?

A verified PayPal account is a prerequisite to pay through PayPal on Drivy.

What is PayPal?

First of all: using PayPal is free of charge for private users. PayPal allows you to access an already existing bank account registered under your name through a virtual one. It’s easy to handle and has a high level security.

Signing Up

You only need to register as private on their website and enter all necessary data. This includes the bank details of the account that you want to link to PayPal.

Verification Process

Once you have set up your account, a two-step verification process begins:

  • In Germany

1) Test transfer

Paypal asks you to confirm your bank account to verify you're the owner. PayPal transfers one cent to the bank account you provided to make sure you have entered the correct details. Since this is a standard bank transfer, it may take up to one or two working days until you have received the money.

2) Verification of your account

The charge appears on your card statement with a 4-digit code and the word PAYPAL. After log in on your Paypal account, go to your wallet, click on the card or account you need to confirm, enter the 4 digit-code and click on “Confirm”.

  • In Austria:

1) Test transfer

Paypal asks you to confirm your bank account to verify you're the owner. PayPal sends two transfers of small amounts (<1€) to the bank account you provided to make sure you have entered the correct details. Since this is a standard bank transfer, it may take up to one or two working days until you have received the money.

2) Verification of your account

The charges appear on your card statement. Note the amounts of the two transfers sent by Paypal on your account, then log in on your Paypal account, go to your wallet, click on the card or account you need to confirm, enter the two amounts you received and click on “Confirm”.

Using PayPal

Done! Your account is now verified and you can rent your car on Drivy using PayPal!
