Your PayPal balance refills automatically

When your PayPal balance runs out, it refills with money from a debit card or bank account that’s linked to your PayPal account. The default is to add money in increments of $10.00 USD.

To cover the total cost of your purchase, if it’s more than your available balance, your PayPal balance is refilled as necessary.

Tip: If you turn off automatic top-up, future Google Pay transactions that don’t have enough PayPal Cash or PayPal Cash Plus balance for the purchase will be declined. For more info, go to the PayPal website.
