Reimburse Reports with PayPal

Important Notes

  • Paypal will not share your bank information, card information, or password with Expensify. It is only used to link your account to receive reimbursements.
  • It may take between 3-5 business days for the funds to clear Paypal’s hold time and be deposited in the receiver’s account. You can speed this up dramatically by using the Paypal Balance Manager to make sure you have enough funds to cover any pending reimbursements.

Connecting a PayPal Account to Receive Reimbursement

  1. Go to Settings  > Reimbursement and click the “link” button next to the Deposit account box. This will take you to an intermediate page letting you know Paypal will be used to link your account.

You can now receive reimbursements directly to your Paypal account. When your report is approved and paid, money will be automatically deposited into the linked Paypal account.


Connecting a Company PayPal Account to Reimburse Employees

Please note that withdraw accounts must be verified PayPal accounts, in that they must have a bank account attached to them. There is usually a $0.50 fee charged by Paypal for reimbursing reports, but this has been waived as part of our special promotion.

  1. Go to Settings  > Reimbursement and click the “link” button next to the Withdraw account box. This will take you to an intermediate page letting you know Paypal will be used to link your account.
