If you haven't received your new card yet, please save this email and click the button when you have the new card. If you've already updated your PayPal account with your new card information, please disregard this email.
You can always log in directly to PayPal to update your debit or credit card information in the Profile or Settings areas.
This why PayPal users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign-in from there instead. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of important changes or updates.
