November 25, 2019 | SINGAPORE | By Barkha Patel
  • Through its long-standing partnership with Mastercard, PayPal is extending its Instant Transfer solution to Singapore and multiple European markets
  • Through Mastercard Send™, PayPal customers can transfer funds from their PayPal wallets to their Mastercard cards in real-time*

Following the success of its Instant Transfer feature in the U.S., PayPal and Mastercard recently extended the service to Mastercard cardholders in Singapore and a number of European countries.

Mastercard Send™ is an application that leverages the card network infrastructure to facilitate the secure availability of funds in real-time*. With Mastercard Send™, PayPal users can transfer their account balances to eligible Mastercard cards seamlessly and conveniently, typically within seconds*.

Since 2017, this service has allowed millions of Mastercard cardholders to transfer their PayPal balances to an eligible Mastercard card.

Since sales proceeds are available immediately*, Instant Transfer allows PayPal’s business users to optimize cash flow and improve liquidity. Mastercard issuers could see increased consumer engagement as a result of the Instant Transfer feature in the PayPal wallet.[i]

Deborah Heng, Country Manager, Singapore, Mastercard, said, “The continuous partnership with PayPal and the wider roll-out of Mastercard Send™ in Singapore brings greater convenience and options to Mastercard cardholders here, while offering operational efficiencies for businesses. With a simple set-up and click of a button, consumers and businesses in Singapore can instantly transfer funds across multiple markets from their PayPal wallets to their Mastercard cards, facilitating the flow of cash securely in real time, wherever and whenever.”

Jennifer Marriner, Vice President, Global Markets and Partnerships at PayPal comments:

“Providing instant access to funds requires innovation and partnership within the financial industry in order to deliver an ideal customer experience. At PayPal, we are constantly innovating and working with important partners like Mastercard to deliver on these innovations. By expanding Mastercard Send into new countries it adds another choice for our customers to access their money even faster.”

PayPal will launch its Instant Transfer with Mastercard Send™ in Singapore followed by multiple European markets.

* Actual posting times for approved transactions will depend on the receiving financial institution.
