    Today we shipped a change which allows you to connect a PayPal account without an instant backup funding source (like a card or certain bank accounts). This should allow you to use your PayPal balance when subscribing to Nitro.

    Yeah 2 days ago I asked if it was possible to use the balance and they said no but that we could give the idea, so upvote!

    I found out how to. Just buy it on your iPhone and it uses PayPal balance

    They should implement that for all devices, not only for iPhone. Many people don't have iPhones.

    Been wanting to buy a nitro gift for ages, sadly I have no credit or debit card. Would love to be able to pay using Paypal balance. The only real workaround is buying a prepaid visa giftcard.

    I asked the same thing, seems strange that it doesn't allow for that already. Since PayPal is primarily a Bank Account with a balance. I am totally up for that UPVOTE!

    so ive found out that if you have a card connected to your paypal account and select that as the payment method, it'll use your balance first. ive got 2 prepaid visa giftcards which ive added to my paypal and am able to pay with my balance 😁

    Can confirm, if you have a card in PayPal and chose it as payment method you first get billed from your PP balance if you have funds in it.

    Exactly, they should really add more payment methods. Like I mean money is money.

    I have payment methods on my account Thonolan, it still gives no option. For other services there'll be an option to pay out of your balance.

    I'm gifting my friends Discord Nitro for Christmas and their birthday, it's coming up and I've been doing art commissions and saving money for this. I'm disappointed to know that you can't get Nitro with your PayPal balance.... (´。_。`)

    Please allow us to pay with this! Upvote!

    Some explaination to stop this post being up.

    You can just select a paypal payment method, just go with credit card, if your paypal have sufficient balance, paypal will be automaticly use your balance instead of charge from your credit card, this is completely handled by paypal side, not discord side.

    Noah, I don't have a card so I can't put anything, not even an empty card because I don't have a card that is supported by PayPal.
