PayPal: Withdrawal instructions

To confirm if this payment method is available in your country, please log into your Stars Account and go to the Cashier.


The PayPal withdrawal option will only be available if you have made at least one previous PayPal deposit in the past 12 months.

Before you withdraw via PayPal, make sure that the bank account or card linked to that account is still valid and that your email address has been verified by PayPal.

Also, remember that per our Withdrawal Policy, withdrawals will be automatically credited back to any and all of the following methods that you may have used to make deposits, in the following order, before being credited back to your PayPal account:

  1. CFT eligible VISA
  2. NETELLER and Skrill

To request a withdrawal to your PayPal account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Cashier and select the Withdraw tab. 
  2. Enter your withdrawal amount and proceed to the next screen.
  3. In the next screen, you'll be notified if you have any pending automatic withdrawals and the payment methods available to withdraw any remaining amount.
  4. If you do not have any pending automatic withdrawals, simply select the PayPal option.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions and submit your request.

You can request up to 3 PayPal withdrawals in a 24 hour period. The 24 hours will start counting from the time your request was approved, not from the time it was submitted.

The funds will always be applied to the same purse that was used to deposit last and in the same currency.
