How to use the Oculus Store without a credit card

If you don't have a credit card or don't want to give up your credit card information to Oculus Rift, you can sync an active PayPal account and use it to buy Rift games from the Oculus Store.

Syncing a PayPal account must be done through the desktop Oculus app — you cannot sync a PayPal account from within the Rift. Here's how to do it!

How to sync a PayPal account with the Oculus Store

  1. Launch the Oculus app from your Start menu, desktop, or taskbar.
  2. Click the gear button in the top right corner of the window.
  3. Click Settings.

  1. Click Payment.
  2. Click Add your Paypal account. A web browser will open.

  1. Type your email address and password associated with your Oculus account.
  2. Click Sign In. You will be redirected to the PayPal website.

  1. Type your email address and password associated with your PayPal account.
  2. Click Log In.

That's it! Your PayPal account will be saved in the Oculus app to ensure you check out easily next time you buy a game.
