A lot of people don’t know that Paypal has an autosweep function. Auto Sweep is when Paypal automatically transfers the money from your Paypal account to your bank on a daily basis (actually it’s at night, not during the day). It’s easy to set up, but hard to find.

And then either call Paypal or write to them:
They will turn it on for you, and you’ll be ready to go!
