I’m trying to figure out how to set the default or preferred payment method in my Paypal account. Because I’ve run into credit card fraud twice in the past couple months, I’m being very careful about where I enter my credit card details. In this case, I’m trying to get Spotify to use my Paypal account instead of my credit card directly.

Making changes in a PayPal account can be an interesting and time consuming experience. It seems that many times, it can be a little difficult to find any reliable information about how to make a desired change. One of these changes involves the primary or preferred payment method.
The default is set to use your PayPal balance as the first funding source for any payments you wish to make.
Despite a lot of information to the contrary, it is quite possible to make such a change on PayPal. You simply need to click on your profile, then on credit card under the financial information section. Now, you will edit this to chose the credit card you want and then click the box at the top that says to make it your primary payment method. Do not ofrget to add the 3 digit security code and save everything. This should solve the entire problem. Now, you will automatically be choosing to pay from the card first and the balance second.
