Why do i need to link my social media, Facebook or PayPal account?

At Zip we believe in keeping things fast, simple and digital - which means no paperwork and no waiting!

By connecting to a verified Facebook, PayPal or LinkedIn account, we are able to:

  • Improve your experience while using our products (Use your details for an easy login to your Zip account).
  • Confirm that the details you provided are correct
  • Verify that you're a real person.
  • Confirm that you are 18 years or older


This must be your real and verified Facebook, PayPal, or LinkedIn account and must be in your name.

As your security and privacy are important to us, your login credentials cannot be accessed by Zip, and we will never post on your Facebook or LinkedIn wall.

Please note your PayPal account cannot be used to pay back your Zip Pay account, you'll still need to add a card as your repayment method.

If you don't have one these accounts that you can link, you will need to apply for Zip Money, where you can skip this step.

Our Privacy Policy can be accessed here.
