Paypal in the Philippines?

Recommended Posts

goggleye

I sent Neng some money on Paypal to make some hotel deposits.  Normally paypal works without a hitch but she says she can't access her account from there in the Phils-it says access denied. A couple of others told her there they had a problem too.  Anyone else having a problem?

I just logged into ours, no problem. Paypal has been working flawlessly for us here for about 7 years now.

for the last 2 years paypal has not worked for me. I think they are hacked. I have reported them more than 20 times for phishing scams.No matter what I have entered, they will not accept it, so i no longer use any store that insist that they be used.

In part.

 

Actually it was because it wanted to send a pin code to my US sim card which meant I had to switch sim cards. Which then timed out the internet session.. which then wouldn't let me re-access paypal.

Well I can't pay for anything online using Paypal if I have a ship to address in phils.  Different sort of problem I suppose, a Paypal policy problem.

Because you hadn't used it in two years or so? We use our account regularly, I'm sure that will make a difference. Also, I assume your PP account may be US based, and you were trying to log in from the Philippines? Under those circumstances, I would hope they would try to verify the account.

 

I am just the opposite of Rogerdat, if a site doesn't accept Paypal or direct bank deposit, I don't buy there.

Just checked and mine works. PayPal does block login attempts from suspicious locations or IP addresses. If you are using a VPN or a public wifi connection -- or really any dynamic IP address in this country -- you have a chance of being blocked. Is this the same PayPal account being accessed from both your country an the Philippines? Try to download the PayPal app on a smart phone and match it to your account.

Here is what I get from time to time. Just now in fact. All I have to do is restart my Smartbro and I can usually get through. It's just an IP issue and not a problem with the account its self.

Huh, not really surprising I suppose but I just had Paypal say no to a couple of different purchases on Lazada in the last couple of weeks.  They specifically said it was because the ship to was in phils.  Oh well, maybe I'll have better luck next time.

I've had more failures than successes but I keep trying.

Have her try from a different computer.

If she has a Philippines account make sure she is accessing the Philippines site: https://www.paypal.com/signin?country.x=PH&locale.x=en_PH

If she has a US account make sure she is accessing the US site: https://www.paypal.com/signin?country.x=US&locale.x=en_US

 

If I try to access my US account from the Philippines it will get blocked and vise versa.

 

Edit: just saw the access denied part... if she's getting an "access denied" message for the entire site it's probably a blocked IP address or computer/browser issue. Like I said before, the phone app will probably work.

Is yours a Philippine PayPal account?

 

No, last time I used PayPal was to pay rent in the Philippines. I had to do the same pin text to my phone then do a second verification after that. It was a horrible hassle.after that I just started taking cash out at he bank and paying cash for my rent.

My Canadian paypal acount is blocked since I tried to access it from Canada. Same happened to my Ph paypal account when I tried to access it from Germany. Paypal says they can't do anything about it, WTF?

 

Now I can't use neither of th ebank accounts nor CC I used in those accounts.

 

Funny thing is, the Ph still works when I purchase on ebay but not for other payments or withdrawals.

Is it even blocking the access if you having a usd-pp-account, but using a vpn within the phils?

 

Problem with having a philipino pp-account might be that if you load it up with a usd-bank/creditcard, you might get raped with currecny-exchange-fees?

A few weeks ago I used my US paypal and bought some things from stores in the States. The items were delivered to my brother in New Jersey. I placed the orders from the Philippines and everything went fine, without a hitch.

I have my old german paypal account and wasn't able (allowed) to add my philippine metrobank account to it (paypal only allows european banks added).
So I just created a 2nd paypal account with my current location and now have my metrobank account added to it. 
Paypal works fine here for me.

Make sure you don't try to access your account from another country, like on a stopover somewhere. That culd raise a flag and freeze your account. Just saying.

 

As I mentioned, my account still works when I buy stuff on ebay.
