Paypal in the Philippines?

Recommended Posts

Lost

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.

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.

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.

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.
