I am wondering if and how you can withdraw the money. Do they transfer from paypal accounts to RP banks as in Canada and the US?

Congrats Angie,

 

When I first started writing for a living, there was no PayPal here (only 2 years ago it was introduced just before Christmas). My money was limited to the people that I could find that were willing to pay me through Xoom or Western Union. After finally getting a PayPal account, I watched my monthly income go from around P10,000/mo to P40,000/mo in less then 2 months time. It makes a big difference.

 

With PayPal Philippines, you can withdraw to the card or a bank account via the Philippine Clearance House. I would not suggest withdrawing to the card though. I personally as well as many other people here have had issues with it time and time again. However when withdrawing to a bank account, if you do the withdraw by Thursday, it will be in your account by Tuesday. However, if you have a PayPal Philippines account, you can only withdraw to a Philippine based bank account and not an international one. Likewise you can not withdraw to a Philippine bank account if your PayPal account is based out of any other country.

 

Minimum withdraw is $5 and anything under P7,000 costs P50 for the withdraw if done to a bank account rather then the card. Anything over P7,000 is free to withdraw.

Thanks, Nick.

 

To answer Scianna's question, once you've created a PayPal account, you can then withdraw but prior to that, you will be asked to add a Philippine bank account and that's where you can withdraw money from.

 

What I have is PayPal Philippines. And yes, Nick is right. You have to wait for 2-4 days if you're withdrawing from a Philippine bank.

Is this true? Paypal allows Philippines bank accounts now?

Most certainly, when my Paypal balance gets high and the exchange rate is good, I transfer amounts to my BPI acc. it takes about 4 or 5 days.I been doing this for nearly 2 years.

It might be a good alternative to Paypal. Have you had experience with Moneybookers?

In terms or receiving money no I have not had the experience yet, I did signup with them and it was very simply. My friend in the UK has used then for a couple of months and highly recommends them, I am adding there gateway to all my websites as we speak. I think with paypal you can loose sales as not everyone likes it or indeed understands it so I intend on having both options.

Unless I'm reading their website info wrong, it appears that you could not use Moneybookers in RP. only their 30 listed countries.

I apolagise, I was not thinking of the RP just in terms of the using paypal..BUT there's always one I also notice that russia is not on the countries list but I have an email from moneybookers saying I can accept payments from Russia and the site has a russian section. So it may be you can receive money from RP customers but have to drawdown on an UK or US type bank account. Sorry I probably took this off topic without thinking.
