Many people in Pakistan Bangladesh and other countries where Paypal does not operates, have Paypal accounts that are registered from other countries while they visit those countries but they can not withdraw funds from Paypal to their bank accounts and they are hesitant in telling that they have signed up for Paypal from another country so after reading NO in your post they just move on to another website without answering your questions.
I hope that your confusion is resolved. Thanks for your comment, Amber! It indeed sheds some light how one can be registered in PayPal but then — cannot withdraw money in their local bank.
But then again, why not keep open that other bank account in that other country? If we take the case you described — you registered with PayPal while in Australia, and you verified your Australian bank account.
Instant Money transfer to your Skrill or Moneybookers account within next 10 minutes after we receive your Payment.
Thanks for your comment, W. But please, readers, make sure you do your won research before sending over your money. It is not a coincidence there are escrow services — direct money transactions like those described in W.
However, Dan, can you please tell me why do you think this website is a scam? If it is a long story, email me — i would love to post your story on the blog to help fellow freelancers in need of a solution for transferring money from paypal to skrill — well, at least help them out NOT to get scammed.
Thanks for your comment, Dan — i also got your long story in my email, thanks for that, too! Hi Diana have you ever heard about Auto-Xchanger.
The concept of this type of websites is a predicament for scam — i am not even sure if it is legal to do such transfers. Unless the site is property of a reputable company which is known for online payments and such transfer is an add-on type of service, then i would advice NOT to use it.
I said to myself oki doki,but when i click on this i got this message: You must withdraw payments from your available balance before you can spend it.
Your available balance is automatically transferred on the first day of every month to your linked card or bank account. You can also withdraw payments from your available balance to your linked card or bank account at any time.
Where do you want to transfer your payments? Choose a Visa debit or credit card issued in Croatia to link to your PayPal account. Then you can then use the payments any way you want.
Your available balance is automatically transferred on the first day of every month. You can also withdraw payments any time you want.
You can have a debit card Visa, not necessary to be a credit card. Do you say Skrill accept your MasterCard debit card as payment method there?
Let em know and thanks! So if it was possible, I would be so glad. Thanks for stopping by, Tahmid, and for telling me why you asked this question in the first place.
I will keep my fingers crossed that PayPal will start operating in Bangladesh as well one day, an soon!
I am a freelancer and i also had the same problem with paypal as already mentioned above the comments visa and master card. Another easy and fastest way was payoneer card but its services are withheld in India lately.
It sure helps — it brought to me some new information about getting paid in India. Well, in fact this is exactly what I was looking for. I cancella my business paypal account and switch to Skrill.
Many of my customers they use PayPal and they have some amount of money on their PayPal account. SO if they want to buy from me they have to pay by Skrill and use they credit card, but they don t want to use their credit card,….
Think this could be one of the answer about why somebody wants to transfer funds from payPal to Skrill….
For the record though, your clients, they can still withdraw money from Paypal and upload them to Skrill via their bank account or card… besides, you can pay with a credit card through PayPal and Skrill without having a PayPal or Skrill account — they both have direct payment processing.
This being said, At one point in time of USA residents we could set our paypal account to not accept credit cards. I had this setting set to no, so only money from their balance could be used to pay for my services.
This was stopping the amount of scammers i run into in the niche that I am in. Now I am having to pay paypal back all this money because they chose to do away with this godsent setting.
Right, i am sorry you have had bad experience as described. Maybe it is a good idea to work with a 3rd party platform handling payments in this case.
I am a freelancer too and I found Paypal not to my fancy after getting limitation from them unreasonably. I am upset and got the feeling they hold my money for 6 months for illegal purposes like taking away the interest from that money.
When you are doing honestly to make a living and fulfilled their requirements, sending them all personal infos lincluding visa bank statement, photo of prepaid visa card front side and still got a No, when most of your customers pay through PP and you have to hold your invoice for it to get to a limit and you can get paid only via wire transfer now, you would understand how I feel.
I feel like sueing paypal or reporting it to some kind of agency even if I may not take back my money but dont know where to start.
I am from Vietnam. The reason for limitation is because, from their explanation, my account got link to another limited account whose owner is my customer from Vietnam too.
So it is my fault for not being a spy that knows every darkest secret my customer is holding. I made a search on the net and the reasons got more funny like I have to pace my time between adding fund and withdrawing fund, not to log in to my account too many times a day, not to withdrawing too much within a day.
I am sorry but it is people freedom to do these things. I changed to use Skrill Moneybooker and found it more flexible and more reasonable for freelancers, I give them my true documents and I got approved, no bitchy reasons.
I can ask my relative to open another paypal account but think otherwise because I dont know what kind of reason paypal will pull when they want to keep my money.
That is why I prefer Skrill and my friend also think so. We love to stick with Skrill and want to know how to transfer fund between them, that is why I came across your site.
Diana we want to link skrill with paypal because we are pakistani its very simple paypal never allowed pakistani to use paypal services and thats very bad all the time.
Thanks for your comment, Javeria! I understand what you are saying — there were some other people stating the same reason. I mean, if you are not eligible to withdraw your money from PayPal — how did you create your account and receive your money in PayPal in the first place?
First impression with Skrill is bad. Those Judeo-British bastards politely stole 3. And now,yes,you guessed,no way I could recover that,since withdrawals costs 5.
Choice between Skrill and Paypal is choice between cancer and tumor. Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Luca — and i am sorry it is so bad with both platforms.
I am one of the lucky ones, i guess — who has never had problems with PayPal… and i am not using Skrill much so no problems there either.
As for simply using ones bankcard, most of the Netherlands are not linked by Visa, Mastercard, and American Express…. Thanks for the addition, Eleese, and for letting us know how it is in the Netherlands.
But i am a bit confused. I want to sell products on Ebay and I am based in Pakistan. Ebay operates in Pakistan where as Paypal does not.
Therefore I cannot link my local bank account with Paypal hence making me out of this business. Majority of the people around the world trust and use Paypal.
They pays out for their purchases through their Paypal account, verified by Ebay. I am trying to find a legitimate way of getting my payments in Pakistan if i sell something on Ebay?
Thanks for your comment and congrats on your new business venture! Unfortunately — i cannot assist you in this matter. I have never used Ebay in my life and have no idea what that platform procedures are.
Since you bring business to them by selling your products through their platform, i believe they would be interested into hearing about your difficulties and accommodating your needs — if nothing else, you will get a definitive answer if you can sell your products on Ebay from Pakistan and how to collect your revenue afterwards, Good luck!
Hi Diana, its good that you took this step at asking PayPal this very asked question, good job Diana, thanks. If you want to purchase from Ebay or some other websites that allow PayPal than you need to have funds on PayPal, but if someone wants to withdraw their money they use Skrill a lot, because it is more cheaper.
So if I want money on my PayPal I just try to find someone who wants money on Skrill, and we do the transfer, I send him on Skrill and he sends me to PayPal, very easy and helpful, but you need to be extra careful because there are a lot of scam people that will use your need and never give you your money, please be careful when you do this.
In Skrill that is very chceap, sending money from one Skrill to another Skrill is very very cheap, couple of cents.
For every transfer I will give you a little bonus, because I really need that transfer, thanks, hope I helped a lot from you guys. Thanks for your comment, Angjel — but the way you describe for transferring money from PayPal to Skrill and vise versa is not a good one — due to the reasons you say — there are A LOT of scam people out there.
In some countries this is probably the only way you can indirectly link Skrill and PayPal. Thanks for the tip, Nick — i did NOT know this is possible but i am sure it will be very useful information for many of the readers here.
Would you like to write a guest post on the topic? A how to with screenshots and all how one can make the transfer through Payoneer?
That would be awesome — let me know! Hi, I may need your help, can you add me Skype: I actually have my Skrill mastercard connected to Paypal without any problems, and can pay with that cc through Paypal.
And the reason I would love to do it the other way around — I can get cash from my Skrill card, without having to go through my bank account.
Sometimes, it is just more convenient. Thanks for your comment, Gila — interesting that you can verify your card in your PayPal and can send funds from it to PayPal but not the other way around?
Just to be sure i understood you correctly — you did verify your Skrill card as a payment method in PayPal — and you are NOT just making payments with your Skrill card via PayPal without actually logging in to your paypal account as seen here , correct?
Right, hopefully PayPal will soon start to operate in Serbia which i thought they did mid but i guess not: Converting PayPal balance to cash is not easy in many countries, thats why some of us try other methods eg skrill…just to fasten the process of converting to cash.
As that is the problem of the majority of people — that they cannot withdraw money directly to their banks — thanks!
I live outside the US also and i had issues retrieving my money from paypal. But i use payoneer to link my my paypal account to my payoneer mastercard which can be used in any atm worldwide that accepts mastercard.
You can also verify your paypal with payoneer; as payoneer gives you a US bank account which you can use to withdraw and verify in paypal, the money goes to your paypal mastercard.
I even did a blog review on payoneer mastercard to inform others. Thanks for your comment, Chaniqua — but i am a bit confused — you once speak about your payoneer card but then, out of the blue — about your PayPal master card?
You withdraw your money from paypal to your payoneer account by clicking profile, add bank enter your bank info given to you by payoneer.
After you add your bank account, click withdraw to your bank account and the amount, the money will be transferred to you payoneer account and thus mastercard.
OK, this is excellent news then — as Payoneer is big in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and the rest in the region, right?
And those are the countries who experience the problem of not being able to withdraw money from PayPal in the first place….
I am surprised it took nearly 90 comments on this post to get to this very simple solution freelancers in that region have at their disposal….
Payoneer is supported by over countries. There are no restrictions as far as i am concerned or aware of. When applying for payoneer, persons must ensure that the data that they enter are completely accurate such as name as you will be asked to verify this using national id , your address as this is where your card will be shipped and so on.
Great, thanks for your clarification, Chaniqua — i am going to put up a notice on top of this post — so people can scroll down to your comment and see your insights.
Thanks for your comment, Michaelzu… Sure thing — from the many comments already available here, i now know better why someone would want to transfer money from paypal to skrill.
Probably no one in the USA will understan: Question might be stupid but your answer is big stupid. People want to withdraw their money from PayPal because they don not have US bank account or a valid debit card and they want to use skrill to withdraw their money directly from PayPal.
Hope you understand the desire of people and will suggest good way to withdraw their money. No need to be rude, Ali — neither the question is stupid, nor the answer… Maybe a language barrier lead to a misunderstanding of some kind.
It is peculiar you say people don not have US bank accounts or a valid debit cards and they want to use skrill to withdraw their money directly from PayPal — but how would they withdraw their money from Skrill if they don; have a valid debit card or bank account?
The problem is way bigger — and it is well addressed already in the post AND in the comments… I would suggest you read thoroughly through all available comments.
But in the comments, there are many suggestions which are good options for indirect transfer, different ways depending on location. If you are reading this comment — this probably means you have read all the other comments already available on the post — and i thank you for it!
Due to increased spam and rude, offensive, and other type of inappropriate comments i started to get on this blog post, i am closing the comments on this one.
I will be writing a white paper on the topic of transferring money from paypal to skrill — but in the meantime, i invite you to read all available comments.
But in the comments, there are several viable suggestions for indirect transfer, different ways work in different countries. Click here to learn more about me The official statement of PayPal and Skrill is that direct transfer is not possible — read the post to see the details as of why.
However, please note that there are some pretty good suggestions in the comments. I cannot guess why people here have posted negative comments about Exchange purse.
I suggest them to contact them again with your concern might be you have violated some of their anti money laundering policy Due to which they have postpone your fund delivery.
Trust me Skrill and Neteller has the same policy due which they can also block your account anytime.
I always use Exchangepurse to exchange my Skrill funds for Paypal instantly. With a very nominal fee. If you deposit an amount directly from your card, this amount can not be use for funding a betting account.
So you can only use for payment to a site which accepts Skrill payments. So most of the time my clients pay me through Skrill, Neteller, Alipay, Paypal etc.
So Of curse, I am here sharing my live experience. Exchange Purse is seriously a best option to exchange your any e-currency in any form.
I am using exchangepurse. Trust me this exchange service will deliver you funds instantly. They have the professional customer service which supports you every time.
At least try their service once for a while to get the heads-up. Not directly, but you can move money from Skrill to your bank account, and from the bank account to Paypal.
Actually, I just made this transit in this website Exchangepurse. They provide this service and fast. I've found so many positive reviews here.
So believe to provide them a chance. I am from Netherlands. Hope all will be fine. They also have other transit options like use Skrill, Paypal, Neteller, Extropay and many more.
Yes only through exchange purse you can easily exchange your digital currency from one wallet to another. You can also exchange your e-currency in any form including cash in few countries.
Use Exchangepurse for instant exchange and less fee. I always prefer to use this to exchange my digital currency. They are very professional and polite and have very good services on their poll.
It seems that it cannt be done directly. These are two different payment systems which are not linked to each other.
So you may transfer money to your bank account and then from your bank account to the Skrill account.
Connect both your Skrill and PayPal accounts to the same bank account and you will be able to easily transfer funds between the two payment systems.
