I have been working online for sometime now. This means that I have been able to make a few dollars online.

But now my biggest worry comes in at this point. I cant withdraw the money fbeen toying from where I am; Kenya to be precise. Paypal is not acceptable in any of the banks here.

I have toying around with the idea of using 2check out in my future orders but this does not solve the present problem.

Would anyone kindly help me out?

    Buy a prepaid debit card at Walmart, then use the routing number and checking account number they give you to confirm your bank account with PayPal. If you don't know how to find this, click on the "Get your tax refund faster" or whatever it is. They will supply you with the direct deposit information for your card.

    Then you can withdraw the money on to your card (this can take 3-5 business days)

    Also, once you have confirmed your bank account (or at least in the US) you can apply for the PayPal MasterCard. When you get that, you can go to any ATM and instantly withdraw any money in your PayPal account.

    PS: There is no need to create multiple threads. Someone will answer you when they can.

            Us Canadians CANNOT apply for a PayPal Debit Card either :confused:

            Therefore, I need to transfer the funds to my bank account and even then it's still not available to me for approx. 3-5 days.

      I have been thinking of trying that out but it seems not to be applicable.

    Have u tried asking for help with paypal support team ? If paypal is accepting payments from your country then obviously there should be a bank which accepts paypal as well.

    I'm looking at your original post again. I'm not sure this is a function of your bank working with PayPal. I think it is whether your bank will receive money wired to it. Most, if not all banks in the US will wire and received wired money.

    Have you communicated with PayPal? What was their response?

      Kenya is listed but money must be withdrawn to a US bank. You can use money in your paypal account to make purchases but you'd need to ask paypal how you can get the money out as I don't see a way listed.

        Its good that Kenya is recognized by paypal but one clear thing is that you can never withdraw money directly from paypal in most of the African countries........I guess it's only in south Africa where it is possible.

        Thank you for the rsponse.....

          But the reason has nothing to do with Paypal. It is because of the banks in your country and the way they operate.

            I am very sure about this but to some extent I can agree with you since they all seem not to know what is paypal.

      I saw your message and I have been trying to work around the idea but am now sure there is no way out to it. I have contacted various banks but there seems to be no source of help.

      Thank you very much for your help and support.......

    It's very easy you can click the withdraw money tab on your main account page and choose the bank account. If its local US bank the funds are transferred for free.
