Withdraw PayPal to your debit card directly

This should be good news for a majority of Malaysian PayPal account holders who do not have the VMI card in order to withdraw their funds from PayPal without printing anything. It seems that PayPal has now allowed Malaysians to withdraw their funds from their PayPal accounts directly to their credit/debit card with the appearance of a second option in the “Withdraw” options menu, although the process will take between 5 to 7 days and a fee of USD5 will be charged.

If you have a credit card when verifying PayPal, I doubt this feature will be of much use, however. Thus, you are encouraged to switch to a debit card, e.g. Public Bank Visa Electron debit card. A Malaysian blogger has written a step-by-step guide on how to withdraw the funds to your debit card.

For me, I will still continue using my VMI card although the fees are certainly much higher, i.e. USD2 for withdrawing to the VMI card and another USD5 when withdrawing from the ATM machine, which makes it a total of USD7. Why? Because its faster for me and the process takes only three days. Plus, the VMI card acts just like an actual US bank account, which thus allows me to receive funds directly from other banks in the US via a direct deposit or a EFT bank transfer.

    1. I am sticking to my chettiar eventhough I got the VMI card. Lazy to run to bank and scared they freeze my account. I don’t have PubicBank LOL so must apply first.

    4. Okay so like something urgent came up and I had to cancel/refund my purchase. When doing my purchase, it directly withdraws from my debit card. So what I’m wondering is, how long exactly does it take to refund back to my debit card/bank account? If it’s longer than one day, is there a way to speed up the process by contacting customer service via phone to paypal customer service? Obviously I need this speed up because it’s urgent, will they be able to locate my account and quickly transfer the money back into my bank for me so I can withdraw out of it? I mean on my paypal account it already said refund “completed” so I’m curious on this matter. Thanks for your time.

    8. I’ve read that some people request a cheque from Paypal as a method of withdrawing funds, but I don’t seem to have this option. Is it necessary for your bank account to be confirmed for this option to become available? I’m unable to confirm my bank account because apparently my bank refuses the direct debit signal (or some such nonsense).

      Frustratingly, I can’t seem to transfer funds directly to my debit card either – the last time I tried it failed, with no explanation from Paypal or my bank (who both claimed the other was responsible), so I lost all my money and was charged £14 on top.

      I’m totally unable to transfer Paypal funds into my bank account by any means at the moment. 🙁

    10. People say that there’s no need to send money to your paypal account and wait the 3-5 days since if you buy something while it’s empty paypal just withdraws the amount from your bank account directly. True?

      For best answer please also tell me if verifying a debit card is worth it. Does it speed money up reaching the paypal account?

    12. I’m selling something for the first time on ebay and I’m trying to figure out how i receive the payment. I know i can link my checking account to my paypal account but will paypal charge me for selling and if so how much? Any info on paypal and how it works would be useful.

    13. How are fees charged by ebay and paypal for penny auctions?
      Ebay normally takes something like a 9% final value fee and I think paypal takes 3%-4% of whatever goes into your paypal account. How do they handle penny auctions? Do you get like 0.4 cents or how does that work?

    14. So I bought something on ebay but I wasn’t satisfied with my purchase so I returned it. I just got an email stating that my payment has been refunded through Paypal and was given the receipt number and everything. But the problem is, I don’t even have a Paypal account! So I decided to make a Paypal account but now I don’t know what to do to put the money in there because my balance still says $0.00. Can someone help me please?

    15. I recently started a Paypal account to pay someone around $2000 funded by my creditcard. I have just verified it today but it is still blocking my payment. Apparently I cannot use the creditcard at the time and I have to try again later. I have managed to transfer some money in a smaller amount over. Paypal is now saying ‘Authorization Failed’ for future transfers. Apparently this is because my account is new and they think it is suspicious.

      Are there any other ways from other Payment processors that can take my creditcard payment and then deposit the amount to the designated Paypal account?

      Creditcard has been confirmed by my Bank to be correct and working. My Paypal is enrolled in the ‘Expanded Use Program’ and is a Verified account. Paypal backed by Creditcard as Paypal do not provide Bank funding option for NZ’ers.

      Both paying and receiving ends of the payments have their accounts located in New Zealand.
      I have called Paypal and they said it was due to the spike as it was my first transfer and it was too big. For those who have gotten this error, will my creditcard ever work again? I was hoping to try in a few days.

    16. I had made a paypal account from paypal site giving only my home address and e-mail address.But they are not telling clearly how to credit money to that account and withdraw from that account.Will anyone explain all those procedures in PayPal system in simple terms please.I dont have a credit card or neither want to take one.

    17. Okay… well I just sold something on ebay. And the buyer sent me the payment via PayPal. But paypal says that they put the payment temporarily on hold. And I read that the funds will be sent to my balance if I get a positive feedback or if I print a shipping label using PayPal. So I printed the shipping label and am going to send the item tomorrow. But how long will it take for the payment to be released from hold after I printed the shipping label? Anyone with personal experience with this?

    18. Example. Okay say i want to buy something that cost $15. My Paypal balance is $10 and I want to pay the rest on my credit card. Would Paypal automatically use up all of the paypal balance and then pay the rest with the card? HELP how do I combine the money?
      Ed Fox that does not answer my question and also i was paid by ebay to my paypal account.

    19. I know using paypal directly on it’s site is illegal bu can i deposit cash into betting sites using a paypal debit card?

    20. Playing online poker from the UK and signing up with a site just how easy is it to withdraw various amounts of your own winnings, if you are good enough to be winning regularly that is? I have a bank account and VISA debit cards but do you really have to be on online banking as well? or do they send cheques? Just asking in advance of playing for the first time, any advice appreciated.

    21. I just made a paypal account not too long ago and I “bought” some stuff on ebay using paypal. Im not really sure if I actually have money on my paypal, but what I did do is go to “Transfer to bank account” and I put my account number and routing number. I have money on my debit card there, but im not sure if do have money on my actual paypal account cause i dont want to get fees. HELP?!

    22. I bid and won a dlp projector for $400 + 49 shipping. It has been 3 days since I paid and have not received any kind of email stating that it was shipped.

      I received an email from another buyer who is having the same problem.

      I just sent an email to the seller requesting an update.

      I already paid for the item through paypal. The money has already been withdrawn out of my saving account (I knew I should have used my visa debit card instead, but I always got this thing that said it was not necessary).

      There is a 200 buyer protection thing on the listing if you use paypal.

      Should initiate a dispute now with paypal or give the buyer a day or two to respond? For all I know, he could be shipping it right now and will respond to me later tonight.
