Posted in E-commerce, Payment Gateway, Paypal at 12:16 pm by malcolm

Good day…  PayPal Malaysia is finally here! and some Good News for Malaysia businesses to chew on… (Latest! updated Nov 2009)

Now PayPal has officially support RM and you can now link to your bank accounts, this applies for all the malaysian business. Bravo!

PayPal supports MYR – Ringgit Malaysia

How to link PayPal to Malaysian Bank Accounts

Paypal Candy BarSo, Is this, what Malaysia merchants have been waiting for “decades” (literally), finally come true? does it mean from now on, we don’t have to go through all these hard-ball methods just to get our hard-earned money cash out so we can park in Malaysia bank account to earn some decent interest (for those who didn’t declare the $, beware, it’s rumored that that LHDN (aka Inland Revenue Board / Government Tax Agency) is paying attention to all these $$$ ‘floating’ around in Paypal and want a cut of what you have). Well, you just gonna read on… Yes, this is official, PayPal now offers account balance withdrawals to Visa-branded or MasterCard-banded credit, debit, or prepaid cards in Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Cyprus, Estonia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Indonesia, India, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Philippines, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, UAE, and Uruguay. The new feature will cost $5 per withdrawal and will take 5 to 7 business days to be completed. It would also have a minimum of USD $10(~RM 34) per transaction and a daily maximum withdrawal limit of USD $500 (~RM 1700). If you withdraw the maximum limit, the cost of withdrawal will go down to only 1% of the total amount. The easy 3-step process for withdrawal showed as below.

    hi felex, we haven’t tried out with MOL / UOB debit cards. but if they are VISA-branded (like pbbank, tunecard), very likely it will work. :) you might want to checkout the blogosphere seeing what people have to say.

    Possibility that we can use Maybankard Visa Debit on Paypal. Just check out their FAQs – http://www.maybank2u.com.my/site_functions/faq/index.shtml?visa_debit#a4

    Can I use my Maybankard Visa Debit outside Malaysia?
    You can use your Maybankard Visa Debit abroad provided you activate the overseas flag prior to your departure. The activation process can be done through our Maybank ATMs or through our 24 hours customer service centre at 1-300-88-6688. Your Maybankard Visa Debit can then be used for retail purchases at any VISA merchants and cash withdrawal at any ATMs with a VISA PLUS logo.

    hi malcolm,

    i have a verified pay pal account and its linked with my eBay account. as ignorant as any newbie could be regarding these transactions, i would like you to help me understand the withdrawal term.

    i have already made a few purchase of goods through ebay using pay pal. and of course pay pal is linked with both of my credit card (maybank and Ambank).
    you mention earlier that as of 2008 credit cards are not applicable here in malaysia? if so, what would happen to my then verified pay pal account and how shall i make withdrawals? also i am an active seller in eBay. payment are all made through pay pal. please help me. i don’t have visa electron debit card.

    please advise.

    Paypal has their own debit card. Would this card able to provide same convenience as PB bank debit card? or can we save the USD5 using that card since we do not need to do the transfer?

    I was at Maybank to make a proper enquiries about their Visa Dbit Card usage with paypal and I was told that it will not work for now thy are working on it. So the best is to open an account with Public Bank and use their card with Paypal since some one have tried it.

    Yup, i have also found out that Maybank Visa Devit Card is USELESS online. Sheisshh….

    Gonna open a PB account.

    I did tried maybank and query on international money withdrawal and they said that we have to provide information on the transactions. What! we need to provide evidence for the withdrawal and yet they will ask us to wait…

    But with al rajhi my life has been easy. Why coz I dont need to worry about the money from paypal as it will be creditted into my account. Yes sometimes they take time to do the transaction but at the end of the day the money will land into my account. No worries.

    I was stunned when I knew that the money that I’m making through paypal had been stuck in my account. Wondering how to withdraw the money from paypal but Al Rajhi made it ease

    hi shaffir, so a “foreign bank” actually does better in meeting customer needs that our Malaysia Biggest Bank.

    Maybank CEO should really read this and start getting the product to support the Paypal withdrawal, after all, those money “park” at paypal if withdraw to Maybank, can easily add RM5+ million (assumption, USD 10 withdrawal by 150,000 people – the unofficial figure of Malaysia Paypal Accounts) . Let’s say we raised the figure to USD 100 / Account then a whopping RM50 Million!!! These money sure come handy for Malaysia in view of the economy downturn, don’t you agree?

    PS: I know there was Paypal account that has USD 30,000 and want to cash in.

    MBB Visa Debit cant be used. MBB denied the online transaction.

  30. DT said,

    March 9, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    I tried registering with UOB Visa Electron debit card. They denied the transaction so I guess UOB can’t be used too.

    You said you successfuly made Pasypal withdrawal through AlRajhi. How reliable and fast was it?

  32. admin said,

    May 18, 2009 at 10:29 am

    hi guys, for alrajhi, i heard in the market they are people facing some problem (while there are people successfully link it up to paypal) when getting the authentication code in the debit card billing and it does not show up! So do take note. Most reliable way still Public Visa Debit Card. Cheers.

    Hi guys! I want to ask y’all, which visa card i can used to make online transaction? I have BSN matrix card, can i used it?

  34. admin said,

    June 15, 2009 at 11:26 am

    hi hassu, theoretically speaking, ALL visa card can be used to transact online. But again…

    It largely depends on the issuing bank (meaning the bank issue the card), whether they allow / disallow it or supporting / not supporting it.

    So if in doubt, check with the bank credit card department. They will know better. It’s all done on the software layer. :)
