Hello,



I got a job through ProZ (yes!!! first one!!!) and the outsourcer firm pays via US cheque and via PayPal.



I\'m in Brazil, but I have a bank account in England (well, my husband does), so I would prefer to have the money there, via PayPal, instead of getting a cheque by mail here in Brazil, and having to face the delay/taxes/fees of having to present it here.



At PayPal website, and for what I could read in some of the forums about this issue, in the UK it\'s possible to get the money from PayPal and transfer it to my husband\'s bank account (at Natwest, by the way).



I would appreciate any input from PayPal users in the UK (specially) regarding the good and bad sides of the service.



Thanks,



Adriana

on the left side of the page there is a search box. Try a search for PayPal as this issue has been discussed several times, so you can access directly and very conveniently all older topics that deal with this issue.

Good luck!

thanks and yes, I know the search button, but... Jul 18, 2002

Hello,



Thanks for taking the time to write, but I know the Search button, and I read the messages regarding PayPal and some love and hate opinions.



I believed it was OK to begin another forum, as my question is very specific to the UK users, as I intend to withdraw the money into my husband\'s account at NatWest.



If it\'s not asking too much, I\'d still want to hear from UK-users their opinion.



Thanks,



Adriana

Paypal Jul 20, 2002

I use paypal for most of my transactions and I personally like it. I have not needed to transfer money from paypal to my account yet but I don\'t anticipate any problems. I usually leave the money in the account and use it to fund my other projects. There are many people who do not like paypal and there are several websites that are very anti the company,paypalsucks.com being one of them.

PayPal in UK Jul 21, 2002

I am resident in UK, have a bank account at HSBC and have already been paid many times via PayPal; I have transferred immediately all money to my bank account - it went without any problem, in two-three days the money was on my account. The cost is ca. 5 dollars, as a total. Till now - I am satisfied with this system.



Good luck



Gilda
