I've been getting number of payments via Paypal lately but there are several restrictions on the amount of money I can withdraw from Paypal.

Using Xoom or Moneybookers is fine, they have a circa USD1000/month limit, but at Paypal there seems to be a overal limit, period. Like USD 2000/forever. So soon I won't be able to use Xoom to transfer my Paypal funds to my Brazilian Bank Account - at least that's what I get from the website "my limits" info - yes, even after credit card confirmation (which I haven't completed yet, though my account is Premium).

So I was thinking that I might need to solicit a check from Paypal. Does anyone know if it is worth to wait until a large USD amount is reached and what are the fees I pay to Paypal and to my Brazilian Bank (Banco do Brasil)?

Is it a reasonable option or should I just stop using Paypal?

However, maybe someone can be more constructive than I am being. What about a bank transfer? It would be worth it for a large sum like this.
