If you are in one of the countries (e.g., certain central and east European countries) where Paypal withdrawals cannot be made to a local bank account, but only to a US bank account or a debit/credit card, can you tell me what happens to the money when it is withdrawn to a debit card? Does it just appear as a credit in the balance of the bank account to which the debit card is linked? After all, it can't really stay "on" the debit card, which has no balance of its own, but is just a means of accessing funds in the underlying bank account.
Thanks,
Rudi

Debit card issued by a Romanian bank Aug 6, 2012

It appears as a credit in the balance of the bank account to which my debit card is linked.

agree with Lucica Aug 6, 2012

You should test it with a small amount (like €10) if you are afraid it might get lost.
It takes 2-3 days to arrive, and for some reason (maybe that's just my bank) my bank
does not charge a receiving fee so you won't lose money on the transaction.
