Paypal said that they do not have translation services of Arabic and it took more than two months when we had exchange of emails and faxes and my account has not been verified yet although i enrolled in expanded use number and still have limitations.

More explanation, when you fax your documents as proof to paypal review team in Italian or French or Arabic, do they ask you to fax in English. I faxed in Arabic and they said that I have to fax my papers in English because there is no staff who can translate. This means that paypal accepts only English documents, is that right or I misunderstood them?

Thanks in advance friends

maybe you should address your complaints to Paypal Apr 8, 2006

Actually, and with all the due respect, I don't quite understand if :
1. it is a question..does paypal have translation service in Arabic?
2. or if you are communicating that they have it but the service doesn't work properly, since you had some problems with it.

Maybe you should address your complaints to Paypal and try to solve the problem.

Best Regards

Hello Apr 9, 2006

If you check this page, it already says that users in Israel can only withdraw money to a US bank account. So, I assume that you have a bank account in the US. If so, you can send a small amount of money to PayPal from this account, and get verified. That money remains yours, I mean you wouldn't be paying it to PayPal, but only transferring it from your bank account to your PayPal account as proof of your identity. Needless to say, you can withdraw that amount whenever you want.

As I used this very same method (from a German bank account), I do not know the answer to your main question. But it is reasonable to think that they are not likely to have staff for every language.

Hope this helps.

Good luck,


Hmm, sorry, when I clicked the link I gave above, I got this message:

"You have requested an outdated version of PayPal. This error often results from the use of bookmarks..."

So, to go to that page go to, at the bottom of the page you'll see country names, click "More" and there you are.
