Does anybody know if I can receive money in Argentina through PayPal? Does anyone in Argentina use PayPal? If so, how do you do it?
I've never used it, I have created an account but I'm required to write the number of a bank account in the US, seems you cannot change the country, and I don't really have an account in the US and I don't intend to. (why should I?).
Well, if anyone in the Net can help me, I'd really appreciate it.


Thanks
Naty

Better have an US bank account Oct 4, 2007

Well, Paypal favors US account. For better service, users have to use US account to verfity, e.g credit cards as visa or mastercard. Otherwise, withdrawal would be limited to very little.

That bothers me too, as I live in China and do not have any US credit cards or accounts.

Yet, that is Paypal. If Payal improved on verification and othe limits, that would be just perfect.

By the way, if you do not have the US account, you can demand the check or T/T, but it takes days with withdrawal limits.

First of all, you don´t need a US bank account to open a Paypal account.
I live in Buenos Aires, and I use Paypal from time to time. Once I receive a payment through paypal, I use the Xoom.com service, which allows me to send my money from my Paypal account to Argentina and I collect my payment at Banco Frances.
Trust me, try www.xoom.com. Don´t hesitate to mail me if you need help.

Regards

Carlos

How do you do it? Oct 4, 2007

Carlos!
Gracias por tu ayuda.
Una vez que tenés tu cuenta Xoom.com, cómo hacés para pasar el dinero de Paypal a Xoom para poder cobrarlo en el Banco Francés? Por otro lado, no necesitás tener cuenta en el Francés, cierto?
Mil gracias
Natalia

complicated Oct 4, 2007

For your Argentine paypal account to be workable you need to attach an international credit card to the paypal account. If you don't have one, just forget it, it does not work. To cash, that is another story. You can receive a check from paypal which you will have to negotiate at your local bank's foreign exchange department and will cost you about 50 dollars to collect (that is what Banco Galicia told me some time ago).

If you can open a US bank account, then open a US Paypal account, you will save yourself a lot of headaches and cross-border charges.

You don't keep money in Xoom, they just transfer funds to a bank account you specify. One of the possible money sources for such a transfer with them is PayPal.

About credit card Oct 5, 2007

I've just opened an account in PayPal and I still have lots of questions about it. Is it safe to attach your credit card? Is there a limit your can withdraw?
