Hi guys, looking for some advice.

 

I have quite a bit of money in my Paypal account. I don't want to withdraw it to my UK bank (so don't advise that please) and cannot link my Thai bank to it.

 

So I want to use the money to buy things, but I can't find any websites in Thailand which accept it. Does anyone know of any?

Thanks for your comment. When I read that, I though "how could I have missed that?", so I double checked again, and they don't accept it, they accept the following payments only:

 

  • Cash on Delivery

  • Credit Card

  • Debit Card

  • Counter Service

  • ATM

  • Online Banking Payment

  • Credit Card Installments

  • Lazada Wallet

  • TrueMoney Wallet

You should be able to link a Thai bank account to it. The only problem was to transfer money from this account to PayPal. But the other way round it should work.

You can't, I contacted Paypal about it.

I have half my company running through paypal and linked to my thai accounts. Maybe you can open a new account with Thai details and link it that way?

Maybe your british account. But try opening a new account and transfer it to there?

Yes, that's what Paypal said, but you can't have 2 Paypal accounts so I would have to close my UK one and don't really want to do that as I use it to pay for things online fairly regularly, but not often enough to make use of this balance. Really if I could just find an online Thai company that would accept it and actually sells something that I want, that would be the easiest option. Computer parts or meat would be ideal, but no dice with either of those so far.

If you set up a Thai Paypal then yes no problem. I can't do that.

Why can't you set up a Thai PayPal account? I have a US one and later I set up an additional Thai account. Then I moved funds from the US to the Thai PayPal account.

I tried to deposit money from my Thai bank acc to my paypal acc but was informed you can't do this from a Thai bank. I know this won't help.

Nonsense, you can have multiple PP accounts as well link a Thai bank account. 
I even have my Dutch and Thai account linked into it. Otherwise just transfer the funds to a local PP account, doesn't get easier than they offer already.

Unless your money is fraud money, then you will be given a hard time to move or use it.

You could open a second PayPal account with a Thai bank and transfer your money from A to B to bank.

 

There are lots of websites which accept PayPay. I am pretty sure the majority of pages accept it.

Lazada.co.th is one of them

quite sometime Lazada stopped receiving paypal payments....
