Sending money to the USA with PayPal - Possible?

Recommended Posts

I have PayPal set up with my K-Bank account. I went to send some money to someone in the USA but it kept asking me to input a payment method, even though I have already confirmed my bank account with PayPal. Does PayPal not allow you to send money from Thailand to the USA?

Normally it should not be a problem to send to another Paypal user/account, unrelated to what country the account has been opened in.

However, if you are trying to send money by registering another persons bank account, that will not be possible. Neither will it be possible to add a foreign bank acc to a Thai Paypal account.

It was from PayPal account to PayPal account. Weird, so maybe they were just having a temporary problem...

Sounds wierd. It have been working before. Either it´s a problem like you say or it´s a new rule. I guess you do best calling support and ask.

You can't debit directly from your bank account, as you can in (for example) the US.

 

If you add your K-Web Shopping Card (assuming you have one) or your Visa debit card (again, assuming you have one, and assuming it is set up for online shopping), you should be able to fund the transfer that way.

recommend to make sure that you, and especially the receiving party, are happy with the overall cost.

I do this regularly. Pay Pal Account to Pay Pal account in another country. Instantaneous transfer at very competitive rate. Check you are doing everything correctly.

If you don't have a SUFFICIENT BALANCE in your Thai account, of course it will need to ask for payment method.

That's definitely not the issue.

Ask him to send you an Invoice or a Money Request from his account, then just pay it.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

Hmm, ok perhaps I wasn't as clear as I could be. You must have sufficient balance in your Thai PayPal account, or it will ask you for payment method. And linking a Thai bank account with sufficient balance does nothing to increase your Thai PayPal account balance. Your Thai PayPal account balance could be 0.0 and linked to a bank account with 1M baht, and it will still ask for payment method. The only way to increase your Thai PayPal balance is for someone to send you money, and you didn't mention that anyone had.

Sending money by PayPal to or from India can also be iffy due to local currency regulations. It's all this money-laundering nonsense from the USA.
