  • Right, so I have loads of money in my PayPal...

    ...and I have no way to withdraw it.
    Why couldn't they say somewhere clearly that international accounts (at least the vast majority of them) are not accepted?!
    I have a nice amount of money there ($497.99 to be exact), and the sum only gets bigger and bigger every day... and currently I have no way of using it other than buying in their stupid shops!

    Any ideas?

    Paypal it to an American that you trust, and have them get it for you and mail you a check. You would have to trust them a hell of a lot though.

              Thats what happened to my friend as well. He sent me all his money through paypal and then I sent him a cheque. I lost about 30 bucks on it though, due to the exchange to canadian funds

              Oh well, he deserved it, he did a lot of good work for me

                  I'd be more than happy to transfer the money... for a small fee of course.

                        glad to see it's sorted out.. it's annoying with paypal not being able to allow alot of international accounts to withdraw... i was annoyed until they allowed Australian accounts

                          Oh no ....

                          Longer term possibilities:

                          Have someone you trust set up a checking account in US bank, then send you the ATM card. You can withdraw money from a US account nearly anywhere in the world via an ATM machine. After it's set up, the account address could probably be changed to your home. Also, with a US account, you could request a PayPal ATM/Debit card.

                          You might be able to set up a US account online with one of the big US-based international banks that have international branches in Israel. Maybe Citibank?

                          Setup an account with an online bank that has general ATM access to funds. Don't keep anything beyond minimum balance in such an account, though, as you never know how long these companies will be around.

                            well, if you sent it to me, I would keep it for you and you wouldn't have to worry about all those pesky taxes!

                              FireFly, if you don't mind me asking - why do you have a large amount in there, and why does it grow daily? Is people giving you money to keep your site up (like a charity fund)?

                              Also, I have a International account for me (Im Canadian) and I have the money withdrawn to my bank account in Canada. Works fine for me.
