    Paypal for International Residents?

    I would like to use paypal to get paid for my affiliate revenue, but have some questions in mind.

    Do they have any charges for international residents?

    They claim to charge for receiving a check, but I would like to know if they charge for sending and receiving payments as well.

    Also, do they have a debit card for international users?

    There will obviously be a charge for wiring your checks. Besides that, I don't think they charge anything else (refer to their International Nation's list).

    If you have a premium or business account, they charge you a small fee for receiving payments only.

    About the Intl Debit Card; I am not sure...

    Check with your bank if they have a US deposit account,

    If so, you might able to get a direct deposit from paypal to your bank's US account then transfer it to your HOME country's account

    No extra charge for international residents (paying or receiving).
    They do not charge to send any payment.
    They will only charge if you want them to send YOU a check.

    Deposits or withdrawls in and out of your bank account are free if in US but cost $1.50 for international accounts.

    I'm pretty sure when you receive payments by check doesn't cost any more then payments by credit card.

    Hope this helps!

    From what I understand, paypal does not seem to send checks.

    Rather, it deposits directly into my bank, even if I am an international resident. Am I right or what? The deposit cost only $2.75, seems too cheap to be true.

    Anyone from non-U.S but withdrew cash from paypal before?

    I have... And it's a no go. I opened a US Dollar account, and after speaking to a PayPal representative, they advised me it can't be done... Not now, at least!

    As far as withdrawals from your PayPal account into your bank account: it's automatically exchanged into your country's currency.

    Just to make sure I got it right.

    So any withdrawal would cost the amount stated on their fees page and the money will go directly into my bank. No need to process checks.

    Anyway, also need to know if anyone ever experienced any problem.

    You can have multiple email addresses under one account so if someone send a payment to either one you get it. But when you send payment you don't have a choice on what email address to send from.
