My previous post on how did you withdraw your PayPal funds has generated some interesting responses. One question that came up from the discussion is whether PayPal accepts E*Trade’s Hong Kong bank accounts. PayPal has no problem accepting E*Trade accounts previously because E*Trade gave its users U.S. bank accounts. However, E*Trade has switched to Hong Kong bank accounts not too long ago.
I checked PayPal’s website and retrieved a list of bank accounts from 35 countries that are accepted by PayPal. The 35 countries are as follow.
- Czech Republic
- French Guiana
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
- United States
If you reside in one of the countries above, you can choose to withdraw your PayPal funds into your local bank or into a U.S. bank account.
Since Hong Kong is one of the countries that PayPal accepts, I believe you can still transfer your PayPal funds into the given Hong Kong bank account by E*Trade. I have never used E*Trade so I may be wrong. Please correct me if I made a mistake.
Select your country from the list in this page to check whether PayPal accepts your bank account from your country. Happy making money online!
