Withdraw PayPal Funds From Credit/Debit Card In Malaysia

Over the weekend, I have read a few posts that reported PayPal allowing Malaysians to withdraw their PayPal funds into selected credit/debit cards. This is great news to me since I am deciding on a way to withdraw my funds within the next two months.

This change was reflected in PayPal’s Payments (Sending, Receiving, and Withdrawals) Policy (modified on 30/8/2007). In section V. Withdrawals #0, it reads:

Original Credit Withdraw. Users in Italy, India, Luxembourg, Israel, Malaysia, Argentina, Philippines, Turkey, Brazil, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Indonesia, Uruguay, San Marino, Slovakia, Latvia, Chile, Romania, Cyprus, Slovenia, United Arab Emirates, Estonia, Malta, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein and Iceland may withdraw funds from the PayPal system to their valid credit or debit card in the form of a credit to the card on file with PayPal.

Therefore, apart from Malaysia, the other countries that were mentioned are allowed to withdraw their PayPal funds through a credit/debit card as well.

It was reported that some credit/debit cards do not allow such transactions from PayPal. The AmBank NextG debit card is one of those that can’t be used for this transfer. I have an AmBank credit card. I wonder if mine will work. I guess I either have to just give it a try or phone up AmBank service centre to ask.

I read from a forum post that someone called up their credit card company and was advised:

1. If you got credit card balance, amount transferred from PayPal will be knock-off with that credit balance
2. If the credit card balance is zero or less than the amount transferred from PayPal, you are not advise to withdraw at the ATM. It will be considered as cash advance withdrawal and subject to charges eventhough the credit card amount is already debit balance
3. What you can do is to give an instruction to the credit card issuer to transfer that debit balance amount to your saving or current account (clear in 5 working days) with no charge

This is great news to all of us but is also creating a lot of confusions. I won’t go rushing in withdrawing my funds just yet. No point being overcharged or risk any penalty from PayPal.

    Hello my name is Tingting, I will be happy to assist you with your
    question regarding your PayPal account.

    We apologize for the delay in responding to your service request.

    Yes, Malaysian Verified PayPal account could withdraw fund to credit card now, but it is just available for Visa credit card at this time. If you want to withdraw fund to your credit card, please add a Visa credit card to your PayPal account and complete Expanded Use Process.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding this matter, and wish you continued success on PayPal.

    Sincerely,

    @datohead
    Are you from PayPal?

    Thanks for your info. Is it a must for PayPal users to join the expanded use program before they can withdraw to their credit card? Only Visa? I thought I read that they accept Master cards as well?

    Well, I’ve been to 5 different banks (EON, Public, Al-Rajhi, AmBank, RHB)to find out how their Debit Cards work. Finally, I learned that all Debit Cards issued by Malaysian Banks with ‘MasterCard’ logo cannot beused to withdraw your money from paypal. It only works one way, thai is only to make payment out.

    I guess we are not ready for global internet business yet.

    I read somewhere which says that Debit Card with ‘Visa’ logo can be used to withdraw money from Paypal. Is it true?

    I’m having trouble going round banks looking for Debit Card which I can use to withdraw my money from Paypal. Currently I’m using EON Bank Debit Card (MasterCard) logo which can’t be used to withdraw my money from Paypal.

    Is there any Debit Card issued by Malaysian banks I can use to withdraw money from Paypal that you know of?

    Thanks.
