I am still waiting for my PayPal account to be verified. The bank statement should come within the next two weeks or so. I was hoping that my Ambank credit card can be used to withdraw my PayPal funds. I made a call to AmBank’s customer service last night and was disappointed with the outcome.
According to the customer service staff, AmBank does not allow such fund transfer from PayPal using their credit or debit cards.
I am back at square one now. I have no other choices but to apply for a credit or debit card from another bank. I have read some responses and comments in other blogs and forum and have decided to apply for a Public Bank Visa Electron. Malcolm has reported that he was able to withdraw his PayPal funds into his Visa Electron.
The next problem awaiting me would be the risk of getting my PayPal account frozen. I read some people got their accounts frozen after trying to withdraw their funds into a brand new debit card. There were suggestions to use the card to pay for something first before withdrawing. That way, there are a few transactions before the withdrawal.
I will be getting the forms to apply for a Public Bank Visa Electron later this afternoon. Any other suggestions, recommendations or warnings?
