Cannot Withdraw PayPal From Al Rahji Debit Card

UPDATE: There are reports of successful withdrawal using Al Rahji debit card. The only “problem” is that the conversion rate seems to be a little lower than the others. I wonder if they offer a lower rate or the rate was lower at the time when others withdrew the money.


Just when I had given up waiting for my Public Bank Visa Electron debit card and wanted to give Al Rahji Bank a try, KennyP alerted me that Jimmy’s attempt to withdraw PayPal funds into his Al Rahji debit card has failed.

Does this mean that the only debit card that currently works with PayPal is Public Bank’s Visa Electron debit card? I guess that’s why Public Bank could be slightly arrogant when it comes to debit card applications. They are the only one that works. Take it or leave it.

In my case, I have no other choice but to wait patiently for them to process my application. One of the reasons I need to debit card ASAP is so that I have some time in case they limit access to my account and need me to fax over my documents.

    Public Bank’s Visa Electron debit card should be the best card for PayPal withdrawal at the moment.

    LOL. Yeah, as long as you have a way that works, it’s great. Now my best option will be a debit card. I just hope Public Bank can process mine ASAP.

    Yeah, looks like it unfortunately. You’re welcome πŸ™‚

    No problem. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the info. Means PB still the better choice right?

    Well, that is what I am told. I can’t confirm it though. If it doesn’t work, I don’t see why we should apply for it. All I can do now is to hope that Public Bank processes my application ASAP. I just hope that it is not lost.

    I”m applying debit card from PBE yet it needs 2 to 3 weeks to process! I’m urgently needing it to transfer fund from paypal but they told me can only be done after CNY. πŸ™ … How come it takes so long ? Do they have to check my background, do they not?? Funny i already have savings account with them and they still have doubt on me? Citibank credit card application card also less than a week. I heard that Al-Rahji bank can make it on the spot once open a saving account with them.

    Anyhow, i really do not know how bank works. Perhaps al-rajhi would have a faster process procedure?

    Does Al-Rajhi impose charge if withdraw from its ATM as well as other banks’ ATM?
