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.
