I Just Requested For My First Nuffnang Check

After putting up Nuffnang banners in both my blogs for a few months, I am now able to request for a check. Let’s see if Nuffnang really pays cash, eh? ;-) It is not much but will still contribute to my Nikon D40x fund. Yipeee!

First time requesting a check from Nuffnang

I am now starting to enjoy the efforts that I put into blogging. Checks are coming in. PayPal is getting fatter. The only problem would be to cash out from PayPal. My sister is studying in NZ now, so I think I will be cashing out through her. After analyzing all my options, I think this is the safest, fastest and cheapest way for me to cash it out. I am still looking into the E*Trade option though but that won’t be anytime soon.

PayPal Accepts Bank Account From 35 Countries

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.

  1. Australia
  2. Austria
  3. Belgium
  4. Canada
  5. China
  6. Czech Republic
  7. Denmark
  8. Finland
  9. France
  10. French Guiana
  11. Germany
  12. Greece
  13. Guadeloupe
  14. Hong Kong
  15. Hungary
  16. Ireland
  17. Italy
  18. Japan
  19. Martinique
  20. Mexico
  21. Netherlands
  22. New Zealand
  23. Norway
  24. Poland
  25. Portugal
  26. Reunion
  27. Singapore
  28. South Korea
  29. Spain
  30. Sweden
  31. Switzerland
  32. Taiwan
  33. Thailand
  34. United Kingdom
  35. 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.

PayPal accepts Hong Kong 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!

How Did You Withdraw Your PayPal Funds?

One thing I have been doing is to find ways to make money online. I can say that I have made *some* money online now as my PayPal balance is showing some figures. Not to mention some other funds that is still pending. I am aiming to earn enough to buy myself that Nikon D40x within these two months. I think I am on target. *fingers crossed*

The problem now is how do I withdraw my PayPal funds?

I have searched and found HongKiat’s VMI ATM card method. However, there is a comment written by “Jenny Low” that is scaring me away.

Paypal stated your name must match the beneficiary name in the USA bank. VMI is not under your name. It is under their name. They confirm many people got scammed especially if you have tons of money. Next thing you know, your money is gone.

Is that true? Or is Jenny just a random joker?

There is an alternative — E*trade. I don’t know much about it. I read some where that you will open a real US bank account under your name with it. I did a search on E*trade and found some stock trading website. Damn. Anyone using this?

If you really do not want to apply for neither of the two, you can always get someone to withdraw the money for you. What you do is that you transfer your PayPal fund to them and they transfer RM into your account. Of course, there will be some “charges” in between. How much? I have no idea.

To all money making bloggers:
Have you withdrawn money out from your PayPal before? How do you do it? If you ask someone to cash it out for you, how much is the cost of it?
