It will depend on Bank in which person is holding account . In Most of the cases it can be done online by loging in your Bank Account unlike India where one has to visit Bank . if every details in Transfer are correct you can get Swift practically next day .Very easy & Safe .

Default Re: Paypal-Maestro linking

Is there a specific procedure to link Paypal account with an SB Maestro debit card? For those who are not aware, Maestro debit cards do not have a CVV number or an official expiry date unlike Visa or real Mastercard.

I tried many times and paypal's India specific sign-up page detected the card as a Mastercard since there is no maestro option. Also, the 5Y+8M option for expiry date as well as last 3 digits of card number/PIN no: as CVV were tried, but to no avail. It keeps throwing out a card error and yes, the card is working fine at ATMs.

Almost every online trick failed to work. So, is there a solution to this?

I tried in vain to link my Axis Bank Priority International Debit Card [Visa] that had CVV and expiry date. PayPal does not link with debit cards.

Try with any credit card; finally, I linked my Axis Bank Platinum Credit Card [Visa] successfully and imported some accessories for my Linea paying through PayPal.

According to their site, debit cards are accepted. But in reality, it won't work. That's interesting. I thought somebody might've found out a trick by now. Got to live with internet banking then.

Default Re: Paypal:- Info needed.

Has anyone tried using PayPal to transfer money abroad?

Are there better options available? I have not used PayPal ever and need to transfer some money to a vendor abroad.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Yes, I use paypal for all transactions abroad. You can also check out Skrill and Xoom. But personally speaking, i would prefer Paypal.

Thanks for the feedback.

I tried using PayPal and linked my debit card to it. But the transaction failed and yet I was charged some amount as a transfer fee type. I read on PayPal site that payment transfers are free of any charges to the buyer, it's only the seller that pays some transfer fee.

I am not sure why that happened and now have doubts using PayPal again.

Edit - Just read that there is some fee for money conversion, however since my payment did not transfer, I shouldn't have been charged that fee.

Once you add your card to Paypal, they will deduct $1.99 for verification. This amount will be credited back to your account in couple of weeks or within a month. Yes, the other party will have to pay the transaction fee, say around 5-6% of the total amount.
