Paypal Mauritius can now receive money :)
I dont have any questions, just wanted to inform you all that if you have a paypal account registered in Mauritius you are now able to receive payments, this was not possible before. You can withdraw the money via a bank account in the U.S(you may use something like Payoneer - Payoneer.com ) or to a debit card (haven't tried if this one so dont know if it works, im using payoneer)
I know this is not a forum, but still i wanted you let you all know since every now and then someone will ask this.
I've just contacted Paypal and they told me "At this time, PayPal customers in you region cannot add a bank account or receive payments in to their PayPal account. You can continue to send money to anyone with an email address."
Thanks for letting us know.
Do you have an ecommerce website or are you doing affiliates/contextual ads or some other services and receiving money through Paypal?
Yup, i'm an affiliate marketer.
Btw, you can also withdraw the money to your prepaid card (mine is from MCB). It takes around 5 days to show up as a "credit voucher" on your bank statement.
I'm now loving Paypal!
Ah good. Do you incur any fees when withdrawing to your MCB card?
withdraw money to prepaid card ?? me too i have mcb.
how you get his work ?
Yup, i was charged $2 by MCB and $5 by paypal.
Make sure your prepaid card is properly linked to your paypal account, otherwise the withdrawal will be rejected by MCB (i was told so by paypal).
So i linked my mastercard prepaid to paypal , then i click on withdrawal ?
or i should contact paypal ?
@keshav007 can you elaborate on how to properly linked mcb prepaid card to paypal.I had my mcb prepaid card linked to paypal and had also got it verified but once when I had tried to withdraw money from paypal it was rejected
Same here. I linked my MCB visa prepaid card to my PayPal account and the withdraw was rejected. I called PayPal and they say it's the MCB who doesn't allow it, but on their website, they say they can withdraw to any card bearing a Visa logo...
Is there anyone who's been successful at withdrawing from PayPal in Mauritius?
for now payoneer is best . But there is a fees .i don't remember . it's about 1000 rs per years .
that i don't like .
anyone try skrill ??
I had tried withdrawing money from my paypal account to my mcb prepaid account and it did not work and the money returned back to my paypal account.
have you tried skrill ?
yes I have tried with that also I could not withdraw money
i thought skrill is only hope.
Do not get exited about payoneer. I used payoneer since 2012! i am now been a prey for Paypal!
I was allocated a routing number + bank account and everything required by paypal.
All went well since the day paypal issued a legal notice setting a suspension on my account being that the account credentials are not right.
When i contacted payoneer they continuously provided me with new bank accounts and could not resolved the problem.
In order to keep my paypal account safe i stop all transactions with Payoneer. I would not advise anyone payoneer if you do not wish to be framed by paypal and your credentials used: name, email and other details.
dont get exited about it if it works perfectly well at the beginning.
best bet is skrill. as good as paypal + linked to your bank account
have you withdraw money to your local bank account in mauritius ?
With moneybookers yes
You register by sending them proof of address bank details and it works. no stress money sent to your account
advisable to become a confirmed memeber then you can wthdraw funds instantly takes 2-5 day to reach your local mru account.
Thank you very much for your detailed answer
You can also use E-Coin, which offers a debit card accepted by Paypal, and deliverable in Mauritius.
