Paypal Account Type
There are 3 types of Paypal account.
   1. Personal account – The basic account that Paypal has. This account is suitable
       for people who always buy online or for eBay buyers. You can send or receive
       payment from other Paypal account but you cannot accept credit card or debit
       card if you sell something in eBay.

       the ability to accept payment via credit card and debit card. This account type is
       perfect for you if you sell products online under your own name and need to
       accept credit card or debit card. There are small fees when you receive payment.

There are 3 methods I know to cash out your Paypal funds.
   1. Exchange/Sell your Paypal Fund.
   2. Get a debit card
   3. Open a US bank account.
So I will explain one by one.

Exchange or Sell your Paypal Fund
I think it the easiest and fastest method to cash your Paypal fund. But the problem is that
Paypal does not permit you to exchange or sell the Paypal fund. If they find out, they will
freeze your account. So if you choose this method, please sell it to someone you trust and
don’t overdo it or Paypal will notice it. I will not take any responsibility if your Paypal
account has been frozen.

Get a Debit Card
After you buy a debit card you can fund your debit card directly using your Paypal
account. But I think you need to activate your debit card first  (The debit card seller
will tell you how). What you need to do after activating the debit card in order to
withdraw your Paypal fund is log in to your Paypal account → click withdraw → click
“transfer fund to your bank account. The more detail step I will explain later. Please
continue reading. The following is a list of debit card that you can use to withdraw your
Paypal fund.
   1. Accent Card Visa
   2. Virtual Money

                                           - 15 -
Below is comparison for card fees and price. Please choose the one you think is most
   1. Accent Card Visa
      This card price is USD 50. Huh…quite expensive right? About other fees like
      activation fees, monthly fees, withdrawal fees and bla...bla...bla...please see table
      below. More info and apply, please visit Accent Card Visa.

                                       - 16 -
   2. Virtual Money – Thanks to for this info
       According to HongKiat, this card sold for USD 25.00. Cheaper than Accent Visa
       right? Also for another fees like bla…bla…bla… see table below. And I suggest
       you to read HongKiat post for more detailed about this card.

Open a US Bank Account
At the time when I’m writing this e-book, there are only two US bank I know where you
can apply for a US Bank Account.

E*Trade Financial
I have been using E*trade brokerage account to withdraw my Paypal account for more
than 6 months and there are no problems. The benefit of E*Trade brokerage account is:
    Fast, easy and free to open.
    FREE VISA Platinum ATM Debit Card.
    You can get a VISA debit card without deposit USD 1000.
    You can write checks.
    Work with Paypal, stormpay, moneybooker, 2Checkout, etc.
    Simple process. Need photocopy of your passport or government-issued
       identification card.

                                         - 17 -
    Has online banking system.
E*trade account is free to apply. ATM withdrawal is also free. E*trade and the ATM will
not charge you when withdrawing funds. If the ATM charges you, E*trade will provide a
refund to your account. There is Account Service Fee (ASF) that will be charged
quarterly, USD 40 per quarter. That means you will be charged USD 40x4=USD 160 per
year. But for the first year, you will not be charged. 2        year and onward you will be
charged. Unless you meet one of E*trade condition, you will not be charged. For more
information, please visit
Where to apply and how to apply? I have put the form and the guide how to fill in the
form in the folder name etrade. Check it out.

The second bank I know that allows non citizen to open US Bank Account. Yeah, the
most famous bank right. For HSBC you need to email them and ask them how you can
open    an    account    with     them.    Here’s    the        link   to   contact   HSBC
language=en-us . After that they will email you with some questions. Answer the
questions honestly. If they are satisfied with your answers, they will send the kit to you.
After you get the kit, fill in the form and go to HSBC branch in your country, like me in
Malaysia, I must go to a HSBC branch in Malaysia for verification purposes. After that,
mail the form back with document they need to HSBC US. Walla…done. You can get
HSBC debit card and you can use HSBC debit card to withdraw your money in almost
any ATM in the world. Cool right.

Frequently Ask Question (FAQ)
  1. To withdraw Paypal fund, can I just use debit card that I have in my country
     like me in Malaysia I have Public Bank Debit card?
     No, in order to withdraw Paypal fund for most international country you need
     debit card that is integrated with US bank account. We need ABA routing

   Yes, you can.
4. I have added credit/debit card in order to verify my Paypal. After that

   printed on your bank account statement next to the charge.

   debit card. Honestly I don’t have that much of money. Is there any way?
   I cannot confirm this info yet. But when I get the e*trade account, I just fund it
   using Paypal USD 5.00 and then I email them ask to send me a check and debit
   card. One moth later I get the debit card and check book. That all.
