How long does Al Rajhi Bank takes to clear our PayPal withdrawal?

The answer is between 2 days to 2 weeks.

And the weirdest thing is when it has been delayed, all you need to ‘unplug the delay’ is to make another withdrawal. It has happened to me twice. When I am tired of waiting, I just withdraw another batch of money and the ‘clogged’ up money will come through. I tried it once with USD20 and sure enough, two USD100 withdrawals went through with the USD20.

The above are part of my withdrawals and you can see how some withdrawals take 14 days while some just take 2 days. There isn’t a standard time frame. Because of that, I still opt for my ‘next business day’ clearance through a friend at beginning of the month when I get the lump sum payment from TLA, RM, Linkworth and etc. Paying USD5 per day is not only troublesome but damn tiring.

As for the exchange rates, for USD495 which is the maximum limit I can withdraw per day, I get between RM1,613 and RM1,640. That means the exchange rate is between 3.25 to 3.31. Whatever happened to the good old days when I can get RM380 for every USD100 when I was making money with Google Adsense.

    This site is not working correctly. The site bar on the left hand site block some of the text. I’m using firebox.

    I think they credit your account manually and sometime they missed it, so when you have another transaction they found the last transaction and complete it

    If that so, you can call them to speed up the withdrawal time

    *This is just my personal opinion and it is probably wrong

    Dear Lilian..

    Check this out:
    “With regards to your email , your Al Rajhi Debit-ATM Card- i, is a worldwide access card to your bank account through the Visa Network. You can use your card to pay for purchases, shopping, and bills as well as withdraw cash at ATMs. Whenever you see the Visa or Visa Plus sign, you can use your Al Rajhi Debit Card – i.

For added security, your Al Rajhi Debit Card – i , will allows Internet transactions if CVV code is provided .However ,our Debit Card-I cant be used for any Pay Pal transactions for security purpose.”

    I have a few questions for you.

    Do you have any problems with Al Rajhi at the moment?

    I’m also sure that you have enrolled in PayPal’s Expanded Use Program. Did you get your PayPal account verified on Al Rajhi’s debit card or on some other cards?

    If you successfully verified your PayPal account with Al Rajhi’s debit card, how much did you put in as your savings deposit? The minimum $20 or did you put in more?

    I’m asking the above questions because I’m having problems with Al Rajhi at the moment. Thanks and really hope that you could provide me with some answers.
