Wayne Liew pointed out to me Malaysiansâ€™ PayPal Dream Comes True and he heard it from Sweet Surrender Malaysians Can Withdraw Paypal Now! – Debit Card Version.
I immediately tried it with my UOB Mastercard but got a message that the card issuer bank (i.e. UOB) doesn’t allow it. Anyway, I have no intention of transferring my money to the credit card because LOL, that’s MY money. Credit cards are meant for me to spend and paid by the husband, doh!
So, I heard that Sweet Surrender managed to withdraw to a debit card :
We tested it with Jimmyâ€™s Alrajhi Bank debit card that he got from applying for their current account. For the time being, we will test with debit card, when this transaction is completed and make sure that we got our money, we will test it with credit card.
Now, I wonder…..
Can I find a local bank which issues me a debit card and I just sit back and keep withdrawing to that bank? I have no intention of using my PayPal money so my current ‘arrangements’ suits me well. Just keep stuffing the money in my bank. I have an account with CIMB and will ask them more about this when I get down to open another FD. :)
Anyone with more information, please share!
