Today morning when I saw an update on Paypal blog about current situation of Paypal in India, I was hoping to hear some good news from them. But it seems we need to wait for a while for some good news like resuming PayPal bank withdrawal.
According to latest blog post by Farhad Irani, who lead the PayPal Business in Asia pacific, mentioned :
It has always been possible for sellers to request a check or withdraw funds to a credit card, and these options are still available from the Withdraw Money tab of your PayPal account. If you don’t have a credit card attached to your PayPal account now, you can add one under the Profile section of your PayPal account. Before asking for a credit card withdrawal, please check with your card issuing bank to ensure that they can process it.
It usually takes five to seven working days for you to receive a check when you request a check withdrawal and PayPal normally charges a five USD fee. We are trying our best to help sellers during this difficult time and therefore will refund the check withdrawal fee back to your PayPal account within a week. I appreciate that this is not ideal, but please bear with us.
Seems like Paypal is working closely with reserve bank of India, to work out this issue. Meanwhile I just requested 1000$ using Xoom service and I believe it will take 24-48 hours to receive that money into my local bank account. If this work out well, I will write a post about the same on How you can withdraw money from paypal to bank account using Xoom.
