How to check if your credit card accepts PayPal withdrawals

Following up to my previous post, several people in Gaman’s site commented and wondered whether their card accepts withdrawals.

Here’s an easy way to find out (click on the images to enlarge):

1. Log into PayPal, and in your My Account dashboard click on Edit Profile.

1. Log into PayPal, and click on Edit Profile.

2. In the Financial Information column, click Credit/Debit Cards.

2. In the Financial Information column, click ‘Credit Cards’.

3. You should see the Status in the right column. If your card accepts withdrawals, it should say so as in the screen shot below for my Citibank Visa.

3. The status will show if your card is eligible.

I got the instructions in eBay. You should read it to find out more about this cool feature. Like I said, you stand a better chance using a Visa or Visa Electron card for withdrawals, no matter what PayPal states in the site. When I was in the States, my senior in college once mentioned that 70% of credit card holders in the States use VISA, while 70% of credit card holders in other parts of the world use MasterCard — I have no stats to prove that, but it never hurts to be safe 🙂

  1. Cool, thanks! I’ve always found Paypal’s navigation extremely annoying.

    It’s amazing how bad paypal’s navigation is despite being such a large website.

    Good point. I’m new and I have some trouble with payments. After 3 days I figured out that you MUST have a CLEAN 0.00 balance to pay with cards.
