Otherwise, if the reciever has an account with an international card, you can send and the person can recieve on the card and go to any ATM or bank and take the funds out.
Chris said:No, not a credit card, a debit card, a paypal debit card. For setting up a paypal account, yes, you need a credit card. But for drawing money from your paypal account through an ATM, Paypal issues their own debit card... Mastercard Paypal Debit card.
Added - you can be linked to a major credit card with your paypal account and can transfer funds in your paypal account to your credit card. You can also be linked to a stateside bank (perhaps other countries as well) and transfer funds from your paypal account to your bank account.
Added again as I?ve forgotten the process - its been a long time.... I think you can open a Paypal account without a major credit card, but then you have to have a bank account. This is US procedures, other countries may have different procedures.
carina said:My guess is if it would work to send someone money thru Pay Pal, that is just a local citizen with a local bankaccount or local cc, then it would be used instead of the so so expensive WU etc.
Chris said:I think it has been clearly established that this will not work. Paypal does not do business in RD$.
