Sorry, This recipient can't accept payments right now

I'm unable to receive payments. When my friend from US tries to send, it says "Sorry, this recipient can't accept payments right now". I have entered my KYC details today and received a mail like "You can now receive payments into your PayPal account" but still I'm unable to send or receive payments.

In my case, as for now PayPal doesn't allow personal payments in India. So I switched to a business account and completed KYC. After doing so, I was able to accept payments from US as goods and services (There'll be transaction fee). I don't know about Malaysia but I suggest you to try business account. Hope PayPal will allow personal payments in future to all the countries.
