Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

Hi thisisit,

 

It is not advised to have two PayPal accounts in different countries. Your PayPal account should be open in your country of residence. If you live in Spain then you should only have a Spanish PayPal account with Spanish financial information. The same applies for UK accounts were you can only add UK financial information.

 

This is designed as a security measures to protect all of our members.

 

May I suggest that you only use the account for the country you are resident in.

 

I hope this helps

Paula

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

Hi, I have a similar problem in that I've moved to another country. I can't put my new address nor new cards into my UK acccount (obviously) but I also cannot create a new account as it says I already have an account with the email.

 

I do not wish to get another email address.

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

Hi there JohnW1969,

 

You would have to have another email address to proceed, even if it is only temporarily :smileyhappy:

 

Ideally, you could remove the current email address from your UK account but in order to do this you have to have another email address added and made primary on your UK account first. So you could add a new email address to your UK account and make it your primary, this will allow you to have your current email address on whatever account you wish.

 

I hope this information helps you

Wayne

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

Hi,

 

I have changed countries of residence 4 times now, having created bank accounts in each country I have lived on. 

Do you mean to say that Paypal expects me to create and use four different email addresses and paypal accounts?

 

Also, what do you mean I have to have "one country of residence only"?

I can have whatever the number of residences I want a the same time, even if only for working and living!

I can even have two nationalities, for god's sake!

 

This is a matter where Paypal policy is going against the users' reality.
A LOT of people have bank accounts in more than one country.

In today's world, where more and more people work and live in diferent countries (or travel a lot for a living), this limitation makes it dificult for whoever wants to pay using paypal in their local currency accounts.

 

Is Paypal thinking of their currency exchange fees business when imposing this restriction?

I.e. this way people that can't use their local accounts to pay with paypal see themselves obligated to pay exchange fees in order to use Paypal.

 

By the way, calling this a "security" measure is just a poor excuse for Paypal limitations...

E.g.: offering the workaround of creating another email/account when someone moves countries (as I have seen moderators suggest in this forum) simply defeats the purpose of paypal's policy.

 

Thank you,

RV

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

hi there,

 

i have a similar issue. i send money abroad (slovakia) every month and its costing me £20 each month via bank.

i have a bank account in uk and one in slovakia, where i send the money. and i was wondering, if its possible to send money from my uk account and withdraw with my slovakian account. it would save me a lot of effort and money. i was looking for the prices for withdrawing money in slovakia but i couldn't find it.

 

thank you very much

 

jake

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

Hi jerrycho85,

 

I would suggest that you firstly open a PayPal account in Slovakia. Once you have your account opened I would suggest that you add your Slovak bank account to it.

 

When you are withdrawing funds there is a minimum withdrawal limit of €10.00euro per withdrawal. Also fees differ depending on whether you are withdrawing to bank account or a card( only for certain accounts) so I would suggest that you click on the fees link at the bottom of your Slovak account overview page. Finally the withdrawal timeframe for Slovakian withdrawals is 2-3 working days.

 

I hope this helps

Paula

Re: paypal account in 2 different countries??

I am resident in the UK and have a UK paypal and bank account. I spend almost half the year at my apartment in Spain. Is it possible to open a Spanish paypal account and link it to my Spanish bank account for any euro invoices etc?
