Paypal Verification using Credit Card Issued by Indonesian Bank
Many has told that credit cards issued by Indonesian Banks are not able to be used to verify Paypal account. This is not true anymore, at least for credit cards issued in Indonesia by two banks as I described below.
Last week I talked to my friend, and our conversation lead us to online payment method, and he said that he could use his Credit Card from Niaga Bank to verify his Paypal account.
Later on I also open a Paypal account and use my Citibank Credit Card for verification.
The verification methods is as follow: Paypal will charge for USD 1.95 , and provide 4 digits unique number in their billing statement to us. This 4 digits number then be used to verify our Paypal account. After successful verification, Paypal will return back our money.
In a couple days I received the billing statement from Paypal in my credit card account (I check using Internet Banking facility), then I go to my account on Paypal insert the 4 digits unique number there, and instantly I become a verified Paypal user with personal account type.
After a few days, when I login to Paypal, I see that I received bonus of USD 1.95 from Paypal. This nominal resides on my Paypal fund. Looks like that is how they return back the charge 🙂
To withdraw money from your Paypal personal account there are two ways; withdraw to your credit card account or withdraw to your Bank account. If you want to withdraw to your Indonesian credit cards, there is a USD 5 costs. You could also set up your bank account as your withdrawal destination. If you withdraw for amount of more than Rp.1.500.000 there is no withdrawal costs.
