Hello! :::::::::: I'm just wondering if which one works better in Philippines, Moneybooker or Paypal. I did set up my payment account which is Moneybooker but i'm a bit hesistant about it since I addressed it here in Bahrain. I'm not sure if they have it here. So now, i'm thinking of joining Paypal for my payment account. But before doing that, I would like to seek any advice from you guys especially those who had received their payouts already. :::::::::: I'm thinking if addressing the payout to Philippines and not here in Bahrain and then i'll just get my payout whenever I go back to Philippines. Is that possible or allowed? Is there anybody here from General Santos City, Philippines?[i'm from there] which one works better there? moneybookers or paypal? :::::::::: You guys must be wondering if i'll be getting my first payout soon, well, I dunno really, 'coz I still have some few more cents to work on to...*smile* but i'm hoping i'll reached the 10 before this month ends. Thank you in advance for any useful information, tip or advice you guys will be sharing here. ciao!=)

i haven't heard of anyone using paypal in the philippines. i signed up for a moneybookers account myself and a bit hesitant at first. but since the first time, it only took three working days for me to receive my mylot pay-out from moneybookers to my local bank, i guess it works for me. i have a bpi account which i can monitor via the internet thru their online banking. it is so convenient for me coz it's easy to check if the moneybookers transfer is already deposited in my account. i think because moneybookers works international, it doesn't matter which country you are in as long as you can provide your local bank account in the philippines or even in bahrain. you just need the swift code of the bank and add it to your bank's info so you can make automatic transfer. however, if you want to access in peso, then you should be here in the philippines. :) goodluck to your pay-out. :)

Hello! Good thing I asked about it first before I signed up for a Paypal account, was really going to but postponed it thought better if I ask here in myLot those who have tried it. That's great that it's fast and easy to transfer your moneybooker funds to your bank account. I'll go for moneybooker then! *smile*. Thanks for the info, very helpful. Take care. ciao! =)

We use moneybookers here, it used to be e-gold but mylot changed it since US indicted e-gold for money laundering. Mylot took the services of moneybookers, to replace e-gold and for us filipinos to enjoy time more here. But I think you can transfer your earnings from paypal to moneybookers, am not that sure but that's what I heard!;)

You can ask mylot if paypal caters Bahrain, but if not, then I'm sure it's moneybookers!;) By the way, just type mylot_payments on the message tabs so you can receive a quick response from them.

I would choose Moneybookers because Paypal is not yet available in the Philippines. And also Moneybooker has better service than Paypal

Moneybookers allowed users to withdraw their balance to its respective bank accounts from throughout the world while Paypal is not, Only U.S.A. and Canadian residents can withdraw a money from their paypal account.

The Philippines is Send Only with respect to PayPal. Our country is not included in the list of countries which PayPal extend services in which people are able to receive from others using PayPal. I hope that in the near future they would also include the Philippines as we really need PayPal here to receive payments from the internet.
