PayPal - Help me!

November 15, 2006 6:51am CST
I have opened an account with Paypal. How do I activate it? Can I ask Mylot to transfer my earnings to my Paypal account without first crediting my Paypal account? I am Indian. I have a bank Ac. But I am yet to receive a Debit Card/ATM card. Will that suffice to credit/debit funds to Paypal? I dont have a Visacard or Mastercard or any other highfly cards! Please advise.

Please go to and check all FAQs. You will understand. 1. If you have already opened a premier account, there is no need to activate it. 2. Bank account is of no use, because they transfer if there is $150 and above only. They charge $5 for transfer through cheque. 3. You can use this mylot money to pay for (a) upfront fee for some site (b)to pay for purchased made by you at leading stores in US 4. You can transfer this fund to any other paypal account holder (do not send any email to paypal; you have to do with website only). Send an email to recipient (your friend/relative in US) and you can collect cash from their family members here.) 5. I do not think for doing all, you require credit card. 6. Credit card is required for verification of your account and they charge 1.95$ for this. But this amount they reimburse once you carry on some transaction. Hope this answer is quite useful.

ssh, actually I have not opted for a paypal premier, only ordinary 'paypal' account, which I opened it last month. since then I have been in a dilemma whether to ask mylot to credit my paypal account(sending my paypal email address, paypal ID). Should I ask mylot to do so, in December? Thanks for the information! youve given me confidence. Still, pl. answer the above one question!

Well I think paypal will sent you an activation email and in the verify section you can enter your bank account # and adress and name of your bank...I think that should work!!!
