India

Hi friend I was having problem using my entropay virtual visa card . So on advice of a myLotter I attached my card to my paypal account . I tried to send the amount to my mom's paypal so that it could be transferred to her bank account . Paypal didn't allow me to transfer as we are both from India . It said that paypal is for international transaction and no transaction is allowed within the same nation . It was quite a justified view . So now I send my fund to a trustworthy friend living in the U.K . Now she has been told that you are not allowed to send fund to India . She too tried to send to my mother's verified paypal account . I am in a great fix now . I simply don't know how to get back my money . Could someone here please help me solve my problem . I am still awaiting the response of paypal help centre . Thanks in advance .

PayPal has specific rules for India : I have no problem here to send money to another PayPal account in my country and it is why I prefer to do when I buy something on Ebay. Only somebody with a PayPal business account can send money to India, and that it is impossible for a personal account like mine -- and probably the account of your friend in UK --. The problem is not due to PayPal but to the Reserve Bank of India that imposed a lot of restrictions to PP and to Indian citizens -- by example an Indian merchant cannot buy for more than $500 with PP --.

i am surprised to hear some of the comments here. i have a client in u.k and i get paid without any issues. This is the first i am hearing of it. If you have an Indian paypal account you can still make payments either within the country or internationally if you send it using a credit card attached to the paypal account.

I have my visa card attached to my paypal account but when I wanted to send a certain amount to my mom's paypal account it said transaction within India not allowed . How did you send it ? Was it as a goods payment or as a service . Please let me know more on this . Thanks a lot for your response .

I did not send it one of my friends did it with a credit card. Do you have a visa credit card or debit card? You will need a credit card to send money. Also you cannot send personal payment. Did you try to make a personal payment?

Paypal always responds to queries: They will get back to you.

That is a problem in India, my friend. They will not accept paypal and I think the government should look into that problem why they are not bother about? Paypal is a good income for the government if they allow it

Paypal asks your PAN details and your bank details.after that only it allow you to make transation.From india you will only receive money below $500 and you are not allowed to pay via paypal using your bank a/c.
