I was wondering how to transfer money from my bank account to my paypal account? I tried surfing both sites to see if I can figure out how and cannot figure it out. Or is there another way to put money into my paypal account? Thanks

You need to be sure that your account is linked to Paypal. I think it needs to be the primary account link in Paypal but am not sure. Anyway once the link is there and verified by Paypal it's just a simple transfer (add funds) through your Paypal account. Takes a few days sometimes, but it works fine. Everything is done through the Paypal account, not the bank account. Withdrawls from Paypal to bank account work the same way (in reverse.)

Glad to know that you have found out the way of transferring the fund from Paypal to your bank account. In your country, it's very convenient, the Paypal transfer to and fro U.S. bank account is free of charge I have an account in one of the credit union over there too. I have been using Paypal since 2002. During that time, they were giving $5 for new comer! So far, I feel that their service is great and it help makes online trading viable.
