Paypal for Students
June 9, 2008 3:52am CST
I just need your help guys. I am just a student. So my problem is that i don't have a bank account or credit card (i only have an extension my dad's credit card and he does not want me to use it on the net). Both moneybookers and paypal ask for credit card or bank account info. How can i get my money in any of the two said sites? I just created an account in paypal and moneybookers and both of them have no credit card info or bank account info. Please do help me guys.. Thanks a lot!

Well you just keep earning.You have not specified how old are you.I mean whether you are a minor or old enough to own your own a full time bank account.Credit card information is optional though.But once you become an account holder, you can get your fund transferred through electronic fund transfer.So, you must have understood by now that owning a bank account is a priority.

I am above the age requirement of this site, which i think is 16. But I still don't have any bank accounts in my name because I don't have a job and ergo, a source of income. So, if i reach my payout in mylot, it will still be sent to my paypal account even if i am still an unverified member? the earnings i have will accumulate but i can't use it in anyway unless i verify my account, is that what you mean?

you dont need a bank account or credit card to use paypal. I have had a paypal account for 2 years, and have never entered any account or credit card info. You can recieve money and send money without being verified. You can also pay online, and if you want you can withdraw money by check, though they charge $1.50 for each check you withdraw...

Where do you live? If you live in a country outside the US, most likely you need to verify a credit / debit card to send and receive payments through paypal. Here in my country, there's a so called "EON card", a debit card that can be used to verify your account in paypal.
