Why does myLot say Paypal isn't available in some countries.

Before I signed up on here, I went over the list of countries that myLot said were not eligible to be paid from here. Iceland was not on the list. In my profile section, they say Paypal is not available in my country. I have been using Paypal for years and it's no problem to open up a paypal account from Iceland. Not that it matters as I'm not going to claim any payments from here, just curious as always.

It could be that the statement was written before Paypal became available in Iceland, or simply that Iceland does not have it's own Paypal website. When I first opened my Paypal account I had to use paypal.com and open an account in US$ because there was no United Kingdom option. My account was automatically transferred to paypal.co.uk as soon as a branch was opened here, although I still use dollars because it is a convenient online currency. There are still a lot of countries that cannot use Paypal for various reasons, but many like your own can simply enrol via the United States. Are you using paypal.com and US Dollars?

I have both an UK and an US account. Not all countries have a specil Paypal website and the Paypal.com website has been enough for me until now.

I just checked the paypal website. It clearly state that Icelanders can send, receive and withdraw money to a US bank account.

Where are you from? Is your country listed as one of the countries that myLot will not pay?

Definitely not for the money. I am waiting for myLot to respond to me about weather I can donate my earnings here directly to charity. The paypal question was just out of curiousity since they say it's not available and I alreaday have an account with them.
