    * *** Finally!!! *** Bashar now accepts PayPal for his country!

    Do you remember Bashar's signature? "I CAN'T ACCEPT PAYPAL FOR KUWAIT!!! "

    It was really boring me. I didn't know why. Now he accepts PAYPAL and my day started with a good news. I am happy now. Am I a WHT-addict, stupid or a moron? lol but this is not a lie, I am really happy now

    His signature changed as "May 16th is a change i have PAYPAL NOW! "

    Congrats Bashar!

    Congrats Bashar.

    I know it was frustrating not being able to use the service before.

    You will find some people that complain about PayPal, as with any company with that many users, but the fact is they are a great service, easy to use, convenient and safe. The vast majority of their customers are completely happy and never have any serious problems. After 3 years and hundreds of transactions, I've never had a single problem with them. I can't say that about many other companies/services.

    OT: List some? PayPal isn't perfect, but they've basically cornered the market so there's not too much one can do.

    to add on.. Name a company and/or product that is perfect.

    Really?

    Wow! Let me check the country list at their website... no Kuwait yet. ?
    Hmmm... Do they have the updated list?

    And I noticed that Philippines is not yet listed. If only Paypal realizes the potential for making it available in the Philippines. We have a lot of Overseas Filipino Workers sending money home via Western Union or wire transfer!

    Paypal people, maybe it is high time that you should consider opening door to Philippines?

    Take care everyone!

    So where is Bashar in this thread???

    Perhaps he is busy taking care of all the new PP orders he's receiving?

    PayPal may have it's share of problems, however, if you keep your account in good standing, and know exactly who you're doing business with, and do consistent business with them, you shouldn't experience any problems.

    This year will mark my fourth year using PayPal, and knock on wood, I've yet to have any problems with them... then again, I constantly have funds in my account and don't submit too many inquiries to them, utilize the tools they give me for help, etc.

    Maybe I'm just one of the lucky few that is on their good side. ::chuckles::

    [Edit] Congrats, Bashar! Now you can move up to the minor leagues! KIDDING!

    You cant verify an Indian bank account either. In fact it can be the best method of cashless transaction for small amounts within India avoiding crowds in banks and atms.

    How did this happen, last time i checked there wasn't any Arab, or African country?!!

    i think countires like UAE, Pakistan and, Moroco should be added, i don't see any good point in leaving them out of the list, this is just MO .

    3- got a Internet Visa on that bank account and my uk address
    4- i have a UK box so i used to to proxy from it to reach paypal.co.uk

    Yup. In most cases, there are really clients who use Paypal instead of credit card payment. So, it was a strategic move Bashar.

    And by the way, we have our Paypal too! Thanks to Chris of Web Definity.

    hi bashar,

    does paypal allows you to do that? getting account from supported country but lived in non supported country?

    i think ill follow what you did

    thanks

  35. #35
    newk,

    Hi! I think there is nothing wrong with it. In the first place we are not logging in to the account per se. And it is our partner's account, not ours. So basically, it is not a violation.

    Take care!
