I have been using Paypal to accept payments for a while. Till now i havent withdrawn money from my paypal account. Now i need money , so i want to withdraw.
I have been told by some friends that there is no good route of withdrawing paypal funds to India. one told requesting paypal checks are time consuming and no guarentee that they reach us . another told me to use Cash2india.com .
I assume there are a quite a number of Indian designers here.
Can you friends please guide me the proper , safe route of getting my money ?
I would be grateful .
I will advice you to withdraw funds directly, by requesting a cheque. If you have registered proper address with paypal, chances of losing it are minimal.
Then if you are in a city where you have CitiBank branch, it will be treated as local and will clear in three days time, but if you do not have CitiBank in your city it may take more days tha depends upon your local bank to clear outsation cheque.
We use xoom.com to transfer money from the US to India. However, their fees are getting rediculously expensive. But, they are fast. I can send money using xoom and it's deposited in the account in India in about 24-48 hours.
