Maybank Rejects PayPal Funds Withdrawal to Visa Debit Card

Maybank Visa Debit CardNot all credit or debit card issuers will allow PayPal funds withdrawal to their credit or debit cards. The newly launched Visa Debit card by Maybank is of no exception. Maybank as the card issuer has not allowed this activity.

When we tried to add this Visa Debit card for PayPal funds withdrawal, the following error message is displayed:

This credit card has been denied by the bank that issued your credit card. For details on why your card was denied, please contact your credit card issuer’s customer service department. Or, you may want to try adding a different credit card.

Even their customer service department does not seem to know what PayPal is!

    under “Debit card history” i never see anything maybe need to maybank to update.

    so now im waiting to get the codes from paypal and later on the refund.

    lets wait n see how the process goes,hope everything fine…i will update once i got the feedback.

  3. Hi spawnkumar. Looks like your card is working well. Congratulations!

  4. @spawnkumar
    yes. its takes maybank at least1 day before u can see any transaction in ur debit history as a pre-auth payment… later a few days, maybank will credit the preauth and finally charge the actual and final amount

  5. hi malcom & raki thanks for the reply……

    so i have done MSOS process in maybank2u then linked the card at paypal at last verified the card with 4digit codes i received from paypal to maybank2u.

    18-Oct-2009 REV PREAUTH XXXXPAYPAL–*EXPUSE DATED 15/10/09 US$1.95 RM6.71
    18-Oct-2009 SALE XXXXPAYPAL–*EXPUSE DATED 15/10/09 US$1.95 RM6.60

    15-Oct-2009 PREAUTH SALE PAYPAL DATED 15/10/09 US$1.00 RM1.02

    So above was the “Debit card history” transaction that took part during the verification…
    So now the debitcard is ready to use…
    In my paypal account i can see… PayPal balance: $1.95 USD

    so now if i purchase any stuffs online and want to do payment via paypal…. how the transactions will be…
    Do i need insufficent balance in my paypal account to buy things ?
    If it is how should i increase the fund in my paypal account so i can do payment ?
    Or is it directly get deducted from my debitcard account ?

    Please explain to me the process of buy things and do payment via MAYBANK VISA DEBITCARD…..

  6. Hi spawnkumar. If your current balance is not enough for a payment/purchase, PayPal will charge the remaining amount to your card.

    When you buy things online using PayPal, you will just be required to enter your username and password of your PayPal account on PayPal’s site (not any other page).

  7. Hi~~i have a question to ask you guys~
    i’ve already linked my Maybank Visa Debit Card to my paypal account but why can’t i make any payment???
    when i tried sending money, this msg popped up “Sorry, your payment won’t go through. To make it work, you’ll need to add money to your account and pay with your PayPal balance”…my paypal balance is 0.00 when there’s money in my debit card~~please help me..T-T…

  8. hi, one ques…i’ve already linked my Maybank Visa Debit Card to my paypal acc but why isn’t there any money in my paypal balance???

    in short, how do i transfer money from my maybank visa debit card to my paypal acc??? do i need the TAC code??

  9. Hi Emily. Many people are also facing the same technical problem in the past month making payment via PayPal with their Maybank Visa Debit card attached.

    Even requesting the other party to request funds from your account also does not work.

    My temporary solution was I used my other debit card with Public Bank Visa Electron. Apologies. I can’t help much when there is a technical problem between Maybank and PayPal. Your settings and verification are all fine.

  10. Emily, I have the same experience like you, getting the same error message “Sorry, your payment won’t go through. To make it work, you’ll need to add money to your account and pay with your PayPal balance”

    Then I playing around with the send money, I try change the send money currency from US Dollar to Malaysian Ringgit and now it came out another different error message “You may not use your existing credit cards to fund this payment. Please add a different type of card or use a bank account.”

    From what I know for Malaysian PayPal account, you can’t add/retrieve fund from your debit card into your paypal account, the only way u can get fund into your paypal account is from someone who sent you money with their paypal account.

    You can’t transfer fund from your debit card into your paypal account, u can just send money out and your debit card will automatically be deducted, but now the problem we both facing right now is the error message appeared, sighs….!

  11. so it seems we having issue now to do payment via paypal account using maybank visa debitcard……..
    is it happening only for maybank debitcard?
    maybe i should have just applied for public bank visa electron debitcard………..

  12. guys, actually u can withdraw paypal money to your maybank visa.
    what u need to do is just activate the visa card for online transation b4 using it. here’s da step.

    Maybank website.

  13. Hi Alan. If you are not aware, I have written a blog post on it in July 2009. You can read up on PayPal funds withdrawal to Maybank Visa Debit card here. Apparently, this card is quite problematic for withdrawal from time to time.

    Also, I have written about withdrawal of PayPal funds to our local banks in Malaysia. You can read more here.

  14. […] this new Maybank Visa Debit card does not support online services and PayPal withdrawal… yet. I’ve heard that they are planning to introduce the feature somewhere in June but […]
