    and one more thing. If i want to transfer money from paypal to maybank acc how long will it takes to process? and is it complicated?

  7. Hi Malcolm,

    My Paypal and Maybank Debit card was going fine, I made a few Payments using my paypal, etc.

    Today I tried to pay but this message came up : Your card issuer denied this payment. If you have another debit or credit card linked to your PayPal account, please use that. Or take a moment to link a new debit or credit card. Contact your card issuer if you don’t know why you were declined.

    Everything was ok, my card has been accepted, I have made payments through Paypal before, and my account is verified. Why is this happening now? I never had this problem.

    I really need help! I need to make an urgent payment!


  8. Hi Zack32. You can sign up for a Premier account. Signing up for Premier account is free. If you are referring to transaction fees, log into your PayPal account and click on the “Fees” link at the bottom.

    Withdrawing funds to your Maybank account is simple. Withdrawing to your bank account in Malaysia takes 2 to 3 business days.

  9. Hi Neems. You probably have to increase your limit. Please read this article.

  18. Hi Aiman.
    Check your PDF statement.

  19. Hi Malcom. Your blog is the most helpful blog ever regarding online money transaction. This is very crucial to me, since I’m goona do an online business. I only have three questions;

    1. Can I RECEIVE payment just using my maybank debit card?
    Can the money I receive money goes to my debit card? Or do I have to insert in my bank account in paypal in order for me to receive payments? Or is it depends on the guy who is paying me???

    2. Is it hard to link bank account to paypal account? What are the procedure to do it? Please, I want to know.

    3. Regarding the problem with name on card, since I’m an indian, my account will have “A/L” in my name, will this affect my paypal transaction? Because I can’t insert that in my paypal. Paypal only has column for first and last name.

    Thank you in advance Malcom!

  20. Hi Jeevan..
    Obviously you can publish you Maybank bank account details for others to bank in if you don’t want to use PayPal. If you are going to use this method, you will not be able to accept credit card payments or from any PayPal accounts.

    2. It is not hard to link a bank account to a PayPal account. You can read my blog post here.

    3. Your “A/L” can be part of your last name.

  21. I got my maybank visa, and from reading the comments on your blog, I found out that is best to close your account and create a new since your old account that has lot of problem will be paypal watchful eye as a “trouble-maker”. So I did that, and link my maybank visa, and voila, IS VERIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOT! My research was right, Maybank visa debit card is the BEST malaysian bank to make online transaction!!! Trust me, Maybank is the best way. Don’t try others, they have problems and not sophisticated as maybank. Maybank is like DESIGNED for online. Check their websites, they even have a special security feature for online transaction. And their website is like almost literally connected to paypal with the paypal verification code coming to maybank2u.

    I say again, Maybank is the best for online. Hong Leong was the worst for me. I now have no limitation, and just made 47 USD transaction! Buyoh~

  22. wow. so useful, i just done mine! thanks.

  23. hi Malcolm,
    i’ve read all the comment here, i can’t get the answer.

    I’ve successful link my Maybank Debit Card to Paypal using all your guide.i got the code in debit card history, ive add debit card in Paypal, and all is successfully done.

  24. hi there malcom,

    i just got my maybank debit card. i already have a paypal account but not yet link any debit card or account. so i was trying to link it with my debit card and i keep on getting the error “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.” at first i thought maybe i didnt put my full name so i close the paypal account and created a new one but still it giving the error. tried so many times already. is there any missing steps i should do first? really need help as i am dying to buy stuffs on ebay.

    thanks in advance

  25. Hi Hiro / ultimetnewgenius. Have you done this?

  26. ive already solve the problem!


  27. solve my problem thank you very much malcolm

  28. hi.. I already have paypal account using my visa/debit maybank card.. so, why when i want to add a bank account maybank they deny it and display

    “That bank account is already assigned to another PayPal account. For security purposes, each bank account may only be assigned to one PayPal account. Please use a different bank account.”

    please help me…TQ.

  29. Hi Lee. Then you have to remove this card from the other PayPal account.

  30. hi malcolm. can u help?
    i cant find the Maybankcard Secure Online Shopping Registration anywhere in my page. there is the Utilities section but no link of MSOS. i only saw the ‘tac info’ and the ‘cancel atm card’ links. i’ve logged in and out so many times. its so frustrating!

    It is no longer there. When you make payment online using your credit card, the code will be sent to your mobile via SMS just like the TAC of Maybank2u.

  31. Bro, how do i get my maybank credit card statement for the paypal activation? Online does not show it. Any idea?

    You can get your PDF statement in your Maybank2u account.

  32. How much the fee charged to my Maybank debit card when buying online using Paypal? Let say I want to buy a $10 product + free shipping. How much is the total I have to pay?

    Free. If the currency is not RM, then there will be currency conversions.

  33. Hi Malcolm. Good post here. How long does it take for paypal to send the 4 digit number to my Maybank statement? I email Maybank and they said now we do not have to register MSOS online and there is no MSOS registration button on my Utilities section. Thank you.

    MSOS is no longer in Maybank2u. My post is out of date. You can check the 4-digit in your Maybank2u card statement or Transaction history.

  34. Hi Malcolm, my question is, Is it posibble to link an maybank account which is my account, but i want to link my mothers citibank credit card number which has no connection between those two things. does paypal requir same credit card for same account ?

    I highly don’t recommend you use your mother’s credit card number although I think you can. Get a Visa or MasterCard debit card.

  35. in my case…

    when trying to link my debit card with paypal …
    ERROR… this credit card has been denied..

    called Service Centre already..
    they said my maybank account was not active…
    there was no withdrawal for more than one year.. (which is true) even though there was some amount transfered into my account but there was no withdrawal…

    i have not yet tried it…
    i will update as soon as possible when i’ve succeeded…
