  1. Hi Phoon. I don’t think you are allowed to withdraw funds from your UK PayPal account to your Malaysian bank account.

    You can create another PayPal account with the country Malaysia and send the funds to this new account as “Personal Payment”.

    You are only allowed to have 2 PayPal account where 1 is a Personal account and another can be either a Premier or Business account.

  2. Hi Malcolm,

    You are a genius!

    Thank you so much for the help.

    Keep it up with the site.

    Cheers! :)

  3. can any one tell me what is maybank MEPS Bank Routing Code/?

  4. Hi Lucas. Maybank is “MALAYAN BANKING BERHAD”. Please refer to the list above.

  5. Thank Malcolm:)

  6. Malcolm,

    I was reading on pros and cons accounts of PayPal. And one of the things that really made me worry was the ability of PayPal to take money out from our bank account. The complaints i read was mostly from US. Can that happen to Malaysian bank accounts though?

    How safe is it to have our debit card linked to PayPal?

    =========
    Malcolm:

    Hi Xdaliv. This only happens when someone uses your PayPal account and make payment. PayPal does not withdraw money from your bank account.

  7. Hi malcolm,

    i have an uk paypal account during my year in uk.
    now im back in Malaysia, i wasnt allow to add a malaysian bank account, what should i do?

    thank you very much.

  8. Hi Min Tien. You need to register a new PayPal account with the country set to Malaysia during registration.

    Each person can only have a maximum of 2 PayPal accounts at any one time.

    One can be a PayPal Personal account, another can be a Premier or Business account.

  9. hi malcom.. how about Alertpay? why when i put my account bank details, it always shows that my account invalid. i use my maybank account

  10. Hi Syahidah. I don’t have experience with Alertpay. This post is not related to Alertpay as well.

  12. hi malcom..my full name is Mohd sahril Bin Hasan.can you help me which 1 is a 1st,middle and last name? i want to fill a paypal ac.

  13. Hi Sahril.

    Your last name will be “Bin Hassan”.
    First name will be “Mohd Sahril”.

    Don’t need to fill up middle name.

  14. Hi Malcom, im confused about this *Please ensure that the name you provide matches the name on your bank account*.

    My bank account name: Gavyn(me) M.(dad) David
    (grandfater). The ‘M.’ stands for Marty(dad)
    So when i fill in the surname part, should i put ‘M.’, ‘Marty’ or “M. David”?

  15. Hi Gavyn. Before I answer your question, which country are you from?

    If the country of your PayPal account is the US, M. will be your middle name.

  16. No, I’m not from the US. I’m from Malaysia.

  17. how can i reload my paypal if i dont have a credit card can i use my maybank transfer money to paypal?

    ==========
    Malcolm:
    Hi Gary. No. You can’t load funds from Malaysian bank account to your PayPal account. You should add a Visa or MasterCard to your PayPal account as a funding source.

  18. Hi,
    I’m thinking about getting a paypal account. What if I don’t use a credit card? Do I register a bank account and whenever I buy an item, it will deduct from my bank account? Or do I have to transfer money into the paypal account first and then start buying items with the money in the paypal account?

    Sorry..

    Kinda new in this

    ==========
    Malcolm:
    I recommend you to use a Maybank Visa Debit card which is tied to your Maybank bank account and add this card to PayPal. This will be your funding source in PayPal and your money will be deducted directly from your bank account via your Visa Debit card whenever you make payment via PayPal.

  19. hi im reesh here…i want to purchase something from ebay..how do i pay via paypal when i cant transfer money from my bank account to the paypal account?

    Malcolm:
    I recommend you to use a Maybank Visa Debit card which is tied to your Maybank bank account and add this card to PayPal. This will be your funding source in PayPal and your money will be deducted directly from your bank account via your Visa Debit card whenever you make payment via PayPal.

  20. Hi Gavyn. Apologies. It has been awhile since I blog.

    For the surname, you can use M. David since M. David is in the bank account and not Marty David.

  21. Hi Malcolm,
    I have Maybank account, I want to withdraw money from Paypal. I would like to verify below question:
    1. i can withdraw money directly from Paypal to my Maybank account (and any local back account)? If not, how?

    Thank you.

    ==========
    Malcolm:
    You can withdraw PayPal funds to most local banks in Malaysia. Did I answer your question?

  22. Hi Malcolm,
    I haven’t open Paypal account,
    1. personal account – can send & receive money ?
    2. premier account – can send & receive money ?
    3. What is the different between personal/premier account ?

    ==================
    Malcolm:
    If you are going to accept payment but not under a company name, sign up for a Premier Account to enjoy better transaction rates. If you are going to use PayuPal just to send money, a Personal account will do.

    Malcolm:

    Hi cristal. You do your research online on selling on eBay or opening an online store. I can’t be giving free advice on online selling as that is my bread and butter.

  28. Hi Matt18…. Next to the textbox to enter the MEPS bank routing code, click on the “details” link for MEPS routing codes.

    In your PayPal account, go to “Profiles” –> “Account Information” –> “Close Account” to close your PayPal account.
