Huh what kind of debit card do you have? By all rights it should work if it has visa/mastercard on it.

Re: debit card enquiry

Caveat emptor: There have been alot of complaints about paypal's service. Do yourself a favor and do some quick research on these.

If I am not wrong, they do not allow debit cards. Only credit cards.

Or you could set up a paypal account as the others have mentioned, and verify your account with an authentic personal banking mechant account (eg OCBC savings, UOB savings, etc) to remove your sending/withdrawal limits. Once this is completed, I believe there is no further need to attach a debit card to your paypal account.

Re: debit card enquiry

I think you ask at the wrong section. Anyway the fastest way is to call their phone banking to ask for details on how to do it.

They should be able to assist on this.

Uh I have been using a debit card (posb) for the past 4 years, I've bought stuff from amazon, japan, uk, us with absolutely no problems. So it definitely isn't a problem about debit cards as a whole.

You can use your debit card for paypal purchases as well? In that case I am terribly sorry for the misinformation.

Yeah, some US shops would only handle transactions through paypal, it was pretty troublesome though.

There are many horror stories about using Paypal on the web, though my experience so far with them has been rather pleasant (keep my fingers crossed). What about yourself?

Re: debit card enquiry

I think first check your card and see if there's any word 'visa or mastercard' on it. If I'm not wrong, some debit doesn't have that.

Re: debit card enquiry

You need to activate your debit card through the online banking system to start using if it's a new card

No problems so far, though if there is an alternative option to Paypal I'd almost always go for it. In the end Paypal is a middleman, and the less middlemen there are, the less likely it is for trouble to crop up.

Re: debit card enquiry

I use paypal alot as it's safer and quicker. Don't have to key in the credit card number everytime.
Link your bank account directly to paypal, or you can link the card. Either way it works.

but be careful, some sites charge extra when you select the paypal option.

Re: debit card enquiry

Call up dbs/posb debit cards department and have them activate your card. Then you have to link it to your paypal and authorize them to make transfers, deductions from your account.
