Yesterday I received my first payment via PayPal. Due to my ignorance it took almost 3 weeks, but after discussing with my local bank office and clarifying needed procedures, next time it will be couple of days, like it should be.

So, how it works?

1) I request a payment from stock agency

2) After couple of days I get email from PayPal, announcing that payment is arrived

3) I go to my PayPal account and withdraw the needed sum to my credit card

4) Due to the type of my credit card, I have to remind my bank to perform the transaction and put money on my card. If I don't send them the reminder, they will do it automatically after 30 days of waiting time (but that delay is only because the type of my credit card)

5) And that's it, money is on my credit card later the same day or next day

So yes, it's proven, you can receive money via PayPal in Estonia.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
Anyway keep up the excellent ,
it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days..


:) You are welcome, Marko. Yes it is a big deal, but as you can see from my post, I learned it too 4 long months after the launch... :) But I still prefer to use MB as long as DT supports their service. So far MB is the best and fastest for me.


It is really good that you mentioned this Maigi! I have waited for this for a long time :) It is strange that i haven´t heard about this in the news. It is a big thing!


Yes, it's good to have choices. J'ai vue, que tu as une merveilleux site. Est ce que se sont toute ta photos là? J'aime ce photo de la Tour Eiffel, très originale! :) Salut!


anyway cool that you get the choice between differents options...
it takes at least 5 days for me that the paypal money reach my bank acount


I'm not doing a business, so €500 daily is well more than enough for me. Don't know how good partner PP could be in big business.
PP charged 30 EEK, it's about $2.8 something, I guess. It's almost double than MB's $1.5 and less than charges on check - 1.5% and minimum 100 EEK, or $9.5 in my bank, which is Hansa.


the problems are:

1. awfully low daily transaction limit. it's 500euro.
2. if you withdraw more than you spend with credit card, it's a pain to actually GET your money. unless it's Sampo Gold wich has an ordinary account (not tested yet)

how much did PayPal charged you for entire transaction, by the way?


Thanks, Yuris! It's good to be aware about different dangers what are connected with Internet services, just as with any business. Link you provided is great, but that "Click Here For The #1 PayPal Alternative" makes me cautious toward that site too... So, I guess time and experiences will show, whom we can trust, just as in every other area of the life. :) But thanks for the link! Good to know.


It is a great news!
There is a lot of information about PP here also:
It is better to know.


That's sad, Nikola. But me too, I hope it will change soon. Good thing is that Moneybookers is still working, isn't it?


:) Thanks Rui! Much more valuable than income flow are good friends. Thanks for being one! Take care! :)


great, but here in Macedonia pay-pal doesn't work. I don't when will be!? i hope soon......


Great, Maigi!!!!
You know, I always wish you the best, heheh ;-)
Hope that helps on your income flow...
All the best, my dear friend!
