They accept money, but you can`t draw out the money from a Bulgarian bank, or at least that was the situation 2 months ago. So Money Gram is the cheapest alternative.

Does anyone know if I can now withdraw funds, sent via Paypal, from my BG bank account?

An American friend seems to think this is now possible - I cannot seem to find much (any) information on the Paypal website about withdrawing in Bulgaria.

:?

Thanks

Surely if you can open a paypal account in BG with a BG bank card, then it would be logical to assume that you can withdraw funds from same said bank.

I know in the UK when I used PayPal that you could only withdraw funds to the registered (cleared) bank account.

Then some Nigerian scammer hacked my account, spent over £3000 and it took me over 7 months to have my money returned, despite having a variety of proof in my defence.

Out of principle I don't use paypal anymore.

You can not add a Bulgarian bank account to paypal they do not accept this. If however you have a bank card for your bulgarian account you can add this to paypal they then withdraw 1.50 euros from your card and send a four digit code to your bank statement.

Once you have this code you enter this onto your paypal account and it verifies your account and you can then withdraw funds from your paypal account to your BG bank account. You also get the 1.50 euros re credited to your paypal balance once you have done this process.

We as a business) take all our payments via Paypal. Unfortunately Paypal have told us (on several occasions over the last 2.5 years) that we can't withdraw to a BG bank account, so we have to have a UK business bank account to be able to get to our money. Maybe it will change if Bg ever changes to the Euro...but I suspect BG banks don't like the idea of instant payment and not getting to stamp loads of bits of paper while watching you run from counter to counter :lol:

Basically the same as Hamster just said but he/she put it more succinctly.

I still wouldn't use paypal anymore though :D
