Paypal in Egypt now, only sending for now.

paypal_logoJust tried out paypal, it has been a long time waiting for this. Paypal can seriously help Egyptians that want to do small business online. Internationally it is the payment method of choice for many sites that allow people to do online jobs and tasks for a fee like fiver.com. It can open a whole world for web designers programmers and translators  in Egypt just to name a few.

Getting verified is easy, but it seems that there is no way to accept payments and be able to transfer them to your bank account till now. So you can get paid but it seems till now the money will stay in your paypal wallet.

Lets wait and see.

Yes for now that seems to be the case, remember Paypal was just activated yesterday :)
It could be that they are working on the rest of the features. Also the account I made was a personal account things could be different in a business account.

I am sure you can receive, I did not try it, the do say send and receive money on the site. But you can not move the money you receive to your bank account! You can only spend it.

admin says:

Thank you for the clarification. This is bad, it does not allow Egypt to use paypal to improve our economy.

admin says:

How do you get the money from papal usa to westernunion?

admin says:

Yes I have been using it ever since it was opened to Egypt and it works for sending but not for receiving. No wonder I do not think they want our IT small business to grow!
