Switch from PayPal to BankAccount payment.

Hi,

do you think that switching from the paypal to bankaccount payment worth the effort?

 

The real expense for me isn't che 3% or the 1.8% but the currency exchange rate.

Do you think that is more convenient switching to bank account?

I did the switch a few months ago for Bango.  Just setup a US account and have them direct deposite.  You can then do the exchange anytime you like.  It is worth it since paypal screws you with the exchange.

Re: Switch from PayPal to BankAccount payment.

No, I still use PayPal, the transfer cost is 1.1% (to my bank account), so the Bango offer is not attractive enough Smiley Happy

Re: Switch from PayPal to BankAccount payment.

Is this PayPal fee taken before I receive the money from Bango? I don't see where PayPal is charging me a fee to transfer to my bank account or to receive payments from Bango.

If you don't see any fees in your PayPal account, then you are not charged.

Re: Switch from PayPal to BankAccount payment.

I also do not see any fees in my PayPal account. But I think I will switch to bank transfer because Paypal currency exchange rate is really bad.

 

Anyone had switch to bank transfer? Do you know how's good/bad is the currency exchange rate?

 

Thanks!
