Withdraw Funds From Paypal Account

I have accumulated some funds in Paypal account, from selling stuff in eBay and Yahoo Auction sites.

For us in Singapore, it is quite easy to transfer funds through one of the local bank, namely DBS, POSB, UOB or OCBC.

I have not tried foreign banks in Singapore, I think should be OK.

Before you initiating the transfer, do take note of the following:

1. Minimum withdrawal amount for Singapore Dollars is SG$15.

2. There is no withdrawals fee for SGD$200.00 but withdrawals fee for $199.99 or less is charge $1.00

3. The funds will be available in your local bank account between 5 to 7 business days, if there is not problem.

OK, I will show you the step by step to withdraw funds from Paypal account

First Step, you need to add a bank account information. Your local bank account must be a Singapore Dollars account. Enter your name exactly as it appears on your bank account statement.
