    Hi to all BHW members. My paypal account access (also my cousins acc. too) got limited because of a dispute. And now I have to give them the details of my bank account in USA. (also an utility bill) Well the problem is I live in Turkey and I don't have any bank accounts in USA. I mailed paypal about it and they always sent me the same automated message. Me and my cousin had approximately 250$ in our PP accounts. It may sound small but we really need to pay for our purchases. :) (I bought a PSP and he bought a 22" monitor) So can anyone help us get some US bank accounts?

    Are you sure PP required your US BAnk account detail? Did you register with us address? If yes nothing you can do except to get the us bank account. Normally pp will ask a local bank details/credit card or debit card together with your local utility bills.Hope you register PP with your local address...i remember someone offers US LLC in this forum and you can used that reg LLC company to open an US bank acc

    Did you open the account as a US account or a foreign account?

    If you opened it as a US account it needs a US account to unlock, that is for sure, now if you opened it as a foreign account, you should only need to verify your credit card and send them a copy of a bill/identification.

    This is true!!
    The mistake was opening a US paypal account...
    Also if they digg deeper they'll see your accessing
    from a foreign IP unless you're using proxy's.

    My suggestion is that you try to verify this in a cheap
    way, open a new account assigned to your country,
    buy a cheap VCC to verify the account. Then make a
    donation button, post it on your blog, and transfer the
    money from your US account to your new account without
    paying any fee's.

    No.. You don't have to pay any fee's but be careful
    not to use this option to many times. Just 1 or 2
    times unless your getting regular donations through
    your website then this can be a great way to clean
    up your cash really nicely ;)

    Do they care if you are a non-profit or not? Can it be say like a forum receiving donations to run it but are not a registered non-profit?

    It has become a lot more difficult since 9/11, you need a SSN, TIN or corporate tax id. Now going the corporate route might be worthwhile, but you will have to pay for it.

    They don't care if you're a non-profit org or just a regular
    guy providing free information via blog or any other way.

    Just get few articles via some article directory, post them
    on a free wordpress blog and have a donation button
    on there with a subline of something like:
    "Did you find this info valuable, help keep us free."

    You get the point...

    Then if you have two paypal accounts you can use this
    button too transfer money without paying any fee's.

    But I recommend you don't use this more than ones a
    month with the same account!

    This can be good if you want to move for example $500
    dollars to another account that you OWN.
    You'll be able to safe $15 - $20 bucks on a $500 transfer
    this way!

    cool, i learn a new trick today. :cool:

    if the country is not paypal supported, you will need US account for verification.

    i notice Turkey is under "Send. Receive. Withdraw to a U.S. Bank Account or a card." category, you can verify with any credit/debit card and withdraw money to the card.

    check this page for the country supported by paypal:

    Code:
