    So guys I earned some $400 and withdrew $300 of it on the 14th of feb via check. Paypal has issued the check but I have not received the check till now. Is it usual and how long do I wait to ask them to reissue it??
    Also can I ask them that since the check has not reached me, transfer it to my bank account

    2 weeks isn't terribly long, especially if you live outside the US. In the future, transfer to your bank account.

    I hope someone has not stolen your check. Oversea mail is around 7 days now unless you live in North Pole.

    If you transfer straight to your bank account it is quite quick 1 - 3 days...

    Maybe its one of their ploys to discourage people from getting their money to the bank, so they take extra long to send out the check. Then when you have a lot of money in your account THEY FUCKING CLOSE IT and theres nothing you can do about it. :eek:

    I know PP sucks big time but it has a monopoly in a sense so just can't help it

    Ok. I believe paypal states that checks take 2 weeks to deliver an while they say "because of your bank this process takes 3-4 business days" that's a load of crap they just hold the funds and collect interest. A bank Transfer should be instantaneous. PayPal knows you have the funds and should have no problem sending them. As I said I feel they do it to earn interest... Anyways, from my experience it almost always takes 4 days to do a bank transfer with them. Best idea in my opinion is to get the PayPal Debit Card.
