There is some great news for people who want to do business in the Philippines over the Internet! Paypal is already available for Philippine merchants! That’s right, now you can send and receive money with Paypal, even if you live in the Philippines.
This has been a major issue in the past. Remember a couple of months ago, I was writing a series of articles about selling on eBay? Well, the issue of how to get your money was the number one item that most people asked questions about or made comments about. With Paypal now doing business here in the Philippines, this issue is now solved, or nearly solved.
I just went and checked out the Paypal site, and it is still not perfect for sellers in the Philippines. They are still looking for a USA Bank Account to verify the account and to receive your money. However, they are moving in the right direction, and it is pretty obvious that things continue to improve. I believe that Paypal will only continue to improve for users here in the Philippines. I believe that anybody who is really determined to get going with Paypal can now make it happen.
Good luck to all sellers who are ready to get started!
