PayPal in Bangladesh

We, Bangladeshi people worked 1,178,567 hours in oDesk. It a remarkable activity for us. But it's a matter of sorrow that we have to suffer a lot for our payment method. We have occupied a remarkable space in outsourcing market. Hence our country doesn't have PayPal system. For this one system we lagging behind from our competitors. Can anyone show us a light of hope ?

I hope this problem will be

I hope this problem will be solved in a very short time.

Only govt. can tell us exactly what they are thinking of this problem.

I have a different point of view!

Hi,

Dear Mr. Mehrab Hasan, I agree with you to some extent. But the scenario is not entirely that bad. PayPal is necessary but definitely not the ultimate solution. Moneybookers is a very good alternative for PayPal in order to receive and withdraw money to your local Banks. Payoneer powered MasterCard Debit Card is also a good but a bit of expensive option. And if you want to sell your service or product, 2checkout or Plimus is a great source. Plimus even allows you to receive payments from PayPal. Isn't it great!

Besides, Bangladesh doesn't even support international electronic payment gateway just yet. How can you expect PayPal to operate here?

Cheers! And keep enjoy being a cool freelance professional!

We still can use PayPal from Bangladesh

Hi Mehrab Hasan,

Thank you for your post. We strongly needed PayPal in Bangladesh. However, we can use PayPal in Bangladesh, because we have Payoneer services. Payoneer's has an option (Pilot program) about VIRTUAL US BANK ACCOUNT. If you have 3 or more transaction with Payoneer's partner, you can apply for a virtual US bank account. Read more here http://community.payoneer.com/topic/82-hello-from-bangladesh/

If you can won a virtual US bank account then you will get a verified Paypal of your own. For signup information visit http://paymentroad.com website's FAQs section.

Problem is this if dollar price is 70+TK it paid you 1$=70TK no more. Although original 1$=75TK. But it's have another nice way that's it's transaction fee is free. So if you want to create or need paypal account in Bangladesh then i think you can find your solution.

PayPal Transition

They told they will make it soon. I talked with them one year ago. Now just have to wait when they think that they will get enough benefit from us and will make a transition with our country. Best of luck for us Wink

It's Our Digital Bangladesh !!!!!!!!!!!!!

it's big problem for bangladeshi freelancer. Our Government just tell our country going digital but can't do any digital things. If Our Government can't try for this it's not possible.

But i can give a solution. moneybooker support bangladesh and also odesk that's why you can open a moneybooker account and also connect your bank account which have SWIFT Code (such as dutch bangla bank: DBBLBDDH). you can verify your address easily fill-up correct address.

if you need more help about moneybooker just *removed by admin

Why PayPal???

I have a USA PayPal with PayPal MasterCard. If I withdraw from DBBL using the PayPal MasterCard, I'm get paid around BDT 70 per USD. But If I use Payoneer, I get around $72.
Again PayPal won't issue MasterCard to Bangladeshi user even they start accepting Bangladeshi people. And wire transfer costs are so higher.
So if we compare everything, Payoneer is the best at all.

sorrows of paypal

well, we can do works in odesk because it accept some other methods also but we are unable to work in many other places because they do not have many options - hence we are bound to some limited websites:( alas ! in digital bangladsh , the freelancers are chained!!!!!!!!!!

Paypal in BD

Hello,

Paypal cards pay out at 75 taka per dollar. I have a US card (becasue I am a US citizen but vist our home often). There are a lot of laws that paypal abides by, and you know our contry follows ZERO laws, it is not likely that pay pal will come here soon. Regardless, I am working on a site similar to paypalBD, with a lower fee structure, but I am waiting for Govt. remiitance approval. Ill be happy to let you know when it is live. For those who work on odesk that are in BD, I would be happy to hire and pay you through odesk, but allow you to withdraw your earnings in person in Dhanmondi. If you are a writer feel free to apply to my listings.

A recent update:
The central bank governor recently said they're working on this.

Take a look

See http://www.facebook.com/bangladeshifreelancers/posts/194911737235295
But i'm not excited because i'm sure PayPal is going to add tons of limitations for Bangladeshi people. Coz we are condemned and convicted.

thanx Papa P.

but when they will come to BD. this will solve all our prob. i need a paypal credit card.

paypal

in bd we have no digital opportunity.......so how we people increase our poverty level...........bcz those people who are dominate in our country they have no idea what is paypal and what is freelance,,,,,bcz they r great illiterate people in our country..........so how they can know what is digital or analog system? hah aaaaaaaaa haa

What 's the probelem with PayPal in Bangladesh?

Few months ago, I saw in the daily news papers that Bangladesh Bank issued a circular where they mentioned, they had given necessary instructions to the relevant Banks to take necessary action to implement PayPal system in Bangladesh, but till date there has not been taken any effective measures. What actually the problem is ? As I go for signing up PayPal account, I can see there are most of our neighbouring country in the drop down list except BANGLADESH & PAKISTAN. Really, this is disgusting.

Paypal In Bangladesh

Only our gov can approve Paypal. If they want can do it within 1 month. but they are working on it for last 3/4 years. recently haired that Bank Asia implementing paypal from January-2013. Just waiting dont know what will happen....
