PayPal Sends Money to the Philippines!

PayPal Philippines

Oh my God. This is the gamechanger. Philippine PayPal users can now receive money.

Let that sink in for a second. Rural Filipinos can now sell their towns’ products directly to the world over eBay. Talented Filipina babes can become the next Happy Slip by posting their videos on Revver. The Philippines — indeed, individual Filipinos — can finally earn money in the global Long Tail of ecommerce.

My mind is now racing with the possibilities for my fellow Filipinos. For years, the government has talked big about globally empowering Filipinos through ecommerce. Guess what: the power is here.

Now the task is to show people how to use that power. Filipinos are so used to the oppression of the middleman that they’ll have to learn how to live with disintermediation.

I want to name so many more sites where Filipinos can make money through PayPal, but I can’t. I know they’re out there, in the thousands. I just haven’t kept track of them. We’ve lived without PayPal for so long, we’ve ignored all PayPal revenue sources. We all have to get used to the light after years in the darkness.

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

    That’s great!

    If only I could get my Paypal to work…it would be so much easier with online shopping.

    I find using paypal very difficult,i can’t enroll into it easily.

    It’s true. I am one of those Filipinos who earn money on the internet. And I withdraw my earnings through paypal (aside from adsense which I withdraw through Western Union). It really helps me a lot in my finances.

    Bago lang po ako sa PAYPAL….. actually i was able to enroll and get verified merely by following several steps shared by paypal bloggers sa net. but still hindi ko alam how safe paypal is: here are some question that could help clearout my mind:

    1) if a person gets my email and pay me via paypal how long will the transaction reflect on my PAYPAL current balance for me to know that the transaction made was good???

    2) Is there any risk in PAYPAL similar to Western Union, that if a person who pays first would have a greater risk that his counter part would run away from the obligation agreed upon????

    3) If a person pays through paypal, if the second party has scammed the payer. Is there a possibility that the payer can cancel the payment made or not?????

    please helppppppppppppp. tnx
