Hey everyone just a few Paypal questions coz it's stressing me out and no one in customer care seems to be able to help *typical*

so i'm trying to add a bank account to withdraw some money and i don't know how to add it properly. My full name is Logan Peter Smedley so in the first name box should i put Logan Peter? and also my bank account,##-####-#######-083 the first six #s are easy but it says that there should only be 2 numbers after the last - so it won't let me put that in. so do i take the 0 out or what?

any help would be great i don't want to stuff it up and get charged a 5 buck fee. thanks

Yep Logan Peter as first name and Smedley as last name.

and yes 83 for last 2 digits.

takes 7 working days for money to show up. they will give you couple of options when withdrawing money.

to convert received money in NZ$ or to convert it in US$. convert it in NZ$ and then do the withdraw.

Do whatever you want to do man.

c71931f: And their is a fee for withdrawing under a certain amount.
I think it's $150USD, but i'm not 100% sure.

Yep it's $1 for anything under, free for anything over, so make sure you aren't getting $2 out, because after conversion and $1 charge, you'll only get like 85c

Also make sure you've set your account up as Personal, i did Business and I can't change my name or any details on it :( ever....only option for me is to get another credit card number and a new account, but then I lose my verified - confirmed details :(

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.
