Online seller and buyer from Saudi Arabia have now reason to be happy. Just yesterday I got an e-mail from PayPal informing me, that I could now connect my Saudi issued VISA Credit Card to my PayPal account. And I could withdraw anytime to my VISA Card issued in Saudi Arabia.

It is not really very clear to me, how things will work for Saudi Paypal Account, since according to the PayPal any balance will be transferred to my VISA Credit Card at every first week for the month.

Anyway it is a really good thing to have a Saudi based PayPal Account. PayPal could be used in many ways in transacting online.

Good Day.

* Update *

Here are some information received from PayPal


Now that you can receive payments, you can start selling with PayPal. Also, we want to tell you about an important feature of your PayPal account.

30 – day pending balance

Payments you receive go to your pending balance. Payments in your pending balance belong to you, but you can’t use or withdraw them, usually for 30 days. After that, pending payments go to your available balance, unless PayPal is holding amounts for another reason, as specified in the PayPal User Agreement or other agreement that you have entered into with PayPal. After you have a successful selling history with us, we will make all your payments available soon after customers send you payments.

Why do your payment go into a pending balance?

* We’ve found that until you have a successful selling history, problems between sellers and buyers are more likely.
* Sometimes buyers ask their card issuer to reverse a payment. By putting your payments into a pending balance, we make sure you can return payments quickly to a buyer’s account.
* The pending balance period gives new sellers a way to establish a successful selling history.

Withdrawals to your bank account in the U.S

You can let your withdrawals happen automatically. Your available balance is automatically transferred on the first day of every month to the bank account in the U.S that you’ve selected.

You can also withdraw payments yourself – any amount upto entire available balance. Here’s how:

* Log in to your PayPal account and click Withdraw at the top of the page.
* Click the card or bank account you want to use.
* Enter the amount to withdraw and click Continue.
* Make sure that your information is correct and click Continue.

Withdrawals from your PayPal account appear as credits on your card or bank statement. You can also find withdrawal information on your Account Overview.

I Think this answers my question above.

Update : 02 April 2012

I have found out that if a certain company is always sending you on a monthly basis, their amount will be easily converted to the available amount however if somebody send you for the first time, it will take a month to get the funds. For me Chitika and infolinks payments is being transferred to my available amount the moment it arrives my Saudi PayPal account. I have also tried to transfer an amount to my VISA credit card and it cost me $5 for the transaction and money is received after 5 days.

    I have a SABB visa credit card and i have successfully linked it with Paypal. Now i want to figure out how this mechanism will work? Like if i receive any payment on paypal and i want to withdraw from paypal from my credit card, how would it be possible. I don’t understand how payments are being received on credit cards? Can i get any explanation on this matter in detail? I’ll appreciate for the help.

    • @Hamed Nawaz Mughal,

      If you have money in your paypal account. You cannot withdraw it for about a month. They will freeze the account. Then if it is released they will automatically transfer it to your credit card or you may want to request earlier through the withdraw tab. The money in credit can now be used to purchase or be withdrawn by you..

      Sorry for disturbing you i just need little help.
      I had linked my Visa Credit Card issue by NCB bank to PayPal account which is USD and my account in SAR so my two questions.
      1)How long it will take to receive money in my Visa Card ?
      2)Will it deduct some charges for converting USD into SAR ?

      Also tell me your experience with your Bank even If you don’t know about NCB.
      Thank you

    Ahaan, thanks dude (or dudette =P) for simplifying it up!!

    I’d be moving to KSA soon for Iqama renewal these holidays, and would surely compel my dad to have one for me so that I could continue earning some extra bucks.

    I’d reply on this post (or is there any other better way to catch up with you?)If need any word of opinion whatsoever! Thanks!

    I have an Account (or rather my Dad’s) at Saudi Hollandi Bank. I do freelance work and get paid on Moneybookers. But due to much lucrative offers I’ve to switch to PayPal, but here you need to have Visa unlike MoneyBookers. What do i have to do? Does making a visa card require large fee? Excuse me for being an absolute dummy at this credit card thingy- but please explain me all the steps I need to take on.

    Since I would just be using this credit card for Paypal, I do not wish to pay excessively for the fee.

    • @BayView,

      Actually it is not that hard to get a credit card in Saudi Arabia. You just have to fill out the information form in the bank and you to give your 3 mos proof of salary. It would be easy to get the credit card from you are banking. The copy of Iqama is also needed. At the moment Paypal accepts only VISA and you have to wait a month before you can get your monney transferred to your bank account.

        @Best of Riyadh,

        Ohkay, thanks a lot!
        So I can keep receiving my payments at Paypal account being assured that I’d be able to get a Visa card and then transfer it to the bank account after 1 month. (If it didnt work out, I could go to hell with all that virtual money hahah :P)

        And do you have any idea about the fee aspect? I’d be very fine at any deduction, even 50 % but only on the amount that is being withdrawn from PayPal. But I would hate to give out monthly fee etc, since it my Dad’s account. 😀

        • @BayView,

          If you have your visa card.. you can withdraw it directly from your visa credit card through cash advance.. but there is a fee of course.. It will be a minimal fee and not a big one..

          As for me example I just received the other day an amount of US$122 , and this amount transfer to my credit card on April 1. without a fee.

          I will only have to pay the fee to credit card company if i will withdraw the funds through cash advance but normally I just use my credit card to buy things for our daily use. :)

            @Best of Riyadh
            Hi ,
            Just need little info.
            When you withdraw money US$122 to your credit card then how much you receive in SAR?
            Is your account in SAR currency ?
            And Is NCB support PayPal ?
            I am thinking of huge fee they charge for converting USD into SAR.

            Thank you in advance.

    Paypal transfers to Credit Cards not Debit Cards.
    I suggest you open a Sabb bank account.

    Secondly when the they transfer i will usually take 5 to 7 days for it to show on your bank statement. (Just like some transactions take a little more time to show)

    Thanks to Best of Riyadh for this GREAT INFORMATION!


    • @Mudasir,

      I confirm with this statement, I am getting my paypal fund on a monthly basis and yes it takes 4 to 7 days to get the funds through sabb VISA credit card

      • Mudasir says:

        @Best of Riyadh,

        Thank you very much for the information.
        How do you know that you have received the funds? do you get an email/SMS? or do you check the e-visa statement? how?

        Thanks in Advance.

        • @Mudasir,

          Sorry it took some time respond.. but you may always check your online bank statement..normallynowadays bank is telling it’s consumer through text message that there is an amount transferred to you account.
