Withdraw funds from PayPal to Indian banks

By | January 25, 2009

paypalThis post is to answer all the blog comments asking how to withdraw money from PayPal to Indian banks.

PayPal allows you to withdraw money directly into your Indian bank account for free if you are withdrawing more than Rs.7,000. If it is less, it charges Rs. 50 as fee. This is the better way than requesting cheque because it takes few weeks to deliver, a month for realization, and more over PayPal charges $5 fee and your bank charges approximately Rs.150 to Rs. 250 for clearing international cheque.

Follow these steps to withdraw funds from PayPal to Indian banks:

Log into PayPal and click the link “Withdraw” Then, select the option “Withdraw funds to your bank account” and click “Add Bank Account” It will ask First name, Last name, Bank Name, IFSC code, and Account Number. The thing in question here is IFSC code.

IFSC is Indian Financial System Code assigned by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for every bank branch for easiness in transferring funds and communication. If you have an ICICI account, you can see the IFSC code printed on the cheque book itself. Get the list of participating banks and its branch codes in an xls sheet by clicking here. This is the link to the main listing page where you can find the updated list in case if it is updated by RBI and you are not able to get the XLS sheet. IFSC code is an 11-digit character and numeric code and looks like BKID0003322, which is an IFSC code for Bank of India, Gandhigram branch in Gujarat State. 3322 is the branch code and BKID is the bank code. Enter the appropriate IFSC code for your branch followed by your account number. You can also confirm it with your bank branch. After that you can select the amount to withdraw into your bank account, which readily converted into Indian rupees and showed to proceed with withdrawal.

Once you are done, you will get the money directly into your bank account in three to seven business days. I have tried to transfer the money to an ICICI account and it took only three days for getting the money. Still have questions? Post in comments.

    Hi naveen,

    My full name is jamshed singh luthra and i want to withdraw money from my paypal account. Paypal says that type your name correctly word to word as on your Bank account. Name on my bank account is Jamshed P Luthra, P stands for Parvinder which is my fathers name, since i live in mumbai, Here they put fathers name as your middle name. I requested to bank to change my name from Jamshed p luthra to jamshed singh luthra and i don’t know have they changed it or not…

    When I try to withdraw money from paypal, Paypal only shows first and last name, so what should i do. Should i skip middle name or not.

    If i skipped middle name, will my bank accept the payment or it will be rejected…Please tell me.

        It’s my first time withdrawal through paypal and paypal says minimum $10. should I transfer money to my bank by filling only first and last name (skipping middle).

        My bank is oriental bank of commerce.

      Don’t know about that…sorry. But, you can transfer it to an Indian PayPal, which automatically withdraws the money into your bank account.

    I have sbi yuva international debit card. and want to buy some products from ebay.
    they need paypal account.
    i have made an account , and linked up with my bank.
    but now i have seen that they dont get connected with my sbi yuva card, they need credit card.
    i have seen ur blog , u hav said to use vcc. but i dont hav any hdfc bank account.
    so is there any other way to sort out this problem?

    1. Naveen Post author

      You need credit card for purchasing from eBay. eBay item is paid using PayPal as payment processor. I never used VCC for purchasing products from eBay. I don’t know if any other bank offers VCCs from their debit card.

  9. joydeep

    I just want to ask one more question that , using hdfc vcc , each and every time whenever i will be buying product from ebay … will i have to verify the vcc code ? it will be deduct 1.95 dollar each and every time.
    else could i directly pay without verifying the paypal account?

    Hello Naveen ! I have a neteller account and i have requested a MemberWire Withdrawal from them. They have charged me a fee of 550. I have ICICI bank account . They say money will be transferred within 4 -5 days . Any Idea , How much will ICICI Bank charge for this Withdrawal . They say Indian Banks Take high fees for International bank wire , Is it true ???

    1. Naveen Post author

      I don’t think they charge anything. As it does not charge anything for my PayPal withdrawal, I assume it does not charge for any withdrawals into bank account.

    1. Naveen Post author

      I think you need a credit card attached in your PayPal. Is it an International Debit Card or just a Debit Card? While paying through PayPal, did your card show up for processing?

    Hi Naveen,
    Hope you are doing well. I’m a freelancer working for abroad clients. Fund transfer is generally done through Odesk. But now my client wants to take down the transaction from Odesk to Paypal. I have Bank of Baroda Visa Debit Card. Is it possible for me to link this visa debit card to my paypal account to be able to receive funds from abroad? I’ll be really grateful for your help and advice.

    Thank you,

    Hi Naveen,

    can you please tell me without RBI guidelines or bank tie up…..how can this nettller and skrill online international payment apps are working…..how can they debit from customer account??? when a new international payment apps started they wont take permission with banks or they wont tieup with the bank for they bussiness operations. bcz skrill and nettler are apps fraud company’s……when i informed to concern bank they said we wont tie up with payment apps…..

      They can only debit the card, if you provided the card details to them. You shouldn’t be entering the card details into unknown websites especially international sites. If you have provided those, you consented them to debit the card, so banks won’t be able to do anything.
