Is it possible to send money from paypal to your bank account WITHOUT connecting your bank account?
I want to get my money out of my Paypal account, but it doesn't seem to want to let me unless I go through the process of adding my bank account to my Paypal profile.
Since Paypal is the scum of the earth, and the entire POINT of withdrawing my funds is because I hate them, I don't want to give them access to my bank account.
Is there a way to escape the oppressive prison that is Paypal, without giving them access?
Get a cheque then, without telling them where u live how do u expect them to visit u (So without giving ur bank details who do u want them to send the money to?)
Why not get a paypal debit card and you would have access to your money anytime you want. But other than that you can't get your money without a bank account attached to it, and if you have them send you a check it will cost you more money.
I have used PayPal for 12 years without incident. Regardless, they have to have your bank information to ping your money in there. Once you receive your money close your paypal account then they won't have access anymore. You can also opt to have them send you a check.
It don't think it is possible. You need to connect your paypal account with your bank account to send or receive money.
My account was on hold till my bank account was confirmed on the paypal.
At least, in India it is not possible. Reserve Bank of India has strict norms for using paypal accounts.
Well, first of all I have been using paypal for about 10 years and never had a problem. what is your problem with them and why are they scum of the earth?? is it their policies?? did you read and understand thier policies BEFORE joining??
Perhaps you should withdraw via check, it only costs $1.50 and takes a week or two at the most. If you would like a quicker option, get a reloadable gift card that allows for direct deposit and use that routing and account number for your "bank account." Look into using Skrill or Moneybookers. Also, using the Paypal debit card should be an option. If you're just trying to keep your info safe and confidential, I can't blame you. You should be worried online.
Thank you for all your answers! To clarify a few things:
1. I do not have a problem with giving them my bank details so that they can make a payment to me. But what they want is for me to link the accounts together so that they can take money OUT of my bank account also. I have heard too many horror stories about Paypal to feel comfortable giving them access to take things out of my bank account (stupid fees causing overdraft expenses etc). Plus, I don't like them. I don't give my bank account details to those I don't like or trust.
2. I have always felt that they are the scum of the earth. I dislike their ridiculous fees and I dislike ebay does with them (which I view to be illegal Third Line forcing of their own subsidiary).
But recently my feelings have intensified, and they intensified even more when I tried to take some money out of my account and realized how restricted I was in doing that. Basically it was either send it to another paypal account or give them permission to take things out of my bank account.
I don't think there's another way, but I've contacted them, so I guess we'll see.

I've posted on their wall about it - from the time a sale is made, I could be waiting up to 5 months to see that money in my bank account, even if I reach the payout limit every month. If you have a minute, please go like and comment. Doubt they'll make a change, but may as well try...
