20 thoughts on “Appeal To RBI ‘Resolve PayPal Issue In India’”

  1. Hello…thanks for dropping by my blog and sharing the link to sign the petition to resolve this never ending issue between RBI and Paypal. I am going to sign it now.

  2. Don’t know whether it will solve the problem or not i’ve already signed the petitions and also send letters to leading News Agencies and request them to cover the issue.

  3. According to RBI sources.
    1. If paypal keeps your money more than 7 days, they have to pay you interest and apply for a banking permit, hence the 7 day time to transfer your money.
    2. If paypal allows amounts of more than $500 per transaction, they have to apply for a banking permit.

    In the end, it is us who are left in the middle of the road. PayPal has taken our money by way of charges but they do not want to offer any service.

  4. Signed the petition and I am not sure how much it will be effective but I think this is a good move.

    Also an offtopic suggestion – Your theme is broken in Chrome. Just check that out as well.

  5. RBI people do not know importance of paypal on online business, it is not possible to run a online business without paypal, let RBI official try to do online business without paypal or let them try the business with their latest guidelines, it is not possible to do online business with their latest comic guidelines

    1. That is so true, I 100% agree with you,
      It is almost impossible to do an online startup without Paypal.

      Thanks a lot for your comments and don’t forget to share this with your friends.

  6. I have been helping people in India solve the Paypal problem through setting up a Hong Kong company which has a Hong Kong bank account tied to a Hong Kong Paypal account which can be operated remotely by the user in India.
