US Bank account

#1 Postby alexfad » Apr 28, 2012 8:36 am

Hi! Does anyone here had an experience of opening the US bank account for non residents? It will be great if you will provide me this information as I already have a three zeros sum on my paypal account and I need to withdraw it as fast as possible

Thank you

not possible.
you need to be a resident, green card holder, visa holder etc.
otherwise no way, US is paranoic.

^incorrect

I opened a US bank account to avoid fees from paypal. The way to do it is to look for a bank that has branched into USA that is also located in the country you live in. If you ask them they will help you create a bank account located in the US. There may be other ways, but this is how I did it. Good luck!

Not quite understood. How can you avoid fees from paypal? If you have a US bank account then paypal won't take any fee per transtaction?

Does anyone tried the Netspend? They send you a debit card and give a virtual bak account. Can paypal ban me if I will use it for withdraw

paypal charges a conversion rate fee for all currencies. If you handle mostly USD getting a US bank account will help you avoid those fees.

I can't tell you if Citibank will do it for you as I'm not with them, but I don't see why they wouldn't. You are giving them extra business by opening an extra account and transferring money through them. I told my bank exactly what I am using it for, it is not illegal. They were fine with it and opened my US based Bank account for me immediately.

Book an appointment with your financial advisor and tell them what you need. Doesn't hurt to ask :)

My 0.02$ : paypal allows to have several different currencies in your account, the money is "stored" separately.
