Moneybookers: PayPal alternative for Pakistan.

Filed under: Blogging, Internet, Karachi, Life, Pakistan, Technology — Hameedullah Khan @ 3:47 pm

PayPal does not allow sign ups from Pakistan. I can not seem to find any technical reason behind that. Maybe only god knows why they do not like us? I said this because I tried to contact PayPal official support and I inquired them when the sign ups will be available in Pakistan. The answer was not satisfactory, in fact the answer was not even related to the question I asked. PayPal added bunch of countries to their accepted countries list early in May, and again Pakistan was not even on that list. See the approved counties list. And the worst thing is PayPal is an ebay company, I think ebay should also remove sign ups for Pakistan. If we cannot put our money online then how can we buy and sell?

So, if PayPal is not available for us then what should we (the people of Pakistan) do? Don’t we need to spent money online? Don’t we need to buy things online? Don’t we need send money to someone? Don’t we need to earn money online? Don’t we need to sell things online? Either wait for the PayPal to approve our country or go a head and get your self signed up on Moneybookers is the very nice service and lot of people use it, does not matter if the users are not 100 million but atleast their are million people using it. I myself has an account on Moneybookers, the services is awesome.

My Address has already been verified, now I will verify my bank account in few days ;) although I don’t need to verify it as the current outgoing and incoming limit is pretty high for me :). But you have all type of options available. So, in last Moneybookers is a very good service for online money transactions.

I hope to see Moneybookers supported by every second site like they do support PayPal. For me I will be asking to add support for Moneybookers where ever I will be buying or selling things. If that worked out may be I will never need to have a PayPal account.

Go go


  1. You’re absolutely right about there being no reason why they’re not adding Pakistan, since Pakis use Ebay and PayPal is an Ebay company. Wasn’t Ebay started by an Indian? Seriously yaar…what’s his problem???!!! And all Paypal transactions via credit card are backed up by your bank account in case it doesn’t go through-so that’s a safety measure.

  2. Well Paypal isn’t supporting pakistan due to pakistan law enforcement committees innovating a new law for every minute. I have been into contact with them and i am convinced that, for this matter pakistani’s gov is 80% responsible…

    Baaki about Ebay and etc, come’on you know, this is the way both countrymen have been since partitioning.

  3. Hey,, anybody have used MoneyBooker from Pak? I areally thinking to get registered with them.. and it can be easily integrate with my website? thanks.

  4. @Shoaibi:

    Offcourse Govt. is 100% responsible for everything, but still why do we have to suffer because of those bad decision makers who don’t even know what IT means. But still if Moneybookers can provide services in Pakistan then why not Paypal? If they can send checks and can accept VISA and master cards (leave the bank accounts on side) then what is the problem in allowing Pakistanis to use this service.

    Simply allow us to upload funds via our Cards and withdraw via checks. Is it really difficult? I don’t think so.

  5. Paypal seems bias. However the good news is that soon you will get pakistani payment processor like Paypal subject to the agreement of state bank.

    So people tight your seat belts now…..

  6. is that pakistani based paypal working now. my addres has been verified but it will take some time before payments are released to me from my GAF account to moneybookers and then into my bank account. i hope here are no problems with this.

    any one here who has actually recieved payments through moneybookers yet. if there are then please email me at shehryar_shk a-t

    Comment by Shehryar — January 9, 2008 @ 3:22 pm

  7. Ill tell u why Paypal doesn’t open up services to Pakistani customers. The simple reason is that Paypal is managed and owned jointly by Indian and Israeli nationals. That just goes on to show the extent of bias these people have against Muslims in general and Pakistanis in particular. Plz don’t get me wrong but this is the reality that we have to wake up.

    Comment by Talha — January 15, 2008 @ 9:40 am

  8. I have come to know that the people who are in the Hundi business (illegal money transfers) have created a monopoly and have made sure that Paypal does not get approval from the State Bank of Pakistan to work in Pakistan.

    Unless the officials can take decisions in the interest of the people and not be pressurized by the Hundi Mafia, we can’t hope for Paypal or any other such service to work securely in Pakistan.

  10. the reason pak is not on the list is the same reason nigeria is not on the list - FRAUD ! pakistan is number 2 in the list of worldwide fraud and nigeria is number 1 . its a shame because unfortunately all pakistanis are being painted with the same brush. and thats not fair. i’m sure one day things will change - inshallah i hope its in my lifetime

    Comment by hazaar — March 22, 2008 @ 1:19 pm

  11. AOA every one, moneybookers works!!!!!. i have been receiving my paymnets through moneybookers and my moneybookers account is linked to my alfalah account so the balance takes around 7 days to get transfered from moneybookers to my account. Plus moneybookers is teh cheapest method available since tehy only charge you around 0.50 + 2.5 Euros per transaction even if it is 10000 dollars. one can increase this limit by paying a fee i guess.

    I hope this helps, best of luck entrepreneurs.

    how can i get my cash by the help of money bookers ?

    Comment by Asif — June 25, 2008 @ 3:15 pm

  14. Bank Alfalah works like a charm with Moneybookers. The money will get into you account with in 10 days, sometimes with in a week.


    1. Open a Bank Alfalah Account.

    2. Check your BIC code from

    a. Enter “BANK ALFALAH LIMITED” in Institution keyword field.

    b. Enter “Karachi” or your city in City field.

    c. Select “Pakistan” from drop down menu.

    3. Goto Moneybookers Add Bank page and enter all the information.

    4. Withdraw 20Euro from your Moneybookers account to your Bank.

    5. Goto your bank after 4 days and confirm from them if money has arrived.

    6. Upon confirmation request a bank statement. Your bank statement will have a secret keyword from Moneybookers.

    7. Enter the keyword into the verify bank account page.

    I hope the above will help all of you out there.
