Q: The PayPal transfer method?

Hi guys

Does anyone the method of using PayPal linked with your UnionPay debit card to send money to your PayPal American bank account?

Two ways that I haven't tried yet.

A. Add UnionPay debit card and U.S bank together on the same account and transfer money from my UnionPay card to PayPal balance than transfer it to my American bank account within the same PayPal account.

Or

B. Make two PayPal accounts and send money from UnionPay debit card PayPal account to the other separate PayPal account that would have my American bank account.

Can you share your method?
Really don't wanna go through the hassle of walking into a bank here.

Option B used to work for me, but I haven't tried it in a year or so.

 

Option C - ask a Chinese person to do an International Transfer direct to bank account from Alipay.

Thanks friend! The banks are a total nightmare and the only way to get to Western Union, which charges another fee...

I read this the other day that CLAIMS we can use Alipay to transfer money home. I seriously doubt it will work. Tempted to give it a try though.

My wife sent funds to my Canadian bank account using her Union Pay before with no problem. Also, I would withdrawl funds from my Chinese bank account from an ATM in Canada that had a Union Pay function. 

 

The exchange rate wasn't that bad either.

A:I'm prepared to give the guy some slack. He asked a few shifty questions in 2012 then went dormant for 5 years and suddenly appears asking newbie questions. A bit suss but who knows, he could just be a moron. Benefit of the doubt given.
