Q: Looking somebody with paypal account

Hi guys

 

I have a couple of hundreds on my PayPal account and I want to withdraw them, but the reason is I don't want to pay USD 35 commission just for 200 bucks. IS anybody here from USA or Hong Kong who can cash me these in RMB?

 

Any help will be appreciated

You could open new Chinese bank account, and transfer funds from PP there.

If you open Gold account at China Merchants Bank (Visa/Mc ATM card), you can transfer foreign currency, and as I know there aren't any fees, if transfer between the same owner accounts.

I'm just wondering how $200 will change your life here in China? Such a vast sum  could only be destined for the stock market or property investment surely.

 

Why not wait until your tourist visa expires and you go home and ask your mum for a few hundred squids?

 

Can you can refund the 30 seconds it took to answer this when you get home?

You can teach english for two hours and make that amount back in less time than you took worrying about how to get this amount.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
