The number of Paypal users in Kenya is growing and likewise, the number of peple receiving money into their Paypal account is also growing. How do people withdraw money from their Paypal account to a Kenyan bank? Does Kenyan users have equal opportunities to withdraw from their Paypal account to a Kenyan bank?
A couple of sites and blogs have given tips for withdrawing from Paypal and some websites even provide services for making a withdrawal but before we get satrted, let's take a look at the options Paypal gives to users for making a withdrawal locally

What Paypal says
According to Paypal's website Kenyan users may Send, receive and Withdraw from their PayPal accounts to a U.S. bank account.

So what this means is that you can get a Non resident US bank account and this is probably not easy as you would have to be physically present in the US to do this. I also hear that Payoneer, a mastercard provider intends offering virtual US bank accounts and if this works, it would help solve a lot of problems for Paypal users in Kenya until local banks starts encouraging local Paypal withdrawals. Payoneer's Virtual US bank accounts is a topic for dicussion on another day so I will stick to this topic.

What other options are available for withdrawing from your Paypal account?
- You can shop with it online and get tangible goods delivered to Kenya
- You can use it to pay for your web services
- You may still make withdrawals using other alternatives I have mentioned in my Paypal withdrawal ebook

Paypal has somewhat bemcoe the default payment system for freelance services around the world. For people in Africa (apart from South Africa), this has been a major hindrance since the service is confined to the rest of the world forgetting the continent. However, if you are in Kenya you may find this post worth your while. PayPal now works in Kenya!
