Update 2/9/2008 : The good news: As promised, Paypal did process some of the delayed withdrawal transactions yesterday. The bad: Not all pending requests were completed. Several members, as seen in this PMT Forum discussion thread, are still waiting.
A follow-up to the pending Paypal withdrawals problem currently plaguing users: Paypal has issued an official announcement at the eBay site claiming they plan to resolve the issue by today, February 8.
The announcement, posted on February 5, goes:
February 05, 2008 | 12:54PM a PHT
We are aware that users in certain countries such as Malaysia, India, Indonesia and the Philippines, are currently unable to complete withdrawals to their Visa credit, debit or prepaid cards. We are working diligently to resolve this as quickly as possible so that you can access your funds. We hope to have this resolved in the next 72 hours and will let you know once we have more updates.
Thank you for your patience.
The PayPal Team
The “next 72 hours” lapses 3 days from February 5 so if the announcement is to be believed, Paypal should have resolved the issue by today, February 8.
Apparently, the delay in processing withdrawals was a result of a “technical issue,” as explained by a Paypal staff in an email reposted on Jerome Locson‘s blog:

You are writing us because of your pending withdraw from Jan. 27,
I have reviewed your PayPal account and I can see the payment you were sending for $ 152,50 to your Credit Card is still pending. I can confirm that it is pending due to current technical issue in PayPal system caused by a recent update and I sincerely regret the inconvenience it has caused you. Our technicians are working to resolve this matter. I appreciate your patience and understanding.

While transactions under the new withdraw to bank account feature seems to be completed in just a few days, withdrawal transactions to the debit or credit card remain to be pending after almost a month.
Let’s see if Paypal can live up to its promise of resolving this issue today.

this is a good news.. completed na yung withdrawal ko to my eon account number just yesterday. So i’ll be expecting my hundred dollars ngayon from Jan. 24, 2008 withdrawal..ang liit pa naman ng conversion.. but bahala na as long as makuha ko na yung pera.. thanks PMT!
That’s a withdrawal to EON the bank account,not the debit card, right lady? Withdrawals to the EON bank account are quickly processed, some have reported seeing their funds just a day after their request. As for the card withdrawals, I just hope Paypal can stay true to their promise of solving this issue today.
yes James. I used the account number of my eon debit card in the withdraw to bank option. Basically the sam EON Debit Card but only this time I used the account number not the card number.. it worked really fast.. i just made another withdrawa and sana mabilis ulit..hehhehe
Yeah, read that announcement last night. I’m so jealous, PayPal did not reply me. lol.
I now have my pending Paypal fund withdrawal to EON Card COMPLETED. 🙂 You can check a screenshot I made on this link:
It was completed sometime between 11AM (last time I checked it still with pending status) – 4PM today.
I made the withdrawal last January 28, 2008.
I withdrawed money to my Unionbank account (debit card) and thankfully, the status is now completed.
I wrote about it here:
I hope all of your pending withdrawals are now resolved.
I got my withdrawal “Completed” earlier this afternoon. Check my latest post about paypal pending withdrawal here.
hmmmm. how come yung withdrawal ko last jan24 to my debit card pending pa rin..sana it will be completed today..
Congrats to those whose pending requests have been processed! I’ve added your links on the updated blog article. For those whose transactions are still pending, I hope you can get your funds soon.
Hope you guys managed to get this issue resolved. I know how it feels to get your money stucked!
Just wanna share this email from PayPal which I have received yesterday. However, napunta sya sa Spam section ng Gmail ko but fortunately I was able to see it before I deleted all of my spam emails.
Dear *my full name here*,
Due to a technical issue we have experienced starting on January 20, 2008 we have been unable to successfully withdraw funds to your credit card. As we work through resolving this issue you may experience one of the following scenarios:
Pending status – if your withdrawal is ‘pending’ then we are still working to resolve the issue and complete your request. We are treating this issue with high priority and will update you as soon as it is resolved.
Completed status – if your withdrawal is ‘completed’ then we have processed your request and the funds will post to your credit card in 5 to 7 days
You should not see any delays on future withdrawals.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we appreciate your business.
I see. that explains my 10 days Still Pending Stat on my withdraw to CC.
I actually wrote an email to PayPal, asking how much they are making in profit for such delays. hihi.
Did you know their call and email support is outsourced to the Phil..? Hmmmmm….
i got an email too.. and it was in the spam mails..hehhhe.. glad i checked the spam.. yet my withdrawal is still pending. baka next week pa ma complete. nauna png na complete yung bank withdrawal ko last friday..
at last… my EON withdrawal last JAN 26 was marked completed (9PM, Feb9) but my JAN 28 withdrawals is still PENDING, hopefully tomorrow mag ok na din ung isa… eto po ung screenshot… (thanks JAMES for the updates!!)
i have a WITHDRAWAL to BANK ang ginamit ko sa BANK eh yung EON DEBIT pero ang sabi COMPLETED NASA PAYPAL
kaso wala parin sa EON ko? ganun ba talaga?
My pending status (since Jan27) finally got completed this Feb 11.
Then today, Feb13, natransfer na sya finally sa EON ko!
PayPal and EON must really love me. =D
People pa help naman
may problem ata ang EON Bank account transfers
it was completed naman na sa PAYPAL but until now wala pa rin sa EON Card ko? it depends pa rin ba sa Bank? so if ganun wala din pala difference kasi parang halos pareho lang yung bank account and EON Card kung per days kasi halos 3 days or 4 days na although completed na status nung bank transfer sa PAYPAL wala pa rin sa EON Account ko..
ano kaya problem?
nag withdraw ako ng feb 7 den im not sure if 8 or 9 xya nag complete , pero hanngang ngayon wala parin ung money sa EON ko ..
ok lng ba un ? 15 na ngayon : (
