It’s PayPal Time

J. Angelo Racoma calls for the inclusion of the Philippines in PayPal’s list of accepted countries. I’m totally for it, but unfortunately our laws are giving them a hard time.

I’m a big Internet spender and I have had numerous run-ins with PayPal not accepting my credit card because it was issued in the Philippines. Just a few days ago I tried to buy a subscription from a geeky website, but try to guess why that didn’t flourish. I used to have a PayPal account before while I was living in the USA, but that basically committed suicide when I came back home. PayPal doesn’t like the Philippines, most probably because of its defective Anti-Money Laundering policy. I don’t blame them, but it’s getting to my skin!

If you support Angelo’s cause, please Digg his story to keep the flame burning.
