If you work online, you must have a PayPal account because it is the easiest way to send and receive money overseas. Additionally, few personal details are required to complete the transactions, it is secure.
There are numerous options available to you if you live in the Philippines and want to withdraw money from your PayPal account. One option is a bank transfer, however, it takes a long time for the money to reach your account. The simple method is to instantaneously transfer your funds without incurring any fees if you have a GCash account. To make a transfer, you only need to link your GCash account to your PayPal account.
