Paypal to expand to Kosovo and Macedonia in 2014

A long awaited request from companies, entrepreneurs, startups and freelancers in Kosovo and Macedonia, is finally about to come to live in the year 2014, at least according to sources from Paypal present at the Webit Congress 2013.

Paypal payments have been temporarily used in Kosovo and Macedonia through different neighboring solutions and it looks like finally the address issues or payment issues will be solved by next year 2014. Representatives of Paypal said that because of market expansion to Turkey, Rusia and other big markets in the recent years, it was a mater of resources until the decision came on when to expand to our region and more or less somewhat next year things are about to change. “We know that it’s on the decision table for the year 2014” confirmed a sales representative of the Turkish market for Digjitale.

As for some blocked accounts that unfortunately have their money in a difficult position to move, it looks like there are some chance on retrieving the money since with the expansion happening in 2014, account confirmations are about to happen as well. Serbia and Albania are the recent neighbouring countries where PayPal has expanded to.

By all means it does Arian. BTW, the issue wasn’t making payments with paypal but rather receiving payments. I hope they don’t delay this by mid or end of 2014 and make this happen as early as possible. This is a big thing for us all, both for selling and buying online.

I have difficulty believing in this, to be honest. You do not cite any sources, and I cannot find any other news elsewhere on the Internet regarding this topic. And as we in Macedonia have seen before, there were thousands of rumors like this still circling over couple of years, yet PayPal is still unavailable.

[…] Претставници од Paypal изјавија дека поради проширување на пазарот до Турција, Русија, како и други големи пазари, било само прашање на време кога би дошол Paypal и во нашата земја. […]

i think you can still use it now when you register if you choice albania not sure how that work but i hear some people on my city got that im glad finaly we gonna have our place on paypal THANKS GOD FINALY:) thanks for this amazing news

You can use PayPal in Kosovo using this method:
1. You open a bank account at BKT bank in Kosovo (which is a branch of BKT Albania and they support PayPal) and
2. when you make/receive payments you select country Albania. That’s it.

Labinot, I have contacted today BKT bank in Kosova, but they said that Paypal has blocked this possibility, so it seems twe have to wait until PayPal is coming to Kosova

I cannot believe this. They have been lying to us since 2010. I’m earning online since 2008 and I desperately need an PayPal here in Macedonia. Hope this will be true.

Disa po thojnë se Paypali funksionon me kartela prepaid të Raiffaisenit , gjë që mund ta demantojë sepse nuk mund ta bësh konfirmimin në Paypal me të, por vetëm mundesh me dërgue para, ndërsa disa po thojnë se në BKT mund të funksionojë gjë që nuk besoj se funksionon as kjo sepse Paypali nuk është kah lejon konfirmimin e kartelave me llogari të Paypalit. Unë e kam marr edhe Starcard të TEB por nuk konfirmohet vetëm mund të dërgosh para gjë të cilën edhe jam duke e bërë për momentin, por nganjëherë ndoshta edhe na duhet të pranojmë para!!!

Une ka ma shume se 1 vit qe e pata konfirmu paypalin me kartelen prepaid të Raiffaisenit, por kete muaj, pra ne maj nuk po mundem me i terhjek paret qe me kan mbet ne paypal, keshtu qe besoj se e kan blloku edhe kte mundesi! Deri tani ka funksionu shume mire per, normal me bo pagesa nuk pom kom problem tash per tash, por po pres deri ne fillim te muajit te ardhshem ndoshta funksionon terheqja automatike e pareve qe e bon paypali cdo fillim muaji! Une fitoj pare ne internet keshtu qe paypal me duhet shume, e shpresoj shume qe kete vit te pranohet Kosova edhe ne paypal!

Kartelen mundesh me ba verify, por paypali nuk lejon qe paret mu transferu ne llogari, vetem nese nje pages qe e bon deshton ose kerkon refund kthim te mjeteve atehere kthehen, kta e di sigurt, ndersa per pagesa edhe per dergim te pareve funksionon super… po foli per kartele te TEB edhe prepaid kartel te raiffaisenit 🙂

Nese mundesh me verifiku, atehere edhe paret te dalin ne llogari, edhe pse ndoshta ti smundesh me i terhjek kur deshiron, por te dalin cdo fillim muaji, sepse paypali automoatikisht ti dergon ne llogarine tande ne bank! Keshtu me funksionon mu te pakten.
