I already registered my UOB account with them. Rueyloon, you can call up the Branch where you open your account to ask for the information. I believe paypal also have a branch code guide for singapore at the page you enter those information.
I have used PayPal many times before and have not have any problems with them.
rueyloon: you can get the info from your bank or you can call them an ask for it. Actually you can get the info from your bank book. There is a string of numbers, and it contains all the info like bankcode and branch code...........unless you know which is which.
Best is to use credit card because if something goes wrong with the purchase you are protected by the card conditions on legal matters.
Beware when buying online with certain store in U.S. They are out to knock you. If you need more info of the more reliable stores I can assist you in choosing one
Ive used paypal, no problems except that the charge some money for certain things. Example if someone sends u money via credit card instead of via paypal money, they charge u a few US dollars. And if U transfer money from ur paypal account to ur bank, also cost a few dollars...and worse if U transfered money to ur bank account BUT it did not get thru, they still deduct money...
but if U using paypal to buy things then it'll be ok...
