Subject: PayPal for Pakistan
Dear Mr. Donahoe,
I am writing to you to inquire as to why Ebay and Paypal services are not available in Pakistan. It is very disheartening to note that whilst countries like Angola, Yemen, Uganda, Madagascar, Jordan, Kuwait and Rwanda (to name a few) can enjoy the benefits of PayPal, Why is Pakistan left out?
Pakistan is home to 17+ Million users of the Internet. Mobile users are hovering around the 80+ Million mark. The population is 160 Million. Our banking system is robust and seasoned, whilst our digital infrastructure is top-notch, having many firsts (for example: we have the world largest Wimax deployment).
For years I have personally been writing to Ebay/PayPal, but have never received a reply, which in this day and age, is quite disappointing.
The main objective of this letter to know (not superficially, but in detail) what is preventing the inclusion of Pakistan in the countries where PayPal / Ebay services can be offered.
A lot many professional organizations in Pakistan are willing to lend support to the cause, should Ebay/PayPal require so.
If there are any policy or government issues preventing your organization from doing business here, kindly do highlight the same so that at the very least we can start addressing the issue.
I just want to be able to have an eBay and a PayPal account from Pakistan. In the event you want to reach me, the easiest way is via email, my personal email address is [email protected] and official email address is [email protected]
