How do I take money out of my PayPal account?

I'm new to PayPal, but so far everything's been good. I've figured out how to put money on my card. That stuff's easy, but I can't seem to be able to withdraw money from my account.

PayPal is stupid in that you have to link a bank to be able to take out money, rather than just being able to use your IBAN, and send money that way. I typed in what I thought were the right details for my account (namely the number beneath the chip on my card because the IBAN was too long, and the BC number which I believe is 9000 for PostFinance), but I got an e-mail saying that the two small deposits PayPal made didn't go through.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this? Am I doing it wrong? What two numbers am I supposed to type in?

I don't have a lot of money in my account, but I'd rather it were on my card where I can make use of it, rather than spending it on something silly just so it isn't going to waste.

BC is 9000. It seems you've put in your card number, not your account number. To get that, look at your contract, or a bank statement.

Re: How do I take money out of my PayPal account?

Thanks for the info, guys. I figured out the whole thing pretty much straight after I'd made my post. I was just confused because you can't use hyphens on the PayPal website, which is why I went and typed in my card number, rather than my account number, which has two hyphens in it.

Basically, all I had to do was remove the hyphens from the number next to "ACCOUNT:" which you can find on the back of your card, put 9000 as the BC number, because the bank I use is PostFinance, and it worked. It took a few days -hence my delayed reply- but everything's in order now. Whatever money I don't spend can be put right back into my bank account.

Might as well post the details for others who may be as clueless about it as I was.
