Withdrawn 80% of the fund. I’m happy yet sad. Happy because i can finally take much needed rest. Sad when i saw the excessive fees made by paypal (they charged me around 3.5% and the usual forex differential). All in all i lost around 13,000 pesos in fees. That’s a lot of money, almost 3 months of my basic salary. This is the first time paypal charged me for my withdrawn funds from Oanda. The forex differential i can tolerate but not this giving me a double whammy. I have no choice but to withdraw the fund with a bleeding heart (naks!). I emailed paypal and I contested their exuberant fees. Hope i get a refund ($153+).
