ABA and PayPal, routing number needed

Post by Ravensnest »

I need to pull cash out of my ABA account and put it into my PayPal account. It seems I can only do this with a routing number which I cannot find.

Does anyone know it? Ty in advance for assistance.

I believe Routing Numbers (ABA Routing Numbers) are only used in the US, so you don't have one with ABA Bank, or with any bank in Cambodia, and probably won't be able to transfer funds into your PayPal account.

More info directly from ABA Bank about international bank transfers (wire transfers), and you will see that a routing number is not mentioned anywhere:

You can only use a bank account in the same country as the address connected to your PayPal account.

You will have to withdraw the PayPal to your American account and then do an international transfer from your bank - or withdraw the cash from an ATM and deposit it into your Cambodian bank account.

Thanks GM. I read a thread from 3.2018 of folks being able to move funds from ABA to their PayPal account, but not vice a versa.

Anyone know how I can do that?

That's not even what I'm trying to accomplish, that's the opposite in fact.

as noted above, routing numbers are USA only.
international wires use SWIFT codes
paypal:

I need to make my car payment to Huntington Bank. That is what I'm trying to accomplish. I normally pay with my US bank info, but there is not enough funds in that account currently.

I am here not to answer the question, but i do come here for sharing my experience.
This problem get me 2 weeks to get the solution, and i wanna say it's very damn hard to get it done. Let's hear my story.

I am working for a company in the USA, but my home is in Cambodia. My USA accountant department tell me to send them the bank info, so they can wire me the salary. My first try is ABA bank.
1. I request the beneficiary detail, but in there, no have Bank Routing Number (ABA Number or ABA#) at all, which is the most wanted info of other detail, but i cannot get it.
2. I sent many emails to ABA Bank, they just say: they have only SWIFT code, no ABA# (I think this is true, ABA bank in Cambodia they don't have ABA#, but their intermediary bank do have one, you will know at the end why i think like this)
3. I got stuck here, then i search other bank, because i don't know what to do beside searching.
4. This is the day 4th, I decide to chat to ABA official Facebook Chat & they tell me like this:



=> They unable to tell me

#. [Let get to the key point] many days pasted, I try to contact the ACELEDA bank, then they print me the BENEFICIARY DETAIL. in there, the ACELEDA's intermediary bank was listed with the ABA number like: WELL FARGO BANK (with ABA#), Standard Chartered Bank (with ABA#), which i can use, for more detail pls contact ACELEDA.

Now my USA department be able to wire my salary to my ACELEDA account. In my opinion, USA & Canada bank, they use Bank Routing Number, also this ABA# is the problem for people in Cambodia to do the transaction.
Mission completed!

Good luck,
LEEX
