If you encounter a message from Paypal like "The credit card you entered cannot be used for this payment. Please enter a different credit card number.", you might want to try again using a different card. The reasons behind this message is not made clear by Paypal but it appears to be related to Paypal's security & fraud protection system. Another way of working around this is to registered your card with a Paypal account and use the Paypal account to make the payment.
Selecting this payment mode means you have entered the order and want to make the payment to our Singapore bank account directly from another bank account. This option is usually viable only if you have a Singapore Bank account. You can make a direct internet funds transfer or make a funds transfer using an ATM machine.
