For many freelancer and bloggers here in Kenya, it has been a nightmare transferring your money from Paypal to a bank account here in Kenya. Recently Equity Bank Group launched the epal service,where it cooperates with First National Bank (FNB) in the United States and so you do not have to worry about opening an account as what Paypal demanded earlier. The only demerit is that you have to be an Equity bank customer and be operating an account with them since they will be accessing your database to verify your details.So what are the steps to withdraw from your Paypal to equity bank account?
