I can't verify my Vietcombank account with paypal. Anyone with the same problem could help me?
I was unable to get the 4 digit code to confirm my premier type vietnamese paypal account when I was charged $1.95 on December,7,2012 by paypal. I made one more payment of $1.95 to get another code . However i guess i'm not going to get any bank statement or paper from vietcombank stating the code to verify my paypal account like the last time, and i also seeked help from my issued bank in vietnam but wasnot helpful. Can anyone recommend me other banks in vietnam which work well with paypal because i mostly do my online business through paypal.

Support of Paypal for Vietnamese bank accounts is not good. Previously it was possible to pay but not receive money. Please check if that is still the case!

I suggest that you connect your credit card or open an account in Singapore, Hong Kong instead. My Vietnamese credit cards work fine with Paypal for sending and receiving, but the fees are sometimes unclear.

Don't use Vietcombank for Paypal registration.
Instead of that, open a Visa/Master Card at Eximbank or ACB. Everything will be fine.
