Late last night, some tweeps posted about Mauritius being in the list of countries to which you can actually send money. After a quick verification, Mauritius was indeed right there, since how long, I really don’t know.
Update (May 2015) : Several users have reported that it is now possible to withdraw money from Mauritius.
Update (May 2012) : After posting this page, @Inf checked too but finally came to the conclusion that Receiving from Mauritius is still not possible. I repeat : Receiving money to Mauritius is not possible. In fact, the wordings used on their page is somewhat misleading. It should be “Send money to Anyone in the Growing Paypal Network from these countries“.
@Joshua was indeed right!
So, now editing this post to get things clear unfortunately.
This is going to change a hell lot of things. So many people are waiting for this because, it was impossible for Mauritians accounts to receive money through Paypal. Hence, as from now, you can ask people to pay you directly through Paypal and normally, you should be able to include Paypal buttons onto your e-commerce web site. I think that this piece of information is worth sharing too : As per Paypal’s web site, withdrawals are not permitted yet with these Mauritian accounts, not yet. Also, do take some time to go through Paypal’s web site and read about commission fees that might be applicable.
I am currently trying to see if this really works. I will update this post if there’s any progress.
If anyone has additional info, don’t hesitate!
Have a nice week!
