Is there a way to get the refund directly to my credit card? I'd like to avoid giving money for free to mr Munsk for transfering refund money to the place of origin, if possible.

F**k Paypal. The americans is using it to harvest personal info for surveillance purpose. I currently tried to transfer the refund money to my bank account, and of course, that didn't work without further ADO. It ended up that my PayPal account was locked and I was forced to disclose a variety of personal info, including photo identification.

Don't know how the PayPals security systems have changed over they years, but when I started using PayPal, all I had to do was to make $1 deposit to my PayPal account with credit card and they left pin code as message under the transaction on my CC bill. After I had entered the pin to PayPal and most of restrections were lifted.

@avhakola, please notice this is not about limitations but costs for transfering money from the paypal account to a bank account (fees)

@tortoisedoc for me it hasn't cost anything in the past. The exact same amount has appeared in my finnish bank account that has been reduced from my PayPal balance and before accepting the transfer it says 0€ for the fees. And I was previously commenting about the photo ID part by @eson, not the fees.

@avhakola Paypal's exchange rates are notoriously terrible (or at least used to be), so even if there technically aren't any fees, you'll get bummed out of money when ever you transfer from one currency to the other and have paypal do the conversion instead of your bank/CC company. Alas, I don't think there's any other option in this instance, unlike with CC payments through PP.

I do not support this decision, but Jolla has stated the following, which clearly means no (blog FAQ April 21):

"PayPal is the service Jolla will be using to execute payments. The only exception to this is if you reside in a country which does not allow PayPal payments from abroad."

I guess their decision is tied to the fact that the payment went through indiegogo in the first place, thus in order to have a paypal/cc refund, it would need to come from there.
