A final hurdle regarding the use of the Paypal online payments system has been cleared paving the way for this payments vehicle to be used in Sri Lanka, Central Bank (CB) officials said on Thursday.
They told a media briefing that issues pertaining to the reversal of funds remitted out on Paypal (for example when refunds are made) were cleared, 
PayPal is a US-based global online payments system established in 1998 which is available in 203 countries, including Sri Lanka, and in 26 currencies. - (DE)

    Refunds of the paypal is already active. What is not implemented is remitting of money to Sri Lankan Bank accounts through paypal.

    Paypal won't give full access to us Sri Lankans which in this decade may be the next century. What's to be done? Bare the pain.

    Lorry talk from Sri Lankan politicians and trying to make this country challenge Singapore and Dubai but still the Central Bank of Sri Lanka could not grant full permission for PayPal to operate in Sri Lanka with their full capacity (SL Payment receiving capability).

    I have heard PayPal is going to list Sri Lanka in 2017. Is it true?
