Ebay’s online payment service PayPal said today it would double the number of employees in Asia Pacific from 1,000 currently to more than 2,000 by the end of the year.

PayPal said it plans to add more than 100 new jobs at its international headquarters in Singapore. New jobs will be located at all seven offices including Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan. For its Singapore business headquarters, PayPal will be seeking Singapore-based people with background in technology, product development, infrastructure design, risk and engineering.

Farhad-Irani-PayPal "While PayPal’s growth in Asia Pacific to date has largely been driven by our cross border business, we fully expect the domestic business in many of our Asian markets to explode in the coming years," said Farhad Irani, vice president of PayPal Asia Pacific.

"Our success in the region will continue to rely on partnering with merchants, financial services companies and local governments to deliver the right services for our customers."

PayPal says it processed more than $6 billion of total payment volume in Asia Pacific in 2009, an increase of 38 percent from 2008.

As part of its plans to grow across Asia Pacific, the company also announced the PayPal mobile payment software development kit (SDK) will be available to developers in the region.

    How about getting a fellow from srilanka?
    Paypal is currently not available (sending disabled) in Srilanka.
    Srilanka is a potential market and lot of internet transactions.
    Why they still not lifting the ban on Srilanka.
    Even business users can not make payments through Paypal to another Paypal account.
    Only can load with a credit card.

    I am a legitimate SEO consultant and all around virtual assistant from the Philippines. However, the payments from my employers from the US and UK are canceled by Paypal.

    My employer said that Paypal suspects that transaction is fraud. Is sending 500-800USD per transaction considered fraud?

    This has brought great inconvenience on my business and service. I hope they have better ways to pinpoint who’s fraud or not.

    I would like to know when PayPal (and many other companies) will finally realize that tech support and customer service for their business belongs with the countries of the people using it?
    Are there enough users in the Asia Pacific to warrant this expansion or will more people in the US be getting these people when they call?
    Are there any PayPal tech support or customer service people at all located in the USA? My husband and I find that it’s extremely difficult to deal with someone who uses English as a second language and who is working from a script!
    We have had some issues with PayPal and attempted to resolve them. What would have been a ten minute phone conversation with someone who speaks English and has been well trained took us 1 1/2 hours the other day!
    Cheap labor sometimes costs businesses more money than it’s worth in lost customers and lost revenue!

    Thousands of Pakistanis are waiting for the day when PayPal shall be available in Pakistan – a potential market where thousands of people earn their bread n butter by providing online services/products but this country has long been facing a kind of “racism” in this regard. I am sure paypal may recieve 10,000 to 20,000 signups in a week if it announces the services. Hope n wish that someone realizes the potential soon ….
