Unfortunately no. It's only possible if your account is based in a fully supported country. Payoneer seems to work just fine in Sri Lanka.

No you cannot send or receive money via PayPal. After tackling education to make Sri Lanka have one of the highest literacy rates, the government then wants to make IT/Computers the next thing yet hamper any progress with silly rules that prevent us from progressing in the online world. So yes, PayPal is blocked because the government doesn't trust us (or want us to advance!)

No. You cannot.
However, there’s a way to workaround the restriction. Create a new PayPal account on PAYPAL with country as PHILIPPINES with all your original details. Then add your visa/master card and transact through that.

I believe there’s a charge of 5$ per withdrawal.

Open account via: https://www.paypal.com/ph/home
