You set up a bank account (like www.bofi.com) where you put your
Paypal $, using bank transfers, which take about 2-3 days.  Or you
get a Paypal debit card and withdraw it that way.

But basically, you want an account where you don't put any other 
money--the problem with authorizing transfers *to* your bank account
from an agency is that the bank will also accept transfers to take 
money *from* your account from that agency as well unless you
make an explicit request in writing that all such transactions have
to be approved by you beforehand.

I have a Paypal debit (gives you 2% back, so you make up some of
that 3% fees), but I also have it linked to a bofi.com account for 
the purposes of being able to do transfers.

The debit only allows you $400/day, but you can transfer any amount
in your Paypal account using the transfer method.
