Sentence: Do the rules of my country permit international payment with/from PayPal account?

My question: Which preposition would be grammatically correct to use in the sentence? With or from?

*I'm pretty confused. First I intuitively selected "from". But on proofread I feel it could be "with" also. On further researching the use and meaning of both these prepositions, my inclination for "with" has increased. However, I'm still not 100 % sure. Can any teacher tell me what preposition should come there?

Thanks and regards. :)

I'd say 'Do the rules of my country permit international payment by PayPal?

Small but important comment: "payment from a PayPal account"
