Previously, we discussed how to get verified on Paypal Philippines via Union Bank EON card. On this post, we’ll look into how you can begin using your Paypal account through BPI debit card and avoid the hassle of going to different malls in the Philippines just to shop for your favorite music or games.
Four (4) Things You Should Know About BPI ePrepaid Mastercard.
- First reloadable MasterCard prepaid card in the Philippines. The term reloadable says it all. Unlike with credit cards where there is a tendency that you’ll overspend and reach your limit, you can monitor your budget with ePrepaid MasterCard. Load the amount that you’re going to use.
- Guaranteed 100% approval. One (1) valid ID, card processing charge of P500.00, an initial deposit of P150.00 for Paypal (amount is optional) are all that is required, and you’re good to go!
- No maintaining balance!
- The second debit card in the Philippines that allows Paypal verification. Aside from EON, BPI ePrepaid MasterCard is the only debit card that permits you to confirm Paypal application. As the card is mainly used for outgoing transactions, one downside is, you cannot withdraw Paypal funds into it. However, you can add your local bank account to do withdrawal so it’s still easy-peasy.
