Linking EON (Debit Card) to Paypal

Why do you need a Debit/Credit Card to link to Paypal? That’s the same question I’ve been asking over and over again.

Yes, you can send and receive money to and from other paypal accounts even if your account hasn’t been verified yet. But you can see somewhere in between the “withdrawing” tab that you need to have a verified account to lift your limit. (sorry wasn’t able to take a snapshot).

I came to the conclusion that in order to withdraw money to your bank account after you’ve reached $500 (as your limit) you have to have your account verified to be able to continuously withdraw. That’s the very reason why I opened an EON (Visa) Debit Account in Unionbank.

I can’t stand my Paypal account status shouting at my face GET VERIFIED!

  • When you click on the Get Verified, it will take you to a page where it will ask for your debit card account number. You can see the digits in front of your card and you enter it there.
  • It will also ask for the expiration date of the card. It should also be there in front of your card, and then the CVV which is the 3-digit number at the back of your EON debit card. (Process and number location are the same with credit cards).
  • After filling up the fields, it will take you to this page which wants you to confirm your debit (visa) card linking to paypal:

Linking EON Visa card to Paypal

I went to to register for a Visa Electron CyberAccount* so I won’t need to go back to the bank. But since the page is under construction, I called up their hotline number (84-186) and told them that I couldn’t register online because the page is under maintenance.

The customer rep asked for my account details and gave me the 4-digit paypal code that I needed to link into my paypal account instead and would be charged $1.95** for it. Yey! My paypal account is verified! So I guess the perks of having your paypal account verified is sending unlimited money using paypal. ^^

*You don’t actually need to have a CyberAccount. It’s just for convenience.
**I deposited Php100 (roughly $2) in my EON account beforehand.

  1. hay naku fedhz!

    sakit sa ulo nyang eon card na yan! sobrang hassle!!! after four months ko pa na-figure out kung paano kasi the union bank staff wasnt explaining everything to me.

    will do a blog about this. hay..

    1. hehe. sige. intay ko ung blog mo about this. nagets mo ba kung pano ko ginawa? san ka nahirapan? Si Mike din nag-guide sakin kase last year kumuha sya diba. kaya mejo madali na lang for me. ^^

  2. ang bait nman nun Crep who helped you. i guess it depends sa branch.☺ i got my card after 3 weeks yta and the reps were helpful nman in guiding me but they did say that that was as far as they can help cuz i’ve to do everything else online.

    i didn’t have a hard time applying for my EON, too, but when it was time to verify it and stuff, i had to work on my own. good thing i was able to do it without any hassle. ☺

  3. make sure sa totoong Unionbank branch kayo mag-apply…

    baka itanong nyo merong bang “fake” na UnionBank branches? heheheh


    basa! basa!

    ang mga “fake” na UnionBank branches ay yung mga acquired banks ng Union tulad ng iBank.

    bakit naman nasabi ko na “fake” sila?

    kasi ang mga staff nila walang alam sa Eon-Paypal…hehehe

    ang mga may alam lang ay yung mga original branches ng Union at hindi yung mga acquired lang…

    ooopppsss… mahaba na comment ko ..bwahahahah!!!

  4. congrats and you are already a Verified PayPal user mommy fedhz. you need to receive and send money. the process of verifying is quite easy pero to get the ExPuse code or confirmation code which paypal sent to ur credit card takes some time. minsan pa, you can’t view it online so call the credit card company, you must! hehe!

  5. teka nalito ako bigla.. kaya mgtatagalog ako.. pede naman pala tagalog bat ba ako ng papakalabaw kaka ingles.. hmp

    ah so ibig sabihin nito lift na ang sending limit mo na 500? at pede mo na ako padlahan ng 1k dollars? yahooo!!

    all in all, ilang weeks inabot mo to apply and to have your paypal account verified?
