In the Philippines, in order to get a verified Paypal Account, a MasterCard or Visa Card must be linked to the account. Until then, the money in the account cannot be withdrawn to the local bank. Let me guess, you are probably looking for a way on how to verify Paypal Account using BPI Express Teller Card you currently have.
If you try to check your BPI Express Teller Card, you can find the logos of Express Net, Bancnet and Megalink. These are Philippine-based interbank networks where you can use the BPI Express Teller Card to the establishments affiliated by them. But in order to verify your Paypal Account, you need a card with the MasterCard logo or Visa Card logo printed in it.
I’ve done this a couple of times before and the point is, it is not possible to verify your Paypal Account using BPI Express Teller Card. You can only use this card to withdraw your Paypal funds to your BPI Bank Account. But the thing is, BPI has a card named BPI my ePrepaid MasterCard, a perfect partner for your Express Teller Card. It is not a credit card but it is a reloadable card you can use in online payments and purchases. Since it is a MasterCard, you can use it to verify your Paypal Account!
Until now, I am using the BPI Express Teller Card to receive payments, deposit and withdraw money. And I am using the BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard in my online transactions such as paying bills online. With BPI Online Banking, I can easily reload my ePrepaid Card from the funds in my Express Teller via online money transfer/reload. It works perfectly fine, easy and efficient especially of you are banking online.
So here are the things you have to do:
- Enroll your BPI Express Teller Card in BPI Online Banking.
- Apply for a BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard.
- Verify your Paypal Account using the ePrepaid Card.
Again, it is not possible to verify your Paypal Account using BPI Express Teller Card. Getting the BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard is one of the best solutions regarding this. You can follow the things to do listed above. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment below.
