Get verified on Paypal by linking your BPI card to your Paypal Account considering the fact that your are banking with BPI (Bank of the Philippine Islands). This is a step by step guide on how to verify Paypal account using BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard.
A verified Paypal account can use all the features of the account without any restrictions or limits on receiving, sending and withdrawing funds. It is really recommended to have your Paypal account verified especially if you’re working online with international clients or doing online business.
Before going on, these are the important things which you should already have or already done:
- Paypal Account
- BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard (How to get BPI My ePrepaid MasterCard)
