Hi there. Well, the important reminders in doing your transaction in paypal is your personal information should be the same as your bank account or credit card. They are very strict to that! It says that If you don't have credit card you can use a debit card which is much safe. And If they check that your personal account and card is the same information you will get verified. Maybe that's the only problem you had there my friend. I never had a problem with my Eon card, I see to it that every details is the same, even the bank account number, name and address. You should double check it first so you won't waste money too. I hope you this will help you.

if the middle initial is not asked for by paypal, then don't worry about it. it means that there is no need for it.

Your Eon Cyber account can be used both as credit card (for verification and payment purposes) and as a bank account (for receiving of funds). If you only registered your eon account as a credit card and you have not entered any bank account in your profile, then Paypal can't transfer your fund. You have to add your eon account as your bank account too. Do not remove your eon account as your credit card, just register the same as your bank account. Make sure though that your eon account is already verified (meaning you already provided Paypal the code they asked for the credit card verification)before adding it as your bank account.

our friend here is really finding it so difficult to establish the right link between her bank account and paypal account in order to be able to withdraw her money. by now, i believe that everything is clear enough. it is sad to note that she has lost some money on her tries to create the proper link. i really hope that at last she can establish it properly by now.

i am sorry for butting in. i really wanted to skip this discussion this time. i believe that there is nothing that i can help you with as i have not encountered this problem yet about collecting my paypal money. i left this at the hands of my daughter and so far, there is no problem that has come forth. i just can't help myself, i wanted to know whether your question has been ably solved at last. i really don't know why i am so concerned with you. i am already thinking of contacting my daughter so you can have a direct conversation with her via chatting through friendster. she is very helpful, you know. i am happy to know that there is a post which has given you all the information. if ever you will still be encountering problems, send her a message through the message board. it is easier to resolve problems that way. better than posting a discussion.

I am not and eon card holder. But I think I can help you. As you can see you have two options to withdraw your money. One is to use the eon card and the other one is to use a bank account. From what I understand you have tried to withdraw your money from paypal and transfer it to your eon card. That can be done. I was just wondering why it did not work well for you. Your second option actually is to add a bank account. Make sure that your account name on the bank matches your paypal account name. You will have to encode your bank account number. If everything matches, then it will be okay. You can now then withdraw money from your paypal, just choose bank, instead of the card. This is also much better since they only charge 50 pesos for every withdrawal regardless of the amount you withdraw. From what I understand if you withdraw it and have it transferred to your eon card the charge is somewhat higher. In both cases, make sure the account name matches with you paypal account name, otherwise, you will then be charge again for decline transaction. Goodluck!

my problem is that in my paypal, is just my first name and last name, in my eon card, there is a middle initial.

That could probably be the reason why. Perhaps the best thing to do is use the bank account option in your withdrawal. From what I understand you are from the Philippines right? Most of the commercial banks are ready for paypal. If you have a bank account already and it matches the name in your paypal then you can use it. In my case, I am using metrobank. Hope you will be able to resolve the problem soon.

I do not know what a eon card is. This is what I do when tranfering money from my paypal. I have a bank account and transfer the money into that. I think it is a lot easier that way. No fees either. But I am not sure what you are doing adding it to a card. To me that is not something I would do, unless it was a paypal card that you can apply for as well. Sorry I could not be of more help. Good luck with this and happy mylotting to you.

Your situation scares me to get an eon account. I was actually about to get an eon account yesterday but I don't know why I didn't push through getting it. have you successfully transferred your money from your paypal to your eon account?

the problem is with me, not with eon card. if i only know how to transfer it, probably, i won't encounter any problems from withdrawing my money.

i'm using eon too in withdrawing my paypal money and so far, all is running well. i got the money in about 3-5 days.by the way, did you use your eon card to become a paypal verified?because i used my eon card too to get verified..Make sure that the address you have provided at paypal is the same address with that of your eon card

I am using also Unionbank Eon Visa debit card to withdraw funds from my Paypal account. So far, I got no problem with the system. Transfer of funds usually is consummated within 2-3 days and the charge is only 50 pesos. I think it has something to do with your Middle Initial. Now, I always advised people to go the bank where they get the Eon to see to it that your problem can be formally remedied.

the bank account number of your eon card is the number below the card..you put that in paypal as the bank account number..the numnber is 12 digits..I always transfer my paypal funds to my eon card and withdraw it
