I just want to ask how did you transfer your money from PayPal to your UnionBank Eon debit card account. I already earned here in myLot and it's already on my Paypal account. I already opened an account in UnionBank and have my Eon debit card already. My problem is how can I am going to link my UnionBank Eon debit card account to PayPal since it has zero balance now. Did you first deposit a money to it? Because in verifying the card, PayPal will be going to deduct $1.95 from it temporarily, and then return it after the card was been verified. Or you used another card for verification? I need a clarification. Please tell me the procedures that you have been gone.

Hello!First, you should deposit your eon account with P200.00 so that you can successfully link your eon card to paypal. Anyway the P200 will be returned to you after two months in the form of "paypal bonus". Then after you deposit P200, go back to your paypal homepage and link the card, then wait for further notice from paypal. Actually, I only use the eon card to link to paypal but when I withdraw my money from paypal, I used my other bank account with routing number (metrobank)because it has the lowest charge compared to eon-unionbank.

Ok, I will deposit P200 to my Eon account, then I will link it to my Paypal account. I see, so two months is what I need to wait to be able to get back my $1.95. Oh, since metrobank has a lower charge, I'm thinking of opening an account there now. What kind of metrobank card did you use to widthraw? Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

you need to deposit atleast 300 pesos to your debit card to link the Union card to paypal so you can transfer your earnings. it is easy to do that but you need to make sure there is money at your debit card. paypal will ask for your debit card number and you will wait for a week for confirmation. when it is confirmed then you can widrow your earnings from paypal to eon. i have an eon card but i dont use it that much. trasnfer cost 5 dollars and if i trasfer my 10$ and paypal gets 5$ then i can only get 5. i just buy a few things at ebay from my earnings. goodluck with your my friend

Hi mark, I am already a verified Paypal account holder. I verified my account with my Union Bank Debit Card and not an eon Card. You can try to sign-in or register your eon card online if you haven't tried it. Your card has a 16-digit number (VISA) and that number will be the one that you'll use to verify your paypal account. I think you have to get your eon card activated by depositing some money to it. Once you're done, verify your paypal. To finish your verification process, you have to monitor your cyber account to get the paypal code from your unionbank statement. Eon/Union bank website should display your account statement where it shows your previous transactions. Get the code, sign-in to Paypal, enter the paypal code from the statement (online) and your done. Neil

I see, so you use other card for verification. I think I will just use my Eon debit card, but like you said, I should activate it first by depositing money into it. Then I will be able to link it to my PayPal account and it is also the one I will use for verification. Then yes, I should register my Eon account online to be able to monitor it. Thank you for the help. Happy myLotting!

I suggest that for MyLotters who have gathered experiences re pay pal transactions may please answer markmoney's query. The answer is vital for up and coming new members as well as for members who have yet to open a pay pal account like me.

I opened an account there last year and I deposite 350 pesos in that account. it is a requirement by Union bank to put a balance in your money. first, once you have registered for EON, they will sent a mail that your EON account has been processed, then wait for a day for you to apply for an EON internet account, that's right you still have to register to their website online..but you don't to deposit there, only when you registered in the bank. once you got the mail, register write the pin code, and make sure you make and remember your transaction number. then, if that's done, insert your EON account info to paypal and send the paypal code to your EON account. from there, you will see the 4 digit code and type it in paypal. so, that's it. it takes a while so just wait for the mail first.

if you have a credit card I suggest you used that to verify your account, if not you need to fund your debit card and yes they will be deducting some amount from the card. But I have a suggestion for you, link your eon account as a bank account, and withdraw the amount to the bank and not the debit card, since the charge is cheaper if you use a bank account as a withdrawal method. it only costs Php 50.00 if less than 7k and free if 7k above but a charge to the debit/credit card costs $5.00, but I maybe wrong maybe you can double check paypal fees. but this is what i've been doing to withdraw my paypal. If you need assistance regarding inputting your eon account to you paypal message me and I'll try to help you out if I can.

Hello markmoney. I guess all the information you needed to get your paypal verified was already given by spoiledbrat. I actually did exactly what spoiledbrat said. I already verified my paypal account. When I aplly for my EON card it took me three days before I get my card. When I got it I deposited P200 and wait another day before I did the verification process. Actually I also posted discussion here on where can I get my expuse number during the time that I'm in the process of my verification. And guess what it's also spoiledbrat who gave me the numbers that I needed. And that's why I also gave him/her my BR mark too. Now I have withdrawn twice from my paypal account to my EON card. Not a big money but really nice to get my earnings from my online sites. When I withdraw it usually takes 3 to 5 days before I can received the money to my EON card. Hope you will get to cashout your online earnings soon. Happy mylotting.

you can use EON card to get verified via paypal.deposit at least 200 pesos to your eon card account first then, link your eon card to your paypal.wait for few days and paypal will be sending the code to your EON cyber account..by the way, make sure you have registered your EON card online first.

All I know PayPal does the deducting from your EON account which consequently has money...(granting you deposited an amount when you applied for it to activate the account). Your EON account should be the account you enrolled at Paypal. In transfering an amount to EON, I suppose you inquire at Paypal or at Unionbank itself. I have just tried EON as "larder" or monies for transactions I do online, which Paypal facilitates. I do not deposit a big amount to avoid the risk of Internet theft..

pay pal make there own verify deposits. then you go back to pay pal and log them into pay pal and they say if they actually match what they put in your account. if they do then it is verified. they put .08 and .14 in my account and I had a negative balance! And it was still verified.
