Like me, I have a Unionbank EON card but my city where I live doesn't have a Unionbank branch. So, it's a hassle to go to another city which is a one-hour travel just to deposit money to my EON account.
So, if you own a Metrobank account, you have the opportunity to avail the great services Paypal offers. Here's a simple guide on how to add or link your Metrobank account to your Paypal account.
Don't worry it's free. Paypal doesn't charge you a cent or a peso from your bank account in linking your Metrobank account.
But take note. This METHOD is LINKING A BANK ACCOUNT (your Metrobank Account) to Paypal Account which allows you to withdraw your funds/money from your Paypal Account to your Metrobank Account.
Take note of that. It allows transfer of money from your Paypal Account to your Metrobank account and not for online purchases or online payments.
Step 1First is you should have a Paypal account. If you don't have, you can register or sign-up on Paypal's website (https://www.paypal.com).
Log-in to your Paypal account. Go to Banks and cards >
Under Bank accounts, click the Link a bank account button [+].
You will be redirected to another page where you are going to fill-out a form (Add a bank account in Philippines).
Enter the following details in the fields:
- Country: Philippines
- Name on account: Your name
- Bank name: Metrobank
- Bank code: 010269996
- Account number: your Metrobank account number
- Re-enter account number: enter again your Metrobank account number
Then click the Continue button.
You will be notified to review your bank account information. As you can read in the screenshot below, "Please make sure your information is correct and complete. Otherwise, transfers to and from your Paypal account will be returned. A return fee of P250.00 PHP will apply, and your bank may charge additional fees".
After careful checking of the bank account information, click the Save button.
As you can read in the screenshot below: "You can now transfer funds to and from your Paypal account to your bank account in Philippines".
You will receive a message to your email that confirms the successful linking of your Metrobank account to your Paypal account.
Are you having any problems linking your Metrobank account to your Paypal account?
