How to Link Metrobank Account to Paypal Account?

Aren't you aware that you can actually add or link your Metrobank account (atm or passbook) to your Paypal account. You can now avoid the hassle of having a Unionbank EON card. 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. Metrobank has expanding aggressively across the Philippines. Fortunate for me that we have a Metrobank branch in our city. So, if you own a Metrobank account, you have the opportunity to avail the great services Paypal offers.

Hi. Should I include my middle initial for the name on the account? Because I already linked my metrobank atm but after a week metrobank declined the transfer. Thanks.
