How To: Link Your BPI Card To Paypal

Friday, March 31, 2017

I first started using Paypal around 2008 when I was in college. I was tutoring Japanese and Korean students at night or whenever I was free so I could help my parents with my schooling and other miscellaneous expenses. During my 4th year at the university, I'm proud to say I didn't ask for any more money from my parents. And that went on until I moved out and started working. Paypal played a huge role in that part of my life. Wow, this is starting to sound like a sponsored post, haha! But to be clear, this isn't! I just really want to share how helpful it has been for me to have a platform where foreign employers can send me money. 

Anywaaaay, back then, Unionbank EON was the only card you can link to your account, as far as I know. Eventually, more cards were integrated with Paypal but I wasn't updated with this information anymore since I stopped teaching in 2010 and started focusing on my day job. I wasn't using my Paypal account until early last year when I started earning from this blog. I revisited my account and had to unlink my EON card since I wasn't using it anymore. I have my primary savings in a BPI Express Teller account so that's what I linked to my account. And today, I'll be teaching you to do the same! 

1. Login to your Paypal account. 

2. On the home page, scroll down and look for "Add a bank account or credit card".

3. Then, click "Link a bank account." 

4. Fill out the required information. In case your looking for BPI's information, here's what you need to provide. 

  • Bank Name: Bank of the Philippine Islands
  • Bank Code (9 digits): 010040018
  • Account Number: (Found at the back of your BPI Express Teller card)
  • Re-enter Account Number:

5. And, you're done! Make sure you link an active card, and also make sure you're putting the correct information. Your name has to match 

Just be cautious of all the details you put in. As mentioned in the screenshot above, there's a P250 return fee if the name you register doesn't match the one on your bank account. And that's it! You're all set to earning moolah from your blog. This is also useful for online purchases since some online merchants prefer Paypal as their payment method. Up next on this series would be withdrawing money from your Paypal account. I'll be keeping you guys posted. Have an awesome week!
