Paypal to BPI money trasfer process

This hub contains important information regarding Paypal and BPI – a local bank here in the Philippines.

Before we begin, here is what to expect from this Paypal BPI Tutorial and Guide

  • Withdrawing Paypal funds to BPI (a local bank here in Philippines)
  • Tips, things to remember, and requirements when withdrawing Paypal funds
  • How to verify and fund your Paypal account using BPI (including tips and things to know when doing so)

It is also important to note that the steps mentioned here is exclusive only for BPI. HOWEVER – the steps may also be applicable to other local Philippine banks such as Metrobank, BDO, Unionbank, etc... Of course there might be some minor difference like bank routing code (9 digit bank code), number of processing days, processing fees, etc...

Lastly, since we are on the topic of withdrawing money, this post will also briefly discuss some methods on how I put funds or deposit / transfer money to my Paypal account.

Paypal to BPI Requirements (withdrawing Paypal to BPI requirements)

A lot of Filipino Paypal users may not realize this but they can transfer their Paypal funds to physical cash by transferring it to their local bank.

The only thing stopping them is concern or worry that the transfer may not be successful or an error may occur which may lead to the possibility of the money being lost in cyberspace.

So before withdrawing Paypal funds to a BPI savings account, be sure that the following requirements are met:

  • Correct bank routing code – also called 9-digit bank code (please be advised that this is not the card number nor the account number)
  • Registered name with Paypal must match with the one on the bank account
  • Account with the bank must be active or working
  • Paypal account must be verified
  • The savings or ATM account to which money will be transferred to MUST first be ADDED to your Paypal account (see steps below)

Once the above requirements are accomplished, the user may now proceed with the funds transfer / withdrawal.

Steps on how to add or link BPI savings account to your Paypal account:

  • Log in to your verified Paypal account
  • Click the Profile menu which is part of the “My Account” section
  • A drop-down box will appear – choose “Add / Edit Bank Account”
  • Supply in the necessary information of BPI savings (ATM) account

FYI please that you will withdraw your Paypal funds to a savings or ATM account – and NOT your credit card account

Steps on how to withdraw Paypal funds to BPI –

Withdrawing funds from Paypal to BPI (or any other local banks for that matter) is relatively easy because this option is easily viewable / accessible once a user logs in to his or her Paypal account.

The “Withdraw Button” is along the “Add Funds” and “History” button.

After clicking the said button, the user will now be directed to a page wherein the person must choose whether to withdraw the money to the bank account or to a registered Paypal card. For our tutorial, we will choose the former.

After selecting the “withdraw to bank option” you will be directed to the following page (refer to picture below)

Even though it is possible to fund your Paypal account with your credit card, bulk of my Paypal funds ($290) are coming from other online sources like HubPages, oDesk, and YoHoHoN

As can be seen on the photo above, I am withdrawing $290 to my BPI ATM account.

Be sure to double check the important fields like amount to be withdrawn, appropriate bank, and if the last four digits corresponds to the last four digit of the bank account.

After double checking the mentioned fields, proceed by clicking on the “Submit” button.

Review your withdrawal section –

Before finalizing the transaction, Paypal will ask you to verify again if all information are correct. Below is a screen shot sample of the particular page.

This portion is the last chance that you can edit the transaction. Be sure that all info are correct before proceeding.

Your withdrawal request is being processed –

This screenshot is the last portion of the transaction. This part will ask you if you want to visit the details of the withdrawal request or if you would like to go back to your account overview page.

Transaction details –

If you choose the first option, here is a screen shot sample of the transaction details.

How to know if Paypal to BPI is successful?

To know if Paypal to BPI fund transfer is successful, simply check your bank balance or ask for a copy of the statement balance.

As can be seen in the photo below, there is a 150 pesos banking fee for the transaction.

If you will notice on the first picture, the original amount supposed to be given by Paypal has been deducted by 150 pesos and it took three days to process - which is actually quite fast and hassle free.


By the way, the transaction will fall under the remittance category.

Tips and advice on how to have a successful Paypal to BPI transfer:

  • Do the transfer on a Monday. As much as possible avoid the transaction process pass over the weekends or holiday
  • Experiment first with a small amount and see if it will be successful
  • Take details / pictures (screenshot) of the transaction.

How to fund and put money to Paypal

There are many ways on how to put money to Paypal. Listed below are my favorite ones:

  • BPI Credit Card

Paypal and BPI credit cards

As mentioned numerous times on this post, BPI savings and ATM accounts are mainly used to withdraw money from Paypal.

However, BPI credit cards are used to:

  • Verify a Paypal account
  • Used for online purchase when it has been linked already
  • Fund a paypal account

Adding, linking, and verifying Paypal with a BPI credit card

When you used your BPI credit card to verify your Paypal account, it will automatically be linked / added to your Paypal account.

Below are the steps on how to do so:

  • Log in to your PayPal account.
  • Click “Profile” (described on the earlier section of this article)
  • Select “Add / Edit Credit Card”
  • Choose the appropriate card type (Mastercard or Visa depending on your credit card)
  • Enter necessary details
  • Follow on-screen instructions

When the above steps are completed, Paypal will:

  • Charge 150 pesos which will reflect on the billing statement (this amount will be refunded by Paypal)
  • This is actually a code that must be inputted to finalize linking the credit card and completing the process.
  • The code can be distinguished with the prefix “PP” (this step is also mentioned on Paypal’s instruction page)

Final tips and things to remember

We will end this tutorial article with some last tips and things to remember when using BPI credit card to link / verify your Paypal account:

  • BPI e-creditcard can be used (BPI e-Creditcard is BPI’s way of dedicating a credit card solely for online purchases. Anyone one can get this as long they have a primary credit card)
  • BPI prepaid credit cards can also be used. But in doing so, make sure that there is a 150 balance on the BPI prepaid credit card
  • To view the statement balance of the prepaid credit card and retrieve the code, the owner must enroll the account on BPI’s online portal or call the customer service number
  • It is actually more advisable to use a prepaid credit card to ensure that you stay within your budget
  • In regard to the bullet directly above, I put a cap or limit on my e-creditcard to prevent possible insurmountable charges

UPDATE as of September 19, 2018

It is now possible to verify a PayPal account using Gcash and RCBC. Kindly see the links below:

      Hi Angelika Salvador --

      That could be a possible reason. To isolate, you can try withdrawing to Gcash if it would be successful. Here are the steps http://mixjikz.blogspot.com/2017/02/how-to-withdra...

      If it pushes through, then the name mismatch might be the culprit

      Hi Mandirigma --

      The 9 digit bank code is also called the bank routing code.

      As for the ATM, it cannot be used to verify a Paypal account. Refer to the link at the bottom/ending portion of the post to use Gcash to verify your Paypal account

      Hi I hope youre still active.

      I received an email from Paypal saying ACH Withdrawal Denied Incorrect Bank Information.

      When i added a bank account. I only entered my first name and last name cause theres not really a middle name in my paypal account. But when i applied for the bank there is. So im wondering if thats why the reason.

      Also, when i linked the bank to my paypal. It says checking. And theres no way to change it to savings.

      I hope you can help me. I thought when the transaction is marked completed means it was successful. I was charged a total of 600 pesos because I made two transaction.

      Hey guys/gals, sorry for the late reply. Quite busy this BER months

      Hi Marie -- Yup, each withdrawal transaction will cost 150. But I think there's a minimum withrawal amount though. I'm not familiar with Kaya but it may as long as it is a BPI savings account. However, you may also opt to use GCash instead. I posted a complete guide above for such inquiries :)

      Hi JB -- Hmmm, as far as I know, BPI debit cards cannot be used to verify a PayPal unverified account

      Hi diel river -- Kindly see the guide above. It should answer your inquiries

      Hi kenj -- Am not familiar with Landbank. You may use GCash (complete guide posted above) or you may opt another bank like RCBC

      Hi imsouj -- Sorry but I'm quite confused. You mentioned successful but the money did not arrived in your BPI account? Have you been informed that it is successful?

      Hi Hulyo -- It has been 5 days since your inquiry, has it arrived by now?

      Hi Ivy -- Many users appeared to have encountered the same. Kindly see the informative comment of Gab Gamboa below

      Hi, I successfully linked my BPI savings to Paypal, when I WD it was rejected due to "invalid bank info" so I was charged (250p) + (50p)processing fee. Of course I am sure my info matched until I found out that in Paypal my bank shows Checking instead of Savings. There is no option to choose between savings or checking it also didn't ask at first when I am trying add my bank to choose savings or checking, it was set to checking automatically I think that's causing the problem. ANy idea how to change checking to savings? Thanks a lot :-)

      Hi Jaye - the one needed is the account number and not the card number

      Hi Bob - did you put any special characters or numbers?

      Hi Jun - the 150 charge-back is only for first time verification. However, for every withdrawn amount, there is a corresponding service fee

      Hi Serra - thanks for the info. Did you use the debit card to verify your PP account? Did you receive the expuse code?

      Hi Giyang - I don't think that's possible

      Hi Min - Yup. However, if you are withdrawing over 7K, the 50 peso fee is waived

      Hi Ryline - uh oh! It might be a good idea to use your personal account

      Hi Earl - Did you give it a shot?

      Hi Kristin - I am not familiar with Kaya Savings. Is that BPI?

      Hi Mae - it is indicated in the post

      Hi Antonio - to verify your PP account or to withdraw money to?

      Hi Elfin - I used my personal account. I don't think the second one is a wise idea

      Hi Aj - depending on the Debit Card

      Hi Shan - are you going to use a Mastercard?

      Hi Pondoc - it probably failed

      Hi Charles - are you going to use it to verify your PP account?

      Hi Tonyboy - I don't think passbooks are accepted

      Hey! I just want to share my experienced. I hope it can help. You need a two BPI Cards a Debit Card and my e prepaid Card. The Debit Card, You should enroll it first through Bpi express online. Then, you add the my eprepaid card account. After that you need load to link the card to paypal. But they will ask you the 4 digit code to confirm or verify your card link to paypal.

      And now I am still waiting for the verification code. I also emailed the bpiexpressonline for a 4 digit code.

      Thank you.

I would like to ask what is the account number (1-16 DIGITS) that paypal is asking. because on my BPI Easy Savers Account (BPI Debit Card) it shows at the back-which is the account number only 10 Digits only in this sequence 1234-1234-12... however the card number at the front shows 16 digits but it is the card number not the account and has different numbers too... which number should I use?? thank you.

      Hi Paulo -

      Many users experienced the same situation.

      Hi Jhon -

      If the transaction was reversed, it might mean that transactions on the said card is not allowed.

      Hi mark -

      The bank code might indicate bank routing code.

      i just wanted to ask if its possible or does PayPal accept BPI Express Teller International Debit Card, but it doesn't have a Master card or Visa Card logo, but a Cirrus logo instead. Because i have once tried to transfer my PayPal funds to this ATM card but it has been 4 days and there is no money in my bank account. And they also reversed the transaction and sent back my money to my PayPal account. So i'm wondering if they accept this type of debit card. I also wanted to try it again withdrawing my funds to the bank account but i wanted to know those things first because they might charge me 250 pesos if an error occurs again. Thanks and I'll be waiting for a quick response. :)

      Hi PayPalNewbie,

      Were you able to successfully linked your BPI Savings Account to your PayPal?

      The checking account happens to me too. It would be wise to transfer a small amount first and see if it will push through.

      Although, there would be a processing fee, that small amount will be worth it for a peace of mind for a successful trial transaction :)

      I've tried to withdraw my funds from PayPal to my BPI but I haven't pushed through with it because the account in the confirmation screen says that it's a Checking Account. Thing is, my BPI account is a Savings Account type. I haven't completed the withdrawal yet as I'm afraid this might cause my money to get lost. Can you please let me know how to change it from Checking to Savings?

It may be available sooner, once we know the transaction went smoothly." I feel worried about this.

I added a BPI bank account in Paypal, I put the card number that is the 16 numbers in front of my atm card unto the bank account. Did I do it right? Or should I put the 10 numbers at the back? I am worried now because I had transferred some Paypal funds on that no. and I don't know if I can cancel or refund it or will it bounce back to my Paypal account. Please help.

      Hi, I was wondering when my BPI account became a checking account in Paypal when it should be a savings account. Are they the same? What could have been wrong? As I linked my BPI, I don't recall it has options if it's a savings or checking or current. If it has, I would have chose savings then. Later did I know as I submitted my withdrawal request then the checking account appeared.

      If you followed this tutorial, you should have no problems transferring your Paypal funds to BPI :)

      Hi KBD,

      I'm not sure I follow you. Basically, your flow is the following:

      BPI MORE FUN PREPAID VISA CARD to PAYPAL ACCOUNT --- to PAYPAL --- to BPI SAVINGS ACCOUNT?

      Hi Cherith,

      I think the one provided to you is the swift code

      Hi Aya,

      Simply open a savings account at BPI. Link that one to Paypal, and when successful, you may now transfer your Paypal funds to that BPI savings account

      Hi Twix,

      I think that one is a BPI ATM card for a savings account. If so, you cannot use it to verify your Paypal nor use it for funding.

      Hi Diana,

      To clarify, you used a savings account or a checking account? I think checking accounts are not good

      Hi Rose,

      Paypal states that it the names should match

      Hi Koi,

      I think that is an option for users. Mine is not for business

      Hi Jenny,

      If the transaction will fail, Paypal would inform you. If it has been too long already, send them an email if the transaction pushed through or otherwise.

      Hi Paolo,

      That's usually the case. Check you savings account on the 3rd day and after.

      Hi! I have a card with BPI, and that is the BPI Express Teller card which is the blue card that has the letters "EPS" written on the lower right side of the card. This one has no CVC, but it is a debit card that was given to me upon opening an account in BPI. I am planning to link my BPI bank account to Paypal, since I do not have a credit card. Do you think that my BPI savings account can be used for funding my Paypal account?

      Hopefully next week. This is my first time transferring Paypal funds to a local bank account, I'm hoping that it will be successful and will encounter no errors. *crossing fingers*

      Hi NS5Dev,

      That's interesting. Hope some readers who did so would share their experience.

      Hi BeriAckerman,

      Yes you can.

      The ePrepaid Card is use for verifying your account and for online purchases.

      The BPI ATM Card (assuming it is a savings account) is used for transferring your Paypal funds to that particular account.

      Hi tax-free-lancer,

      Who's Roberts?

      Hi Chamie,

      There are slight changes but the essence is still the same.

      Hi Riri,

      The email verification is different from the actual verification. The former is just to ensure that noone is spamming by making lots of paypal account.

      What's paymaya?

      Hi Arvilyn,

      Have the funds arrived already?

      Hi!

      This is according to a PayPal Consumer Support Specialist I’ve spoken to.

      Your bank account doesn’t necessarily need to be confirmed and it is not necessary as well for you to link a card for bank confirmation. Confirming a bank is only applicable for US PayPal users, for them to be able to pull funds from the bank.

      For linking a card, they ask you to link a card for online transactions and payments since the only allowed funding source for your payments are PayPal balance and cards.

      For Philippine PayPal accounts, even if your account does not have a credit card, you can still receive payments and withdraw the money to your bank even pay using the money on your PayPal balance.

      To verify the PayPal account which will lift your withdrawal limit, that’s the time that they will require to verify your PayPal account by linking and confirming a card.

And if it isnt, will my paypal account gets verified if I connect my paymaya visa card with it? It's currently connected to my old paypal account. I haven't tried withdrawing (but no problem sending money) since I haven't linked it to a bank account yet (planning to get one asap). Will it get verified? Hope to hear from you soon.

      I tried withdrawing but i had a problem with my name. Or account number of bpi

      How will i know my bpi name?

      Hello Dear Readers,

      So sorry for the late reply (busy days). Anyway, I'll try to assist in anyway I can.

      Mary Ruth,

      I don't think PayPal offers any type of card. To withdraw your money from PayPal, you need to (a) verify your account first (using a credit card with a Master or Visa logo); (b) once verified, you may now add your BPI savings account; (c) once added, you can now withdraw Paypal funds to that account

      Jose,

      Interesting. Have you already received your money?

      Marianne,

      You can only use that SA to withdraw from your Paypal funds. But you cannot use it to verify your Paypal account

      Say,

      Try changing your name first. Names on both should match each other.

      Christian,

      Information must be complete

      PJ,

      Interesting and thanks for sharing

      Gab Gamboa,

      Divine,

      Yes. You don't need a dollary account and any money you withdraw from PayPal will arrive in BPI as Peso

      ian,

      A regular BPI SA will do. I don't know any BPI online registration. I already have an existing BPI long before I knew PayPal. I added that account in PP and voila!

      Hi,

      The appropriate account to open is a BPI savings acct. right? If so, which one, Family Savings or Easy Saver?

      My Unionbank account has expired (Paypal knows this too) and I'm not planning of reopening it. I work for an online writing co. in the Phil. and their official bank is BPI. I'm on Upwork/Odesk too so I'm planning to open BPI acct. for my Paypal.

      When applying for a BPI acct, do you need online registration first like UnionBanks EON?

      Hi Everyone,

      I want to add my two cents in this conversation, if you guys don't mind, lol, and i hope these information helps you one way or another.

      Note: All information below are based from my personal experience from PP and may not be the same case for some users here.

      1.) paypal asks you to add a debit/credit card to your account because it will not allow users from the Philippines to add funds directly to their PP account from any type of bank account (Checking/Savings).

      If you are a seller, the buyer will be credited via their credit/debit card going into your PP account but there is no way that you can personally fund your account. Bank funding only works in the US and other countries. The exception is if you have lots of debit/credit cards handy and you pay yourself :) Or you're receiving money as payment for services and there is no need for you to manually add funds to paypal, otherwise you really need a cc/debit card on your account to get fully verified and to use paypal to pay for anything (if you have paypal balance it will not directly deduct it from your card, i believe it will give you an option which method of payment to use).

      2. Your debit/credit card should have the following logos on the front MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover. If your debit/credit card doesn't have one right now, then you can't use that. Find a bank that carry these logos and you're good to go.

      3. For those asking what your card number is, its the one on the front side of the card. it is long. probably around 16 numbers. The account number for BPI i think is the one on the back. If you are unsure, call your bank. If you have online banking on, i believe it is listed there.

      The security code is the 3 digit (or 4) code at the back of your card. You need that. If your card doesn't have it, then again, ask your bank. Based on my research, only debit/credit cards would have this 3 digit number on the back, and are usually on MasterCard, Visa, and Discover cards (4 digits for AmEx). I am unsure if this applies now but please..again if you're not sure. Ask your bank. :)

      4. I just recently discovered that some other countries cant send users in the PH personal payments (not for goods).

      5. The time of remittance to one's bank account is counted in BANKING days, so that means no weekend, no holidays.

      6. You can also use a checking account aside from your savings account (mine is checking or current) for your registered bank account.

      7. Don't expect that the money sent to/from you will be in full when you receive/send it. PayPal charges fees... for the PH, they charge the sender a specific fee rate and the sender has the choice of either shouldering it or passing it on to the receiver (in most cases it is the latter).Example, the seller decides for you to pay the fee then it would look something like, 50.00+(3.9%+15 of 50) = 66.95 -- this will be charged to you, the buyer. In receiving money, there is also that charge (im still researching on this), but it would be around xx%+fix amount too, deducted from the original amount.

      They also have a conversion fee, it will apply if you are paid in dollars and your local currency/ and is withdrawing in peso.

      8. Please read PP terms and conditions before using it.

      Hope this helps . :)
