A lot of Filipino Paypal users may not realize this, but they can turn their PayPal funds into physical cash by transferring it to their local bank. The only thing stopping them is the concern that the transfer may not be successful or that an error may occur which may lead to the possibility of the money being lost in cyberspace. This article contains step-by-step instruction on how to safely transfer money from PayPal to Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), a local bank here in the Philippines.

Here is what you can expect to learn from this Paypal to BPI transfer guide:

  • How to withdraw PayPal funds to BPI
  • How to verify and fund your PayPal account using BPI
  • Tips, things to remember, and requirements when withdrawing PayPal funds

It is also important to note that the steps mentioned here apply only to BPI. While the steps may also be somewhat applicable to other local Philippine banks such as Metrobank, BDO, Unionbank, etc., there will likely be many differences in those processes as well. For instance, the bank routing number (9 digit bank code), number of processing days, processing fees, etc. mentioned here apply only to BPI.

Lastly, since we are on the topic of withdrawing money, I will also briefly discuss some of my methods for depositing or transferring money into my Paypal account.

Requirements for Withdrawing From Paypal to BPI

Before withdrawing PayPal funds to a BPI savings account, be sure that you have the following requirements:

  • The correct bank routing code, also called the 9-digit bank code (please be advised that this is not the same as the card number or the account number).
  • The registered name with PayPal must match with the one on the bank account.
  • The bank account must be active and working.
  • Your 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.

Steps to Link a BPI Savings Account to PayPal

  1. Log in to your verified Paypal account.
  2. Click the Profile menu which is part of the “My Account” section.
  3. A drop-down box will appear. Choose “Add/Edit Bank Account.”
  4. Fill in the necessary information about your BPI savings (ATM) account.

Note: PayPal funds will be transferred to a savings or ATM account, not your credit card account.

Steps to Transfer Paypal Funds to BPI

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

  1. Click the “Withdraw" button. It can be found near the “Add Funds” and “History” buttons.
  2. After clicking "Withdraw," you will be directed to a page where you must choose whether to withdraw the money to a bank account or to a registered PayPal card. For our purposes, we will choose the former.
  3. After selecting the “Withdraw to Bank" option, you will be directed to the following page (pictured below).
  4. Be sure to double-check that the important fields are entered correctly. Make sure the amount to be withdrawn and the appropriate bank are selected. Check that the last four digits correspond to the last four digits of your bank account.
  5. After double-checking the mentioned fields, proceed by clicking on the “submit button.

As can be seen in the screenshot above, I am withdrawing $290 to my BPI ATM account. Even though it is possible to fund your PayPal account with your credit card, the bulk of my PayPal funds ($290) are coming from other online sources like HubPages, oDesk, and YoHoHoN.

Review Your Withdrawal Information

Before finalizing the transaction, PayPal will ask you to verify again if all information is correct. Below is a screenshot of the particular page.

This is your last chance to edit the transaction. Be sure that all info is correct before proceeding.

Your Request is Being Processed

This screen 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 screenshot example of what the transaction details look like.

How Do You Know If the Transfer Is Successful?

To know if a PayPal to BPI fund transfer is successful, simply check your bank balance or ask for a copy of the statement balance. By the way, the transaction will fall under the remittance category. As can be seen in the photo below, there is a banking fee of 150 pesos for the transaction.

As you can see in the first picture, the original amount supposed to be given by PayPal has had 150 pesos deducted, and it took three days to process—which is actually relatively fast and hassle-free.

Common Questions About Paypal to BPI Transfers

Is there a preferred time to begin the transfer?

Do the transfer on a Monday. Avoid letting the transaction process pass over a weekend or holiday if possible.

How do you put money into PayPal?

There are many ways to put money into Paypal. My favorite one is the BPI Credit Card.

How can I use BPI credit cards with PayPal?

As mentioned in this article, BPI savings and ATM accounts are mainly used to withdraw money from PayPal. However, BPI credit cards can also be used to:

  • Verify a PayPal account
  • Make online purchases after it has been linked
  • Fund a PayPal account

How can I add, link, and verify PayPal with a BPI credit card?

When you use your BPI credit card to verify your PayPal account, it will automatically become linked to your PayPal account.

Below are the steps on how to do so:

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

When the above steps are completed, PayPal will charge you 150 pesos, which will be reflected in the billing statement (this amount will be refunded by PayPal). There 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).

More Tips and Suggestions

  • Experiment first with a small amount and to see if it will be successful.
  • Take detailed pictures (screenshots) of the transaction.
  • Use a BPI eCredit Card. (BPI eCredit Card is BPI’s way of dedicating a credit card solely for online purchases. Anyone can get this as long they have a primary credit card.)
  • BPI prepaid credit cards can also be used. But when using them, make sure that there is at least 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. I put a limit on my eCredit Card to prevent possible insurmountable charges.

Using GCash and RCBC

As of September 2019, it is now possible to verify a PayPal account using GCash and RCBC.

Questions & Answers

  • Based on your experience how long does a transfer from Paypal take to arrive in your bpi acc? I read some people complaining that sometimes 7 days after transfer, still nothing arrived at their account.

    Hmmm, that is strange. The longest that I have to wait is 3 days. Sometimes, when I do it at early morning (local time), I would receive it during the afternoon

  • How can I transfer funds from Gcash to PayPal or BPI to PayPal?

    The closest I came to in terms of transferring funds from GCash/BPI to PP is when the latter automatically deducts or charges my linked credit cards when my PayPal balance is zero. Besides that, I don't think there's any other option.

  • I am new to using PayPal. I just made an account last week and my BPI account is also just a few days old. I made both accounts for the purpose of receiving payment from my customers (overseas and local). I'm worried that my BPI account isn't link/verified to my Paypal yet since I didn't receive an email about it. How will I know for sure that it's working? If my account is properly linked?

    Since both accounts are relatively new, it is possible that the email is in the Spam folder. To recap: You need a BPI credit card (with a Mastercard logo) to verify your PayPal account. To complete the verification process, you will need to supply the Expuse code which will be seen in the BPI credit card's monthly/billing statement.

    However, to withdraw PayPal to your BPI, a different account is needed. This is the BPI savings accounts. Basically, you need two types of BPI account to verify your PayPal account and transfer funds from PP to BPI

  • Are you, the writer of this article, linking a BPI Savings Account to a US Paypal or a PH Paypal Account? I can’t seem to link my BPI to my US Paypal.

    I think it's a PH PP account since every time I input PP's URL, it adds a .ph suffix

  • The balance in my Paypal account is in USD. Should I enter the amount in peso when transferring the balance to my BPI account?

    It would automatically be converted to pesos. It is only in GCash where changing from USD to PHP before withdrawing is required.

      The bank routing code cannot be found on the card. Do you need the bank routing code of BPI or of another bank?

      It might be possible as long as it has all the needed requirements.

      Hi Tyler.

      If you follow the steps above, you could transfer your PayPal balance to the BPI account connected with the ATM card.

      Hi Lino Cuesta.

      Thanks for the tip. That's why I only use BPI, RCBC, BDO, and GCash.

      Hi Luther.

      Mastercard that does not accept outside cash-in might not be able to be deposited by PayPal.

      Hi Kye Nerry.

      The code sent by PayPal is probably the EXPUSE code. It can be viewed in the card's billing statement.

      Hi Christy.

      BPI account numbers are usually 10 digits in lenght. Are you connecting it to verify your PayPal or to withdraw money to it?

      Hello.. I connected my paypal to my BPI mastercard last week. The paypal emailed and said that paypal is now connected but when I try to use my BPI card it always says "unable to process". I already talked to the BPI and they said that there is nothing wrong with my account. I emailed the paypal again and they sent me an email regarding a code which they will send to my bank account. It's been 4 days now and I still can't use my BPI card. Any ideas on how I can resolve this problem? Thank you.

      Hi Diane Arnesto. I understand that you are unable to withdraw PayPal funds transferred to BPI Family Savings Bank. If the funds is already transferred to your BPI account, you can simply withdraw it from any BPI ATM machines.

      Hi Glenn. It depends on the bank if they allow this. It is possible that one bank allows it, but the other bank does not. This may likely fail the transaction.

      Hi schlepper. Information on PayPal must match with that of BPI. Have you tried editing the address in PayPal?

      Hi Alvin. As far as I remember. Better consult with BPI to be sure if they change policies.

      Hi jiann. Yup. But, Gcash is the cheapest (link also provided above).

      Hi Carl Lester. If it has been a month already, you may follow it up already.

      Hi William Edward. Epay Mastercard can be used for payment. If your PayPal balance is empty, and you made a transaction, Epay MC will be charged if it is linked with PP.

      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.

      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 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, 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

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.

First Name: Please enter only letters, hyphens, spaces and commas." Can you help me? I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

      Hi, good morning. 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 John -

      Hi Lady -

      Hi ferlyssa -

      The bank routing code is different from the bpi atm card

      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 :)

      Hello! First off thanks for writing this very comprehensive guide.

      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?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello! Just wanna ask why my I can't withdraw funds in Paypal. It keeps on saying "There's nothing to withdraw right now." And the money that was sent to me is "ON HOLD". And on paypal pending activity, it shows "Make sure you add shipping or tracking information. This payment will be in your pending balance until 1 April 2017. It may be available sooner, once we know the transaction went smoothly." I feel worried about this.

      I know this is late but hopefully you will still see and answer 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.

      Hello Dear Readers. Apologies for the late reply. As for the queries:

      Ruzzy - I don't think that is posible

      Pixer - you need a BPI credit or debit card to verify your Paypal account

      GuestL - the same thing happened to me. However, I don't think that it is impacting

      Jason Mapa - if it pushes through, you should see it in your savings account

      Melanie - I don't think that's possible. Please let us know if you do inquire about it to BPI

      Faith - It happened to me too

      king - are you referring for withdrawal or to verify the Paypal account?

      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.

      Hi Harvey Guiang,

      Are you referring to BPI EPS? If that is a savings account, you can transfer your Paypal funds to it

      Hi Kat,

      A debit card will also do.

      Hi Charisse,

      I think BPI family and BPI have different bank codes. The one provided here is for BPI and not family.

      Hi April,

      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?

      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,

      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.
