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:

        Withdrawal amount for BPI? Do you mean maximum allowed fund transfer from PayPal to BPI or amount that can be withdrawn from a BPI ATM machine?

        Hi jetjet.

        You need a BPI credit account/card to verify PayPal. Or you can opt to use GCash to verify. See helpful links above on how to do this

        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.

        Does all the account uses 1 bank code? E.g. 010040018 BPI.

        Or they have a unique code for every account?

        Hello!

        I received an email from BPI that my withdrawal was denied due to Invalid Bank Account Information. Hours earlier it said transaction was completed then I received an email that it was denied. All my info are correct for the address because the province name was written twice in my paypal account. I am wondering if this could be the reason and what should be the steps to be done. Thank you so much

        Hi there,

        I am wondering if you can transfer funds from one debit card to another (BDO debit card to BPI debit card, for instanc)? Both are linked in your PayPal account. I'm thinking of using PayPal as a "bridge" to the two accounts.

        Thank you!

        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, 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 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 Aj - depending on the Debit Card

        Hi Shan - are you going to use a Mastercard?

        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.

        Hi Lady -

        It usually takes 3 to 5 banking days

        Hi Che -

        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. :)

        When I linked my BPI, I put in Bank of the Philippines Island

        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.

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.
