How To Link Renewed UnionBank Eon Card To Paypal

My eon debit card is important to me as it is my turnkey to my travel bookings and payroll however it is bound to expire every 3 years and mine expired last week for the first time.

So, I went to the nearest UnionBank office and submitted my card for renewal. I filled up a form and voila! They told me to come back after a week to get the new card.

*Please note that some of the branches of UnionBank requires a renewal fee of PhP150.

After one week, I got my card... and what’s next? So clueless...

I haven't found a helpful post with regards to linking a renewed UnionBank EON card to PayPal. So I asked some of my friends how they did it and now is my turn to share it with you.

Link Debit Card To PayPal

*I enrolled again to UnionBank’s Cyber Account because I no longer have access to it years ago.
*After successfully enrolled, I was notified to wait for 2 business days before I can use my EON Cyber Account (but it took me a week for to access my EON Cyber Account, so please be patient). Also, please make sure that there’s at least Php100 on your EON (I’ll explain its relevance later).
*When I got to access my EON Cyber Account, I logged in my Paypal account > Profile > Add/Edit Credit  Card > Add Card and filled in my information.
*After that, I received an e-mail prompting me that I need to confirm the linked debit card to my EON bank account. 

To make sure the card is yours, we made a small charge to it (Php100) that you'll need to confirm (and we'll refund the money to your PayPal account when you're done).

The charge creates a unique 4-digit code on your card statement. If you don't see the charge right away, don't worry - sometimes it takes a few days to show up. If you can't check your card statement online, check your paper statement when it comes in the mail (this can take up to 30 days). You will find the charge from PayPal with a 4-digit code.

How To Confirm Your Card And Complete Verification

Go to your EON Cyber Account > Deposit Accounts > Options (Choose Last 10 Transactions from drop down button) > Go.
- Check the description field of your credit card statement or bank statement (for debit card) for your 4-digit code (see bold digits below) and the word 'PayPal' or 'PP'. Some examples to help you recognise your code.

For Visa/AMEX/JCB/Discover: PP*
For MasterCard: PP*4321PAYPAL -- *EXPUSE

- Back to your PayPal account, go to Add/Edit Credit Card
Click 'Confirm my debit or credit card'
Enter your 4-digit code (1234 or 4321) to complete verification.

The Php100 amount they have charged you will be refunded to your PayPal account within 24 hours after you complete the process.

Now, you have successfully linked your debit/credit card to your PayPal and your PayPal status is now Verified.

You can now transfer your funds from your PayPal account to your bank account. Happy online banking! :)

I just have a question. Upon renewal of your card, you chose to enroll a new account right? Did you use the same email as your last or a new email? Also did it retain your transactions log or summary from your previous account? I'm going to renew my card soon I'm just wondering if you can use the same email for a new enrollment but same account number, cause the renewal is just the card number

Yes, I chose to enroll a new account and used the same email. Unfortunately, my transaction history were gone.

Hello! Ask ko lang kung halimbawa may natirang pera dun sa lumang card, kapag naenroll ko ba yun sa online banking automatic malilipat yung natirang pera sa bagong card? Thanks.

Ganessa said...

I have a question po. nag renew ako ng expiring EON account ko. unfortunately, April 4 pa mag re-resume processes nila but my EON is expiring this March only. ma un-verified ba automatically Paypal account ko? sana po di pa and sana e allow pa rin ako ng paypal na mag send ng funds from my paypal account to another paypal account. kasi diba if di verified paypal account di ka rin ina-allow mag send ng funds sa ibang paypal..

need help po.. thanks! :D

Hi Rafael. I think there's no problem transferring funds from Paypal to Paypal even your EON account has expired. Your Paypal transactions continues pero di mo nga lang mawiwithdraw funds mo to your bank account.
