    this is one of my problem too…paypal is still a very limited online financial tool for me. thank god, there are members here at PMT who would readily offer to transfer their paypal money to my account by paying them in peso.

    “If your card is linked with Paypal, when you purchase something online, it will automatically deduct from your credit (or debit) card the transaction amount. If you have some balance on your Paypal account, the system will first deduct this then the remaining balance will be debited from your card.”

    Oh my God! That’s the answer I’ve been looking for! I thought I can never purchase anything online using Paypal because I could not add funds to my Paypal account (as my bank is non-US). Presently, I buy things online using my debit card, each time praying that no hacker is anywhere near to notice my transaction.

    Hey, thanks!

    Linking Paypal and your credit card really makes online purchases more safer and secure as compared to using your credit card directly. Linking however takes about a month to process because you need to wait for your credit card statement, but it’s well worth the wait!

    oh, so why is safer it when you’ve linked your credit card to your paypal?

  5. Jay Castillo says:

    @Dinah, it’s safer to link them and pay using Paypal as compared to paying directly with your credit card because you don’t need to give your credit card number and the 3 digit pin code at the back when paying online. Once a merchant knows your credit card number and pin, they can actually charge purchases to your credit card without you knowing it until you get your monthly credit card statement. I experienced this once and it was a good thing that merchant refunded me when I asked them. It was for a monthly fee for a membership subscription which had already been cancelled and yet they still charged me for another month. Had I used Paypal, I could have cancelled the subscription within my Paypal account management screen and the merchant would not have been able to charge me in the first place.

    I usually do the fund transfer from another PP account. I asked some friends to transfer fund to my account in exchange of cash or will just deposit the payment thru their bank account.

    I also buy funds from a third party when my friends has no available PP funds.

    This post will surely a big help for those new in using PP.

    can I add funds to my paypal account through a savings account from a Philippine bank?

  12. James | PinoyMoneyTalk.com says:

    @Jopet, look for a Paypal account owner willing to transfer his funds to your account. You can start by dropping by the PMT Forum.

    @Dre, no, that’s not possible. The bank account must be a US bank account for the transfer to be possible.

    Hi. thanks for this helpful information. But, can i open a U.S. bank account in the Philippines???

    I had a personal experience just a month ago that tells me this works only if you have at least a $1 or more balance (like some sort of seed money) on your Paypal (not zero).

    ok…given that i have a paypal account and it’s zero balance but it has been an active account…
    let’s say my debit card is zero balance as well but it is an active debit card… will it consider deducting the fees instantly as soon as the money comes in or it won’t allow you to do any purchases until your debit card has a remaining balance?

    nice! ilike very much !

    …you can open an EON account at Union Bank to link to your Paypal Account.  The one time charge is Php350.00.  If you are going to purchase online using your Paypal, you just need to deposit funds to your EON account (just like your ordinary savings account).  They issue an ATM card for this account.

    Link your US bank account to your Paypal account and once confirmed, you
    can add funds by transferring money from it. This feature can be found
    under My Account > Add Funds > Transfer Funds From a Bank Account in the United States.

    Hi, kabayan. It’s strange, but in my account, I don’t see the “Add Money” or “Add Funds” button which is visible in the other Paypal accounts of other nationalities.
    So, how do I add funds now to my Paypal account from my bank account?
