A little introduction

To verify your Paypal account you need to have a credit card or debit card, I personally chose debit card; for me it is more safer than credit cards. Debit cards can only be used when you have loaded some amount of money on your account. In my case I use East West VISA debit card to verify my Paypal Account.
Visit the nearest East West bank branch in your area, East West Bank has branches nationwide. The tellers are also familiar in handling Paypal transactions so they can really assist you, just tell them that you need a VISA debit card card. Minimum deposit is only Php 100.00 but I suggest to deposit at-least Php 200.00. Present at least 1 valid Government issued ID and proof of billing like Electric Bills, Water Bills or Telephone Bills. Fill up their application form. Your VISA Debit card will be released within 4-5 working days depending on your location.
Upon Receiving the card you will be advised to changed the PIN Code, and Signed at the back to activate the card.
Now that you have already your East West VISA Debit Card, you can now use it to verify you Paypal Account.
- Log-in to PayPal official website.
- Click on Profile>Add/Edit Credit Card
- Make sure that your Name in Paypal and in your card are the same
- Select Card Type = VISA
- Enter your 16 Digit Card Number
- Select Expiration Date
- Enter the 3-digits number located at the back of your card as Card Verification Number
- Lastly verify your Billing address if it matches the your billing address in you card.
- Add Card
Once you successfully added your card, you will be deducted Php100.00 in Debit Card.
Paypal will ask you 4 digit code to fully verify your account. Go to East West Branch for assistance and they will give you the 4 digit code, then you can now have your Paypal verified.
