PayPal is used by a large number of international businesses and individuals as their main means for sending funds to freelancers. As a blogger, I sometimes get clients from abroad and usually they pay for my services via PayPal and normally I would transfer funds from PayPal to my bank account. Good thing I learned that transferring or withdrawing money from your PayPal account to your PayMaya wallet using your PayMaya virtual card is possible.
One way to cash-in to your PayMaya account is through PayPal. If you have money in your PayPal account and you’re looking for a quick and easy way to transfer funds, then you might want to check out this guide.
Normally we transfer funds from our PayPal account to our bank account which usually takes 3 to 5 business days to reflect. Fortunately, we can now transfer funds to our PayMaya account.
But before you can transfer your money from PayPal to your PayMaya, you first need to link both accounts. Make sure that you have at least PHP 100 in your PayMaya account to link to PayPal to facilitate an authorization request. The authorization amount charged against your PayMaya will be refunded when PayPal verifies with PayMaya that the card is valid.
How to link your PayPal and PayMaya account
- After creating a PayPal account, go to “Banks and Cards” and choose “Link a Card or Bank”.
- Under the “Link a payment method” screen, choose “Link a debit or credit card”.
- Then under the “Link a card” screen enter your PayMaya virtual card information and ensure that your PayPal address is an exact match with the address used in your PayMaya registration.
For new users, the PayMaya virtual card can be found on your PayMaya app. Just tap “My Cards” and select “Online Payment Card Number”. You can then access your PayMaya virtual card, complete with the 16-digit card number, expiration date, and CVV2 code which you can use for online transactions just like you would use a credit or debit card.
- After entering your PayMaya virtual card information and made sure that all information were correct you can then click “Link Card”.
- That’s it you have successfully linked your PayMaya card to your PayPal account. You can now start transferring your PayPal funds to your PayMaya wallet.
Note: as mentioned previously, Php 100 will be deducted from your PayMaya wallet to verify your card ownership. But don’t worry the amount will be refunded as soon as PayPal verifies your account with PayMaya.
