Metrobank Debit link to Paypal

Hello,

 

I would just like to clarify on some matters pertaining the Metrobank account linking to Paypal.

 

There have been some posts stating that one CANNOT link their Metrobank accounts to Paypal, such as this:
http://www.affordablecebu.com/load/banking/linking_paypal_account_to_metrobank_atm_account/13-1-0-29...

 

And those that CAN link their Metrobank accounts to Paypal, such as this:

Hence, I would just like to know if I really CAN link my Metrobank account to my Paypal account and TRANSFER FROM the Metrobank account INTO my Paypal?

Hi there Lithium4307.

 

Welcome to the Community!
 

If you are trying to link a credit/debit card to PayPal, you will be able to do this once the card is issued by Visa, MasterCard, Amex or Discover. The card needs to have a 16 digit card number, expiry date and 3 digit CVV number on the back.


You can do this by clicking the 'Wallet' icon on PayPal and then by adding the credit/debit card to your PayPal account.

 

It's not possible to add funds from a credit/debit card to a UK PayPal account at this time. Once you have the card linked to PayPal, you can use the card to fund payments from your account on the PayPal website.

Re: Metrobank Debit link to Paypal

Hello, I would just like to clarify on some matters pertaining the Metrobank account linking to Paypal. I’m just confused. I have the same issue and PayPal have been collected 500Php from my PayPal account for the money-back transaction caused by the failure of money transfer to my metrobank account. What account number should I put in linking my metrobank account? The account number is only 13 numbers and the card number is 16. Which one should we put in the linking?

Hello!

 

The account number of our MetroBank accounts are found on the bottom part of our credit/debit card, sir. It is the 13-digit code separated by dashes. 🙂

Yes it’s only 13 but they’re asking for 16 numbers? What should I do to qualify what they’re asking for? Add three zeros? Where? At the beggining or in the end?

Re: Metrobank Debit link to Paypa

I have the same concern right now...I tried linking my MBTC account without any zeros so I just used the 13 digit account number and not the 16 digit card number...I am currently waiting for the transfer to my savings account. 

Hopefully I will get it tomorrow, it might be because of the holidays that's why it has not been transferred yet. But I am hoping I did link my account properly. 

Has anyone been successful so far in linking a savings account from Metrobank to Paypal?

Hello Michikoi!

 

I have the same problem, did you managed to make it link your Metrobank Savings Account to your Paypal account?

If Yes, can you share how you do that, what is the routing number ?

 

Thanks,

Donald

Hi Donald, 

 

Yes, it's working now. I've been using my Metrobank card now for Paypal transactions. 

Thank you!

Re: Metrobank Debit link to Paypa

Sorry Donald, I didn't read your message carefully. The routing number is 026002846 (I only Googled this). 

 

By the way, for everyone else, I learned that if I transfer money from Paypal before 8AM Philippine time, then I get the money in my bank the next day. I believe this is because Paypal is using UTC for it's timezone. So if I do transactions 8AM and beyond, then I receive them the day after tomorrow (2 days after). Hope this helps! 🙂
