So, my UnionBank Eon Card had expired so I needed a new debit card to verify my Paypal account. I picked BPI my ePrepaid for my new debit card. After browsing the site of BPI, I realized that it is easier to get and does not require a maintaining balance and yearly fee. BPI My ePrepaid card is good for two years and it costs me Php 500 only.
BPI my ePrepaid Card
Once you have your BPI my ePrepaid card, you can proceed on verifying your Paypal account. Here are the steps on how to verify your Paypal using your debit card—- BPI my ePrepaid.
- BPI My ePrepaid card
- Paypal account
- BPI Express Online Account
- BPI Account
- From your BPI Express online account, you should transfer at least Php 100 from your regular BPI savings/current account to your ePrepaid card. Paypal will have to charge you for it but the amount will be returned to you after the verification process is completed.
- From your Paypal account, go to: My Account. Then, choose “Profile” and click “Add/Delete Credit Card.”
Paypal | Add debit card
- Choose the button, “Add Card” after providing all the information needed.
Paypal | Add Card
- After submitting all the required information, Paypal will let you know about the Php 100 transaction fee and will ask you to provide the 4-digit verification code from your card’s online statement.
Paypal | Request for 4-Digit Verification Code
- After two to three business days, you can retrieve the four-digit verification code from the online statement of your BPI My ePrepaid. The description field should look like this: PP*XXXXCODE where X is digits between 0-9. Example is PP*1234CODE. If you are ready to get the verification code, login to your BPI Express Online account.
Paypal | Check Debit Card Transactions
- Check the transactions of your BPI My ePrepaid Card and get the four digit code

As of October 27, 2015, the top 10 sites in the Philippines according to Alexa ranking are the following:
- Facebook.com – It’s not surprising! A lot of Filipinos are addicted to Facebook. Thanks to free Facebook care of Mark Zuckerberg
- Google.com – Isn’t every one’s best friend is Google when we have to do a school homework or looking for the right code for your new program or we are stalking someone?
- Google.com.ph – As soon as Filipinos found out there’s a PH site for Google, they often choose it to become their homepage. Like me, I find it more efficient to see Google results first based on Philippine setting.
- Youtube.com – Filipinos love music, movies and anything entertaining. From the latest music videos from the West to illegally ripped-off teleseryes (Filipino drama series), they browse for videos in YouTube. And lately, I am enjoying the how-to videos for cooking and doing make-up.
- Yahoo.com – For entertainment’s sake, Yahoo.com is a good place to lurk in. Sadly, they had to shutdown Yahoo.com.ph but there’s still a lot to see in Yahoo’s site.
- Abs-cbnnews.com – If you’re a die-hard Kapamilya, you’ll know what to read and watch in ABS-CBN’s news website. Through its Facebook, I always end up opening three or more links every day from this site. If I want the news, I go to this site (though Rappler.com which is 15th in ranking is my first choice). Plus, I get to see my favorite local celebrities from this site.
- Gmanetwork.com – This is the website for the Kapuso fanatics. It’s made up of news, updates about the network’s TV schedules, artists, events and news.
- Twitter.com – Just two days ago, #AlDubEBTamangPanahon pulls in over 39.5 million tweets. This is enough proof that Twitter is a site loved by a lot of Filipinos from all ages and classes.
- Blogspot.com – Filipinos love to write even if their grammar is sometimes wrong. The best platform to express themselves is through blogs. I know there are thousands of blogs out there about everything a Filipino can think about. So far, WordPress.com is ranked 20th in the top PH sites based on Alexa. Well, read this WordPress. I always recommend you to my friends especially if they are serious in setting up their own websites.
- Amazon.com – Online shopping is a growing business for the past years and Filipinos love to shop as well! Since Amazon.com has been offering shipping to Philippines, it is no surprise that Filipinos are enjoying shopping online for imported goods and luxury items from this site.
Why do you need to know the top 10 sites? If you have a site or blog, it is highly recommended that you integrate your posts in these sites. The following items can be done to make your posts more visible:
- Make a campaign through social media (Facebook and Twitter) to increase your number of views.
- Upload your own videos in social media (Facebook and Youtube)
- Using blog platforms like WordPress and Blogger can help you design your website for FREE until you decide to purchase.
- You can have extra income by featuring ads from these sites like Amazon.com.
- Though it’s quite debatable, linking your posts to famous sites is a positive signal in the SEO world. It shows that you are a willing participant in the web’s linking system.
With more than 85,000 resumes of Filipino freelancers in Onlinejobs.ph, there is no doubt you can pick the right person for your project and business.
In most online sites for job seekers, there are always bad apples but I can guarantee that most of the Filipino jobseekers here are diligent, qualified and trustworthy.
