GOOD NEWS! To all the 1.24 million holders of GSIS eCard Plus (members and pensioners, Im one of its members not the pensioners. lol) I have successfully applied for a Paypal Account using this eCard! Now I can do online transaction (sending and receiving money) much secure, much better, and much easier!
First I tried to find answers online regarding my queries if it is possible to use this kind of card. But to no avail, the infos Ive gathered are not that specific. It only say that you could use a credit card/debit card, or any card with a VISA logo on it.
And since my eCard Plus has 3 of the Paypal requirements (its a debit card, have a VISA logo, and its back-up by Unionbank) So I just gave it a try and enrolled it. And was so glad that Paypal has rapidly verified it. Yehhbahh!
