GSIS eCard Plus can be use for Paypal

Posted by raredog in Raredog Promotes, ... | 11.07.2007 - 7:40 pm

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!

More Good News from your eCard Plus

The eCard also serves as a hospitalization discount card, where members and pensioners are provided up to 50 percent off on their bills from some of the biggest hospitals in the land.

Members and pensioners can also use the eCard for their personal banking needs because the eCard provides them with an automatic Union Bank ATM savings account that comes complete with online banking and VISA debit features.

Aside from providing access to the G-W@PS kiosk, the eCard Plus also serves as an official GSIS ID card, ATM card, debit card and hospitalization discount card in select partner-hospitals in the Philippines under the GSIS Hospitalization Support Program.

hi arkie,

im also an ecard holder, last year i tried to use its feature as a debit card to withdraw funds from my paypal account, i researched about it here in the net and ive read from a forum at that you have to enroll your ecard online to be able to use it, so i went to gsis’ website and then to unionbank, the bank partnered to gsis, and went through their online process, but then i reached a dead end since for your ecard to be enrolled online you have to have an account number with unionbank which can not be found on the ecard itself or from any other documents given by gsis together with the ecard. what you have to do daw is to ask for your account in any unionbank branch. since wlang branch ang unionbank dito sa dumaguete, i tried to call their toll free numbers for visayas since this is where i reside, hindi sya gumagana, a co employee advised me na kelangan daw talaga ung hotline mismo sa manila ang gamitin, ang mahirap lng my charge na sya and you dont know ganu katagal ang conversation kasi call center ung tatawagan mo. so if you reside in manila or have a unionbank branch near just go there and ask for your wife’s account number for her gsis ecard, if wala you have no choice but to call their hotline. in case you want to know what happened in my case, i didnt pursue nlng withdrawing my paypal funds using my ecard kasi i dont have a unionbank branch near me tapos mahal pa ang charge pg tatawagan ko ang hotline nila, i have to go pa to cebu or bacolod na merong unionbank, in the end mas malakai ang cost kysa sa benefit na makukuha ko. so what i did was i just used my paypal funds to purchase items online sa ebay philippines, wla pa akong gasto 🙂

hope this helped you kahit papano 🙂 God bless with your online purchase!

to arkie:

i forgot pala, as what jin said sa taas, kelangan din na at least 250 pesos ang laman ng ecard para magamit. 🙂

again, God bless! hope nakatulong kami 🙂

Long live a great deal! In this day and age I could use all the help I can get. Thanks for the help!

Hi Guys,

Has anyone tried applying for a Pro Account on Justin.Tv using the Ecard? I don’t have a credit card or any of that. I’d like to see Pacman’s November fight with Cotto uninterrupted, hehe. Please let me know. I want to try my e-card on internet transactions.

@dice – yup! you can absolutely deposit on your ecard. Just get your account number sa reciept ng Unionbank ATM machines or over-the-counter nila. Tapos, from there you can fill-up a deposit slip and deposit your cash/cheque.

Or second option – call this GSIS Hotline 810-4747 and ask for your Unionbank Savings Acct. Number. Hope this helps.

But d problem is wala daw akong acount numbr.!? San po b nakukuha ung acount numbr na un? N is that bank acoun!?

@nida – Are you a gov’t employee? If yes, then apply for a UMID Card at GSIS, yan yung kailangan mong GSIS card. Yung account number sa Unionbank kapag na acquire mo na yung UMID Card.

Great post. Great.
