Setting Up Paypal And EON Visa Debit Card

Paypal Sign up and Email Confirmation


1. Sign up
In signing up, be meticulous in filling up your address since this should match to your EON card’s address for your withdrawals in the future.
2. Email asking you to activate your account
3. Link your bank account with your paypal account / credit card / debit card. You can do this through your account profile page.
I recommend debit card (EON Unionbank account) because it is the easiest and what most people are using.


Below are the requirements you need to take note when going to your nearest Unionbank Branch to apply for EON Visa Debit Card

Addition Fees


  • P350 for your first year annual fee

After knowing the above info, now here’s what you need to do in setting up EON Visa Debit Card:


1. Apply first through online. Here is the link and click here.

Again be meticulous with your address. Changes with address can be made in Paypal but in EON, you only do it once.

2. A reference number will be sent after filling up everything both through email and text. Save it.
3. After receiving your reference number and completing the following requirements:
• Photocopy of your 2 valid Ids

• Reference number
4. Go to the nearest branch present your reference number
5. The teller will guide you on the process
6. You will then pay and deposit your initial deposit
7. You can get your card immediately and change its pin through ATM machines right after you receive it
8. Set up an online account in visa. Go to Unionbank Webpage. At their homepage you can see thumbnails of their different accounts. Click Eon Cyber Account.
9. Fill up the necessary stuffs. Usually it will take two days until you can access your online account
