  6. Click Add Card
  7. Your My ePrepaid Card is now viewable in your PayPal Profile. To finalize linking of your card to Paypal, click Confirm My Card to allow PayPal to send a 4-digit verification code you need.
To retrieve your 4-digit PayPal verification code, please view your Last five (5) card transaction history via BPI Express Online (Card must be enrolled and viewable in your BPI Express Online account's My Portfolio Page) or by sending your request with your 16-digit My ePrepaid Card Number via email to myeprepaid@bpi.com.ph.

Select BILLS PAYMENT as transactions.  Select OTHER MERCHANTS.  Input the 16-digit My ePrepaid Mastercard number as your PREFERENCE NUMBER.  And input the amount you wanted to load. Here I load PHp150 only. Then I confirm my transaction details and select NEXT.  And get my QUEUE NUMBER.

My Queue Number

I sit for awhile and waited for my number, when my number is called I went to TELLER 5 and inform her that I'm loading My ePrepaid Mastercard.  I ask the teller if it is already credited to my card, she answered me as if she doesn't know about My ePrepaid Mastercard. So I went online to check my email from BPI and I see this note below the letter:    

*The amount loaded will be credited to your card the next banking day.

To make sure if the load was posted to my account, I made my BALANCE INQUIRY through MOBILE PHONE(SMS):

  1. Key-in BALEC<space><your 16-digit My ePrepaid Mastercard number>
  2. SEND to 2274 for GLOBE and TM subscribers. Or SEND to 3274 for SMART and TALKnTEXT subscribers.
  3. Then you will received a balance via SMS.  Charged of PHp2.50 per inquiry.
