A lot of bloggers talk about how they are using Unionbank’s EON to withdraw their funds from Paypal and how they got their expanded use number by calling the Unionbank customer service center.
The expanded use number or the EXPUSE number is a requirement to lift the sending limits in Paypal. If using a credit card, a $1.95 fee is charged from the credit card and the EXPUSE Number would normally be received on their billing statement the next month.
In the case of Unionbank EON CyberAccount users, you would have to call to get the EXPUSE number. But as I’ve found out from Pinoy Money Talk:
Paypal strongly discourages this policy of contacting card companies to get the Number, as seen in the following note from the PayPal website.
If this was the case, why does Unionbank prefer to have their card users call to get the EXPUSE numbers?
It isn’t exactly our fault that we have to go through that method since it is the bank’s revised policy. And if Paypal was against this said policy, shouldn’t they investigate and warn Unionbank about it?
The post in Pinoy Money Talk did bother me somewhat since a lot of close friends have asked for help from me on how to use Paypal with EON and not knowing this small detail may actually leave me in a rather sticky guilt-ridden situation.
