  • Online Banking
  • Mobile App
  • Checkbook
  • Passbook
  • Statement of Account

  2. Click on “Wallet
  3. Click “Link a Credit Card” and you will be directed to a short form
  4. Enter your 16-character card number

  6. Enter the address attached to the account as your billing address. This is the same address that appears in your monthly bank statement.

  8. The 4-digit code needed for confirmation can be found on your card’s next statement of account. You can also check your transaction history on Online Banking or call Security Bank’s customer service at 88-791-88 2 banking days after requesting confirmation from PayPal to get the 4-digit confirmation code.

*Note that non-MasterCard ATM Cards such as Cashlink ATM cards may not be linked to Paypal at this time.

Sending Money

You may send money to another PayPal user if there is a debit or credit card attached to your PayPal account or your PayPal account has sufficient funds in it to cover the amount being sent and any fees that PayPal may charge. To send money, follow these steps:

  1. Click “Pay or send payments”
  2. If the receiver is the a first time recipient, type in the email address or mobile phone number of the person you want to send money to – make sure this is correct.
  3. Enter the amount of money you want to send.
  4. Check and confirm the details entered and submit the payment.

Note if your PayPal account balance is less than the amount you’d like to send, PayPal will either take the remaining funds from the card linked to your PayPal account. If no card is linked to your Paypal account, nothing will be sent.

You do not need a person’s PayPal account number in order to send funds. At this point in time, PayPal uses the recipient’s email address or phone number in order to route payments.

Withdrawing / Transferring Money from Your PayPal Account to Your Bank Account

To withdraw funds in your PayPal account to a Security Bank account, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have enough money in your PayPal account
  2. Click “Withdraw” to be directed to the Withdraw Funds page
  3. Select “Withdraw funds to your bank account”. Note that withdrawals where the amount withdrawn is over P6,999 are free of any withdrawal charges while a withdrawal below P6,999 is subject to a P50 charge
  4. Type in the amount you wish to transfer to your bank account
  5. Check and confirm the withdrawal
  6. Your first withdrawal will take 5-7 banking days to process; future withdrawals will take 3-5 banking days to process.

Your withdrawal may be rejected by Security Bank if the following conditions are not met:

  • The name on your PayPal account is different than the name on your Security Bank account (if you have a Business account, the name on your PayPal account should be your business name)
  • You did not enter the correct account number. Please note that you must withdraw to your bank account using your bank account number, not your debit card.
