      I am posting this reply using a mobile droid phone.

      You can only encash to card which is PayMaya from PayPal. The fee was now FLAT P250 since February 2016.

    • coderinthebox says:

      If you are about to purchase with PayPal and you don’t have enough PayPal money, PayPal will withdraw from PayMaya

      • Juan Cruz says:

        Hi thanks po for this. A Huge help po. Ask ko na rin po, sa PayMaya may fee po ba if mag transfer ako ng Money sa PayMaya ko sa another PayMaya Account? Situation po kasi na mag padala ako ng Pera sa kapatid ko through PayMaya, may fee po ba yun?

      • coderinthebox says:

        Sending from PayMaya to PayMaya is free, free din po mag send ng PayMaya to SmartMoney

      • Juan Cruz says:

        Thank you so much po for this talaga. Pede na akong mag padala sa mga kapatid ko, no hustle, free and anytime na kailangan nila. Thank you po ulit.

      • coderinthebox says:

        You can use PayMaya to send to other PayMaya account or even to a SmartMoney/SmartPadala account =)

    • coderinthebox says:

      Just an update, PayMaya is on talks with PayPal to zero out all charges when withdrawing your PayPal money with PayMaya

      • Juan Cruz says:

        Nice! laking tulong po nyan kung sakali, ang laki kasi ng 250pesos na kaltas. I can maximize yung income sa freelance ko. Thank you po sa update.

    Hi pa help po ni link ko po yung paymaya ko sa paypal ko nabawas na lahat ng dapat mabawas sa pag activate na activate ko na rin sya using the 4 digit number ang problema walang card na nag appear sa paypal ko 0 balance parin sya sana po masagot thx

    • coderinthebox says:

      Nasa linked accounts po ang PayMaya nyo at hindi din magkakaroon ng laman ang PayPal ninyo. Ang paglilink ay para maging verified account and PayPal ninyo para maka pag transfer kayo from PayPal. Ang mga naka link na accounts sa PayPal, iyon po ang kukunan ni PayPal ng funds kung walang laman ang PayPal ninyo at me binili kayo using PayPal as payment. Ung ibang nalilink ay para naman withdraw ang laman ng PayPal nila.

    Hi. I didn’t put my home # sa paypal billing address, but meron dun sa paymaya acc ko, hindi ko ba marereceive yung 4 digit code? What will happen to my 100 then?

  4. jse says:

    is 150 pesos enough to verify paypal account?

    • coderinthebox says:

      Normally it is enough but I recommend P200

      • jse says:

        last question, if i have a money on paypal account and i have load on paymaya, and i want to send the money to some one, will there be a option?

      • coderinthebox says:

        Are you going to send money from PayPal to PayPal or PayMaya to PayMaya?

      • jse says:

        paypal to paypal.

      • coderinthebox says:

        As long as you have money from PayPal, you can send to any PayPal account. This is not a PayMaya issue but a PayPal issue. If there will be charge, only PayPal can say how much and when they will withdraw from your PayMaya. PayPal will always withdraw from your linked cards each time the money you are transferring is not enough

  5. jonna says:

    • coderinthebox says:

      Wala pong kinalaman ang PayMaya nyo. Ang issue nyo at magpadala ng pera from PayPal nyo to another PayPal.

  6. Ramos says:

    Can i loan money from paymaya and pay it some other day

  7. nuzzo says:

    I bought a PayPal account from Auction Essistance. Is it safe to add my own paymaya card to it?

    • coderinthebox says:

      Problem with PayPal bought from auction is that you don’t own the email address used to signup that account. The previous owner can just issue a password reset request and gain back the account. Is it safe? It is almost impossible to tell

  8. jam says:

    ask ko lang po kung kelangan ko pa kumuha ng physical card of pay maya para ma verify yung paypal ko and pano pag may ang send sakin ng pera thru paypal ma a add po ba yung sa paypal funds or rekta na sa paymaya yung pera?. thank you po and nice website 🙂

  9. Jet says:

    Hi i would just like to know because i have two first names, if i only used 1 name would that affect me in anyway? Thank you

    • coderinthebox says:

      Having two first name and using only one may affect you in the future when you need to prove ownership of the account.

  10. EJ Luzon says:

    Hi, how many days did it take for you to get the P100 refund for the code? I did not receive mine after 24 hours. 🙁

    • coderinthebox says:

      I did not reach days, I got the confirmation code and the refund in less than 1 day. Refund may take up to 3 working days

      • Giselle says:

        Ako din. It’s been 2 days. And ask ko lang po, pag ma refund na yung PHP100 san po mapupunta yung pera? Sa paymaya or paypal account?

      • coderinthebox says:

        It will credited back to your PayMaya account

  11. Kaname Yuu says:


    I tried linking my paymaya to paypal.. I get error that the card I used was not activated by the bank. What to do? Is it because I still don’t have funds in the virtual card yet?

    • coderinthebox says:

      As stated, you need to activate the card.. virtual or physical and add funds before you link to PayPal

      • Kaname Yuu says:

        I alreaady fixed this issue thanks! 🙂 another question. you will click on the “withdraw” to get your money from Paypal to Paymaya, right? is there a minimum amount para makawithdraw? kasi baka 1K na lang matira dahil you said 250 ang charge ng paypal sa withdraw. makukuha ko ba yung 1K at mawiwidraw papunta sa PayMaya? thanks!

      • coderinthebox says:

        Kindly check PayPal, early this year I was able to get $1 to my PayMaya.

        The limit is with PayPal and it changes from time to time

  12. AB Baldonado says:

    Hello po ask ko lang po if paano magupgrade ng PayMaya Visa Card? I’m in Laguna po. Is there any other way na maupgrade po malapit dito?

    • coderinthebox says:

      Activate your card and then order from PayMaya for the physical card. The link is The instruction on how to link the card can be found within the card package. Please note that you need to provide proof of identity by uploading 2 government ID using the app or doing a facebook video call to a PayMaya representative. This is a requirement of “Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas”

    san ko po pweseng makita ang 9 digit bank code ng pay

  14. June CJ says:

    @coderinthebox once i linked the virtual card from paymaya where will i see the fuse code or the 4digit code that it will generate so i can verify and complete the process?

    • coderinthebox says:

      PayMaya will send it to you.. in case the text message won’t come.. send an email to

      The approval code comes in this format “xxxx PayPal verification…”, it is usually sent as a separate text message but on rare cases, it is being sent with the $1 charge notification

  15. Mark says:

    Hello po! I tried to link my paymaya virtual card pero paypal gave me a notification saying card declined by issuer… Is it because walang load ang card ko?

    • coderinthebox says:

      Make sure that your virtual card is activated. Make sure that you provide the same card details you supplied on your PayMaya card physical/virtual. Make sure you have at least P100 cash on the card but I recommend P200 cash.

  16. Kenneth says:

    Hello po. Pwede po bang gamitin muna yung Virtual Visa Card ? Yung sa phone lang dinadownload para maactivate yung paypal ? Hindi ko pa kasi nakukuha yung physical card ko eh.

  17. Marie says:

    Hello, will I use my physical card info or the virtual one? Kasi nung ni-link ko siya magkaiba ng credit card number and all. Thanks 🙂

  18. Breaknode says:

    Hi. somehow linking worked but I was 100.00 and 47.53 by paypal. refund of 47.53 was done by still missing the 100.00. already sent an email to paypal support today. should i just wait for now?

    • coderinthebox says:

      You get charged P47.53 and you lost P100? Please correct me if I am wrong. PayPal won’t charge in random.

      • Breaknode says:

        I know its a bit weird but this happened at the same time and also sent a text message for both charge. still waiting for the 100 refund

  19. Hi pwede po mag tanong? Paano po pag nag maximum na yung password,pero hindi pa po na uupgrade, tapos ang nalagay ko po na back up mali yung email add, my laman na po kasi yung paymaya ko ayaw po ma widraw ang sabi po ng machine( transaction failed please try to tour issueing bank.) Sana po mkatulong po kayo para ma widraw na namin sahod namin .. 🙁

    • coderinthebox says:

      Send an email to, you need to prove the account ownership. most importantly, you must have the sim card intact with you. ung sim card na naka link. Your comment was pushed to the spam since naglagay ka ng non existing website.

  20. melvin says:

    pano ko po makukuha o sa ko po makikita csc number ng card?

    • coderinthebox says:

      security number is at the back of the card, kung virtual ang gagamitin mo, nasa app ang number na un sa card details ng virtual card
