PayPal to PayMaya Add Eligible Debit Card Problem

06fb8bd2-58fb-4e48-8e15-f009ab3b314e

On November 5th I was able to successfully transfer funds from my PayPal to PayMaya and it was instant as usual. The next day I encountered a problem when I attempted to transfer again. I was redirected to a page prompting me to add an eligible debit card. My PayMaya Visa Debit Card which I have been using for a few years does not show up as one of the options for instant transfer. Even when I tried to reenter my PayMaya Visa Debit Card again, it still would not show up. None of my other Visa Debit Cards would show up either.

 

In PayPal Community I found posts detailing the same PayPal Visa Debit Card problem.

img_0322img_0318img_0320img_0317

 

I contacted PayPal about it and even the links provided did not work. It took me back to the same “add eligible debit card”. They did admit the problem was mainly caused by their so-called upgrade.

 

The problem with this PayPal representative was carelessness – the link provided did not work because it should be “moneytransfer”, not “moneytransfers”. When using the correct link http://www.paypal.com/moneytransfer, my PayMaya Visa debit cards appeared in the options:

I have no doubt that it only affected some PayPal users. But as of today I have noticed that the number of users who have encountered the add eligible debit card problem has increased.

On November 13th I decided to try to create a PayPal account for my mother who also has a verified PayMaya account. I got her PayPal verified and linked her PayMaya account to it. I transferred my USD funds to her PayPal and through her PayPal account, I transferred funds to her PayMaya account. To my relief the “add eligible debit card” did not pop up as her PayMaya Visa Debit Card appeared as a transfer option.

img_0497

img_0498

The amount was successfully transferred.

img_0499

I tried it with a smaller amount like $22 to see if the PayMaya Visa Debit Card problem would occur. Sadly, my second attempt to withdraw funds to her PayMaya account failed.

On November 20th, I tried to withdraw PayPal funds to her PayMaya account with the full amount I intended to withdraw. The transfer went through without an error.

If you’ve landed on this page via a Google search, I just want to let you know the problem is merely on PayPal’s end and not with PayMaya. Patience is required as for my experience this is the third week I have not been able to use my own PayPal and PayMaya for instant transfers. PayPal’s customer support will answer you with canned responses as they definitely do not know when the “add eligible debit card” problem will end for some users.

Cooking Dash Pre-Made Meals

img_0648

In the Thanksgiving Series Finale, there is a goal to serve Pumpkin Spice Lattes in Party Fowl. You might have checked the Daily Goals Cheat Sheet first but didn’t find it. That’s because Pumpkin Spice Latte is a pre-made meal booster which can be purchased a set for 2 gold bars.

img_0866

In order to serve 20 Pumpkin Spice Lattes in Party Fowl, you would need 8 gold bars. One set of Pumpkin Spice Latte for 2 gold bars can be served to 6 customers. That is the only way to reach that goal in the Thanksgiving Series Finale.

img_0711img_0712img_0713

Other Cooking Dash pre-made meals are Peanuts in Barnyard BBQ and Cookie’s Cookout and Kittens in Cat Lady Crepes.

Tracking A TransferWise Delay

img_7215

While researching online for platforms to transfer and receive money within a day, I would often read TransferWise being mentioned in some forums. I signed up sometime July or August but only got to use TransferWise’s services in October when attempting to transfer USD to my VND account. Even though their exchange rates fare better than PayPal and some others, I had to learn about tracking a TransferWise delay for my third TransferWise experience.

I went through a verification process pretty much like the same one I went through with Skrill years ago. The difference is my Skrill verification was approved in less than a week compared to my TransferWise verification. I made sure I uploaded the right documents as required but no one from customer service or whoever was assigned to look into it bothered until I had to send an email to remind them I did upload the correct images. On the TransferWise website I could see the list of images I repeatedly uploaded for which I was not getting any confirmation. I simply used the TransferWise mobile app so I did not have any way of knowing how many images I have already uploaded.

img_7210

It was frustrating.

img_0289

 

For the first two USD to VND transfers I made, the funds appeared in my VND account in less than 2 hours. I was mindful of the estimated time. The TransferWise mobile app will always indicate when you can expect your funds right before you confirm the payment for the transfer.

The third transfer was a bit vexing because of the delay – after 7 hours, I still did not receive the funds. It clearly indicated I would get it within the day but a 7-hours TransferWise delay is not normal considering my experience with the previous transfers.

img_0228

So what went wrong and why was there a TransferWise delay? Their remittance partner was what went wrong and here’s how I found out.

img_0228-1

Tapping on View Transfer Details will bring up GET PDF RECEIPT.

img_0291

I did go to my bank branch to ask them if there was any pending transfer and I was told my account balance was up to date. I figured there must be a way to communicate directly with TransferWise’s remittance partner without waiting for the next day (I wasn’t getting any reply from TransferWise either). These are clear-cut processes and the only way a platform such as TransferWise gets to promise less than a day transfers is if they have a local remittance partner.

The bottom of the PDF receipt says:

img_0233

Tranglo does have a website and I was able to connect to an agent via live chat.

img_0234

img_0236

img_0237

img_0239

Less than an hour after that chat, I received a reply from TransferWise.

img_0241

 

Well, the bank clearly didn’t hold my funds as there were no funds to hold. I’m surprised they are still told to answer queries in that manner when customers know the obvious. The clearer version of the story was from Tranglo.

An hour after that chat, I received the confirmation from my bank’s mobile app that the amount has been credited. Took 10 hours for this to be rectified and, of course, Tranglo had to be the one to quickly resolve it because TransferWise had already done their part.

I still would recommend TransferWise because of their exchange rates. If you experience any TransferWise delays, make sure to check the pdf receipt of the said transfer so you can follow it up with their banking partner.

PayMaya Non-Dispense Dispute

You’ve only ever read about my complaints regarding GCash when it comes to non-dispense disputes as it has happened to me twice in Vietnam with two different bank ATM’s. Unfortunately I can now also add PayMaya to that list.

I had been frequently using my PayMaya physical card for ATM withdrawals since August 2019 in Bangkok and decided to continue using it upon coming back to Ho Chi Minh because it seemed the PHP-VND rate was better compared to PHP-THB.  Because I had gotten paranoid with 2 non-dispense incidents with GCash, I decided to follow my former landlord’s advice in the past about only transacting with either Sacombank or Vietcombank ATM machines.

That theory was busted when upon attempting to withdraw money on a Sacombank ATM on September 25, 2019 (the same bank ATM which I had been withdrawing money from for 3 weeks before that), I read an error message on the screen which says “Your bank does not allow you to perform this transaction”. I took out my card and reminded myself not to panic while looking at the balance in my PayMaya app. Nothing deducted. I reinserted the card and tried to withdraw again and my fears had materialised. I was shown the same error message and what’s worse, no money nor ATM slip came out but my PayMaya balance has already been deducted for the failed attempt.

img_6845

I went straight to the bank manager (even though I knew there was nothing they could do on their end). I was told the proverbial “contact your bank or card issuer”.

I contacted PayMaya via email but it wasn’t until a week has passed when I received a reply from their support team. Inside my head my good impression of them was already waning. Their so-called support team is inefficient and those who have responded to me were a bunch of liars. I was repeatedly told that their escalations team has tried to contact me many times via my mobile number. Well, guess what, my sister in the Philippines who has had my Smart postpaid sim inserted into her iPhone 5 cellphone has not answered any calls from someone claiming to be on PayMaya’s bogus escalations team before, during and after the email exchanges.

Since I was not getting any straightforward answers via email, I even took to the App Store review on the PayMaya app. Similar to their email support, it was only a waste of time.

I had begun to compare PayMaya’s support with that of GCash support and I can tell you right now that you can at least count on GCash to answer you honestly and promptly. PayMaya’s customer support will tell you comforting lies.

I expected the reversal of the non-dispense issue by October 16, 2019 because having already experienced it with GCash took me 3-4 weeks. Surprisingly on October 9, 2019 at 11PM, the reversal was already reflected in my PayMaya balance. The resolution took 14 days.

img_7126

The resolution time for non-dispense dispute is perhaps one of the striking advantages PayMaya has over GCash. GCash could refund my funds in 3-4 weeks only after submitting a dispute form while PayMaya could complete it within 2 weeks.

GCash versus PayMaya

img_5524

I have held off on writing about a GCash versus PayMaya article because until two months ago I was only a heavy GCash user. It’s pretty much evident I’ve encountered many problems transacting with GCash and that’s why I have been using my PayMaya account more frequently. Read more below for my GCash versus PayMaya update.

ATM Non-dispense Issue:

With my GCash MasterCard I have experienced non-dispense issues with an international bank’s ATM twice, spaced exactly a year apart. I detailed the first one here and the second unfortunate one happened earlier this year. The refund took 3 weeks. The solution I found for GCash non-dispense issue with international bank’s ATM was listening to the advice of my landlady’s son – to only use Sacombank’s ATM for withdrawing funds. I cannot discount the probability of the currencies involved for the conversion from Philippine Pesos to Vietnamese Dong as the factor for the ATM error. In Thailand, I have not had non-dispense issues using my GCash MasterCard (let’s not tempt fate!) but I do stick to one ATM machine only when withdrawing funds.

I have not used PayMaya to withdraw funds in Vietnam but have used it frequently this month in Bangkok and I can say I can go to my preferred ATM and not get paranoid as much as I would have when using GCash MasterCard.

Currency Conversion:

The caveat, though, when using the PayMaya Visa debit card for withdrawing funds at my preferred ATM here in Bangkok (Siam Commercial Bank), is the currency conversion. For example, XE Currency Exchange would tell me the exchange rate between PHP and THB is 1.67 but my PayMaya Visa ends up being charged using the 1.74-1.77 exchange rate. I believe this is purely a Visa issue and not PayMaya’s per se.

When I use my GCash MasterCard at a Siam Commercial Bank, it doesn’t assume the bank’s conversion rate for me. Rather, the ATM’s screen would prompt me to choose between “Yes” or “No, continue without conversion” once it shows me the bank’s exchange rate. Tapping on the latter saves me a bit more compared to using my PayMaya Visa.

When using PayMaya or GCash abroad for withdrawing funds at an ATM, the exchange rates with Visa and MasterCard are things you should consider.

Another type of transaction where I could really feel the pinch when it comes to using the PayMaya Visa debit card is with Agoda hotel bookings – typically those reservations which are “Book Now Pay Later” where the booking is guaranteed with a card and will be charged a few days before the check-in date. Using a 7-day reservation as an example, I notice I would get charged 7,500 PHP with my PayMaya Visa as opposed to only 7,200 PHP using my GCash MasterCard. I’ve paid bookings with both cards for over a 4-month period to notice the difference. Despite Agoda’s high exchange rates, I would still suggest using a MasterCard.

Ability to Transfer Funds:

I can transfer funds from my GCash to PayMaya via the Send Money > Send To Bank option in the GCash mobile app. PayMaya, on the other hand, seems to have already disabled the transfer funds or send money to GCash feature for quite a long time. GCash does this via InstaPay and it is as promised – instant – and free, too.

PayPal Transfer:

Many have encountered delays when it comes to PayPal to GCash cash-ins. The good news is PayMaya is just as quick when transferring funds from PayPal to PayMaya but I would advise you to convert your USD to PHP first before attempting to do so.

Customer Support:

If you want to quickly resolve your GCash cash-ins via PayPal delays, I would advise you to go to a nearest Globe center and report the problem to a Globe agent. If you cannot go in person, you can write an authorisation letter and send someone instead to lodge the dispute case for you. Do not attempt to call 2882 when the Globe agent advises you to do so after filing your dispute for refund – have a Globe agent call 2882 for you on their mobile phones. It is really stupid how calling 2882 only works when a Globe agent is doing so on your behalf.

Even though I have often stressed sending a dispute form to GCash’s email support – support@gcash.com – nothing beats going to a Globe center in person or via a proxy to have your GCash disputes quickly resolved.

Needless to say, I have not had delays with PayMaya transfers. I should warn you, though, that it is pointless to contact PayMaya’s email support or message them via FB Messenger (PayMaya Cares). I once contacted PayMaya via email and they only replied to me after a week and the customer service agents made the situation even worse because their replies were all false promises and lies. With PayMaya it is best to wait for the disputed funds to be available. Don’t waste time contacting them unless it is for an upgrade follow-up.

System Maintenance Glitches:

GCash users would usually get notified of system maintenance updates via text message. This means all GCash transactions attempts will be disabled. I noticed GCash would schedule theirs between 10pm-2am. Last month I had a problem with an Agoda “Book Now Pay Later” booking because of this system maintenance incident. The funds for the booking were supposed to be debited from my GCash MasterCard by 1am Bangkok time. System was still down by 2am and because I had set my Agoda booking to auto-debit my GCash card, the inevitable system glitch took the amount from my GCash balance. When Agoda attempted to charge my card again later that day, it was unsuccessful because GCash had the funds floating somewhere in my account. Agoda verified they had not received the amount so my booking ended up being unpaid.

As I mentioned above, I requested my mother to go to a Globe center on my behalf and a Globe agent showed her a printed statement of my GCash account which proved Agoda did not receive anything. My funds were returned 3 days later because of that crucial printout. If I only relied on email support, the funds would have been returned to me 3 weeks after.

The solution I found for the problem I described above was to transfer my GCash funds to my mother’s GCash account as she also has a GCash MasterCard. During the day (when there is less likely to be system outages), I would email Agoda to request for a change in the card (my GCash MasterCard) associated with the booking). Within a few minutes I would get a call from an Agoda agent and I could then enter my mother’s GCash MasterCard via the secure line for card change.

Rebates:

I would occasionally get coupons or discounts with my GCash account but I could not use them overseas. PayMaya has a lot of promos and rebates especially when I’m using my PayMaya physical card to buy groceries or swipe my card for in-store purchases. I received PhP1,000 in September 2019 and in October 2019 I got rebates of almost 100%.
