I’ve been trying to find information on how to top up my Paypal using different credit cards services but there is no real online guide on how to top up your Paypal account. There’s also no guide on how to put money on Paypal if you are in the Philippines. Well I decided to help my fellow web professionals by creating a simple guide.
Can I transfer funds from GCash to Paypal? Yes you can, all you need is to follow this guide. GCash is a MasterCard and if you have Paypal linked to it, you can add another Paypal and link that to the same GCash MasterCard for fund transfers. I’ve seen the internet give the wrong answer this query so I decided to create a guide to help everyone in the Philippines. Do I hear SEO hero?

This Guide is divided in to three parts:

Okay lets pretend you want to buy an item online and you are in the Philippines. The website only accepts Paypal so here’s what you do.
Create an account on the website and go to checkout to see the total amount you have to pay for.
Okay Let’s say the amount is $47.99. Remember that amount and quickly login to your Paypal using a cellphone or laptop. I want to feel good when I do technical SEO and link building for clients so I need this in my office. I have two Paypal emails: firstname.lastname@example.org(primary) and email@example.com(secondary). Let’s start with firstname.lastname@example.org(call this Primary Paypal).
My primary account only has $39.99 I need more money so I need to go to a 711 to find a Cliqq or Gcash Kiosk so I can add money to my account that is tied to this Paypal Email.
I will make a quick run to a convenience store with my money and phone so I can top up my GCash so I can use it for Paypal.
Sadly the GCash Kiosk is unavailable so I move on to the next convenience store.
Aha! 711 has a CliQQ kiosk. This will Work.
Here’s the Ultimate Guide to topping up your GCash or simply adding money to GCash via Cliqq kiosk.
Go to the Cliqq Kiosk Select E-Money.
Select Gcash Cash in.
Input Your Phone number and amount you wish to top up.
Click on Next and print the barcode or simply take a picture using your cellphone.
Go to the counter and present your pictures or printed barcodes.
Verify that the information is correct and pay the lovely lady.
Check your phone for a message that verifies the transaction.
Check your GCash App.
Keep in mind that Kiosks have a Php 10,000 transfer limit per transaction.
Make sure you keep the receipt for taxation purposes – hahaha! Because reasons.
Now that we have money in the bank, we can now proceed with topping up our Paypal using GCash.
How To Top Up Your Paypal using GCash
Login to your GCash App to check the available amount
Login to primary Paypal account, in my case email@example.com.
Create an invoice
Address the invoice to secondary account which in my case is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Input the amount and details.
Send the invoice.
Logout of your primary Paypal Email.
Login to your secondary Paypal Email.
Select the new invoice and pay via debit or credit card. My GCash is a MasterCard so I will select MasterCard.
Click on Pay invoice.
Wait for confirmation.
Check your confirmation message or check GCash to see if the amount was deducted.
Logout of your secondary Paypal email.
Login to the Primary Paypal email to see the amount.
There you go, a no bullshit guide to topping up your Paypal through GCash.
You can skip the Kiosk card if you have online banking in which case you just need to transfer money to GCASH then proceed with Paypal to create the invoice.
How do I Put Money In My PayPal Account?
Get a credit or debit card and link it Paypal. In this example I used GCash which is Master Card Debit Card. Just Link it with Paypal, make sure both GCash and Paypal are verified then send and invoice to you debit card. Pay it with the debit card and the funds should get transferred with no problems to your Paypal.
Now all I have to do is wait for that amazing jacket so I can use it for link building or simply while playing Gundam Battle Operation 2. It is the closest thing to a jumpsuit for my Gunner Gundam. Til then, Build Links and Shoot Straight!
