Prepaid Visa or Mastercard in Phil


Recommended Posts


Interesting. This thread got 3 pages with mostly useless posts regarding the OP's question. There is one post that addresses what the OP is after, the Unionbank debit card option, which I have checked as I need the same thing. Thanks Guenther for be on spot.

Not easy to get debit card in the Phils - simply because banks do not offer it. They all have credit cards only, with a ton of requirement and hassle.

Unionbank seems pretty straightforward, 2 photo ID-s and open an account. For USD account you have to deposit 500 bucks. Once you have an account with them, you can get debit card and EON card for online purchases. Next week I will go and shift most of my money from BPI to Unionbank.

Not sure if this is any help, but we bank at Bank of Commerce, and they will issue you a credit card if you deposit !00000pesos for the acard account.
