Hi kababayans! I need help regarding setting up my billing method as a company client. The option says thru credit card and paypal only but I don't have both options. I do have a Paypal accound but I can't get my account verified because they need a credit card added.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you in advance!
You don't need a credit card to verify, as long as the card has a Visa/Mastercard logo, it will work, although some freelancers I know says BDO does not work with Paypal anymore.
Freelancers I know have verified their account using:
(with Visa/Mastercard logos, of course.)
One more way to verify is to use Globe's Gcash feature. I have done that and had no issues since.
With regards to Upwork billing method, only credit card is available method for Philippines. Paypal option is not yet available. I just cancelled the project because I don't have credit card for payment to my freelancers.
The Globe Gcash feature I used to verify my Paypal is what they call a "Virtual Amex Card". I use that to fund my projects, it basically has the parts of an American Express card: the card number, CVV2 Code, Expiration date, only it is not a credit card, I fund it by sending money to my Gcash account.
What I meant to say was, the Virtual Amex Card feature which I used to verify Paypal can also be used to fund Upwork to pay freelancers. I know so because I have done it several times. Like I said, it has all card information needed: Card number, expiration date, cvv2 code etc. you need only enter the information and make sure that your Gcash has the funds to make a payment.
