The new UnionBank Eon Digital Me offers more convenience compared to the old Unionbank Eon Visa Debit card which has your name on it.
You don’t have to go personally to the bank for submission of requirements and wait 3-5 days for your card to be available.
In the New Eon Visa card, you can just buy it at any selected 7-eleven branch or at Lazada.
In regards to the selected branches of 7-eleven, you can just ask the CSR on their Facebook page which is EON ph and username eonbankph.
What’s the Difference Between Buying at 7-eleven and at Lazada?
When buying at 7-eleven, you need to contact the customer service of eon which can be done by locating their FB page which is Eon ph and username of eonbankph. By doing this, it saves you a lot of time from going randomly at any 7-eleven store hoping they sell Eon Visa card.
Once the customer service replies, usually around 2 hrs, you can be sure where to buy your Eon Visa card. Upon visiting the said 7-eleven of your choice make sure to ask the teller and inform them what is UnionBank eon in case they tell you they don’t know. If you have pictures to show what it is then the better. It’s just they are not familiar with it. That’s why you need to let them check again or let them ask their manager.
When Buying at Lazada, you don’t need anymore to ask their customer service representative about the specific locations. Just wait for the said date of delivery. The downside when choosing to buy at Lazada is that if it’s the only item you need to buy, then you need to pay for the shipping.

How Many Days For the Money to Transfer PayPal to UnionBank Eon Visa Card?
Usually 2-4 business days. If you request a withdraw on Saturday, usually PayPal will inform through email it will be on the 4th day, but the money will arrive on your eon Visa card on the 3rd day at night or at dawn on the 4th day.
Update: You will notice that once you withdraw from PayPal to your bank, you will receive it the next day (except Saturday and Sunday). I’m not quite sure why, but probably on March 2018, EON texted me that once you link your PayPal to your card, you will receive it the next day, but it’s not the case for a month in my end. On the second month, I constantly receive my money from PayPal the next day.
