For the first time in my life, I was disappointed with EON (Union Bank). I used to get my money within 2 business days but it has been 3 days and I haven’t received my cash yet. I made a Paypal withdrawal last Monday afternoon and sent it to my EON account expecting that I will get it by Wednesday evening, at 6PM to be exact because it has been always like that. Wednesday came and I didn’t get what I expected. I checked again today at 6PM, still nothing. 7PM… 8PM… nothing! I was supposed to leave early today since I’m going to Batangas but because I didn’t have the money yet, I couldn’t leave right away. I just decided to borrow money from my sister. Then I gave it another try with PS Bank ATM. My boyfriend was with me and we were both so relieved when I was able to finally withdraw my money! At long last! It turned out that my funds became available to my EON account by 9PM, Thursday. Whew!
My boyfriend was the one who has a lot of negative reactions about it but I told him that it’s still acceptable knowing that Paypal has a disclaimer about bank transfers. Though the transfer has been completed on Paypal’s end, still, the bank has its own system and the transfer could take 2-4 business days. Of course I was also disappointed especially that it caused a lot of delays. Such a hassle! I’m hoping that it won’t happen again.
