What information do I need from my recipient to send bank transfers to the Philippines?

  • Full name. Please enter your recipient’s full name. To avoid any delays, the recipient’s name should match the name on their bank statement exactly.
  • Address. We need your recipient’s city.
  • Account details. We need your recipient’s bank and account number:
    1. Metrobank: Metrobank accounts are usually 13-digits long (eg. 0123456789010). However, if your recipient only has a 10 digit number, take the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th digits (eg. 0123456789) and input them at the front of the account number. This will make it 13 digits in total (eg. 1230123456789).
    2. Philippine National Bank (PNB): Accounts are normally 12 digits long.
    3. LandBank: Accounts are normally 10 or 16 digits long.
    4. Banco de Oro (BDO): Accounts are normally 12 digits long.
    5. Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI): Account number (10 digits long).
    6. Any other bank accounts in the Philippines: A maximum of PHP 300,000 per transfer.
  • Mobile number. We use this to send an SMS notification to your recipient informing them that their funds have been credited.
  • Email (optional). We use this to send an email to your recipient with details of the transaction. This is particularly useful in case they have issues receiving the SMS notifications.
  • Sending reason. Please indicate whether it is “family or friend support,” “purchase of services,” “property payment,” or “sending fund to self”.

Please ensure that all your recipient’s details are correct. Once you make your transaction, it’s difficult for us to amend or stop the transfer, although we will always try our best to do so.
