Since the age of the automated teller machine (ATM), the Bank of the Philippine Islands more known as BPI has established itself as the frontrunner in technology-based banking services. After the ATM came information kiosks that paralleled the ATM without dispensing cash, and while this was happening, rival banks had to create consortiums to compete with the network of ATMs that BPI had already installed, nationwide. The rest, as they say, is history.
But online nowadays isn’t just using the traditional desktop computer. With the advent of small devices and the integration of computing power in handheld cellular phones, a torrent of new, inexpensive computing devices such as laptops, notebooks, tablets and smartphones are everyone’s device to fulfil online banking using a BPI bank account.
Here are some of the online banking activities you can do with your BPI account:
- View real-time balances of your Deposits, Consumer Loans, Credit Cards, Investments and Express Cash Accounts;
- Transfer funds between your own deposit accounts enrollled in BPI Express Online and to the accounts of your family members, relatives and friends;
- Pay your utilities, loans, insurance, ISPs, country club fees and a host of other bills online;
- Reload your own or someone else’s Globe Handyphone or Touch Mobile (TM) prepaid phone;
- Apply for a deposit account, auto or housing loan, credit card, E-Credit, or Express Cash accounts online;
- Request for a Stop Payment order of issued checks real time;
- Re-order checkbooks, request for copies of financial documents and other credit card related services;
- Request for Credit Card replacement, conversion, increase in credit limit, reactivation and other Credit Card services. You can also update your billing address online.
If you live in the Philippines, enrollling your existing BPI account can simply be done online. After enrollment, the only requirement is to visit a BPI Express Teller ATM within 20 days. Outside the Philippines, one must complete the online enrollment, and print, sign and mail the duly accomplished form. You can even enroll any of your individual, sole proprietorship, or joint (and/or) ATM-based deposit accounts.
Why enroll for online access? For one, you have full control of your finances with BPI Express Online. But the most important benefit is no need to wait for long queues in the branches just to pay your bills or transfer funds. BPI Express Online makes it very simple, easy and hassle free. Your computing device becomes your own personal banking center.
For those living outside the Philippines, simply maintaining your BPI account allows you to do all the online banking activities listed above using your computing device via the Internet. There is no cost to using BPI Express Online.
