Bank to bank transfer in Philippines

m0t0k0m0t0k0 SydneyTotal Reaction Points: 1Member
Good day mates.

It's been great living in Sydney for 3 years and one of the things I love is the bank to bank transfer here in Australia (no fees too).

Is there anything like this in the Philippines? When I was there 3 years ago I had to use cheques, has there been progress that allows transferring from my BPI account to BDO via online transfer? I tried the BPI fund transfer to 3rd party but it seems to be limited to BPI accounts. Any suggestions how I can transfer money in peso from one PH bank to another PH bank both in peso currency?

    Unfortunately, interbank transfer is still not a thing in the Philippines. I've hear a lot of tech companies trying to set it up (pesonet, justpayto), but banks likes to function independently so it will probably take some time.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
