Being able to transfer money from your BPI account to other local banks online is convenient. There’s no need for you to withdraw the money from your account then go to another bank to deposit. You can also do it anytime anywhere as long as you have a secure and stable internet connection.
Usually, transfers to other local banks has a transaction fee of P50.00 per transaction. But since March, this transaction fee has been temporarily waived and BPI is yet to announce when they would start collecting fees for this transaction again. This means that if you’re going to transfer money from your BPI account to another local bank now, no fees will be deducted from you, at least for now.
This is how you can transfer money from your BPI account to another local bank. Note that to be able to do this, you have to have a BPI Online Account.
