How to transfer money at BPI Online via QR Code

Last May 31, 2019, BPI has announced that they will begin charging transaction fees for online money transfers, starting this July 1. Transaction fees will be imposed for those who transfer money online to other banks and unenrolled BPI accounts (except if via QR code).¬†Although it will only cost 10 or 50 php per transaction, it will still cost a lot if you usually do several transactions per month. Since according to BPI they will waive the transaction fees for a limited time if we use their QR Code feature, let’s learn how to do it while it’s still FREE.

 

First off, let’s learn how to generate the QR CODE.

You need to do these steps if you are the RECEIVER of money at a BPI online transaction.




1. LOGIN to your BPI Online Account. You can login either through their website (https://online.bpi.com.ph/portalserver/onlinebanking/sign-in) while using your desktop or laptop, or their mobile app using your phone.

4. Choose the ACCOUNT which needs a BPI QR Code. Then, indicate a NICKNAME for that account. If for example you’re using it for your online business, you can indicate the name of your online store in the nickname section. If you’re just using this feature for personal reasons, you can literally put just your nickname in it.
