How to transfer fund from one bank to another?

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Banking on March 27, 2012

I have multiple accounts from different banks. I would like to know how i can transfer fund from one bank to another (ex. Bpi to BDO). Does this fall under wire transfer? Is there any corresponding charges? If yes, how much. Im trying to do an envelope system using my savings accounts.


At current, you can only transfer from one bank account to another if they’re both the same bank. This is mostly for the account holder’s protection, and also to avoid banks from being used to launder money.

    Up ko lang po ang question na ‘to. I’d like to know the answer to this one too. In other countries they normally had interbank fund transfer for free, in SG they call it GIRO. I wonder if we have the same facility in PH

    I usually just “Cash out”. I have 2 banks as well. that’s BPI (my save-up account and payroll account) and BDO (my life savings account) I usually withdraw my money at BPI and transfer it to BDO. which is a tasking to do twice a month. BPI electronic banking lets you link all your accounts with bpi, im not sure about other accounts from other banks though. šŸ™

    You can make interbank fundtransfer thru your atm account. Just use the atm machine with your atm card and make a fund transfer transaction. I already tried, and use this feature several times. Just remember that you can only make interbank fund transfer thru your atm/savings account. Checking account is not allowed. Also, fund transfer fees are very minimal. Its less than P30.00 <<<the reason why banks do not promote this. šŸ™‚

    In myBDO online account, all you need to do is to Enroll Other accounts like your BPI accounts. Once enrolled online, you need to print it and pass it to your corresponding bank, then they will approve it. It will take a while though. You can also use the ATM card to activate the enrollment. Anyway, you will be given a code online and instruction on how you can do it.
    If you have two BDO accounts, just enroll it under My Accounts (I can’t remember but it sounds like that) and there is no need to activate it. Your other BDO account will be automatically added. There is also no fee in transferring funds from BDO to BDO. But there will be a fee for a BDO to another bank account, not sure how much.

    Thanks Eva!

    BPI and Metrobank (my banks) have “enroll 3rd party accounts” options, which is probably similar to that myBDO functionaly.

    I’ve never tried using them though. Probably won’t now that i know there’s a fee. There’s a metrobank and BPI (and even BDO) very close to where i work. I’d rather get the exerrcise than shell out Php30 (or even Php10 -yes, I don’t withdraw from a different ATM than my account. I don’t even “take advantage” of the 2.50 fee of psbank-metrobank cross withdrawal)

    Which banks are good for interbank transfers?

    I have an RCBC account, but I want to transfer to BPI, Union Bank, BDO & Metrobank.

    My RCBC lets me transfer to several banks, but not the ones i want to (above).

    Any suggestions on a bank I can use to transfer to all of these banks?

    How long does it take to transfer money from ps bank to a bpi atm account?

  18. PJ Lazaro says:

    @KC, enroll your Landbank account to iAccess in any LBP branch (online enrollment to iAccess will not activate fund transfer feature so you have to go to the branch) then download the Landbank app on Appstore. Fund transfer feature is disabled on non-iOS devices.

  20. Alfie says:

    Yes, you can transfer Unionbank to BPI but could take 2-3 banking days. While PNB to Landbank, real time ang transfer. Both had transfer fees. If I am not mistaken sa Unionbank to BPI 100php while PNB to Landbank, 20.00php.

  21. Sara Smith says:

    This is all so ridiculous! In Europe and US everyone uses online banking only. You just type in the bank account number of any bank in any country and the money is sent. No need to enroll, no need to use an ATM, no need to take out cash and physically bring it over. What is the problem here in the Philippines? Why are banks here so behind and force customers to do the job that the bank should be doing for the customers?

    Money matters, so they can charge for the transaction
