In a previous post, we discussed how you can open a BPI Pamana Padala account for sending remittances to your loved ones in the Philippines. Today, we are going to talk about another convenient feature offered by the Bank of the Philippines Islands: the BPI Mobile app.
The BPI Mobile app can be used to transfer money between BPI accounts — anytime and anywhere in the world! It’s perfect for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are looking for quick, easy, and hassle-free ways of sending remittances to their families back home.
