As more financial institutions go digital, more products and services are being made available online or through mobile apps to make banking easier, more accessible, and more convenient for clients.
The new BPI Mobile app is no exception. It recently expanded its list of prepaid merchants to help clients load their accounts with just a few taps and clicks.
You can now load prepaid mobile numbers from practically all networks — Globe, Touch Mobile, Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun — using funds from your BPI account.
You just need to log on to your BPI Mobile app, input the mobile number and choose the amount you wish to load, then do the usual verification process to complete the transaction. (See “How to Reload a Prepaid Phone.”)
Loading prepaid accounts can also be done on the BPI Online platform.
Aside from loading prepaid numbers, you can also use the BPI Mobile app to load your Meralco and Cignal prepaid accounts. You just follow the same procedure for reloading your prepaid mobile phone numbers.
Moreover, Cignal subscribers also have the option to use their BPI accounts to do advance payments or pay for add-ons like Pay-Per-View. This can also be done via BPI Mobile app or BPI Online.
Soon you can expect more merchants and cooler features from the BPI Mobile app and BPI Online platform as BPI continues its digital transformation journey.
