If you’re looking for a convenient way to transfer fund to any member of your family or friends or clients or business partners through BPI, this short and simple article is for you. Today, I will share 3 easy steps to enable BPI transfer to anyone feature of your online banking.
Make sure you activated online banking feature of your BPI account. Now before we start, I want to be clear that BPI transfer to anyone is much easier if we’re going to use their app which is free to download from App store or Google Play.
If you can’t use the app by any chance, I will also share the steps on how to manually enroll BPI transfer to anyone with your BPI online banking.
Assuming you’ve downloaded the app for your smartphone or tablet you can now follow these 3 easy steps to enable BPI transfer to anyone.
How to enable BPI transfer to anyone
1. Login to the BPI Express Mobile app
2. Select More > Enable Transfer to Anyone
3. Fill in the required fields, choose your preferred activation option and submit the request. If you choose Via Express Teller Machine, you will be asked to activate your request via any BPI ATM using the ATM card of the account you specified.
Please do so within 5 days after filing the request.
Select Special Services > Activate Enrollments > Express Online. You will receive the activation code via email after 10 minutes.
*The step above is the most convenient way to activate BPI transfer to anyone. That’s what I did. I suggest you do the same. If you want the manual process, see the instructions below.
If you choose Via Signed Form, you will be sent an email with a request form attached. Please print, fill out, and sign the form. Forward the original document to:
9th Floor BPI Card Center, Paseo de Roxas, Makati City.
Once received, you will receive an email containing the activation code.
In case you get an error advising you of a pending request:
Login to Express Online and select Account Maintenance > Cancel Pending Enrollment > cancel the pending request.
Re-file the request via the BPI Express Mobile app
If you are still not able to file the request, or you have not yet received the activation code within the set amount of time, please call 89-100.
Ok since the steps above to enable BPI transfer to anyone is for smartphone users, I will also share on how you can enable BPI transfer to anyone using your BPI online express account. This is assuming that you’ve already enrolled and activated your BPI online banking feature. If not, you may follow my tutorial on my previous article.
Here are the steps.
1. Go to https://www.bpiexpressonline.com and Login to your account
2. On the menu above, click Fund Transfer and click Enroll Third Party Accounts. See image below.
3. On the next screen, select the process most appropriate for you on how you want to enroll 3rd party accounts. I suggest the #2 since you just need to bring the form to your BPI branch.
4. On the next screen, you will now add the 3rd party account you want to enroll. Make sure you double check the information. See image below.
Maximum number of accounts that can be enrolled in one card number is 20 but up to a maximum of 140 accounts per client.
“Accounts” include bills/merchants enrolled in Bills Payment, government institutions enrolled for payments, Express Cash/Express Money Order cards enrolled for reloading, prepaid mobile numbers enrolled in Prepaid Cellphone Reload facility and all your third party account enrollments.
Eligible Third Party Accounts for Funds Transfer Facility:
Express Teller Savings/Checking Accounts (Individual Account)
Passbook Savings Account (Individual Account)
Maxi Accounts for Individuals
Platinum Savings/Platinum for Kids
BPI Direct Savings and Checking Accounts
5. On the next screen, a confirmation will appear. Make sure that you have the correct information. Click Submit and Print to continue.
6. Once you printed the document, the next step is to go to your respected BPI branch and submit it to them. Tell the bank officer that you’re going to enroll 3rd party account to your BPI online banking.
That’s it! After enrollment and activation, you can now use BPI transfer to anyone feature. This is very convenient if you’re always need to transfer money to a different BPI account.

Somehow, I don’t understand why my “transfer to anyone” doesn’t work in my mobile.
It used to work before, but when my phone reformatted and lost the app, I re-downloaded it and it doesn’t work anymore.
I keeps saying “You have a pending request filed using another device”
Never experience this. Do you have access to your online account? Try to check any pending requests there or better to call customer service if needed. 🙂
I’ve experienced this before. I guess it’s BPI’s security feature to automatically disable your transfer to anyone capabilities when you reformat your device. There should be a cancel pending application shown on the message. Click that and repeat the activation process for transfer to anyone feature. Also note that you would have to do the activation process for all of your other devices.

I have an inquiry to ask though, my boyfriend provided me a scanned copy with signature of the form for the “Third party funds transfer enrollment form”
Is it okay if I will be the one to send it to his bank to activate this feature? is there an authorization letter needed? He’s currently working overseas so he cannot provide it personally.
Hope to hear from you soonest!
Never experience this before but I think authorization is needed since his the owner of the account. 🙂
Did you already try to inquire this? what’s their response to this? hope you can reply 😀 we have same case here

Hi my other smartphone was enrolled in BPI transfer to anyone. When I am using my other smartphone, i cannot transfer to anyone. Is it only applied to the smartphone unit that you activate it?
Yes, it’s only available for a single device. Thanks!
If I activate the Transfer to anyone on the smartphone will it also be activated on the BPI Online?
Hi. Ang transfer to anyone ba ay for my BPI account to another BPI account lang? Kailangan ko kasi sana magtransfer to a BDO account. Sa enroll third party accouny na ba ito? Kasi kung third party, kailangan pa i-mail yung form and medyo hassle 🙁
YEs only BPI to BPI. I don’t know bank that allow transfer from a certain bank to another. I guess that is not allowed yet here in the Philippines.
is there a transfer fee?
I already received the activation code, but where am I suppose to enter the activation code?
Hello po! Ask ko lng po yung kung ano ilalagay dun sa joint account indicator? Saka pagkatransfer po ng pera sa acc ko pwede po ba agad mkapagpaprint ng bank cert? Tapos pede po ulit itransfer pabalik ulit ung pera? Thanks po!

Gerlie Aranas says
hi . ask ko lang paano maaactivate ulit ung transfer to anyone ko . nung nag activate kasi ako sa phone then next step nga ung pumunta sa atm. hindi ko na activate agad. 2weeks bago ko na activate sa atm kaso nman nag eemail sakin ng confirmation . dahil ata ndi ko naupdate ng within 5days. pano po kaya un ?
BPI Transfer to Anyone is risky once activated and here’s the reason why:
1. If your smartphone is compromised – bad guys can easily transfer the fund literally to any BPI account.
2. This process has no secondary protection (e.g. separate pin code for fund transfer).
3. BPI is not using OTP and their password is limited to alphanumeric (no special characters allowed) and less than 15 chars only.
This is a good feature if extra layer of protections are added like OTP (similar to BDO).
pano pag PASSBOOK. kC i went to the bpi mismo and wla daw feature na puedeng mag fund transfer sa PAssbook account. eh sobrang hassle kase mag deposit. better services sana kung puede ang online transfers esp scheduled transfers
Is a checking account transfer from bpi to bpi family savings bank possible? Tyvm. Need your advise badly.
hi, thank you it help a lot to me which a beginner in a BPI.
But I just want to comment in BPI transfer online cause it is not convenient to us which is/are a depositor in the said bank.
I hope the way in transferring money through online will be like the BDO and RCBC bank cause it is so convenient.
Thank You !!!
Pano po magcancel ng pending request…
maari bang e transfer ang fund sa ATM to Passbook Savings? o kailan talaga mag open ulit ako ng account sa Passbook tapos e close q yung Current ATM ko. need Help po thanks
Yes you can kathy. You can also request an ATM for your existing passbook account if I’m not mistaken. Thanks!

On the email that you registered your account with.

This may sound silly but do you own the ATM accounts?
