Transferring funds from one bank to another in the Philippines can be done using an Inter-Bank Funds Transfer (IBFT) option.
One of the ways to do this is using participating banks in the “BancNet” system, and this allows real-time transfers 24 hours a day, Monday to Sunday! (Real-time = The amount will be deducted instantly from the sending account and added instantly to the receiving account.)
This can be done online, (PC or mobile phone), or at an any BancNet-affiliated ATM.
A service charge of P25.00 will be debited to the senders account, for every IBFT transaction.
There is no limit on the amount that can be transferred between accounts.
