“We Find Ways” -- Who can ever forget the tagline of the largest bank in the Philippines? BDO is a full-service universal bank in the Philippines with the largest distribution network of over 1,400 operating branches and offices and more than 4,400 ATMs nationwide. Across the globe, they have a total of 16 international offices in North America, Europe, Middle East, and Asia. They have also been awarded as a “Top Remittance Bank” by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
One way of sending remittances is through the BDO Kabayan Savings Account, a special account for Filipino overseas and beneficiaries. With only one valid ID required and an initial deposit of Php 50, BDO has made it easy and hassle-free. It comes with an international ATM card and a passbook that customers can get upon account opening. Another product from BDO Unibank is the BDO Remit Cash Card, an electronic ATM card that also works like a debit card. It can be purchased at any BDO Remit office and remittance partner abroad and have it sent to their families in the Philippines.
Another option is to use the BDO Remit Cash Pick-up Anywhere service where they can send money from abroad and have it claimed by their beneficiaries at more than 3,000 BDO Remit Cash Pick-up locations in the Philippines. For remittance transactions coming from some partners/tie-ups, BDO may charge a service fee to be collected from the beneficiary.
