What does Metrobankdirect have to offer?
We know most Filipinos are unenthusiastic when it comes to dealing with banks. First, most banks have inconvenient office hours. You need to leave work just to do your banking needs. Secondly, there seem to be too many requirements and steps to do to acquire a banking service.
Metrobankdirect helps you get your banking needs in just a few clicks.
But is it really convenient?

Having your bank pay your bills makes your finances easy to manage. There is no need to track various due dates. Via the Register a Biller tab, you can register your biller. You can even choose if you want the bank to pay it one-time or recurring up to 3 years. If you want to check your scheduled payments, you can view it via the Pending Payments tab. In case you change your mind, simply unregister a biller through the Unregister a Biller tab. You can also change or cancel the scheduled payment.
You can actually transfer funds to your own accounts, unregistered third party and registered the third party. Unlike with other e-banking services which require the user to register the third party accounts before you can make a transfer.
You can register a third party account just by keying in the account number you are enrolling. Make sure that the account number is accurate to successfully register and transfer funds. You can opt not to register a third party and just transfer some funds. However, you can only transfer up to Php 5,000.00.
While you can transfer from a single account towards multiple accounts, you can’t transfer funds from multiple accounts to a single account. Metrobankdirect currently does not support this service.
If you regularly transfer funds with the same details, you can just click the Save button which appears after a fund transfer has been done. All the information including the amount, remarks and account number will be saved. This way there is no need to input the same details every time you make the same transfer activity. You can even schedule the fund transfer.
With Metrobankdirect, you can order up to nine checkbooks per request and schedule the checkbook reorder via One Time Schedule or Recurring Schedule. The recurring schedule can be set up to three years. In case you want to view your created checkbook reorder, you can do so through the Pending Reorder Checkbook tab. You can also either change some details or cancel the reorder.
If you have multiple accounts, you can enroll them to Metrobankdirect. You can even enroll a third party. If you change your mind, you can unenroll accounts. You can also designate which among your multiple accounts will be used for bill payments, fund transfer, and tax payment. However, you can assign only 1 account for stock trading transactions.
