INSTAPAY is now the fastest way to transfer money online from one bank to another bank in the Philippines
on the condition that both sending and receiving entities are participants of INSTAPAY.
The fee for sending online depends on your bank. It ranges from 5 pesos to 50 pesos.
Note: Because of the covid-19 crisis, many banks have been offering Instapay transfers for FREE until further notice.
There’s NO FEE for receiving money. Only the sending account is charged.
You can send up to 50,000 pesos per transaction. Ask your bank if there’s a minimum amount to send and if there’s a maximum for the total amount you’re able to send within a day.
