One of the benefits of the Internet is the ability to perform banking transactions using only your computer or mobile phone. If you are a Metrobank depositor, you’ll realize how easy it is to transfer money from your Metrobank account to other banks without stepping foot outside your home.
Before the days of online banking, you can only transfer or deposit money to a bank account by personally going to the bank, filling out a deposit slip, and then waiting in line for your turn. It can be quite time-consuming especially during peak banking hours. Thankfully, you’ll no longer have to endure long queues at the bank because you can perform most banking transactions on the Internet.
With Metrobank Online, you can transfer money from Metrobank to other banks such as BDO and BPI using your computer or mobile device. Fund transfers coursed through InstaPay are processed in real-time so the money arrives at the recipient’s account almost instantly. Transfers through PESONet are not instant but will be credited before the end of the day if done before 3:00 PM on Mondays to Fridays (except holidays).
Aside from sending money, Metrobank Online also allows you to perform other banking transactions such as checking your account balance and previous transactions, paying your bills, making cardless withdrawals, buying prepaid load, and ordering checkbooks.

How to Transfer Funds Using the Metrobank Mobile App
Metrobank also has a mobile banking application which you can download from Google Play or the App Store. The mobile app allows you to perform transactions such as transfers, withdrawals and bills payments using only your smartphone and a decent Internet connection.
The difference between the Metrobank online banking website and the mobile banking app is that the app allows you to select either InstaPay or PESONet. The online banking website automatically selects InstaPay and will only use PESONet if InstaPay is not available at that moment.

Step 2: After logging in, tap the menu icon on the upper-left corner.

InstaPay has a ₱25 fee per transaction and a ₱50,000 daily transaction limit per source account, while PESONet has a ₱100 transaction fee and a ₱200,000 daily transaction limit per source account.
Step 5: Choose the target beneficiary for the fund transfer. Select an enrolled non-Metrobank account or click “Transfer” under “One-Time Transfer” to transfer money to a non-enrolled account.
