  3. Philippines【About "Deposit into Bank Account" to the Philippines】

    * If the "Deposit-into-bank accoun" is taken in the Philippines, only the account number is checked to ensure that it matches the Receiver's Bank account designated by the customer, and no steps are taken to ensure that the account holder matches the name of the receiver. As such, when taking the Credit-to-Account method in the Philippines, it is particularly important to ensure that the account number for the Receiver's Bank Account is accurate. Therefore, we encourage you to be extra careful when registering the receiver's information.

    * About money transfers to some banks: If the receiving bank account is a passbook account, the money will not be processed and refunded back to your account. If the receiving bank is an ATM account, money is available to be received. Please confirm HERE, the list of receiving banks.

    * Allied Banking Corporation (Allied Bank) was merged with The Philippine National Bank (PNB). For this reason, if your receiving bank is an old allied bank account, you must designate "Allied Bank" as your receiving bank instead of "PNB".
