International remittance via LBC ATM

by on September 22, 2005

There was also an LBC desk at Lucky Plaza, Singapore.

LBC has a service called “LBC Money Remittance”. What caught my attention is the instant remittance via ATM card.

The recipient will need to apply for the card at LBC bank in the Philippines prior to the transaction. When an OFW in Singapore sends a remittance, the amount is reflected in the recipient’s ATM in the Philippines within 15 seconds. The recipient can then withdraw the money immediately from any Megalink ATM (LBC Bank is part of the Megalink network).

As an aside, I was also delighted that that there are financial services for OFWs in Singapore that allow them to send SSS payments to the Philippines. This is what I meant when I wrote in the past that I want the OFWs to control where their remittances go. SSS is a start. G-Cash now allows sending tuition fees to some G-Cash partner-universities. Later on, I’d like to see OFWs being able to send money straight to the hospital (for regular health care of relatives), straight to a bank as amortization for a house, straight to a savings account in the Philippines, or straight to an investment product in the Philippines.

Para naman hindi ma-sayang ang remittance sa pag-inom ni Tito Boy, o sa Piyesta, o sa “gimmick” ni Kuya.

With the emerging technologies, it’s just a matter of time.

  • mirriam taberna

    my mom sent me a card (lbc remittance) intended for withdrawals only last June but until now ur company was not able to give my mom my own pin that is why until she used to send my money through western union…i was so disaapointed because we’re three who used this before.

  • http://eofw.edongskey.com ka edong

    hi mirriam,

    1.) I’m not connected with LBC

    2.) LBC contacts in US: http://www.teamlbc.com/04abtct.html

    Or visit the nearby LBC branch and inquire. Goodluck!

  • http://eofw.edongskey.com ka edong

    in a related story, may naka-sunod ako sa pila ng BPI ATM sa Cubao. She was using an LBC card. She says the remittance she receives through the LBC ATM Card comes from the US. It works for her. Hope it works someday for Mirriam too.

  • FragileHearT

    I guess ur mom has to follow it up with LBC in the US for ur PIN. I have been using my LBC ATM for the past 10 yrs.So, far having the bilis padala is convenient for me. =)

  • sal

    hi, I have an LBC ATM card but I forgot my pin since I havent use it for about 4 years. My Tita who gave me this ATM card passed away 2 years ago. Is there any other way I could withdraw the remaining balance of my account? I appreciate your help.

  • http://technobiography.edongskey.com ka edong

    Best to ask LBC directly. http://www.lbcbank.com.ph/
    Goodluck!

  • Pinky

    sal,
    you can call LBC ATM, they will ask some info who is the sender and to whom…. and give your 6 digit card number for verification. you can coordinate sa person na nagopen ng ATM for you para matanong niya kung ano ang PIN number mo. Sayang naman kasi ang balance mo sa bank kung hindi mo makukuha. madali lang yun,,, promise Highly recommended do ang sistemang ito.

  • irene

  • jeremias loresca

  • http://eofw.edongskey.com ka edong

    jeremias,

    pls contact LBC bank directly:

    For inquires, please visit your nearest LBC Bank branches or call (02) 899-86-86 within Metro Manila and 1-800-1-888-86-86 toll free hotline from outside Metro Manila.

  • Addie

    Im using an LBC Debit card applied from USA by my Brother sent to me here in Manila. For just a matter of minute I can withdraw the money he sent thru megalink, expressnet and bancnet or can be used as cash when paying items bought at any stores that allows ATM. so far i never had a problem with it…its so convenient.

    I have a question now: How can somebody in Australia made a deposit to my LBC Account via his VISA Card using internet fund transfer?

  • http://eofw.edongskey.com ka edong

    Hi addie,

    Thanks for feedback.
    That’s a great question/idea you have there!
    And I don’t think there’s currently a solution the way you described it.
    But I like how you’re thinking of solutions (australia to phils via Visa + LBC) … I’m sure there’ll be some solutions soon …

  • http://eofw.edongskey.com ka edong

    sorry to hear that, jeff. Sana ma-kuha mo na ang reimbursement mo.

  • jedd

  • amber

    Hi! my aunt sent me door to door money transfer here in the Philippines from Maryland USA through online. But, I don’t know if she sent it to my new address because I just moved in my new apartmet. what do you think I should do? and is it really true that it is a one day processing?

  • http://www.eofw.net ka edong

    my two centavos:

    You’re aunt should have a tracking number or reference number, given to her when she sent the money.
    Use this number to clarify your situation with LBC. Or your aunt may do the clarification, request for redirection to your new address.

    dapat tangalin as teller yung mga inefficient para maganda ang takbo ng padala sa LBC, may mga suplado na akala mo sila ang may ari ng pera na pinadadala, listen to need of the shipper.
    much better go to a known philippine banks remittance center, mas mura pa

I NEEDED THE MONEY ASAP THATS WHY WE USED THIS ” BILIS PADALA” KUNO… AND EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ANSWERING THE PHONE WERE NOT EVEN APOLOGETIC TO THE SITUATION THEY WERE SARCASTIC AND THEY DONT HAVE OWNERSHIP .. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!!

  • Gina H. Mallari

    Bakit laging may nadedebit sa atm bilis especially kapag di winidraw lahat ang padala. The next time na wiwidruhin na ng recipient di makalabaslabas ang pera. Kapag kailangan kailangan ng tao ang pera sa pilipinas di nya maavail ito. Kapag nag inquire naman sa pinanggalingan na LBC abroad di maviewview daw ang statement window. Bakit ganun. Ang pera kailangan kailangan ng recipient laluna pasukan. Wala rin bangko ang LBC sa Bacolod. Paano kaya yan. Tatlong araw na ang nakalipas since 23 May 2008 hanggang ngayon 26 May 2008. Hindi daw macheck ng LBC dito sa Brunei dahil hindi daw maview ang statement. Bakit? Kailan sya maview.

  • http://technobiography.edongskey.com ka edong

    @Gina,
    Sorry to hear that po. Sana po ma-solusyunan na ng lbc ang inyong concern.

    Subukan niyo pong tawagan ang LBC: (02) 899-86-86 within Metro Manila and 1-800-1-888-86-86 toll free hotline from outside Metro Manila.

    Hi jhosa,
    I don’t have that kind of information.
    Suggest: Your sister can ask her Filipino friends in Korea kung aling remittance service and pinaka-maganda para sa kanila.

    I know that there exists software program and online interfaces to search for backlinks. I don’t need to learn about particular backlink search tools. But I *do* wish to know how they work. Do these websites use the regular serps? And if that’s the case, how? Otherwise, do they crawl the web themselves?
