How to apply for BDO ATM Card?
Let's get quick and easy. These are the steps on how to apply for Banco de Oro or BDO ATM Card, specifically the BDO ATM Debit Card.

Step 1

Prepare and bring the needed requirements:

a.) At least two (2) valid id's (original copies and photocopies):

     > school ID

BDO may require you to present other valid id's to verify your identity. So don't forget to bring other ID's if necessary.

Step 2

Go to a nearest or to your chosen BDO branch and tell a bank officer in the New Account section that you want to open a BDO ATM Debit Card. Prepare the requirements. A bank officer will give you some forms/documents to fill out.

Step 3

After filling-out the forms, give P2,000 initial deposit and receive the deposit slip. The bank officer will tell you to come back after a week.

Maintaining Balance

BDO offers many types of accounts with ATM. Each has different required maintaining balance:
  • ATM Card with Passbook (Peso Passbook Savings Account): P5,000
  • ATM Card without Passbook: P2,000
If you open or apply for ATM card only (without passbook), then you are required to maintain at least P2,000 or else you will be charged a fee if you fall below the maintaining balance.

Falling Below Maintaining Balance Penalty

BDO charges P300 (per month) if your atm account falls below the required maintaining balance.

  • You can withdraw cash through any BDO, MegaLink, Expressnet, BancNet ATMs in the Philippines and through Visa/Plus, MasterCard/Cirrus ATMs worldwide.

Hi I want to earn online What ATM Card should I choose Im beginner so I don't know

kristina, you should get a Unionbank EON Card. You can use this card to receive money from Paypal. Online employers usually used Paypal as their payment option for online employees (online staff). You can also use Unionbank EON card to pay for products/services online.

Hi. I withdrew all of my money on my atm account because of an emergency. I checked my account through online banking and it stated there that my account is inactive. Do I need to apply for a new one? Or I just need to pay for the charges and deposit a minimum amount to reactivate my atm account.
