What if I've committed an inconsistent signature? Is it possible to change the signature into a new one so it will be more consistent? Please send me an email at here in Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
@ jc ycong I had the same concern last year. My previous employer issued my atm card. What I did was I informed my metrobank branch and the person in-charge for accounts converted account from an employer-based account to a personal account. I suggest you do the same thing.

Just want to ask if it's possible to convert a payroll atm to a personal account? I have a metrobank atm but this was issued when I was still working for a certain company and I already left that company years ago.

hello , i just want to make sure if it is true that my friend opened an atm card account in metrobank and she received her card after she done opening so it means only one day ,you willl receive your card ,thanks
myra he, yes. Give her your ATM account name and account number and find a Metrobank or Metro Remittance Center in Singapore where she would be able to deposit the money. There's a Metro Remittance Center in 304 Orchard Road, Lucky Plaza , #04-93 Singapore. You can contact its phone number at +65 6734 8035.
You forgot to include two important things... Must have proof of billing..Electric bill, PLDT Bill, water bill etc.... and you CANNOT open an account on Sunday. Due to the information here, I just wasted about 3 hours this Saturday. If you are going to put info online, you should make sure it is correct
Jesse Boartfield, it also depends on the Metrobank branch and the type of account you want to open. I had opened a Metrobank account with only 1 valid id - "Driver's License" and in another branch, I had also opened a Metrobank account with Baranggay Certificate and Postal ID as requirements.
My fiance and i are interested in opening an account. What could be the best account type we can get. He is an ofw in KSA. Will it be better to get the ofw e-teller arm or the passbook savings witn atm?

Hello, I'm planning to open an online shop. And my sister have Metrobank Maestro Card. Can it be used as an account for my buyers to transfer payments to. What's the difference between Maestro and Master Card??
cams, yes. As you pay P2,000 for opening a new ATM card, it will be automatically be deposited to your account. It serves as an initial deposit. And you can withdraw it anytime and on any ATM machines you want.
Hi! I just want to know if they charge monthly for accounts with negative balance. I was charged -200 last March and now my mon deposited 5k and I checked my balance it was 4,200 only. It's my savings account
mary grace, your account will remain active until 2 years even if you don't have any banking transactions. After 2 years of no transactions, your account will become dormant and Metrobank will charge dormant fee for that.

Hello Mr. Khen. I've opened a new ATM account. After I filled out the forms and all requirements are submitted, the bank gave me the atm card but it was different from the picture shown above. Only my name is printed on the ATM. It appears like an ink printed and not embossed. I was not given an instruction to claim the atm after one week. Is this the new ATM card. Only the name is printed? Thanks.
pearl, there's something wrong with your question. Metrobank Electronic Teller card has no Master Card logo as you can see in the photos in the above article. And Metrobank Electronic Teller card is an ATM debit card and not a credit card. So you cannot use the Metrobank Electronic Teller card as a credit card.
Hi! i am presently working in Riyadh Saudi Arabia.. Why did I not receive an ATM card when I opened a savings account (I've read in the previous post that ATM is included with Passbook). They only gave me a passbook. Then, the staff said that he cannot record the money to be deposited because there was no machine? then if i want to know the total amount of my savings account, he said that he can contact me through text or just go to him? i am in doubt and sort kind of afraid because it is my first time to open an account and i would like to know about the genuineness of this metrobank branch in telemoney, batha, Riyadh, KSA.. thank you and May God bless you.
mariel jane, you should have a photo-bearing id. Barangay clearance is only supplementary and not sufficient. If you want an ATM as soon as possible, you can open an ATM account with the help of your mother or father.
I'm an OFW opening an ATM card here in Riyad. I want to check the money I have deposited but it is required to personally go to metrobank to fill-out a form for online banking application. What should I do? Thank you.
