How can I know if my account is already active? I am also trying to make an online account but the website always say that I entered an invalid data. I even sent an email to Metrobank support but have not received any reply. I applied and got my debit card here in UAE Exchane. Please help. email@example.com
If you apply online in Metrobank direct, there is an information asking for 19 digits of your ATM card and in the card it's only 16 digits. Just add three zeros (000) in the after you typed the 16digits. Or just click the sample
after i fill in the details in signing up online i get this c5e8264840a02ee31a6c9f519886bea3cb2282b675e3bf81ce53713b608fcf97 error in every box. And ask me to fill in again the details but still no go. help!

Hi! I just wanna give my feedback in creating online account. I tried creating mine though I do not have my card with me that time and I kept on getting the error "You may have entered an invalid data". It was difficult for me to think of what data to change/modify as there was NO specific indicator on which info i have entered incorrectly. I was upset that moment and I just stopped applying online.
Just an advice, You may wanna include specific error message so it will be easier for us customers to make our online account. That will be a GREAT HELP! Thank you.

hello does it have to be on my own name for me to pay the bills online? i was trying to pay my electric bill but the account was not on my name and it didn't went successful, can someone please advice me?
Russel, you can still pay even if you're not the account owner of the electric bill. I've paid my electric bills (VECO bills) even if I'm not the account owner of that bill. The bill is owned by someone else and yet I've successfully paid it monthly.
Maybe there're something wrong with the details you've entered. Try to check or review the details of the transaction carefully.

I was told by your officer that I will just enroll online to avail of the online services of your bank. I have attempted to do just that but was unable to get through.

I'm having an issue with regards to my this certain service of Metrobank. Last March, I opened a savings account in Metrobank and the person attending to me asked me if I want to enroll to their online services. Thinking that it's convenient, I agreed and enrolled my newly opened bank account in their online banking services.
It is said in their website that it only takes around three days until they give you your username that you'll be using in logging in to their online services. However, it's already April and I still haven't gotten any confirmation message from them in my email. I'm pretty sure I followed every steps correctly. What went wrong? :(

Hi. I have a salary or payroll account with metrobank from the company that I'm working with right now. I'm planning to open a personal savings account on a different branch and apply for metrobank direct.
Is it possible that once I've already made a personal account and my metrobank direct activates, can I add my SALARY(PAYROLL) account on the metrobank direct (which has my personal account) so I can just transfer my salary directly from payroll to my personal account?
MangBerto, I'm not sure of it. But if you have one personal account activated with online banking, you can enroll other account by yourself by logging-in to your account and click "Manage My account" > Enroll/Unenroll another deposit account, assign a nickname to it, and specify the functionalities available for it. Modify the functionalities available for your enrolled deposit account.

And I tried to register in online banking but it needs Customer ID and Password from the branch. I'm disappointed and I couldn't do anything. I just want to ask if there's another way to register in online banking even if I'm here in Canada. I'm waiting for your reply.

I wish there another way for online registration. I think metrobank have good services. I hope there's a second option. My next vacation might take awhile.
I wish Metrobank would find a way for us customers to be able to register online instead of going to the Branch who would only accept the application for ONLINE BANKING :( . i live in Quezon City and they said I need to go to Makati to fill out a form. The travel itself will eat up much of my time plus . I rarely go to Makati and its really a hassle. Please? Is there any way for our bank to look this up for you customer's convenience? I mean you guys are really nice. I like you're service and you're close to perfect. Let's try to polish it more with this request <_<
menandro, yes, you can apply an online banking service of Metrobank even if you are not in the Philippines but you must personally visit a Metrobank representative office in the foreign country where you currently live and ask for assistance for online banking enrollment.

Hi, is it required that we apply for the online banking in the branch where our atm is issued? Coz in my case, i have a savings account/payslip account issued by my company and i wanted to apply for the online banking so i can constantly check my transactions or to check for my salary. But when i visited a branch they told me that i cannot apply in their branch, but instead they told me i have to go to where my atm is issued which i think is a hassle on my part. Why is it not applying for online banking is not applicable in any branch? I hope you can help me with this issue. Thank you very much.
