Personal Development, Finance, and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Last year, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Philippine Payments Management, Inc. (PPMI) successfully launched the "Bills Pay PH."
What is Bills Pay PH?
Bills Pay PH is a new interoperable facility that would allow customers to pay their bills for utility, rent, subscription, credit cards, loan amortizations and other periodic or recurring financial obligations. Interoperability means that digital payments can be made between payers and billers even if they maintain accounts with different payment service providers (PSPs). In the Bills Pay PH facility, transactions can be performed either by scanning or uploading the QR Ph (QR Ph is the national QR Code standard in the country) Person-to-Biller (P2B) code, or by manually inputting the payment details for the non-QR mode of payment.
How is it different from current bills pay services of financial institutions?
Prior to the launch of this facility, customers can only pay billers that have an existing arrangement with the same PSP that they maintain an account with. With this facility, a customer can now make payments to a biller even if that biller has no existing arrangement with the customer’s PSP.
This facility also enables seamless user experience with the use of QR Ph codes when paying since customers need not manually type in the payment details.
How can I use Bills Pay PH?
Customers can use this facility through two (2) modes:
Using QR Ph P2B
Using Non-QR mode
*You may notice that, in most cases, the procedure to perform non-QR payments in the new facility may be similar to the traditional way of paying bills via app.
What are the applicable fees for using the Bills Pay Ph facility?
Customers will not be charged any service fees for paying their bills using Bills Pay PH.
Who are offering the service?
Currently, customers can pay using this new facility as long as they maintain an account with the following PSPs:
QR Ph mode
And their billers maintain an account with any of the following PSPs:
The list of participating PSPs is set to expand as more financial institutions are working towards being onboarded into Bills Pay PH in the near future.
