The BPI Express Mobile app, the most downloaded finance app in the country, becomes even more accessible, as the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) today launches free access to the widely used app to Globe Telecom’s over 38 million prepaid, postpaid and TM customers.
From April 30 to August 31, 2014, Globe subscribers will enjoy having no data charges whenever they log on and transact using the BPI Express Mobile app.
“BPI has always been at the forefront of introducing new channels for our clients to access their accounts conveniently. The BPI Express Mobile app, our latest innovation, is doing very well. Since its re-launch in June last year, it has consistently been the number one downloaded finance app in the country,” says SVP Manuel C. Tagaza, Electronic Channels Group Head.
“In line with the Bank’s new corporate slogan, ‘Make the Best Happen,’ we not only want to offer the best mobile banking channel in the country; we also want to make mobile banking even more accessible by providing free access to all Globe and TM subscribers–no service fee to transact, no data charges to access. This is definitely another milestone for us.”

With the free access to the BPI Express Mobile app, banking has become easier, more convenient, and definitely more affordable.”
