If you are an OFW working in Africa, do not use Metrobank as your remittance bank.

1. Transfer to metrobank is always delayed and defies 3-working days expectation

2. Their online banking website blocks African ip addresses, such as Nigeria.

3. Cannot transfer fund to family, or pay bills or tuition online.

so what’s the point of offering online banking to OFWs when it is not globally accessible?

What a dis-service. They should put a big sign on their online banking site that says “This service is not available in African countries.”.

Anyways, I moved to BDO for my remittance and online transactions.
