Local Funds Transfer - Philippines (BDO)

Active Member
Erica Joy B Member Since: Nov 11, 2015

Hello!

 

I did LFT to a BDO account, the only email confirmation I got was that I requested a payment from Upwork to my local bank. I just want to ask, should I be expecting another email as confirmation when to get the funds or it was successful or not? This is the first time that I'd be transferring to BDO and I do not remember if I had to wait for another email before. Last time I had a contract through Upwork was back in 2015.

 

I'm hoping to hear your thoughts about this. Thank you so much

 

 

Sincerely,

Erica

Hi Erica!

 

 

You should be getting another email from Upwork regarding your request being successfully processed. The email would contain the actual amount (in Php) that should be transferred to your account in about 1-2 days. 

 

When you receive the notice for your withdrawal request's successful processing, you can expect the funds to be available the next day, usually during the late afternoon or evening. BDO or Upwork will not notify you if the funds are already available, though, so you need to check manually.

 

LFTs are affected by Philippine holidays and US holidays, so you can expect delays in fund transfers whenever there are national or federal holidays. 

 

Hope this helps!

 

 

 

Sarah

Hi I transferred my funds to may local Bank last april 26 but up until now it's not reflecting on my bank. I also went to my bank to ask why is it not reflecting but they don't have any answers to it as well. I used BDO Kabayan.

Hi Paolo, 

 

We checked your account and can see that the transaction was successful on our end. As communicated through your support ticket today, our payment partner will only be able to trace this transaction after 8-business days, which is on 24-May. We can also see that you have been assisted through our support channels.

We would recommend that you keep all communications through one channel, in this case, through the support ticket so that the team can assist you more efficiently. Just the same, I will go ahead and follow up your ticket with the team so that they can get back to you. Thank you!

Hi Guys, 

can someone suggest which bank and type of account to be used for direct transfer to local banks?
I'm just using my BPI payroll account (which is a savings account btw). Im not sure if it will work though.

 

Need response. ASAP.

 

Thanks.

 Any payroll account that is connected to an employer must be converted to a REGULAR savings account if the employment ties have been severed already.  The last time I checked, BPI has  Php 3,000.00 as the maintaining balance for payroll accounts that have been converted to a regular savings account.

Hi Sarah. For me I use either BDO or BPI.   Both banks has agreement with Upwork to charge no fees for all transfers.
