One of the features of BDO online banking is you will be able to buy your prepaid cellphone load online via your online BDO account. The whole process is very easy as it will only take 5 steps and you can do it in less than 5 minutes.
You can buy Smart, Globe, Touch Mobile, and Talk N Text prepaid loads any time of the day wherever you are. You can even purchase prepaid loads when you are abroad as long as you have access to your BDO bank online.
The regular load amounts that you can buy are Php40, Php60, Php100, Php250, Php500, and Php1000. From the list of amounts, you can see that the increment value is 20, 40, 150, 250, and 500 pesos, respectively.
The only concern with buying through BDO is you can only buy regular loads. This means that if you plan to subscribe to your Telco’s different call, text, and data promotions. You have to know the promo codes and subscribe to them manually by yourself.
In BPI, you can buy a load immediately. You just need to input your mobile number. However, for BDO, you need to enroll your prepaid mobile number in your account before you will be able to buy a load for it.
In this post, you will know the steps on how to enroll your prepaid mobile number to BDO online. Moreover, you will also know the steps to buy your prepaid load using the same bank.
If this is your first time buying load via BDO. I suggest that you buy the smallest amount first which is Php 40 so when your reload is unsuccessful, the cost of the mistake is minimal. Once you receive the regular load without hassle then increase the load value that you will purchase next time.
