Let me show you how to use PesoNet Bank Transfer through your PSBank account.

Type in the following URL: psbank.com.ph
Click on the Fund Transfer option.
3. Choose your Source Account.
If you have multiple PSBank account, it will be shown here.

For this tutorial, we will select To Unenrolled Other Bank Account.
5. Complete the needed information.

6. Enter the amount that you want to transfer.
On the text box, input the amount that you will be transferring.
7. Select Within one banking day for the schedule of transfer.
You will be shown several options for the schedule of transfer.
Sine this guide is focused on PesoNet, we will choose the Within one banking day option.
Take note that PesoNet has a 50 pesos transaction fee for PSBank and with a daily transfer limit of 200,000 pesos.
Actually this is our first transaction for the day so I’m not sure why it is saying that we have exceeded the transaction limit.
I think they have enabled OTP as default regardless of the number of transaction that you already made possibly for additional security.
9. Enter your Password and the OTP sent to your registered mobile number.
In this window, you will have the option to review the details of the transfer transaction that you will be making.
You can click on the back button if you have any modification that needs to be done.
Since PesoNet is not a real-time transaction, transfer requests submitted before 2:30pm will be submitted to the recipient bank within the day.
If you submit it after 2:30pm, the fund transfer request will be submitted on the next banking day.
The actual crediting of the transaction amount will depend on the processing time of the target bank.
Then click on the Submit Request button.

If everything went well, you will see a transaction acknowledgement note on your screen with the transaction reference number.
