    hi, i add money from my bpi account to my paymaya account but the money did not reflect on my paymaya account

      Hi. I suggest you double check the details just in case. If it isn’t credited within 24 hours, call BPI and have them check it.

    My friend sent me the money from paymaya (instapay) to my bdo account around 2am but havent receive the money til now what should I do?

    • Bryan Rilloraza Reply

      The money will eventually revert back to the originating PayMaya account. If not, the sender should coordinate with BDO and PayMaya to determine if either is at fault.

      I sent money from my paymaya account (instapay) to my bpi account but i haven’t received the money until now what should i do?

      • Bryan Rilloraza Reply

        Contact both PayMaya and BPI so you can determine which is at fault, and so they can act on it ASAP. The money is usually credited back for failed transactions, but sometimes not immediately.

      • I thought bank transfer from paymaya to bank via instapay is real time. Why I haven’t received my money in the bank yet its been 2hours now. Thank you

        • Bryan Rilloraza Reply

          Its supposed to be in real time. Check with your bank of account and PayMaya to be sure that there are no issues with either of them.

    How can i transfer to a bank account of a cooperarive institution via paymaya? The format for tranferring required only a first name and last name…

  4. All the articles just say you can now do bank transfers but have any of you actually tried???? Are you aware of this alphanumeric account number requirement of pay maya?? When account numbers are mostly just numbers

    • Bryan Reply

      Yes I have. Account numbers are numeric, not alphanumeric. You would need the account number of the recipient to send money via InstaPay.
