Metrobank, one of the leading banks in the Philippines, is waiving the fees for InstaPay transfers worth PHP 1,000 and below until September 30, 2023.

It is also a way to showcase the features and benefits of the new Metrobank App, which provides smart, simple, and secure banking services to its clients.
