LANDBANK clients can now open a savings account online via smartphones, thanks to the bank’s upgraded mobile banking app, which allows instant account creation without the need to visit a branch.

Using the mobile app, clients can open a Landbank Piso Plus basic deposit account, a regular Landbank Visa debit account, and the new GoBayani savings account designed for overseas Filipinos.

The state-run bank said to open an account online, clients need only their smartphones downloaded with the latest version of the Landbank’s mobile banking app, a secure internet connection, and any valid identification card such as a Philippine Passport, Driver’s License, Social Security System, Unified Multipurpose ID, Professional Regulation Commission ID, or PhilSys ID.

“We are dedicated to continue expanding our digital offerings to bring more Filipinos into the financial mainstream. Opening a Landbank account has never been easier, and we hope more customers can get to experience the benefits of our convenient and secure banking services,” said Landbank of the Philippines president and chief executive officer Lynette Ortiz in a statement.

The mobile banking app is a free application that offers seamless and convenient online fund transfers, bill payments, balance inquiries and salary loan services.

Using the mobile banking app, Landbank customers also enjoy free fund transfers to other banks via InstaPay and PesoNet for the first three transactions in a day worth P1,000 and below.
