Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company or commonly known as MetroBank has been the recipient of various local and international awards in the banking industry. It belongs to the group of the largest banks in the country and South East Asia.
In this post, I would like to make a detailed step-by-step procedure on how to enroll your savings account to its online banking, MetroBank Direct (MBD). It is the Internet banking facility of MeroBank that provides free access on bank account enrolled to this service through the Internet.
Features of MetroBank Direct Internet Banking
Like other commercial banks, MetroBank has its own online banking service for its customers who want to check and access their bank account in the comfort of their own home or office. MBD is a great tool to manage effectively your account and conveniently do transactions over the Internet.
Basically, almost all banks have the same features in regards with their online banking services and MetroBank is not excluded. Here are some of the advantages that you can get from its web banking amenities.
1. Free Online Statement of Account
Before the only way to get your statement is when the bank sends it to your mailing address. It is not the case anymore these days because you can view and print your statement of account when you log in to your MBD.
You don’t need to wait for days just to get your statement because you can easily print it by accessing it to your web banking. Even during emergency situations when you need the statement, there will be no waiting time. Simply log in to your online banking account and then look for the statement and print it.
2. Log in History
One of the safety features of this Internet banking facility is the history of logging in and out. In this way, you will easily know whether someone is accessing your account and you’ll also know the last log in you have made.
Other banks like BPI have no feature like this which I think a nice feature for additional security to the customers. You can also check your other transactions through the history tab located on the right hand side of MetroBank Direct.
3. Transfer Funds to other Enrolled accounts
Transferring and sending money to other accounts is a great benefit of banking through the Internet. In the past, you ought to go to your branch before transferring money by direct deposit to the account where you will send the money.
In this present time, if you want to send money to your enrolled accounts, you can easily do it via MBD. Prior transferring money, you need to enroll first the account you want to send the funds through your branch or accessing your web banking and after that you will see the added accounts which you can use to send the money.
4. Add Money to Your Stocks and Mutual Funds
In case you want to add more money to your stock account or buy additional shares of mutual funds, you can do it through MetroBank Direct without hassle. I buy FAMI mutual funds through MBD when I have sufficient money in my account.
It is easy to buy, you only need to register first your account number and after that buy mutual funds as much as you want. You can also use MBD to add more money to your stock accounts like CitisecOnline or FirstMetroSec.
5. Pay Bills via the Internet
Going to payment center when paying bills requires time and money to do so. However, if you have MBD, you can pay most of the bills that you might have just in the comfort of your own home. You don’t need to go to MERALCO office or your bank just to pay bills. It is not the case anymore. Thanks to Internet banking!
The common bills that you can pay via MBD are MERALCO, credit cards, water utility bills, tuition fee of several schools and universities, golf membership fees, homeowner’s association and many more. Simply go to the “Pay Bills” section of MBD to know more bills that you can pay.

How to Apply for MetroBank Direct
If you already have a savings account at MetroBank, you can enroll it to MBD by going to your branch and filling out an enrollment form. After processing and approval, you will receive your user name on that day and after several days, the password will be sent to your registered email.
In case you still don’t have a Metrobank account, you can apply for new one and at the same time enroll that to MBD. I think it will be better if you can do it so that you can have Internet access for your bank account and get the great benefits mentioned above.
MetroBank Direct is a great Internet banking service for all clients and customers of MetroBank which you can apply through visiting your branch. It is not difficult to enroll your bank account to MBD so it is very advisable if you can have it together with your savings account.
