MANILA - BPI on Thursday reminded consumers to transact early ahead of a 3-day systems upgrade that will leave many of its online services unavailable.

Online banking, mobile app, Bizlink platform, debit and prepaid card services, automated teller machines (ATMs), and cash accept machines (CAMs) will be temporarily unavailable from 10 p.m. on April 5 to 5 a.m. on April 7, the bank earlier said.

Withdrawing funds using a BPI card from other banks' ATMs will not work as well, the bank said. 

Consumers should withdraw cash, pay bills and transfer funds before the weekend, it said.

"Please plan your weekend transactions accordingly," BPI said in an advisory. 


Several branches nationwide will be open on April 6 and 7 (Saturday and Sunday) to assist consumers, the bank said.
