Last updated October 18, 2023

In 2022, Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) saw 180.2 million online banking transactions.[1] Aside from online transactions, the bank also offers pioneering app-based services, such as the country’s first digital investment management account (IMA) opening, digital concierge, and mobile check deposit, just to name a few.[2]

It's clearly a sign that the use of mobile banking apps in the Philippines will continue to rise from here. If you have an RCBC account, here’s how to use RCBC Online Banking.
