Prepaid Card Limits
All BPI Prepaid Cards have an accumulated daily and monthly load limit. These limits are the same regardless of the number of prepaid cards a cardholder has.
|Limits*||Maximum Load Amount|
|Daily Load Limit||Php 100,000|
|Monthly Load Limit||Php 500,000|
The limits are in place to prevent the maximum related risks when your BPI Prepaid Card is lost. At the same time, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has mandated that eMoney products such as prepaid cards should have a daily load limit of Php 100,000.00 and monthly load limit of Php 500,000.00.
