China Bank launches online account opening mobile app

Thursday, May 26, 2022

Saving for financial goals starts with a few mobile phone clicks with China Bank START.

China Bank START is a mobile phone app that makes it convenient, easy, and affordable for non-China Bank customers to open a new China Bank account. Anytime, anywhere—even if abroad, as long as there is internet connection—one can conveniently open a new account without having to visit a China Bank branch. It is so easy as all it takes is one valid ID and a selfie. What’s more, it is very affordable as there is no initial deposit required.

“Our aim is to make banking more inclusive and convenient with robust digital solutions. China Bank START enables Filipinos wherever they are in the world, particularly those who don’t have a China Bank account yet, to easily and securely open an account using a mobile phone,” said China Bank Chief Digital Officer Manuel C. Tagaza. “We removed the barriers to account opening to encourage more Filipinos to start banking with China Bank and securing their financial future.”
Filipinos 18 years old and above, without an existing China Bank account but with an active mobile number and e-mail address and a permanent Philippine address, can open a China Bank ATM Peso Savings Account or a China Bank Overseas Kababayan Savings Account (for OFWs and OFW beneficiaries) using the app.

Accounts opened via China Bank START can be used to transfer and receive funds, reload (mobile, game, or toll credits), pay bills, and more via China Bank Mobile App.

China Bank START is designed with the latest identity verification and security technologies. It is available for free download on the App Store and Play Store. Click here for more information.
