eBPS phase 2: Subic activates online payment for port transactions

Stakeholders in Subic can now pay their port dues online through Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority's (SBMA) Electronic Billing and Payment System (eBPS).

eBPS, carried out in partnership with Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP), allows Subic Bay Freeport locators, residents, and seaport users to access, view, and print their online billing statements.

The first phase of eBPS was launched last year to facilitate delivery of monthly statement of accounts (SOA) to locators and residents in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone, and remittance of payment, through LBP's electronic banking services.

The deployment of the e-BPS Phase 2 includes other payment transactions, including seaport charges and US-dollar denominated SBMA fees, and the remittance of payment through other BancNet member banks.

Payments can be made online via an automatic debit arrangement using the person's LBP account or ATM card for a minimum service charge of P25 per transaction for peso-denominated billings and US$0.75 per transaction for dollar-denominated billings.

SBMA, in an advisory to locators and residents, said the project is part of its continuing efforts to improve its services.

To avail of the service, the user should go SBMA's website (www.mysubicbay.com.ph). Click on the SBMA-eBPS logo, and complete the online registration process. (Liza Almonte, PortCalls)
