The Supreme Court and Land Bank of the Philippines have partnered to offer aspiring lawyers convenient options to settle their fees for the Bar examinations scheduled on four Sundays of November.
The SC’s Office of the 2020/2021 Bar Examinations Chairperson recently announced 24 institutions have been approved to serve as local testing centers nationwide, and Bar applicants can also pay the application fee through Landbank’s Link.BizPortal as an additional option.
Starting last July 29, applicants may settle their Bar exam fees via the Link.BizPortal facility, while over-the-counter (OTC) payments at any Landbank branch or branch-lite unit nationwide are being accepted since July 15.
The Link.BizPortal is Landbank’s electronic payment facility that allows clients to safely and conveniently pay for products and services online to over 800 enrolled partner-merchants nationwide, anywhere, anytime.
“Landbank has partnered with the Supreme Court to provide alternative payment methods, in line with keeping aspiring lawyers safe and focused during their preparation for the Bar exam. We will continue to partner with more government and private institutions to provide fast and convenient payment services under the new normal,” said Landbank President and Chief Executive Officer Cecilia C. Borromeo.
From January to July, Landbank’s five major electronic channels – Mobile Banking App, weAccess, iAccess, Link.BizPortal, and Electronic Modified Disbursement System (eMDS) – facilitated 73.5 million transactions valued at P1.307 trillion.
These represent increases of 12 percent and 65 percent in volume of transactions and value, respectively, over the same period last year.
The Link.BizPortal facility recorded 2.3 million transactions amounting to P5.57 billion, equivalent to 105 percent and 103 percent increases year-on-year, respectively.
