LANDBANK, Supreme Court join hands for easier Bar exam payments

The Supreme Court of the Philippines and Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) have partnered to offer aspiring lawyers convenient options to settle their fees for the upcoming Bar examinations scheduled on all four (4) Sundays of November 2021.

The Supreme Court’s Office of the 2020/2021 Bar Examinations Chairperson recently announced that 24 institutions have been approved to serve as local testing centers nationwide, and that Bar applicants can also pay the Bar application fee online through LANDBANK’s Link.BizPortal as an additional option.

Starting last July 29, 2021, 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 CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo.

From January to July 2021, LANDBANK’s five major electronic channels—Mobile Banking App, weAccess, iAccess, Link.BizPortal, and Electronic Modified Disbursement System (eMDS)—facilitated a total of 73.5 million transactions valued at P1.307 trillion. These represent increases of 12% and 65% in volume of transactions and value, respectively, over the same period last year.

In particular, the Link.BizPortal facility recorded 2.3 million transactions amounting to P5.57 billion, equivalent to 105% and 103% increases year-on-year, respectively.
