Once you're in front of a BDO ATM, tap "QR Code Transaction" on the screen and allow the machine to scan your QR Code. You can pick if you want a printed receipt or not. Then, wait for the machine to dispense cash.
While the process is secure, "We remind our clients to entrust their Withdrawal QR Codes with others prudently," said Tovi Mendoza, BDO Unibank Senior Vice President and Head of ATM Network & Applied Payment Solutions.
