Second Step: Mark the checkbox displaying “I have reviewed the payment transaction above. I have read and accepted the Terms and Conditions.” Then, click on the Credit Card Button and you should be directed to Peso Pay Payment Service.
Third Step: Choose VISA or MasterCard depending on what type of card you are using. In my end, I’m using BPI ePrepaid MasterCard so I chose the MasterCard Icon.
Fourth Step: Fill in the card information needed: Card Number, Expiry Date (mm/yyyy), Name as shown on card, and Card Verification Number (located at the back of your card).
Fifth Step: Click the Submit button to process the payment. A pop-up summary should display and just click the OK button.

Your bank will send a code (called “One-Time Password“) through a text or email depending on your choice to validate your transaction with PLDT Express Online. Enter the sent code though email or SMS then click the Continue button. (I’m banking with BPI and I’ve chosen to receive an email confirmation code from them every time I have to pay for my PLDT Home DSL Subscription.)
Last Step: After the verification and when the payment transaction is successful, a detailed payment summary will be displayed and you have the option to print it or send it to your email. To receive a copy through email, click the Continue button and enter your email then click the Envelope Icon to send.
