4. Pay FPS merchants (app-to-app/web-to-app)

FPS merchant payments (app-to-app & web-to-app) enable you to make FPS payments from your BEA account through a merchant’s app or mobile website. When using a merchant app/mobile website which supports FPS Merchant Payment (app-to-app/web-to-app), you can simply follow the in-app/on-site instructions, choose “FPS” as your payment method, and select the BEA App when prompted. The BEA App will then open, allowing you to log in to your Cyberbanking account, verify the transaction details, and confirm the payment.
