  • Hello, pwede po malaman ang ibig sabihin ng “The receiver first name field is required”. Hindi po ako makakapili ng payment method gawa nun.

    • Ibig sabihin, naka blank po yata ang Receiver field. Dapat nyo pong isulat ang inyong name dun or kung sino man na magrereceive ng inyong NBI Clearance.

      • Hi, same experience rin dun sa receivers first name field is required pero wala naman blank field or any fields about sa receiver. Would you know where? Baka na-overlooked ko lang 🙂
