Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

I could be wrong, but one cannot deposit into any sort of a bank account at ServiPag: neither someone else's, nor your own, regardless of the bank. At ServiEstado, you can deposit into any type of a Banco Estado account, someone else's, your own, but not the other banks, only into a Banco Estado acc...

If the battery is with a computer, they are ok with that. But if it is alone, then they will flag it. I send laptop batteries from A...
