With many Filipinos working abroad for their family's household needs, children's education, and medical expenses among many other reasons, it is important to keep their remittances secure, fast, and simple for both the sender and the receiver.

Traditionally, after a family member abroad receives their salary, they then proceed to a nearby bank or remittance center to send the money to the Philippines. The family member here then does the same – they proceed to the nearest money remittance center or bank and cash out the money. However, this traditional way of sending and receiving remittances has not come without glitches and delays.

Some have to wait for days to receive the money sent from their loved ones abroad. While for some lucky ones and as technology got better, it only takes a matter of hours.
