Leading mobile wallet GCash has expanded its money remittance service as it partners with PERA HUB, a retail brand of PETNET under Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. The partnership expands the reach of GCash Padala to more than 3,000 remittance centers that can cater to millions of Filipino recipients.
With PERA HUB, GCash users can now send money to recipients who are non-GCash users with fees of as low as P5 for P500. This saves travel time for the sender by simply using their smartphones to send money to their loved ones anytime and anywhere.
To claim the transfer, the recipient simply needs to visit the nearest PERA HUB retail outlet and present a valid ID and the Padala Reference Number they received via SMS.
“At GCash, our core mission is financial inclusion. Our partnership with remittance outlets is not merely for expanding our business but more importantly, to help our users connect to their loved ones and be able to support their family wherever they are in the country,” GCash President & CEO Martha Sazon said.
This partnership further cements the position of GCash Padala as the widest remittance network in the Philippines with over 130,000+ doors through more than 73,000 partner merchants nationwide, including thousands of sari-sari store “Pera Outlets”, retail giants like SM and PureGold, and remittance leaders such as Cebuana Lhuillier, Tambunting, Panalo Express, True Money, Express Pay, and PERA HUB.
“It has always been our priority to ensure convenience and accessibility of our remittance services, especially in different provinces nationwide. Through our partnership with GCash, we are able to help Filipinos send money to their loved ones more easily in over 3,000 locations nationwide,” said PETNET President & CEO Ian Ocampo
“With this partnership, we are able to continue our commitment to make sure that Filipinos all over the country have access to convenient, secure, and affordable remittance and cash services in our counters nationwide,” said PETNET Network Operations Head Arnold Dellosa.
