Digital Wallet Singapore Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of the international mobile FinTech company, Digital Wallet Group (DWG), announced that its mobile money transfer app, Smiles Mobile Remittance, has expanded its services to include a new feature, Bills Payment.
The new feature enables Filipinos in Singapore to conveniently pay their bills in the Philippines using only a smartphone anywhere and anytime. It offers new direct payment options and a wider variety of bill payment choices via mobile phone.
Smiles Singapore’s feature allows customers to pay off or make contributions to government loans, insurances, electricity bills, water bills, donations, telco bills, real estate and investments.
“We are constantly thinking of ways to help the hardworking Filipinos support their lifestyles and loved ones back home,” said Eiji Miyakawa, founder and Chief Executive Officer of DWG. “I believe the new Bills Payment feature will contribute to establishing a better financial future for Filipinos and is a game-changer. I look forward to seeing how our high-tech knowledge can improve the daily life and future of international citizens.”
Other enhancements to the Smiles app include customers being able to use Scan & Pay to pay off their bills easily from Singapore to the Philippines on the Smiles app as well as make automatic deposits, which was achieved by the alliance with DBS.
Smiles Mobile Remittance was launched by Digital Wallet Corporation (DWC) in 2017. It is secured by advanced technology such as artificial intelligence and facial recognition which is applied to its eKYC system. DWG has been operating global services in the US, Canada, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, EU, Japan, and Singapore.
