PayRemit is a payment gateway for OFWs who do not have credit cards. OFWs simply transact online, and then go to selected remittance counters to pay. This service, which is supported by Ventaja International Corp., is available in 26 countries with 55 remittances agents and their 500+ branches. PayRemit will be adding more merchants in coming months – a major airline and an appliance center.
Last May 4, 2016, PayRemit launched four permanent booths – each equipped with a laptop, printer, and hotspot – inside remittance centers. “Filipino brands can use the booths to showcase their products to our kababayans,” said Joana Lim, Ventaja’s marketing director. “We want OFWs to realize how convenient and easy it is to transact online and pay thru remittance. Those applying for OEC will save time and money as they can even print their certificates at the booths for free!”
Gretchen, who has been an OFW in Dubai for 3 years, shared her experience. “It is very convenient and time-saving. My OEC is ready to be printed less than 1 minute after paying at a UAE Exchange counter. Amazing! Long queues and waiting are finally over!”
In Dubai, the booths are located at UAE Exchange Rigga Metro, Karama Center, and Satwa Al Bada. In Abu Dhabi, the booth is at UAE Exchange Al Wahda Mall.
PayRemit is the latest product of Ventaja International Corp. Ventaja is no. 1 collection partner for the Philippine government, i.e. SSS, Pag-IBIG, and Philhealth. PayRemit is available at the following exchanges: UAE Exchange, Delma Exchange, Emirated India, Al Ghurair International Exchange, and Progoti Exchange.
