Cebuana Lhuillier, a micro-financial services provider, strengthens its partnership with Western Union, one of the world’s largest money transfer operators, by making the latter’s services available on the eCebuana app.
Clients can now receive international remittances sent through any of Western Union’s locations abroad directly to their micro-savings account available in the eCebuana app. This new development provides clients with the convenience of receiving money sent by their loved ones and families abroad within the safety of their homes.
“This thrust towards mobility and accessibility remains part of the company’s push towards digital transformation, as Cebuana Lhuillier continues to maintain our stride as a ‘tech-brick’ company and the leader in its industry — both in network reach and through our many tech innovations,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, president and CEO, Cebuana Lhuillier.
Recipients can now opt to receive their remittances through the eCebuana app in just three easy steps:
- eCebuana users simply need to select receive money service
- Choose Western Union; and then provide the MTCN or Reference No.
- After submitting the required information and successfully inputting the OTP provided through SMS, Western Union remittance will automatically be credited to their micro-savings account.
From there, they may choose to cash this in at any Cebuana Lhuillier branch or use the funds for various in-app services, including bills payment, load purchases, direct remittances to other Micro Savings accounts, at a Cebuana Lhuillier branch, or to any other bank account.
