Want an easy way to receive money from your relatives abroad? How about a way so there’s no need for you to go to a remittance office to line up and fill up forms each time you want to receive money?
UnionBank introduced this payment/remittance service called the Visa Money Transfer Fast Funds which allows immediate direct crediting to any of their Visa Debit cards. Keyword here is “immediate” and “direct” folks. No need to wait a day like bank or online transfers. No need to show up on money transfer operators just to get your money. Money will be immediately credited straight to your debit card.
All your relative abroad needs to do is visit Visa’s designated partner which in the meantime, is only UAE Exchange. Send the money to your UnionBank Visa Debit Card: EON, E-Wallet and ePaycard, and just wait for the funds in a few minutes.
If you have a mobile number registered to your card, you will receive an SMS once funds arrive. Or you can check through UnionBank’s internet banking facility, or via ATM.
The Visa Money Transfer from UnionBank is a new remittance service from them with more partners coming soon aside from UAE Exchange. As a treat to OFWs and their families here, every remittance through this service from UAE Exchange, UnionBank will add an additional Php500 cash credits. This promo will end on January 31, 2012.
