Cebuana Lhuillier rolls out remit-from-home service
Cebuana Lhuillier on Thursday rolled out its remit from home service, as quarantine measures remain in place amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the company, customers can now access remittance services only through its official website and through the e-Cebuana mobile application through InstaPay.
"This is just one of the ways that Cebuana Lhuillier has adapted to the challenges posed by the pandemic," it said in an emailed statement.
The e-Cebuana app and micro savings are products of Cebuana Lhuillier Rural Bank.
The latest announcement comes in line with the launch of its mobile application e-Cebuana, which allows users to transfer money from their micro savings accounts.
They can remit money to other Cebuna Lhuillier micro savings accounts, or have money picked up at any branch of the company with 20% lower fees.
Users can also opt to transfer money to other banks through the InstaPay electronic fund transfer system.
