PLDT’s TINBO ePadala makes sending money to the Philippines from Hong Kong a breeze

PLDT Global Corp., the international arm of the Philippines’ leading telecommunications and digital services provider, has rolled out several initiatives to support Filipinos in Hong Kong.

“As we celebrate Philippine Independence Day, we aim to provide our fellow Filipinos in Hong Kong with the freedom to manage their hard-earned money and send it to their loved ones easily. We strive to empower them and their families by introducing digital solutions that enhance their lives and strengthen their connection back home,” said Albert V. Villa-Real, president and CEO of PLDT Global.

To facilitate seamless financial support for overseas Filipinos in Hong Kong, TINBO (Tindahan ni Bossing) has launched the ePadala service.

Powered by Starpay Corporation (Starpay), TINBO ePadala allows Filipinos abroad to send cash-in vouchers in denominations of P1,000, P3,000, or P5,000 directly to their family’s electronic wallets and bank accounts with minimal transaction fees. This service is particularly valuable during emergencies when immediate financial assistance is required.

PLDT Global’s TINBO platform is an all-inclusive online marketplace that enables Filipinos living abroad to purchase load, pay bills, send food vouchers, e-gifts, healthcare vouchers from mWell, and gaming PINs for their families in the Philippines. TINBO also offers a secure online bill payment system for Philippine utilities and other digital services, including the Smart Virtual Number for use outside the Philippines.

“We are delighted to collaborate with TINBO and PLDT Global, helping us reach more Filipinos worldwide and transition them to secure and convenient digital financial services,” said Ryan Uy, Growth and Marketing Head at Starpay.

Supported by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas-regulated Starpay, ePadala ensures secure transactions, safeguarding funds and personal information with daily and monthly transaction limits to prevent abuse or fraud.
