As of Mar. 16, 2023, Digital Wallet Corporation (DWC) partnered with DBS Bank Ltd. (DBS), known as one of the major Singaporean international banks and financial services, to launch a faster and more secure deposit transaction process for Smiles Mobile Remittance (Smiles) customers in Singapore.
The collaboration involves the integration of DBS’s API (known as Application Programming Interface) into DWC’s system, which allows for the automatic validation of deposit transactions and faster processing times.
One of the highlights of the partnership is that reporting of payment for remittance orders is no longer required as the system, along with DBS, automatically confirms the transactions. This eliminates the need for manual processing and completely reduces the risk of errors.
The partnership guarantees safe and secure transactions as deposits will be automatically matched by the system.
The new procedure is intended for Smiles customers who will use Scan & Pay, while others who prefer to use bank transfers will have their transactions processed through a different but secure verification process. Scan & Pay and Smiles have generated a system where users can simply scan a PayNow QR code during the transaction process.
Digital Wallet Corporation’s alliance with DBS Bank in Singapore is a significant step towards improving the advanced technological aspect of Smiles Mobile Remittance.
“DBS is one of the most trusted banks in the world and provides advanced fintech services,” said Digital Wallet CEO and Founder Eiji Miyakawa. “Together with our state-of-the-art service, Smiles, I am happy to be able to establish a fine daily life infrastructure for global citizens.”
This collaboration anticipates that both businesses can benefit from the partnership and utilize each other’s strengths to provide better services to their customers.
