CANADA and TOKYO, JAPAN, July 31, 2023 – Digital Wallet Canada Ltd. (DWCL), a subsidiary of the international mobile fintech company Digital Wallet Group (DWG), is pleased to announce that its mobile money transfer app, Smiles Mobile Remittance (Smiles), has expanded its services to include a new feature, Bills Payment. This opportunity allows Filipinos in Canada to conveniently pay their bills in the Philippines using only a smartphone anywhere and anytime, around the beginning of August 2023.
The new feature offers new direct payment options and a wider variety of bill payment choices via mobile phone, making it more convenient for users. Customers normally need to visit a payment location to pay for a bill physically, but with Bills Payment on the Smiles app, they can save time and money.
With advanced mobile fintech, Smiles Canada’s feature allows customers to pay off or make contributions to government loans, insurances (e.g., SSS and Pag-IBIG Fund), electricity (e.g., Meralco), water (e.g., Maynilad), donations (e.g., Bantay Bata), telco bills (e.g., Globe Telecoms and Smart), real estate and investments (e.g., Filinvest).
Other enhancements to the Smiles app include customers being able to use Scan & Pay to pay off their bills easily from Canada to the Philippines on the Smiles app as well as make automatic deposits, which was achieved by the alliance with DBS.
Smiles Mobile Remittance was launched by Digital Wallet Corporation (DWC) in 2017 and became Japan’s number one service and received Good Design Award in 2021. It’s secured by advanced technology such as artificial intelligence and facial recognition which is applied to its eKYC system introduced to Japan. DWG has been operating global services in the US, Canada, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, EU, Japan, and Singapore.
“We are constantly thinking of ways to help the hardworking Filipinos support their lifestyles and loved ones back home,” said Eiji Miyakawa, founder and Chief Executive Officer of DWG. “I believe the new Bills Payment feature will contribute to establishing a better financial future for Filipinos and is a game-changer. I look forward to seeing how our high-tech knowledge can improve the daily life and future of international citizens.”
