Smiles Mobile Remittance Enables Affordable Money Transfers for Vietnamese in Canada


Canada/Tokyo, Japan, 13 March 2023 Japan-based IT and fintech company Digital Wallet Group (DWG) has launched Smiles Mobile Remittance (Smiles), its popular international money transfer app, in the Vietnamese Canadian market. The app is developed and owned by DWG subsidiary, Digital Wallet Corporation (DWC), and has already been officially launched in Canada for those sending money to the Philippines since Feb. 22, 2022.

Vietnamese Canadians can not only easily and quickly transfer funds to their loved ones in Vietnam but they can also send money with low fees and high rates with Smiles’ “Everyday Great Rate”. 

Smiles has also included its Loyalty Points Program which allows customers to earn points through certain actions with the Smiles app such as registering and remitting. Points can then be used to cover the transaction fee partly or entirely to extend financial support.

“I am really happy for Vietnamese customers in Canada,” says Digital Wallet’s Chief Marketing Officer, Trinh Vo. “Smiles is recognized as the most used and loved in Japan, and now it will bring more happiness and convenience to everyone in Canada.”

Operating for six years, Smiles has become a popular remittance service among the Vietnamese community in Japan with over 50 thousand followers on the Smiles Vietnam Facebook fan page and a 5-star rating from almost a thousand Facebook reviews. 

Major bank partners of Smiles are anticipating the service to help even more Vietnamese in the international community.

Sacombank-SBR Chairman and General Director Mr. Tran Minh Khoa states that “we are more than happy to see Smiles’ success in Japan and the coming expansion to Canada. With the increasingly significant role of inbound remittance to Vietnam from Canada, Sacombank-SBR and Smiles hope to accompany and help more Vietnamese expatriates for and Vietnam’s economy.”

The money transfer service allows customers to do the quick process of remitting solely on their smartphone anywhere they are at any time of the day. Customers can experience convenience, speed and affordability to support their loved ones.
