CANADA, SINGAPORE and JAPAN, August 21, 2023 – From Aug 21, 2023, at 3:00 p.m., the international mobile fintech company Digital Wallet Group (DWG), is happy to announce that its mobile money transfer app known to be the number one remittance service in Japan, Smiles Mobile Remittance (Smiles), has officially launched its Bills Payment feature in all operating countries. This innovative feature is set to empower Filipinos residing in Japan, Singapore and Canada, offering them the convenience of settling their bills in the Philippines using only their smartphones at any time. This strategic move is aligned with Smiles’ tagline, “Pay with Smiles”, expressing the peace and convenience the feature brings to the lives of its hardworking customers.
Bills Payment 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 the feature on the Smiles app, they can save time and money.
With advanced mobile fintech, Bills Payment 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).
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.
“Our tagline, ‘Pay with Smiles,’ embodies our mission to bring a peaceful experience especially when it comes to financing your future,” said Eiji Miyakawa, founder and Chief Executive Officer of DWG. “We look forward to seeing our customers benefit from this high-tech feature on the Smiles app worldwide.”
