Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 22, 2017
Paystar, Inc with its joint venture in the MENA region Translink Global Processing G.P.M.E., is announcing we have successfully added Philippines National Bank (PNB) to our network of beneficiary financial institutions in March of 2016 with a full production test for six (6) months and now in live production for all beneficiaries in the Philippines. Paystar has connected our service directly to the PNB Agent Remittance System (ARS) for real-time electronic enrollment of beneficiaries and remittance transfers.
PNB is issuing the Global Filipino Money Card (GFMC) to Paystar’s Enrolled Beneficiaries through the PNB Branch Network for instant low-cost transfers at just 85 pesos per transaction. A remitter can initiate a funds transfer to a registered GFMC account and funds are available for use by the beneficiary in seconds.
Joel Talosig, Head - Middle East Region for PNB (and previously AVP in charge of ARS development) said, “Paystar is the first remittance company to successfully use our ARS system for instant electronic beneficiary enrollments and remittance transfers. After the initial development period and working out consumer acceptance of the Global Filipino Money Card, Paystar and PNB have built a secure and instant end-to-end electronic remittance system.”
Tim Wood, President of Operations for Paystar said, “We have been really happy with PNBs staff and ability to instantly deliver funds to beneficiary accounts in the Philippines. We are seeing secure transfers between remitter and beneficiary completed in just seconds. Remitters initiate a transaction via an SMS from their registered mobile device, enter a secure code to authorize the transaction and beneficiaries in the Philippines instantly receive an SMS indicating funds have been added to their account. It’s truly a seamless system. We look forward to expanding our relationship with PNB in the future.”
