PERA HUB, one of the country’s foremost consumer financial services providers, launched a more enhanced and inclusive PERA HUB Mobile App with a new PERA HUB Virtual Card feature, which enables users to experience a fast and easy way to do their remittance, cash, and e-commerce transactions online without using any physical cards or having the need to go to a branch.

With more Filipinos choosing digital-based solutions for their remittances and other cash-related services, PERA HUB aims to provide a broader range of channels and options for Filipinos to do their transactions anytime and anywhere.

The PERA HUB Virtual Card serves as the main highlight of the new and improved mobile app. It holds the features of the app such as sending or receiving Western Union domestic and international remittances; Interbank transfers to over 50 banks and e-wallets; Bills Payments with over 250 billers to choose from; Free PERA HUB to PERA HUB fund transfer; Cash-in via ECPay at over 15,000 partner locations nationwide; Cash-out at any of the 186 PERA HUB branches nationwide without additional charges; e-load and game credits; and affordable microinsurance.

The enhanced PERA HUB Mobile App has a user-friendly interface where users can personalize their home dashboard and feature the services they always use and are interested in, so they can easily make transfers and keep track of their payments any time and receive or send money transfers instantly within minutes.

It allows users to perform fast and easy PERA HUB to PERA HUB fund transfers by scanning their recipient’s unique PERA HUB Account QR code, saving contacts, and scheduling transfers for remittance and interbank transfers.

The PERA HUB Virtual Card, powered by Visa, may also be used for Lazada, Shopee, Amazon, and other local and international online shopping platforms. It is available for new and existing users with FREE registration for all via the app or via any of the 186 PERA HUB branches nationwide.

“It has always been our priority to deliver innovative solutions for our customers. With the enhanced mobile app and the new PERA HUB Virtual Card feature, we want to create a digital experience that is inclusive for all so they always have access to convenient remittance and other financial services across different channels,” said PERA HUB President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ian Ocampo.

“There are Virtual Cards available in the market, but a challenger will always find a place, especially when it offers more relevant and customized solutions to address the remittance and other cash-related needs of the community it serves,” said Assistant Vice President for the PERA HUB Mobile App Mennie So.

“As we relaunch the improved PERA HUB Mobile App, we give customers access to a more convenient and free onboarding experience for their accounts without having to visit the branch, so they can do their transactions in the comfort of their homes anytime or anywhere,” she added.

The users can easily register and create their account for free on the Mobile App by filling out their details, providing a photo of any government-issued ID, and a selfie for verification.
