Note: Excerpt from the article “The VAS Difference” published in Technobiography in August 2004.
Smart Padala – “The world’s 1st International Cash remittance through text”. In brief, an OFW goes to a Smart Remittance Partner abroad, sends money, then the recepient gets the money via a SmartMoney cash card.
Me and my friend, Cong in Malaysia, have done this on a small scale. Others have done it too (See YesPinoy.com). Smart’s claim of being first – not true.
But, hey, deploying it with this scale (London, athens, tokyo, Hong Kong, New York, LA and many others) – this is great, helps our OFWs! Hope they give Western Union a run for their money. I couldn’t find the sending charges though. (Call Smart Padala hotline +632-845-7788; *7788 using a Smart Cellphone; 1-800-10-845-7788)
