MANILA - Cebuana Lhuillier on Thursday said it has launched a new service that allows clients to send money using its website and its app as financial transactions shift to digital amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The pawnshop chain operator said clients can send money through its eCebuana app which uses the Bangko Sentral’s Instapay system. 

“Our Remit-From-Home service makes it much easier and safer for our clients to help their loved ones weather this ongoing storm,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, president and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier.

The eCebuana app has more than 350,000 downloads and will be fitted with more features such as online pawn renewal. 

It will also allow users to open micro savings accounts without having to visit the branch, the company said. 

The e-Cebuana app and micro savings are products of Cebuana Lhuillier Rural Bank.
