On June 1st 2020, SingX launched cash pay-outs for Philippines. This means that when sending money to Philippines, you have the choice of sending the credit either to a bank account, or have your receiver collect it in cash from one of the pick-up locations mentioned while creating a transaction.
All cash payments are subject to (i) receivers showing documentary evidence of their identity (ii) providing all details about the money transfer as required by the pay-out partner such as sender’s name and/or receiver’s name, country of origin of remittance, receive amount and/or transaction reference number/PIN code sent to the receiver via SMS and (iii) any other conditions or requirements applicable at the Pay-out Partner location. While these requirements will be provided to you on a best effort basis, it is your receiver’s responsibility to check and fulfil all the requirements of the pay-out partner. Cash money transfers shall be paid to the person that Pay-out partners deem entitled to receive the money after verification of identity often through examination of identification documents. It is your responsibility and your receiver’s responsibility to ensure that you do not divulge the PIN or other details to anyone. It is also your responsibility to ensure that your receiver does not send this PIN to anyone else, and understands the risks of doing so, especially via insecure electronic communication. Neither SingX nor its Pay-out Partners shall be liable for money being picked up by a person other than the intended beneficiary.
