Did you know that you can use ShopeePay to send money to any bank or e-wallet for free?

We already know how easy it is to send money online—all it takes is a few taps on your phone and you’re done. Convenient and ideal, right? Yes, but only if you’re sending money to someone with the same bank account or e-wallet as yours or else you need to pay extra fees. That’s not very practical so we’ve got a solution for you. Did you know that ShopeePay, Shopee’s integrated mobile wallet, actually lets you send money to any bank, e-wallet or Shopee user for free? Yes, no hidden fees because we want to enable all Filipinos to fully enjoy the benefits of sending money online.

It’s inconvenient to create and maintain multiple apps just to avoid additional transaction fees. To minimize the hassle, all you need is ShopeePay, which is part of the Shopee app—simply activate and verify your ShopeePay account. With ShopeePay, enjoy free and instant bank transfers with 40+ banks and e-wallet partners, including the country’s major banks like BDO, Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), Metrobank, Security Bank, UnionBank, and more. With this integrated service, you no longer need to jump from one app to another to make your fund transfers.

Philippine fisherfolk are among the poorest sectors in the Philippines and are among the most vulnerable to natural hazards and extreme weather conditions.

In 2020 alone, three consecutive typhoons devastated Lagonoy Gulf, heavily affecting fifteen municipalities. Whole fishing communities lost not only their homes but also their means of livelihood, their boats.

Ben&Ben captures fearlessness in pursuing romance with 2022 single “Paninindigan Kita”

The song marks another chapter in the band’s career with its incredibly effortless songwriting and anthemic pop sound

Filipino folk-pop collective Ben&Ben marks a new era in music with the release of their 2022 single “Paninindigan Kita.”

“It is also an ode to a lover that might be hesitant to take a step forward in the relationship,” says the nine-piece outfit. “It's a heartfelt song that gives a balance between understanding where the lover is coming from, and a gentle reassurance that the one singing the song is ready and sure, after learning a lot so far about life and love.”
