?HOW CAN I MAKE MY ACCOUNT MORE SECURE?
You can make your account more secure by using a unique and strong password that you have never used in any websites before.
Also, consider securing your account with 2 factor authentication. Two Factor Authentication, also known as TFA, two step verification or 2FA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a password and username but also a unique 6 digit numerical code generated by either Google Authenticator, Authy or similar types of authenticator programs. We recommend the use of either Google Authenticator or Authy as another layer of defense against unauthorized use of your account.
?I AM AN EXISTING PNB WEB REMIT CUSTOMER. DO I NEED TO SIGN UP IN THE XCHANGED USA APP?
Yes. To experience having wallet in your mobile device, download and sign up for an account in Xchanged USA App!

?HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ACCOUNT TO GET PROCESSED AFTER SIGNING UP?
After filling out the required fields and after the successful initial level of verification, you can already fund your e-Wallet and send remittance immediately (applicable to debit card and credit card mode of payment)!
?WHAT IS ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND WHERE CAN I SEE IT?
Account Information is the remitter/users complete details. You can update this information if needed. You can see your account information on the right upper side beside logout. You can also check your remitter information on one of the icon that says “Remitter Information” on Dashboard.
?WHAT ARE THE CONVENIENT WAYS TO FUND YOUR ACCOUNT?
Below are the three (3) allowed sources for funding the e-wallet:
a. Electronic Fund Transfer – funds are being transferred from your account from your USA bank account to your Xchanged e-wallet via Automatic Clearing House (ACH). It normally takes 5 to 7 banking days for the amount to be credited to your e-Wallet account for the first time. Subsequent funding will be shorter (3 to 5 banking days). Please take note that you must be the owner of the account to successfully fund the ACH. Creating ACH's from accounts that you do not own or if the account name differs with your name will be rejected by the system and your account will be closed immediately
b. Debit Card – funds are being transferred from your USA issued Debit Card to your Xchanged e-wallet by inputting the required Debit Card details. Please take note that the system will reject Credit Cards when you try to input these into the Debit Card portion so please make sure that you are inputting only Debit Cards into this section. Please make sure that the name on the Debit Card matches your account name in the www.xchangedremit.com system as the system will reject a Debit Card that is different from your account name. Creating Debit Card charges from accounts that you do not own or if the account name differs with your name will be rejected by the system and your account will be closed immediately.
c. Credit Card – funds are transferred from your USA issued Credit Card to his/her Xchanged e-wallet by inputting the required Credit Card details. Once the credit card charge is approved, your account will be funded. Please take note that Credit Card funding is subject to a Convenience Fee of 4% and YOUR issuing bank MAY charge you a CASH ADVANCE fee.
Your bank and/or your credit/debit card issuer may charge you fees for the payments you make for your remittances. Your credit/debit card company may charge you cash advance fees. These fees that your bank and/or credit/debit card issuer charges, if any, are THEIR fees for using their services.
?CAN I WITHDRAW MONEY FROM MY XCHANGED USA EWALLET?
No, money funded to your Xchanged eWallet can only be used to send money.
?HOW MANY BENEFICIARIES CAN I ADD?
You can add up to five (5) beneficiaries.
?WHY DO I NEED TO ENROLL BENEFICIARIES?
Unless your beneficiaries are enrolled into the system, you will not be able to remit or send funds to these beneficiaries. Please ensure that the information that you enter for your Beneficiaries are CORRECT and ACCURATE so that they will be able to pick up the funds in the Philippines.
?WHAT SHOULD MY BENEFICIARY BRING WHEN CLAIMING REMITTANCE THROUGH CASH PAYOUT PARTNERS?
