Apps for remittance from Taiwan to Philippines

I would like to share some apps that you can use in Taiwan to remit money from Taiwan to your loved ones in Philippines.

1. SET it was launched few months ago and it is powered by Western Union and King’s Town Bank. Though I haven’t tried it yet but there are lots of good feedback about it and it offer free of charge on your first remittance and only NT$99 for succeeding transactions.

2. TVIP just registered recently haven’t tried it as well, it lacks of marketing through social network site so it is less known.

3. EMQ send – I have tried it already it is quite good but the only downside is the QR code that they suppose to send takes quite some time because I have waited for about an hour. They currently have promo until end of August for zero transaction fee and will be NT$200 per transaction after the promo period.

4. EEC – it is well known cargo and remittance center and most of the migrant workers knows it.

5. FEE mobile – newly launched this September but it only have for android platform, service fee is also NT$200 but i haven’t tried it yet.

Conclusion:

Above mentioned apps are easy to use and can remit from convenience store 7-11, family mart, hi-life and ok mart around the neighborhood. From the reviews i have read the most of the migrants trusted EEC due to its popularity amongst the migrants and also SET for the reason it is powered by western union. Most of the apps exchange rate may differ but the highest exchange rate is EMQ send. 

Downgrade and renew my namecheap hosting

Another year have passed and it is time  to renew my webhost, I am using shared hosting of Namecheap for a few year already and it cost me $38.88 every year to renew it. Recently I have noticed that they have changed their webhost package name and price is much lesser than Value 4G package that I have been using and I immediately contacted the support if it is possible to change my current package to their new Stellar package, the thing that I appreciated using Namecheap is fast response of their support and support said that I can directly downgrade my current package to stellar package and all downgrades are prorate, any balance from my existing plan will be carried over to my Namecheap funds that may be used to settle the next generated invoice or pay for any other services with them (I received $1 plus LoL) and paid $24.88 for one year (current 20% off promo for one year subscription)

stellar

I am satisfied using Namecheap as my hosting and domain provider compare to other webhost service that I have used, didn’t have any problem encountered and they can also solve any problem I have escalated. Anyway, I personally would recommend Namecheap.

namecheap-hdRecently I transferred from hostmetro which have hosted my site for 3 years, it’s sad to go but due to my tight budget nowadays I needed to find a much cheaper host but reliable. I heave read a lot of good reviews about namecheap and my domain were also registered with namecheap for 3 years already. So why did I choose Namecheap? The reason why I chose Namecheap is because of their initial charge is affordable which is $9.88 for the 1st year but the downside is their quite pricey renewal price which is $38.88.
