I can’t wait to tell you all about this newest remittance service which my family recently started using….. it’s called PurePadala: A product developed by Puregold and GCASH, wherein instead of sending a normal money remittance from abroad, an OFW (sender) will avail of Puregold Purepadala (Electronic GC) for his/her family’s benefit to shop for groceries at any Puregold outlet in the Philippines via POS terminal/Cashier.
Due to increasing shipping costs, security issues plus the long wait we have to endure before our packages arrive, my family simply got fed-up with the usual system and decided to find a better, safer and faster way to send remittance here in Manila.
It all started when I saw this video on my Facebook wall….
I immediately showed this video to my relatives abroad and we did not have 2nd thoughts in trying it out, as our family regularly shops in Puregold anyway. Fortunately, my relative immediately found a PurePadala partner, so sending the remittance was hassle-free and super quick!
And so last week, I received my 1st Puregold PurePadala remittance from my family abroad. Since it’s a new service, I thought it would be best to take photos and blog about my experience in case you wanna try it out too!
It didn’t take too long to receive the confirmation text from Puregold informing me about my remittance sent from abroad. The quick real-time service was pretty impressive! I immediately marched down to my favorite Puregold branch (Ayala Fairview Terraces), and started shopping for items needed in the household.
Here’s the confirmation SMS I received from Puregold informing me about the P5,000 my relatives sent for grocery shopping. I was told that I had to use the full amount when I shop, so I listed down all the items we needed at home and made sure it will all sum up to P5,000.
Placed all the household essentials in our cart…
From breakfast items, meats, fresh produce, rice, down to toiletries & cleaning detergents … we made sure we covered all of our daily needs
With Puregold PurePadala, you are assured that the grocery budget you send will surely be used to buy food and stuff for the house or even to be used as payment for household bills like your electric bills. OFW’s never have to worry anymore on where their hard-earned money will go.
Highly recommend for OFWs!
With Puregold PurePadala, your intended grocery shopping budget will surely be used properly.

No need to pay for expensive shipping fees to send imported canned goods.

Since we went a bit over the sent amount, we just added the needed balance to complete the transaction.
Our total bill was P5,241.46 so we just added additional P241.46. No problemo!
