Bringing services closer to Filipinos overseas

In the second quarter of this year, PLDT Global launched its one-stop gateway, Tindahan ni Bossing (TINBO). Available via tinbo.ph, overseas Filipinos can easily access services for their connectivity and financial needs through Maya. They simply need to sign up for a TINBO number (Smart Virtual Number) that would serve as their virtual Philippine mobile number while outside the country.

A TINBO number enables users to receive calls and texts even without a physical SIM card and allows them to receive their secured One-Time Pin (OTP) for bills payment, e-government services, and other-related transactions. They can also purchase prepaid load for their mobile, Pay TV, and internet needs using the TINBO number. TINBO users can also access mWell subscription plans and services tailored for overseas Filipinos. Wherever they may be in the world, they can consult with doctors online 24/7 via mWell, the Philippines’ fastest growing health app.
