We heard you. As the first and only Filipina-founded mobile remittance app, we are raising our 🇵🇭 flag in our name. We are now called TANGGapp with two G's. Our new name reflects our Filipino roots by referring to the Filipino word tanggap, which mean to receive.
TANGGapp also stands for ‘Tap ANd Go Global’, in order to reflect our global reach and the presence of Filipinos around the world.
We are excited to announce our new website URL too! You can now reach us at www.tanggapp.com. Our previous website URL www.tangapp.org will still work in the meantime.
Tara na, TANGGapp today!
The visionary Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) former Governor (2017-2019), Nestor A. Espenilla Jr. believes: “the future of the financial system lies in going digital and using it to achieve financial inclusion. We are too fragmented geographically to reach out using traditional means. Digital technology provides such a chance.” This is also TANGGapp’s vision: to make transactions like money transfer or phone load top-ups from abroad as simple as sending a text message, in a convenient, instant, and safe manner.
With TANGGapp we bring Filipinos closer by connecting OFWs to their loved ones back home in the Philippines, who are unfortunately often financially excluded and an under served population. TANGGapp is for Filipinos by Filipinos and aims to connect remittances to domestic last mile daily e-payments. The habits in the Philippines of transacting mainly in cash are partly due to the lack of effective access to formal financial services. It will only change when simplified digital access to these services is provided. TANGGapp is here to help both Filipinos abroad, and at home, get the best financial digital services.
The benefits of being digital:
