Need cash at the ready? No need to run to the nearest pawnshop while braving the crowds and holiday traffic in this time of COVID-19.
Technology has found a way to ease our short-term financing pains through a free, downloadable app by the country’s first online pawnshop – PawnHero.
PawnHero is the first online pawnshop in the Philippines offering short-term, collateral-based loans since 2015. The pawnshop is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and all pawned items are covered by Pioneer Insurance.
So Why Download this APP? Well, here are the top Five Reasons Why You Should APP, APP AND PAWN AWAY!
1. It’s easy and convenient! The PawnHero Pawnshop app is now available for downloading on Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. Just type and search for “PawnHero.”
With it, you can easily access the full services of a regular pawnshop without actually having to leave your home.
2. It’s easy as 1-2-3! Fill out a loan application form with your basic contact information as well as a description of your item.
Once submitted, you will receive an initial offer and be prompted to book a pick-up or walk-in schedule for a physical appraisal of your item. If you opt for a pick-up, a Pawntrooper rider will come to your location free of charge and transport the item to the PawnHero Appraisal Center in BGC, Taguig for the valuation process. When this is done, a final offer will be made to you via the app and if accepted, you will instantly receive your cash via InstaPay or PESONet. Should you decline the offer, PawnHero also arranges for the return of your item free of charge.
3. A special in-app chat function lets you message the PawnHero loan support team – enabling you to send photos of your items, links and other information digitally for a faster and smoother transaction.
And no matter the length of time it takes to get your valuables physically appraised, transactions take no more than a day to complete. You can also process your renewals and redeem your pawned item via the PawnHero app.
4. Unlike traditional pawnshops, PawnHero accepts more than gold or jewelry.
Their list of pawnable items include designer bags, luxury watches, laptops, cameras, smartphones, gaming consoles, TV sets, soundbars and speakers, and even designer accessories like belts, shoes and sunglasses.
5. It also offers one of the lowest interest rates in the country, going as low as 2.99% per month for loan transactions.
