  1. Thank you for this informative article. Just sent money from
    Bdo online to palawan. Is this real-time? Can the receiver already claim? We already have a reference number.

    1. The guard in Palawan will give you a paper to fill-up in. You just need the reference number, the name of receiver and sender and an ID

  2. hello po,
    ask lng po. nag send kasi ako using gcash to express pay, kaso d ma claim nang reciever ko.. hindi kasi dw mag cash out ang palawan using gcash.
    pa help naman po. paano po yon?

    1. May Gcash na po ba yung receiver nyo? If meron na pwede mag-cash-out sa Palawan Pawnshop or any over the counter services like Bayad Center, SM, Robisons, etc.

  3. How to track Palawan Pera Padala online? I am always led to Palawan Website but no tracking page. Thank you!

  4. Hi, i am not sure if you mentioned about types of IDs which will be needed upon claiming of money. Are there specific IDs required by Palawan Pawnshop / Express from the recipient? If so, may i ask for the list of IDs that is acceptable? What alternatives can you suggest in case the recipient does not have the required ID? Will they accept supporting documents in lieu of the primary requirements?

    1. **PLEASE DISREGARD THE 1ST COMMENT DUE TO SOME CORRECTIONS**

    2. The usual Valid IDs po (Passport, License, Government IDs) … pwede rin Company, School, Barangay Clearance, NBI, Police, or Barangay Certificate.

  5. Hello po, what if po may babayaran ako thru GCash only pero po wala akong GCash pano po un?

  6. I send money to palawan using gcash but the reciever are not gcash user.. Still she can claim the money to Palawan? Please answer

    1. There’s no feature in Gcash that lets you send money through Palawan directly. You need to send money from your cash to your receiver’s Gcash and then the receiver can cash out.

  7. Hi! I tried sending to Palawan Express using my BDO mobile app. Unfortunately, the transfer is ONLY supported in Palawan Pawnshop (not Palawan Express) outlets. It might be worthwhile to include this detail esp important now since the ECQ limits travel.

    1. Hello po, as per article po, there’s a reminder that says “you can only claim it at Palawan Express in Palawan Pawnshops.” I’ll just transfer it to the top so that it won’t confuse people. Thank you po.

    2. Good afternoon. How many days after po ma credit back sa BDO acct if unclaimed ang money sa Palawan? Thank you

  8. May option kaya na pwede hingin ung gcash account ng palawan tapos yun ang sesendan from gcash? Pumapayag kaya ung Palawan ng ganito?

    1. Kailangan po ng G-Cash to cash out from Gcash. But if wala, you may need to go out to Palawan Pawnshop/Express to send money.

      1. Papaano po ba ma i claim ang pera ko mula sa number ko nakalgay transfer to palawan pero my control number na po ako kaya lng po 0balance nalkalagay po

  9. Hi Kach – thank you for this post. Really helpful!
    Just want you to know that you can’t pick-up the money at Palawan Express, but at Palawan Pawnshop instead. 🙂

        1. If na-send mo na po yun at siya nakalagay sa Receiver mo dapat sya din ang kukuha. Pero, you can also send money again to another receiver. If di na claim yung padala mo, they will credit it back to you.

      1. Palawan Pawnshop has Palawan Express Servies. There are also Palawan Express Authorized Agents that do not have functions like receiving money from BDO, etc.

        1. Hi. Unionbank card po yong gamit ko. 7 hours na po mula nung nagpadala ako til now wala pang transaction code na bibibigay. Mga ilang oras pa po kaya yon?

          1. Is this Unionbank direct to Palawan? Usually, it will be sent within the day. Please try checking “send money to remittance center,” then go to your transaction history if for “pick-up na say.”

  10. How days do I need to wait to get my money? I can’t get my money because it says that I need to wait for 48 to 72 hours.
