VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--hyperWALLET Systems Inc., a leading
provider of global payment solutions, today announced the launch of hyperREMIT (www.hyperremit.com), a
revolutionary new and low-cost SMS international remittance service from Canada to the Philippines. hyperREMIT
enables Canadians to quickly send funds to recipients in the Philippines using a variety of secure remittance options,
starting from just $6.00 CAD per transfer.

Through hyperREMIT, Canadians can transfer funds via bank deposit, cash pickup and door-to-door delivery, or
via Smart Money transfers and prepaid airtime top-ups (coming fall 2010). Transfers can be quickly initiated over
the phone or through SMS text messaging, and funds are typically available to Philippine recipients within 1 business
day. With the upcoming Smart Money transfer option, remittances can be sent to any Smart subscriber’s mobile
phone and accompanying reloadable Smart Money MasterCard cash card, providing them with quick and
convenient access to their funds.

“Filipino Canadians rely on text messaging to stay in touch with loved ones. Now they can use the same mechanism
to remit funds back home,” states Lisa Shields, President & CEO of hyperWALLET Systems Inc. “Through
hyperREMIT, we are introducing a new paperless and agentless model for the remittance industry -- a model that
strengthens community relationships, rewards loyalty, and dramatically lowers the cost for senders.” 

Canadian senders can sign up for hyperREMIT at www.hyperremit.com. There, they can fund their hyperREMIT
account via pre-authorized debit or bill payment, add or manage Philippine recipients’ account details, or review
remittance transaction details at any time. Using hyperREMIT’s mobile remittance service, senders can easily
conduct ongoing Philippine money transfers by telephone or SMS text messaging, enabling quick and convenient
remittances from the comfort of their own home or while on the go.
