Balikbayan Store, the premier online platform for global Filipinos, has proudly been nominated for two major accolades at the Middle East Startup Awards & Global Startup Awards: ‘Startup of the Year 2023’ and ‘Founder of the Year 2023’.

Serving as a lifeline for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Dubai, the store allows users to seamlessly send pasalubong – gifts and parcels – to their families back in the Philippines.

Balikbayan Store stands out with its consumer-friendly payment plans. Customers can avail of an installment basis for a range of products, from groceries, home furniture, travel and tour services, to personal devices such as laptops and mobile phones. Through partnerships with Tabby and Tamara, the platform offers zero-interest installment options spread across several months.

For many Filipinos in the Middle East, the online store isn’t just a shopping platform but a bridge to their loved ones back home. Their dedication to serving the Filipino community is evident in their recent accolades.

Mrs. Michelle Q. Guinto, the CEO and founder of Balikbayan Store, expressed her gratitude: “Being nominated for these prestigious awards is a testament to our team’s hard work and the trust our Kabayan community places in us.”

“A significant part of our vision has always been to help Philippine traders leverage the vast overseas Filipino Market, and through our payment technology integration, we’ve been able to offer flexible payment terms that benefit both our customers and our partner traders,” she added.

“We are honored and humbled by this recognition. It’s not just for our company, but for every OFW who seeks to connect with their family back home and for the traders we support in the Philippines. Maraming salamat, mga Kabayan! We promise to continue serving you with utmost dedication,” she further added.
