Published

on

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) continue to expand their Paleng-QR Ph initiative as they roll out the program in South Luzon, piloting in Naga City, in partnership with the country’s leading e-wallet, GCash.

With the launch, vendors, and tricycle drivers in the Naga City People’s Market can now easily transact with their customers and passengers using QR payment.

“Through this partnership, the merchants of the Naga City People’s Market and the rest of the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Naga City are encouraged to display their GCash QR code at their stores with the statement ‘We accept GCash here’. This way, we are empowering our small vendors to adopt cashless transactions in our efforts to boost digitalization in how they do business towards financial inclusion,” said Martha Sazon, chief executive officer of GCash.

In total, there over 500 public market stalls and 535 vendors in the city who can accept GCash transactions. In addition, GCash has also onboarded 411 vendors in the city as GCash Pera Outlet (PO) partners. This feature on the app allows small merchants to earn extra income and grow their businesses by offering customers in the community convenient access to various GCash services such as Cash-in, Cash-out, Pay Bills, and Claim Padala.

To further promote cashless transactions in the market, GCash is also introducing its GTreats promo wherein customers can get a whole bundle of market products for only P30 when they pay with GCash.

“Our small merchants and consumers can now enjoy not only a safe and hassle-free payment experience for their everyday transactions, but also easy access to convenient financial services and products. We look forward to more strategic collaborations with GCash to enable more Filipinos to thrive in the new normal.” Naga City Mayor Nelson S. Legacion said.

Recently, GCash also partnered with the City Government of San Fernando, Pampanga, to enable digital payments and educate its employees and constituents on the features and benefits of using e-wallets such as GCash.

On top of digitalizing public markets across the country, GCash continues to democratize financial services by making them easy to access, easy to afford, and easy to understand, especially for the unbanked and under-served communities amid the new normal, and beyond.

“Women are often referred to as the ‘ilaw ng tahanan’, something that many families rely on.

“We are thrilled to partner with GCash to empower more Filipino women in the freelance economy. This aligns perfectly with GCash’s mission to promote financial inclusion and innovation, and we look forward to working together to unlock the full potential of the gig economy for women in the Philippines,” says Gina Romero, Co-founder of Connected Women.

Filipinos in the US can soon use #GCash with American Numbers

Published

on

Just fresh from its initial rollout in Japan, Australia, and Italy, GCash Overseas is now expanding into the United States allowing the first 1,000 Filipinos there to use the e-wallet even without a Philippine SIM Card.

Filipinos in the US can soon sign up for GCash by using their American mobile numbers and start supporting their families back home by sending money for free (GCash to GCash), paying bills, and buying them prepaid load credits.

“Now that we have activated GCash outside of the Philippines, we are now working towards making it available in more countries. This time, we are adding the US to our list to be able to service over 4 million of our kababayans residing there,” said Martha Sazon, president and CEO of GCash. “With strong support from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), we are able to make significant headway in scaling our services, aligned with our vision of ‘Finance for All’.”

Earlier this month, GCash received the green light from the BSP to start the initial launch of its overseas service which allowed Filipinos in Japan, Australia, and Italy to use GCash using any SIM from those countries. This has made GCash the first and only e-wallet in the Philippines to offer this kind of service overseas.

Filipinos in the US can soon use #GCash with American Numbers

In just a few easy steps, Filipinos in the US and the initial three countries can soon begin using GCash. First, they just need to download the app from Google Play Store for Android, the App Store for iPhone and iPad users, or the Huawei Gallery. Then, users can select their country and input their details. To verify their account, they just need to scan their Philippine passport or other valid IDs and take a selfie. Fully verified users can then cash in via Remitly to start sending money, paying bills, and buying load wherever they are, with just a few taps on the app.

Aside from making GCash services available to more Filipinos worldwide, the leading e-wallet has also been continuously expanding its international payments touchpoints in partnership with global fintech giant, Alipay+. GCash can now be used to pay in select merchants across countries like Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Qatar as well as top European destinations like the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy.

#GCash #Robinsons Retail make Payments Faster and Safer with New Barcode Scanning

Published

on

To help keep Filipinos safe in the new normal, GCash, the Philippines’ no. 1 financial app, and Robinsons Retail, one of the country’s largest omnichannel retailers, now offer safer and faster cashless transactions through barcode scanning.

The payment method is available at all Robinsons Department Stores, Robinsons Supermarkets, Robinson Easymart, Shopwise, The Marketplace, No Brand, and Southstar Drug as well as select Uncle John’s stores (formerly Ministop).

Paying via barcode scanning helps customers not worry about bringing the exact change or inputting the incorrect amount when making cashless transactions. It also enables merchants to manage their cash flow better and minimize errors when accepting payments.

To pay via barcode scanning, the customer just needs to generate a unique barcode from the GCash app. The Robinsons Retail store simply scans it so the shopper can pay for all the items – from groceries to medicine to Korean snacks – safely and quickly.

Thanks to the latest GCash app revamp, creating your personal barcode is a smoother process than ever. On the GCash app, simply tap the QR button on the homescreen to generate QR, pay using the QR code and present it to the cashier for scanning. It’s that simple!

GCash New Barcode Scanning

“Shopping in malls is a big part of Filipino culture. It’s also how we get our essentials and more. And that shouldn’t lead to health problems or health scares. At GCash, we strive to make Filipinos’ everyday lives better, and with this exciting partnership with Robinsons Retail, we look forward to doing just that by offering safe and convenient transactions for Pinoys,” said Martha Sazon, GCash president and CEO.

Under this partnership, GCash aims to roll out the barcode scanning feature in more Robinsons Retail stores across the country.

“At Robinsons Retail, we do our best to make shopping a delightful experience for everyone. That means making it safe, easy, and hassle-free for shoppers whether they’re buying groceries for the week at a Robinsons Supermarket or a quick snack at an Uncle John’s. With GCash, paying for purchases at the check-out counter is easier and safer with just a few taps and a quick scan,” said Stanley Co, Managing Director of Robinsons Retail’s Supermarket Segment.

GCash’s scan-to-pay partnership with Robinsons Retail began in 2017 via in-store QR, which are still offered by all Robinsons Retail brands. Cash-in is also offered by Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Easymart, The Marketplace, Shopwise, and No Brand, Uncle John’s, and Southstar Drug. Cash-out is available at Robinsons Business Center.

For more convenient shopping on a budget, Robinsons Retail also accepts GCredit and GGives, which are both available on the GCash app.  GCredit offers a credit line for up to P30,000 with zero annual fees. All you need is 1 valid ID and be at least 21 years old. GGives is an installment payment option for up to 24 months for purchases of up to P125,000 with an interest as low as 0% depending on your GScore.
