GLOBE Telecom’s e-cash services provider GCash has inked a deal with Robinsons Department Store to accelerate the rollout of its cashless payment system in the country.
Anthony Thomas, president and chief executive officer of Mynt, which operates GCash, said in a statement the partnership would provide convenience and security through the QR code payment method to both consumers and merchants.
“All transactions using GCash can be viewed through the app, making sure that GCash users can track their shopping payments,” the unit said.
Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Supermarket, Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Warehouse, and G2000 in Robinsons Galleria are the latest addition to the list of merchants embracing the scan-to-pay feature of the GCash App.
The GCash scan-to-pay feature was first introduced in Mercato Central BGC and Ayala Mall, particularly Glorietta, it said.
GCash said the unit will continue its aggressive expansion plans in the coming years and will also seek to target micro entrepreneurs.
In late October, GCash officially launched its QR code at the Glorietta 4 Mall in Makati.
Albert Tinio, GCash president and chief operating officer, earlier said the unit aims to cover all Ayala Malls before the year ends and to have 10 million users in 2018.
