Cebu is getting ready for a cashless payment system with GCash. Expanding its reach to more than 50 stores at the Ayala Center Cebu, shoppers may use their GCash App scan-to-pay feature for their purchases. As a part of its goal to encourage and fully implement an inclusive cashless payment system, GCash, a mobile wallet service from Globe Telecom, has expanded its availability to Cebu and boosted its usage starting with the Ayala Center Cebu.
GCash allows shoppers to pay purchases to Ayala Center Cebu stores
Around 100 stores are expected to embrace cashless transactions before the year ends. This cashless payment option permits shoppers to conduct transactions easier and faster, giving them the capability to shop and dine with only the GCash App on hand while they use their smartphones.
Some of the noted establishments at Ayala Center Cebu that are now accepting GCash include Abaca Baking Company, Bo’s Coffee, Casa Verde, Chika-an, Rose Pharmacy, among others.
“Our expansion in Cebu allows us to reach more customers and offer the GCash payment option nationwide. We’ve started with some of the Ayala Malls in Manila and we are proud to finally be able to serve our customers in Cebu,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu. “This is one of the biggest steps we are undertaking – to be able to quickly expand to major cities around the Philippines.
GCash is being operated by Mynt, a Fintech company owned by Globe Telecom, Ant Financial, and Ayala Corporation.
Scan-To-Pay Launch in Cebu
Joining the launch are some of Ayala Center Cebu’s important tenants such as Charlie Bettencourt, Chief Executive Office of Rose Pharmacy as well as Globe Telecom’s top executives led by Ernest Cu together with Albert de Larrazabal, Chief Commercial Officer; Bernie Llamzon, Head of Channel Management; and Quark Henares, Head of Globe Studios.
“It is high time that our customers ay Ayala Center Cebu experience the convenience of cashless transactions and offer scan-to-pay with GCash,” said Bong Dy, General Manager of Ayala Center in Cebu. “This way, more people will have hassle-free options in making transactions as they shop or dine at the mall.”
Aside from Ayala Center Cebu, customers can now use GCash at any Ayala Malls nationwide. Buying tickets to watch movies on the big screen will be easier and faster as Ayala Cinemas also accept GCash scan-to-pay as a form of payment. As a reward for their continuing loyalty, users will also get up to 20 percent in cash back from participating merchants and brands.
Here is the list of merchants that accept GCash at Ayala Center Cebu:
