Leading mobile money provider GCash teamed up with the number one online mall Lazada to provide a more convenient way of checking out your shopping cart.
GCash users can now pay directly using their GCash wallet upon checking out. An existing user will just need to select GCash as the payment method, link their GCash-registered mobile number, and tap a button to confirm payment. The enrolled GCash account would then be saved as the primary payment method on future purchases, saving log-in times.
To put money on GCash, a customer can go visit over 16,000 nearby GCash Partner Outlets nationwide, like 7-Eleven, SM Business Centers, Robinsons Business Centers, Puregold, and Villarica Pawnshop branches, and tell the cashier to cash-in to their GCash account. Cashing-in to a GCash account is free. Once funded, customers can now shop and checkout at Lazada.
"Being able to shop online using the GCash App solves two problems, mainly providing access and convenience to consumers to shop online without a credit card, and enabling merchants to expand their consumer base and minimize risk on COD transactions," said Anthony Thomas, Mynt's President and CEO. "This goes back to our journey for financial inclusion. Now, no matter how small or big a Filipino is, he or she can enjoy Lazada goods and services via GCash," he added. Mynt is the operating company behind GCash.
Ray Alimurung, Lazada Philippines's CEO, said: “With Lazada and GCash’s collaboration, customers will have more flexible payment options and enjoy exclusive and exciting promotions. Lazada is the biggest online shopping destination in the Philippines, offering 70 million products and 10,000 brands."
GCash and Lazada are holding multiple promotions when you pay using GCash especially during the biggest online shopping days—11.11 and 12.12—where customers can get as much as 50% discount up to PhP 300. At the same time, customer can enjoy 20% discounts up to PhP 200 on flash sales.
Filipinos using a Globe, Smart, Sun, TM, or Talk & Text SIM can register for a GCash account for free. Customers can download the GCash App—available for free on the App Store and on Google Play.
