Starting on December 1, The SM Store shoppers can now enjoy an easy and cashless transaction when they buy items inside the department store of the SM malls by using the ‘Scan To Pay’ feature of the GCash app from Mynt, the financial technology company owned by Globe Telecom, Ant Financial, and Ayala Corp.
The use of Scan To Pay will elevate the purchasing power of shoppers at The SM Store without the hassle of bringing in cash or worrying if they have enough to pay for their purchases.
This development makes it more convenience for customers to do their shopping, especially this holiday season as shoppers can easily pay for their purchases without the need to bring cash.
A customer only need his or her smartphone with the GCash app downloaded and installed on the device. If you’re new with the app, just simply download it from the Play Store or Apple Store then create an account. For those who already installed the GCash app, you may update the latest version. Next step is to fund your GCash wallet through cash-in centers located across the country. Once done, the customer just has to tap on Scan QR and point the phone’s camera at the item’s QR code to pay. And it’s just that easy!
The SM Store is the latest addition in a growing list of merchants which have embraced the GCash app Scan To Pay feature. Among the early adopters are Mercato Centrale BGC and Ayala Malls, particularly Glorietta.
“We are not installing a device but just a sticker with a QR code. The customer simply scans that sticker so no need for additional machines for transactions and there’s no cost to the machine but more benefits to the merchants. Cash is still convenient but there’s also the issue of security and handling. With GCash Scan To Pay feature, we’re bringing that down to the level where merchants can adapt,” said Anthony Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mynt.
GCash Scan To Pay can also be used in other merchants like Max’s Group of Restaurants, apparel brand Bench, and international brands specialty retailer Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI). Smallee sellers located at celebrity bazaar destination Noel Bazaar also adopted this new cashless payment option.
There will be more GCash Scan To Pay roll out in the future in other locations nationwide. learn more about GCash by visiting www.gcash.com.
