Buying games, tools, or app is much more easier now. Globe has partnered with Google Play and is now the first carrier in the Philippines to rollout app purchase online without using any credit cards. Anybody using an Android or smartphones has an opportunity to purchase an app without the need of a credit card. Simply pay your purchases with your Globe load from your postpaid bill, according to Peter Bithos, Chief Operating Advisor, Globe Telecom, Inc. during the Globe Digital Lifestyle Expo Media Launch held last night, one day before the public opening at the Mega Fashion Hall located at the first level of SM Megamall, Bldg. B.
Bithos presented this digital innovation, actually the first of the three innovations that Globe announced at the expo.
“Last quarter, we focused on your music life and we’ve partnered with Spotify and brought world’s best music service to the Philippines. Six months or so ago, we’ve brought Facebook totally free for millions of Filipinos. We’ve partnered with Viber, Google on Search, and we love approaching our partners on finding ways to bring things and solved problems. And one by one, we are trying to make your life better,” said the rock star COA of Globe.
Bithos mentioned the problems of purchasing app or games online because out of the 100 million Filipinos only 5% of that number have credit cards. To solve this problem, Globe has been working on this for three to four year and successfully partnered with Google for this innovation. “Now, anybody with a smart device can buy anything they want to buy at Google Play,” he added.
Before, payment options at Google Play Store only required credit or debit card. Now, Globe Telecom Billing is enabled on the payment options.
Globe will be rolling out this innovation on Google Play in the next 4-5 days for Globe subscribers.
Also, Globe lets you store, share, and access your files for as low as Php 15/month via Glob Cloud. Read our story here.
