GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet solution, reached a new milestone with its existing partnership with Puregold by introducing another industry-first mobile payment solution aimed to ease the transaction and improve the scanning experience of both merchant and customer.
GCash Scan to Pay (STP) via Barcode, is the new barcode scanning payment scheme that is integrated into Puregold’s point of sale (POS) to streamline payment system and facilitate faster transactions.
“Puregold is the first national supermarket chain to accept mobile payments via GCash, and it continues to be a strong partner in our work of building a cashless ecosystem that will lead to a more financially inclusive Philippines,” Mynt President Anthony Thomas said.
The STP via barcode eliminates the merchant’s need for a QR key card or the handset that will receive the GCash reference number as proof of transaction, streamlining the payment system. Customers also no longer need to input the amount due for payment in their GCash app, because it will be automatically deducted from their account.
“This is the first time such barcode scanning payment system will be used in the Philippines, and we are proud to be GCash’s partner merchant for this. This aligns with our vision to be the most customer-oriented hypermart that offers one-stop shopping convenience and the best value to Filipinos,” Puregold President Ferdinand Vincent Co said.
Puregold has 367 stores nationwide accepting GCash’s STP and offering cash in to the app.
“We are constantly looking for ways to make financial transactions easier and more convenient for people. With this STP via barcode system, we are introducing with Puregold, we hope to encourage more Filipinos to go cashless,” Thomas said.
