Streetby Officially Partners with GCashJun. 01, 2020
The new normal is here —undoubtedly, the pandemic altered our lifestyle. Aside from wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, consistent hand washing, and other preventive measures we have succumbed, we are now beginning to understand the importance of cashless transaction. With the number of people anxious about keeping paper bills and how social media feeds us with information about Covid-19 confirmed cases, the clamor of consumers requesting for digital payment increased radically over a relatively short period of time.
With Streetby’s goal to contribute ways on flattening the curve, the timing is absolutely right because aside from Streetby’s existing cashless form of payment like Streetby wallet, credit card, debit card, and Paypal, it officially partners with GCash - a leading platform in digital payment powered by Globe Telecoms Inc. For starters, GCash serves as a virtual wallet. To get a Gcash account, the requirements are simple: download the GCash app, use your existing cellphone number, wait to be verified and you’re in. The app allows you to pay for items and send money at the speed of a text message. It also ensures security for its users as it is licensed and regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). To use GCash as a form of payment on Streetby, consumer will tap the GCash option after confirming an order and as soon as the rider arrives at the location, consumer would have to scan the QR code provided by the rider and a notification will be provided.
“Being a solution provider, this is another way of Streetby to adapt to the current situation. We understand the demand and we listen to our customers. Digital technology is essential in improving our everyday life especially in these trying times. This is also beneficial to our partner merchants as GCash has a strong and growing number of 20M+ users as of 2019. ”, CEO Rhey Ronald Miñoza explains.
This partnership serves as milestone for both Philippine-made apps. This is the first time that GCash partners with a mobile app that caters to grocery, food, and on-demand services. Truly a feat worth celebrating as both companies just opened a new opportunity for Filipinos to enjoy the fruits of innovation and certainly helped in propagating a cashless environment.
*GCash payment on Streetby is applicable on all services except for Parcel, Laundry, Personal Shopper, and Gaisano Cagayan de Oro Grocery
