The SM Store is the latest addition in a growing list of merchants which have embraced the GCash App scan to pay feature. This development makes it more convenient for customers to do their shopping, especially this holiday season.  It's safe and convenient, as shoppers can easily pay without the need to bring cash.

Present during the launch at The SM Store at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City were the trailblazers of the innovation, led by Globe's  President and Chief Executive Officer, Ernest Cu.

The GCash scan to pay method is such a breeze to use.  A customer with a smartphone only needs to either download or update to the latest version of the GCash App, create an account, and fund the GCash wallet. 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.

Anthony Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mynt, the financial technology company owned by Globe Telecom, Ant Financial, and Ayala Corp., said that they have already begun the roll-out of the QR code acceptance.

"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.  There's no cost to the machine, but more benefits to the merchants," said Thomas. "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," he added.

With the addition of The SM Store, the use of the GCash scan to pay feature continues to gain support among the top malls and merchants in the country.

Over the next few months GCash will continue to aggressively roll out the use of the scan to pay feature in other locations nationwide.
