GCash, the mobile wallet of Globe Telecom Inc. has expanded its nationwide footprint as the number of cashless transactions reach an all time-high amid the pandemic.
“Nowadays, cashless is slowly becoming the norm, and increasing our cash-in outlets will help provide not only greater convenience to our users, but will also provide them a means to adapt to the new normal. Providing a wide array of cash-in touchpoints — both online and offline — is all about prioritizing the health and safety of our customers,” Martha Sazon, GCash president and chief executive said.
“While we already have over 33,000 branches nationwide as cash in locations for GCash users, this number is still seen to grow as we find more ways to cater to Filipinos across the archipelago and even outside,” she added.
GCash users may cash-in anytime and anywhere to their GCash wallets through partner grocery stores- Puregold and All Day, as well as retail outlets such as Robinsons Department Stores and Business Centers, SM Retail Outlets, LBC, Lawson, and Shell Select.
