Globe’s scan to pay may also be available in Alipay affiliated countries
With more and more people embracing digital mobile payment services, Mynt, the digital payments arm of Globe Telecom, is looking to expand its partnership with Chinese Alibaba’s Ant Financial Services Group, to expand its reach and customer base.
Globe president and CEO Ernest Cu said its scan to pay technology, GCash, may soon be used in Alipay affiliated countries like India, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.
Last week, Mynt and Ant Financial said they would come up with a new QR code solution, which will allow local merchants to accept payment from both local users using GCash and Chinese visitors using Alipay via one single connection to GCash QR Code solution.
The service will be rolled out in the next few weeks across GCash’s merchant network.
