MANILA, Philippines – GCash, the mobile money service of Globe Telecom, held its biggest GCash bazaar last October 24-26, 2014 in celebration of its 10th anniversary in the mobile money industry and kicked-off the Christmas season, giving customers first dibs on extensive shopping finds and gift choices.
During the 3-day bazaar at the Eastwood Mall Open Park, over 50 merchants coming from retail fashion, baby products, specialty market, and travel industries gathered for a more convenient, safe, and hassle-free shopping experience using Globe Charge, an innovative credit card payment solution which turns mobile phones into a point-of-sale payment card terminal, to provide more payment options to customers.
“We capped off our week-long celebration of our 10th anniversary with our biggest GCASH Bazaar ever. With our partner-merchants using Globe Charge to accept payments, we gave our customers a wonderful shopping experience,” says Xavier Marzan, Chief Operating Officer of G-Xchange (GXI), the operator of GCASH. “With Globe Charge, we are changing the way bazaars do business in the country by helping small and medium enterprises provide more payment options to their customers, thereby growing their customer base and boosting their sales.”
To make the shopping experience easier and more convenient, customers who dropped by the GCash Bazaar were also allowed to pay for their purchases using their Visa, MasterCard debit and credit card. Globe Charge continues to break new grounds by enabling card acceptance on a massive scale by accepting GCash Card payments like PowerPay+ cards. Aside from this, customers may also join the daily raffle where they can win an iPhone 5s, a Samsung Galaxy S5 or an iPad Mini when they visit the different Globe Charge merchants.
Since its launch early this year, Globe Charge has acquired almost a thousand merchants. Of the growing customer base covered, users come from dental and medical professions, specialty wholesale and retail trade, travel agencies and retail clothing.
