As a step to further expand its services, GCash, through its partnership with Emotors, Inc., is expanding its scan to pay feature to the transport sector.

With the tie-up, the operator of Zum e-Series, which provides e-shuttle service for tenants and employees of the W Group, Globe Telecom, and Mynt, will be able to have Gcash as the sole payment mode available for the riders to enjoy. It is done through by scanning the QR code provided by the pilots.

The collaboration is hinged on three factors: innovative technology, clean and sustainable electric transport, and the demand for services that avoid commuting pain points. 

"This is just the beginning of our foray into the transport sector.  Wherever cash is used, we want to offer a quick and hassle-free alternative,” said Ernest Cu, chief executive officer of Globe Telecom. The telecommunications service provider, together with Ant Financial and Ayala Corp., owns Mynt, the financial technology company which operates GCash mobile wallet service.

Emotors, Inc., is a 100% Filipino-owned social enterprise committed to environmental sustainability through the Zum e-Series, an electric tricycle that can seat six passengers. It also runs quietly, economical, and emits a lower carbon footprint. The current line offers point-to-point transport from the WCC Building to Market! Market!, and vice versa.

To use GCash, users must simply download or update the GCash app on their smartphone, tap or point the phone’s camera at the QR code, and input the amount to be paid. Customers can simply load their GCash wallet in the 12,000 GCash partner outlets nationwide, including Globe Stores, SM Business Centers, Robinsons Business Centers, Puregold branches, 7-Eleven Barcode Cash In, TouchPay kiosks, and many more.
