This innovation offers Filipinos a faster and convenient way to pay for their purchases, where they can simply tap their cards on a payment terminal to complete a transaction. They will no longer need to dip, swipe or sign for payments under PHP 2,000.00.
“Contactless payments in the Philippines are starting to take off and we have been working on expanding our contactless acceptance footprint in the Philippines. With Robinsons coming on board as a key merchant partner, we believe more Filipinos will experience how fast, convenient and seamless contactless payments are,” said Dan Wolbert, Visa Country Manager for the Philippines and Guam.
“We want our customers to experience a faster, more efficient and secure way to purchase using contactless payments. This partnership with Visa paves the way to a new shopping journey for all of our customers, revolutionizing the way we transact and pay,” said Celina Chua, Group General Manager of Robinsons Department Store and Toys R’ Us.
“Moreover, this helps our cashiers to attend to more customers with contactless’ shorter transaction time and less waiting queues at checkouts, “ added Celina.
“By expanding contactless acceptance with more merchants, we are confident that more Filipinos will appreciate the benefits of contactless payments, which will help to accelerate the use of electronic payments in the country,” said Dan.
