My wife and I were invited to attend Globe’s GCash American Express Virtual Card launch at the Quezon Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La just recently.
Little did we know that what was going to be revealed to us and to a select number of individuals from traditional and social media was something absolutely exciting!
In a nutshell, Globe understands the difficulty Filipinos encounter when it comes to online shopping especially when accessing US-based merchants/sites. Some merchants require you to have a valid US address… a few do not even ship outside the country. Some ship abroad, but freight charges usually cost an arm and a leg (Ouch!)
With a GCash American Express account, you finally have a valid US
credit debit card that is seamlessly linked to your GCash mobile wallet.
Shop online from both local and international sites that welcome American Express. Digital downloads, such as buying songs, movies or smartphone/tablet apps online is absolutely possible. It is a secure and convenient way of paying for your online purchases anytime (provided you have sufficient funds in your GCash wallet).
No valid US address? No problem. GCash American Express will provide you with a valid physical US address (courtesy of My-ShoppingBox.com) where you can have online purchases dropped off at.
No valid US phone number? No problem. GCash American Express has got you covered as well. You will be provided with one (courtesy of My-ShoppingBox.com).
Worried about expensive shipping costs? Don’t fret. GCash American Express’ shipping costs (via My-ShoppingBox.com) is rock bottom cheap!
