For many (if not all) Pinoys, Christmas is all about giving. We look forward to buying gifts for family members and loved ones. It’s a long held Filipino tradition that we are truly proud of. And no matter how different this year’s celebrations may be from what we are used to because of the ongoing pandemic, the spirit of giving will always be alive in all of us.
Yearly, Globe myBusiness supports SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) with the #GiftLocal campaign that aims to encourage Filipino consumers to purchase their gifts to family and friends from local small businesses.
Apart from improving and expanding its services and ease of use all over the country, it seems that there’s no stopping GCash from growing and increasing its reach beyond the Philippines.
Number one Philippine mobile brand, Globe Telecom, recently partnered with top online retailer and marketplace, Lazada, to bring its internationally-acclaimed GCash mobile wallet to the eCommerce space in South East Asia.
Lazada is owned by Rocket Internet, an internet platform that identifies and builds proven internet business models then transfers them to new, underserved or untapped markets where it seeks to scale them into market leading online companies.
The GCash and Lazada partnership was formally forged (and signed) by Globe Telecom President and CEO Ernest Cu and Lazada Founder and CEO Maximilian Bittner just last April 22 in Seoul, South Korea.
So, what benefits do we reap from this GCash and Lazada partnership, you might wonder?
Lazada’s strong presence not only here, but all over Southeast Asia is a testament to its commitment and dedication to providing consumers with a convenient, secure and reliable means of shopping over the internet.
And NOW, with J.P. Morgan partnering with Lazada, it seems our friendly online department store, is all set to reach greater heights in the very near future.
J.P. Morgan’s investment is great news for all of us who have embraced online shopping as a way of life as well as for others who are looking to find convenient ways to purchase items.
