AllBank and UnionPay International collaborate to boost digital payments in the Philippines
AllBank (A Thrift Bank), Inc. announced today an exciting partnership with UnionPay International to boost financial inclusion in a digitally driven market. Through this collaboration, AllBank UnionPay cardholders now enjoy the convenience and efficiency of digital payments at popular merchants in The Philippines, and can even shop online in the comfort of their homes. As soon as international travel restrictions are gradually eased, AllBank UnionPay cardholders may simply bring and present their AllBank UnionPay debit cards, cash cards and/or prepaid cards to shop and/or withdraw cash in 180 countries and regions.
In line with its commitment to digitally modernizing banking products and services, AllBank recently launched its Electronic Know Your Customer (E-KYC) facility where customers can conveniently apply for cash cards / debit cards without physically completing bank forms in any AllBank branches. With this innovation, card application may be initiated using E-KYC via AllBank’s Mobile Banking Application that is readily available for download in both android and iOS mobile devices. AllBank commits to further enhance the features of its cards, and introduce contactless payment features through UnionPay’s QuickPass (contactless) payment facility.
Aside from modernizing traditional payments, AllBank will soon expand the features of its digital wallet powered by UnionPay, so that cardholders can conveniently utilize digital payment functions of AllBank’s Mobile Banking Application and enjoy the benefits of UnionPay QR Code Payment across 12,000 acceptance points in the Philippines and at over 30 million merchants around the world.
“We’re very much thrilled to be joining hands with UnionPay International to offer not just traditional card payments but soon to expand the innovative payment experience for our customers.” said Mr. Jesus Vicente Garcia, President of AllBank. “Our vision is to allow our customers to enjoy a seamless banking experience. Our collaboration with UnionPay International will help our expansion strategy and boost consumer adoption, especially during this pandemic,” said Mr. Garcia.
