How would you like to book your movie date and buy your movie tickets from your GCash app? It’s now possible!
The GMovies booking feature is now integrated into the GCash mobile app. The feature allows users to select cinema locations, movie showing dates, and seat numbers as well as pay on the spot with GCash. Just imagine, you won’t need to fall in line anymore to buy physical movie tickets. Just tap the “Buy Tickets” tab inside the app.
John Rubio, CEO and President of Mynt, a subsidiary of Globe Telecom dedicated to developing payments solutions using GCash, says that being able to purchase digital tickets is part of their goal to build a cashless ecosystem. Glenn Estrella, Vice President of Globe Digital Ventures, also said “The synergy of GMovies which is the only aggregator of movie ticketing in the country and GCash, the Philippines’ leading mobile payment service, widens our reach in serving our customers better.”
Users only need to download or update to the latest GCash app version from iTunes or Google Play, and cash-in to their accounts for free by going to over 12,000 partner outlets nationwide. Customers that book movies using the GCash app from September 1 – 31, 2017 will get a PhP 100 cashback for their first transaction. The GMovies feature is currently available for SM Cinemas with Ayala Cinemas to follow soon.
The GCash app already allows one to buy prepaid load, pay bills, send money, make donations, shop online, and purchase goods. GCash also previously announced the first QR code payments service which allows users to pay using their smartphones just by scanning a QR code on a merchant’s signage. That eliminates the need to carry around cash or debit/credit cards by providing a more secure and convenient way to make payments.
