At Cloudfone, the word awesome is not just a hype word; ‘awesome’ expresses a mix of feelings that communicate one’s joy, one’s feeling of being above satisfied, one’s feeling of getting significant value for their money and one’s trust and belief that the product he or she has just received was made with the consumer in mind. Cloudfone strives from consumers on a daily basis for that reaction. Filipinos deserve more not less; Filipinos deserve better.
It is this drive in Cloudfone that has allowed it to win awards with their smartphones from various reputable tech organizations such as, ‘2018 Best Smartphone Under 5K ‘Thrill Boost 3’, ‘Thrill Plus 2’, ‘Next’ & ‘Next Lite’; ‘2017 Best Smartphone Brand’ (Teknogadyet); ‘2016 Best Smartphone under 10K’ (Teknogadyet); ‘2016 Best Smartphone under 5K’ (Teknogadyet); ‘2016 Best Budget Smartphone’ (YugaTech); ‘2016 Best Entry Level Smartphone’ (GizGuide); and ‘2016 Best Mid-Range Smartphone’ (GizGuide).
“Cloudfone’s proactive collaboration with trustworthy companies like Mynt, the operator of GCash is a clear testament of our commitment to improve our customers’ experience. GCash Scan-to-Pay technology will now be available in all Cloudfone and Android Zone stores in the country. This will improve how payments are made in our stores and we are very excited for this partnership,” said Eric Yu, President and CEO of Cloudfone and Android Zone. Android Zone holds the latest smartphones from top smartphone Brands in all of its stores nationwide and the only official dealer of Xiaomi products.
Mynt, owned by Globe Telecom, Ant Financial and Ayala Corp., has been finding ways to make payments in the Philippines safer and more convenient through its GCash e-wallet which can be used to pay for purchases and bills in various establishments in the Philippines other through GCash Mastercard or by scanning the QR codes via the mobile phone.
“Partnering with GCash is another step in Cloudfone’s vision of bringing quality smartphones to the Filipino.
We were awarded as the Best Smartphone Brand for 2017 because consumers see that we are consistent in bringing to their hands smartphones that otherwise may not be affordable for the average pinoy.
GCash allows us to offer another solid payment option, further making it more convenient for Filipinos to purchase our awesome devices in our Cloudfone stores nationwide as well as in our multi-brand Android Zone retail stores!
Being awesome is not just about quality, it also means convenience and that’s what this partnership brings to the Filipino!”
Using the GCash scan to pay feature is easy and hassle-free. Customers just have to download the GCash App for free from the App Store or Google Playstore and register an account. Once installed, customers can cash-in or reload at any GCash kiosk and digital payment booth in Globe stores, and in over 12,000 GCash Partner Outlets such as Robinson’s Business Centers, SM Business Centers, Puregold branches, 7-Eleven Cliqq kiosks, and TouchPay kiosks.
With the QR-based mobile payment app, customers can shop by just scanning the QR codes displayed by partner merchants and establishments. Using the smartphone app, customers no longer have carry around cash to shop and pay their bills. It’s convenient, safe and enables shoppers to keep track of their expenses.
