Phoenix Petroleum Expands Contactless Payment Offering to Over 200 Stationsby Fintech News Philippines November 20, 2020
Home-grown oil company Phoenix Petroleum Philippines has expanded its contactless payment service to more than 200 of its gas stations nationwide.
From the initial 100 stations offering payments through Gcash, Grabpay, Alipay, and WeChat Pay, the service has now been implemented in 160 stations in Luzon, 47 stations in Metro Manila, 18 stations in Visayas and 22 stations in Mindanao.
So far, Phoenix has processed around 30,000 contactless payment transactions at its stations since the service was launched in June.
The service is part of the company’s extensive campaign to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which may possibly be contracted through paper bills.
“As more and more people opt for e-payment options, we are working continuously so we may extend our contactless payment service to more motorists nationwide. Since the pandemic hit the country, Phoenix is among the first to adapt and offer this type of payment option. We aim to continue providing innovative services like this, along with our high-quality fuel and non-fuel products, to satisfy the needs of the changing market,”
said Eric Inocencio, General Manager for Retail Sales of Phoenix Petroleum.
“Through our pioneering partnership, more Filipinos are able to embrace the benefits of a safe and seamless cashless payment through GrabPay every time they gas up with Phoenix Petroleum. We have made this even more exciting as customers earn GrabRewards points every me they pay using GrabPay, helping them save more on their future transactions. We hope to continue building on these meaningful involves as we build a safer and more seamless cashless future for our communities,”
said Jonathan Bates, Head of Philippines GrabPay.
Aside from Gcash and GrabPay, motorists also have the option to pay their Phoenix fuels via Alipay and WeChatPay at participant stations nationwide.
Recently, Phoenix has also been transforming its stations to become a one-stop-shop for everyday errands with the inclusion of more FamilyMart stores, Phoenix SUPER LPG hubs, and a micro financial and bills payment feature via the Possible device.
