G-Cash gets Jologs

I was walking along a busy street when an LPG truck drove by. It had a tarpaulin streamer on it and had the G-Cash sign on the streamer.

It announced that you could purchase from this LPG distributor using G-Cash.

I didn’t get the details of the transaction. But what is notable about this is that the LPG company was not notable. What I’m trying to say is that G-Cash is starting to partner-up with smaller and obscure companies.

This obscure company (I didn’t even recognize the name!) is unlike the roster of G-Cash partners. If you take a look at the list of G-Cash partner merchants, you would observe that they are mostly establishments with country-wide operations catering to economic classes ABC.

Good indication: The G-Cash partner merchant network is now trickling down to the lesser known establishments. Hopefully soon, you’ll have small and medium enterprises within the G-Cash network. Think about going to your Greenhills tiangge and doing your Christmas shopping using G-Cash.

And then maybe in the future, jeepney drivers will also start accepting G-Cash as payment for pamasahe (fare).

    hi. ramil gave me your blog site. me questions kasi ako regarding G-Cash. We’re developing an application that has an interface with G-Cash and since no one in the team actually uses G-Cash, we are not sure what exactly happens with G-Cash during transactions.

    My question is, what is the usual message that the subscribers receive when they receive the message asking them to confirm their purchase thru G-Cash? And how do they tell the system that they approve the transaction?

    Thanks!

  • hi yen,
    you can talk to a g-cash business dev
    representative. they have an api to
    the e-wallet that might fit your
    needs.

    the other workaround is via a merchant
    sim connected to a gsm modem. or
    if its for testing purposes, a regular
    g-cash registered sim.

    cheers!

  • hi yen,

    makinig ka diyan kay nox. He knows a lot about G-Cash, lalo sa technical side. 😉

    Here’s my response, originally posted on Technobiography:

    Hi Yen,
    Do thank Ramil for me. Which Ramil? 😉

    > what is the usual message that the subscribers receive when they receive the message asking them to confirm their purchase thru G-Cash?

    It will say something like: “SM1234 wishes to bill you P1234.50. Reply with your m-PIN to confirm. No response in 5 minutes will cancel the transaction. Reference#54321”

    > And how do they tell the system that they approve the transaction?

    The G-Cash user replies to the message with his/her m-PIN.

    Different partner merchants transact differently. Try searching “G-Cash” in my Technobiography archive, I have many examples there.

    My best advice: Try it yourself. You’ll understand it a lot better if you yourself do the transaction.

    Goodluck, Yen, feel free to send me an email.

  • dont they launch a commercial where a taxi driver allegedly receives payment thru G-cash..?

  • mgestalt

    heard from a friend that g-cash requires uat for a valid partner and all cases and scenarios will be covered.

  • Actually did the integration work for this company w/ Globe and youd be surprised at the volume of sales/customers they have. Anyway its a good day when we can start seeing these services trickle down to the massess…

  • JLP > youd be surprised at the volume of sales/customers they have.

    Hi JLP. That’s good news! Surprise me more, send me some figures! 😉

    I’m glad business is picking up in that aspect. Any other usage figures/anecdotes you have of other G-Cash partner merchants?
