Tap To Pay With Visa at Robinsons!

As a mother who carries a lot of bags with me whenever I go out because of course I usually carry my family things  too, I prefer limiting my personal wallets and things because I might misplace them because I have so many baggages. This way, I usually just carry my debit cards and only carry enough cash for emergency usage. I usually go cashless if given the chance because bringing a whole lot of cash may endanger my family. Good thing Robinsons, one of the largest business chains here in the Philippines launched its collaboration with VISA. 

Last August 5, 2019, a collaboration between Visa and Robinsons were announced. Robinsons will now be accepting contactless payment on all its department stores and supermaket all over the Philippines. There will be 700 contactless terminals which will be enabled across 16 locations here in our country, where Visa credit cardholders may be used through contactless payment scheme. 

With the introduction of contactless payments, we won't be needing our cards to swipe or sign for payments which are made under 2,000 php. It offers us a more convenient way to secure our puchase plus make us feel safer in shopping. This is one faster way to pay and a less hassle way because we won't need to bring that much cash anymore. With this ease, I must say that I personally love this partnership. 

“Contactless payments in the Philippines are starting to take off and we have been working on expanding our contactless acceptance footprint in the Philippines. To date, we are seeing triple digit year-on-year growth in terms of contactless spend, and number of transactions in the country. With Robinsons coming on board as a key merchant partner, we believe more FIlipinos will experience how fast, convenient and seamless contactless payments are. Contactless payments also help Filipinos to embrace paying with their payment cards for small ticket sized items. The average ticket size for contactless transactions is approximately 1700 Philippines Peso. By expanding contactless acceptance with more merchants, we are confident that more Filipinos will appreciate the benefits of contactless payments, which will help to accelerate the use of electronic payments in the country”, said Dan Wolbert, Visa Country Manager for the Philippines and Guam.

Celina Chua, Group General Manager of Robinsons Department Store and Toy R’ Us said, “We want our customers to experience a faster, more efficient and secure way to purchase using contactless payments. This partnership with Visa paves the way to a new shopping journey for all our customers, revolutionizing the way we transact and pay. Moreover, this helps our cashiers to attend to more customers with contactless. Contactless is truly the future of payments as we, Filipinos veer towards becoming a digital cashless technology.
