GCash to help taxis shift to cashless payments: transport dept

“The Department of Transportation said Friday it tapped GCash to help equip taxis with scan-to-pay systems, as part of a pandemic normal that requires cashless payments. The joint venture of Jack Ma’s Alipay and Globe Telecom’s Mynt allows users to scan merchants QR codes and deduct the amount due from their mobile wallet. Digital payments will limit direct physical contact between drivers and passengers thus reducing the chance of spreading COVID-19, the Department of Transportation said.”
