Discovering The Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+

GCash The Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+
Discovering The Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+


Most working Filipinos dream of running their own businesses someday, imagining all the perks that come with being business owners  - “I have my own business”  does have a nice ring to it - makes you sound rich and often forgetting the responsibilities it entails. That is, you may be the boss, but in the real world, you will most likely also be the human resources officer, accountant, secretary, and occasionally, even the courier. 



Discovering the Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+


This is why many micro-, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) lean on digital innovations like GCash’s Powerpay+ disbursement platform to make their lives easier and cut down their businesses’ operational costs.


GCash The Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+

Introduced in 2013, Powerpay+ was created to streamline business operations through a hassle-free disbursement facility that is accessible even on mobile phones. Powerpay+ allows business owners to release allowances, loans, salaries, commissions and other funds to their workers—regular, contractual or even interns—through their GCash accounts. 


GCash The Power of Online Disbursements with Powerpay+


How does this work?

Business owners or their HR officers can apply online at www.gcashbiz.com/login. After submitting requirements such as a certificate of registration from the Bureau of Internal Revenue and/or Securities and Exchange Commission, articles of incorporation, general information sheet, etc. business owners can start onboarding with GCash. 

GCash will create a wallet for the business and give its owners or their representatives access to a central database where they can upload all information, including IDs and signatures, of their payees. They should then deposit an amount to their GCash account that is sufficient to cover all disbursements. A file, which details the types and amounts of disbursements—whether scheduled, recurring or real-time—would be uploaded to the database and become the basis for fund release. 

The funds will be credited to the payees’ GCash accounts safely and in real-time. Unlike payroll accounts in most banks, GCash does not have a minimum or maintaining balance. But like bank accounts, the money in GCash wallets can be withdrawn from any Bancnet ATMs using the GCash EMV-ready Mastercard, which will be issued to all payees. To ensure security, SMS notifications will be sent to GCash users for all kinds of transactions. 

The efficiency and convenience of using Powerpay+ has served both MSMEs and the country’s biggest companies, such as Ayala Corp., Concentrix, Grab, Generika and Makati Development Corp. As of July, there were more than a million people using GCash’s Powerpay+ platform.

All businesses adopting Powerpay+ will receive training from GCash and assistance to address any concerns. Whether yours is an enterprise employing 10 or 10,000, the flexibility, security, and reliability of Powerpay+ will make you feel like a real boss

CIMB Bank x GCash

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 0 Comments

CIMB Bank Philippines (CIMB Bank PH) today announced that it has garnered 500,000 customers, approximately six months after opening its doors for business in the Philippines. The milestone was reached anchored on a strong proposition of co-creation and partnership between CIMB Bank and GCash.

CIMB Bank Announces 500,000th Customer; Expands strategic partnership with GCash


The all-digital, mobile-first CIMB Bank PH, was launched in early 2019 with a goal of bringing a unique and differentiated banking proposition to Filipinos. Anchored on a DNA of strong strategic partnerships and solving customer pain points digitally, CIMB Bank PH had forged a partnership with GCash, to allow GCash’s customers direct, paperless and seamless access to savings account services, a product termed GSave. GCash is an epayments platform owned by Mynt, the revolutionary fintech startup of Globe Telecom, Ayala Corporation and Ant Financial, an affiliate of Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group.

Tengku Dato’ Sri Zafrul Aziz, Group CEO, CIMB Group, who was in Manila to celebrate this milestone said, “CIMB Bank PH is surely the fastest growing bank in ASEAN, a wonderful achievement, and a strong testament of things that can be achieved in the regime of digital-only banks. We are motivated by this and will continue to innovate for our customers. Well done to the teams.”

In line with this, CIMB Bank PH and GCash also announced that the GSave bank account will be exclusively offered only on the GCash platform. The companies also said they will be working together to make added suites of financial services products available to GCash customers in the future. These services will be announced in due course. 

“The partnership with GCash was central to us achieving this milestone. It is a live case study of bank-tech partnerships, a combination of banking expertise and technology platform plays, and the opportunities it allows both parties to access. I look forward to developing more propositions with GCash to further establish our mobile banking presence in the Philippines.” Zafrul added, 

Anthony Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of GCash affirmed its shared mission with CIMB Bank to increase the accessibility of financial products and services for all Filipinos. “The acquisition of 500,000 users is a clear testament that the partnership between GCash and CIMB Bank through GSave is a success. We welcome this achievement and the deepening of our collaboration with CIMB Bank, and assure our users that we will continue to provide more innovative services to address the banking and financial needs of Filipinos who aspire for financially better lives for their families.”

The 500,000 GSave users are now enjoying the benefits of CIMB’s savings account, which is available as the Save Money feature on the GCash app. GSave offers an interest rate of 3 percent per annum, which is more than ten times higher than those interest rates offered by most Philippine banks. 

Additionally, GSave does not require an initial deposit or maintaining balance, nor does it impose service charges for transactions—greatly reducing the barriers for ordinary Filipinos to open and maintain a savings account.
