Digital payments company Visa partners with Jollibee to make cashless payments available in over 1,000 branches of the fast-food chain’s stores nationwide.
This marks the first time that Jollibee is accepting card payments in physical stores in the Philippines. To celebrate the partnership, Visa and Jollibee launched the “Tap-Sarap with Visa” promotion powered by Maya Business.
“With the acceptance of Visa cards at Jollibee in the Philippines, we hope to encourage more Filipinos to experience the benefits of going cashless, such as enjoying a hassle-free experience when paying for goods and services,” said saidJeff Navarro, country manager for the Philippines and Guam, Visa. “We are excited to roll out cashless payments with Visa to more Jollibee stores in the future.”
Ongoing until March 1, 2023, customers who spend a minimum of P500 on their food purchase using a Visa prepaid, debit, or credit card at any participating Jollibee store in the Philippines will have complimentary treats available for dine-in, take-out, and drive-through transactions.
The partnership reflects the growing preference of Filipinos for cashless payments. Visa’s latest Consumer Payment Attitudes Study, which was conducted with 1,000 Filipino respondents in August to September 2021, showed that 84 percent have already tried going cashless in 2021, with 60 percent carrying less cash in their wallets.
This study also found that of the various cashless payment options, card payments (both online and at physical merchants) continue to be one of the preferred options.
