GCash to adopt Alipay cashless payment model in China and rest of Asia

GCash is adopting the cashless payments model of Alipay, China’s leading third-party mobile and online payments platform, which is enjoying unprecedented success in China, India and the rest of Asia to give people ease, convenience, and security when purchasing goods and services from lowly street vendors to high-end shops.

Alipay is operated by Ant Financial which has earlier entered into a joint venture with leading Philippine telecommunications provider Globe Telecom and the country’s oldest conglomerate Ayala Corporation to boost the operations of Mynt, parent company of GCash mobile wallet service.

“I believe e-payments have a tremendous amount of potential in the Philippines given the continuous growth of smartphone penetration and the number of unbanked Filipinos. Only a very select group of Filipinos have access to financial services so we want to provide that access to them. Part of financial services is cashless payments. It has taken off in other countries like China and India where the people have realized its value because of the convenience and security that it provides -- merchants and buyers don’t have to prepare change, e-money cannot be easily stolen, payments can easily be tracked, among other things,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.

Tyler the Creator X Converse second golf le fleur* collaboration

Several years ago, Tyler the Creator had a vision to launch a line of sneakers to go with his Golf Le Fleur* brand. Converse and Tyler talked about joining creative forces to create unique ideas of ownership and identity and everyone thought it was a good idea. From there, the Golf Le Fleur* collection was born.

Together, Converse and Tyler celebrate freedom of expression and choice through collaborative design made for the street.

Building on the energy and excitement of a successful partnership this past Summer, which celebrated the heritage of culture and sport in the Converse One Star silhouette, Tyler brings his imaginative design, aesthetic and bold spirit to create something entirely new with the Golf Le Fleur* collection.
