Shakey’s is one of my favorite comfort food growing up. Our family loves Shakey’s, and I only recently discovered, so does my husband’s family. I never grow tired of their thin-crust Pepperoni Pizza, Chicken and Mojos, and even their delicious garlic bread. I took for granted how easy it was to call for Shakey’s while living in Manila and how there are so many branches all over the metro. So now that I live in a farm an hour away from Iloilo City, I’m missing my easy access to Shakey’s.
Thanks to technology, I now have easier access to Shakey’s in Iloilo, and I can eventually even use my GCash to pay for my orders, be it for dine-in or delivery, as one of the biggest and most iconic pizza store chains in the country has tapped Globe Telecom and GCash to allow its customers to order and pay for their pizza, pasta, chicken, and other favorite food and drinks with just their mobile phones.
Together with Globe Business, the information and communication technology arm of Globe Telecom, Shakey’s Philippines has expanded its order and delivery operations through number #77777, which will allow over 60 million Globe customers nationwide to order toll-free via their mobile phones and landlines.
With the growing demand for delivery services, this mobile solution ensures greater reach and easier access for guests, even those in hard-to-reach provincial areas. That is why a growing number of the country’s top fast food chains have and are partnering with Globe Business to avail of the #Hashtag service.
At the same time, Shakey’s Philippines will also start using the GCash Scan to Pay service, which utilizes QR Codes, to provide a hassle-free payment system that comes with special promos and discounts for guests.
With over 200 stores nationwide, Shakey’s Philippines intends to roll out GCash Scan-to-Pay within the year. The rollout will pilot initially in the following 11 Shakey’s branches: BGC Stopover, Venice Grand Canal Mall, Loyola (Katipunan), Buendia, Valero, Glorietta, Park Square Makati, Makati Avenue, UPS (Shakey’s WOW Center), Magallanes, and Market! Market!
With this added partnership with Shakey’s Philippines, every GCash Scan to Pay user is entitled to its promos. For instance, a 10 percent cashback capped at P500 will be rewarded to GCash users who pay through the feature until March 31, 2018.
To use GCash Scan to Pay, customers just need to download the latest version of the GCash App, register for an account, and fund their GCash wallet at any of over 12,000 GCash Partner Outlets nationwide. Once funds are loaded in the GCash wallet, a customer can then swipe to the left or choose Pay QR then Scan QR and point the smartphone’s camera to the merchant’s QR code to scan. They can also pay bills and send money through the GCash App.
