Globe Telecoms introduces a mobile charging payment system for your tablet or smartphone, the Globe Charge, which allows your business to accept MasterCard and VISA credit card payments even without the usual credit card terminals on a regular cashier.
This one gives a less expensive and manageable application process for businesses wanting to add a payment option for their clients besides handing over cold cash for their purchases. Business owners can now opt to have a fast lane getting the Globe Charge device than applying for a card terminal from banks. This gives them an advantage receiving settlements as early as the next banking day, plus better rates and deals than what banks are offering.
The Globe Charge service package actually comes with the Globe Charge Mobile Card Reader, a stylus, the Globe Charge mobile app, Globe Charge Merchant account, and manuals. All payments received will be coursed trough your GCAsh account. Application process begins with purchasing the Globe Charge Mobile Card Reader device at select Globe Stores in the metro or via an online registration on Globe’s website as described step-by-step below.
