MANILA, Philippines — AllBank (A Thrift Bank), Inc. announced an exciting partnership with UnionPay International to boost financial inclusion in a digitally driven market.

Through this collaboration, AllBank UnionPay cardholders now enjoy the convenience and efficiency of digital payments at popular merchants in the Philippines, and can even shop online in the comfort of their homes.

As soon as international travel restrictions are gradually eased, AllBank UnionPay cardholders may simply bring and present their AllBank UnionPay debit cards, cash cards and/or prepaid cards to shop and/or withdraw cash in 180 countries and regions. 

In line with its commitment to digitally modernizing banking products and services, AllBank recently launched its Electronic Know Your Customer (E-KYC) facility where customers can conveniently apply for cash cards or debit cards without physically completing bank forms in any AllBank branches.

With this innovation, card application may be initiated using E-KYC via AllBank’s Mobile Banking Application that is readily available for download in both android and iOS mobile devices. AllBank commits to further enhance the features of its cards, and introduce contactless payment features through UnionPay’s QuickPass (contactless) payment facility.

Cardholders can conveniently utilize digital payment functions of AllBank’s Mobile Banking Application and enjoy the benefits of UnionPay QR Code Payment across 12,000 acceptance points in the Philippines.

“We’re very much thrilled to be joining hands with UnionPay International to offer not just traditional card payments but soon to expand the innovative payment experience for our customers.” Jesus Vicente Garcia, president of AllBank, said.

“Our vision is to allow our customers to enjoy a seamless banking experience. Our collaboration with UnionPay International will help our expansion strategy and boost consumer adoption, especially during this pandemic,” Garcia continued.

“As a global payment brand that promotes e-Payments by connecting consumers, financial institutions and businesses, UnionPay is pleased to partner with AllBank to enable more consumers in the Philippines to enjoy quick and secure cashless transactions with AllBank UnionPay Debit and Cash/Prepaid Cards. This collaboration is also in line with our vision to promote financial inclusion in the country," Qing Zhang, senior country manager at UnionPay Philippines, said,

In addition to card payment, AllBank customers can soon enjoy the convenience of making UnionPay QR Code payment both locally and abroad when the AllBank Mobile Banking app is enhanced to read UnionPay QR Code,” he concluded.
