MANILA, Philippines — The international arm of fully integrated telco PLDT Inc. has teamed up with digital entertainment enabler UniPin for online game payments.

PLDT Global Corp. (PGC) and UniPin will provide online game vouchers and allow users to top up their accounts directly via PGC’s digital distribution platform called Vortex.

“We recognize the growing demand for services that cater to the emerging industry of esports globally, and our partnership with UniPin allows us to provide Filipinos worldwide with digital products and services made available through Vortex,” said Albert Villa-Real, senior vice president and chief commercial officer at PGC.

“With UniPin as a partner, our kababayans can easily access these e-vouchers and share them with their loved ones, so that they can continue to bond online no matter the distance,” Villa-Real said.

PGC said the partnership is aligned with PLDT’s focus program on sustainability of connecting everyone, everywhere.

UniPin, a leading digital entertainment provider for online games, serves seven million active game users across 30 countries.

Through its partnership with PGC, distribution partners and esports enthusiasts can access UniPin’s e-vouchers for online games at a discounted price.

“We are excited about this partnership with PLDT Global. Together, we can build a finely tuned digital ecosystem that will bring many benefits, not just for enterprises, but for end-users as well. Aside from that, PLDT has a strong network and IT infrastructure that is essential to thrive in this digital era and help businesses harness the power of technology for growth,” UniPin CEO Ashadi Ang said.

As PLDT’s international arm, PGC has been providing products and services to roaming customers of Smart, PLDT’s wireless unit, and migrant Filipinos all over the world through its multiple partnerships with international carriers and distributors.

PGC has also developed several solutions such as Free Bee to help Filipinos abroad conveniently connect to their families and loved ones back home.
