How Do I Live: Go for the Safer Way with GrabPay
May 14, 2020
Created in Partnership with Grab Philippines
Here’s what we know about the coronavirus so far. Formally known as the SARS-CoV 2, the virus spreads through small droplets from the nose or mouth when a person with COVID-19 (the technical term for the disease it causes) coughs, sneezes, or speaks. Even if a person doesn’t show symptoms, they can still spread the virus!
This is why we’re mandated to practice physical distancing—at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from other people. This is also why we need to take all the necessary precautions to reduce physical contact. But it’s kind of inevitable when we’re handling money. We can’t just put our needs on hold. We have bills to pay, and groceries and medicines to buy.
That’s where GrabPay comes in!
Introducing the safer way to pay!
Before the quarantine, you’ve probably interacted with (or at least heard of) the Grab app. You could have taken a ride, gotten food, had something delivered, or something else altogether. Well, GrabPay is an e-wallet built into the app, which you could use to do cashless payments for your Grab transactions and more!
GrabPay is the safer way to pay for food deliveries from GrabFood, groceries and other essentials from GrabMart, and definitely a better payment option for GrabCar rides once the ECQ is lifted. All because there’s less person-to-person contact!
This way you can also keep your parents safe! Teach your mom or dad how to pay for household bills through the Grab app! Pay for your water, electricity, postpaid bills, and more with just a few taps so that there will be no “tributes” in your house.
Bored at home? You can use your GrabPay Wallet to pay for your gaming pins straight from your Grab app! Get exclusive gaming deals and earn GrabRewards points every time you pay using GrabPay for Mobile Legends, Ragnarok M: Eternal Love, PUBG, and more!
By reducing physical contact, you and your family, and even your Grab drivers will be safe.
Not to mention, you get to keep track of your budget and expenses at all times. Seeing how much you have, straight from your Grab app, makes it easier to budget than having to keep a mental note or counting how much is in your wallet all the time.
Stay safe. Stay sane. And get rewarded for it!
If you don’t know it yet, you get even more GrabRewards points when you pay with GrabPay than you would if you paid with cash! For every transaction you make with GrabPay, you’re doing your part in #FlatteningTheCurve, while still getting the things you need or want. Staying at home becomes more bearable!
As you earn GrabRewards points through the rides you take, the food you order, or anything else you use GrabPay for, you’ll eventually have enough points for vouchers and discounts with Grab’s partners! When you maximize your use of the app, you also maximize life, for everyone!
Do your part! Activate your GrabPay Wallet
You can activate your GrabPay Wallet faster than how long it took you to read this article! No long bank lines. No waiting time. And best of all, no person-to-person contact.
Just open your Grab app, tap the Payment icon on the screen, and complete your GrabPay profile to get started. Tap tap tap, and you’ve got your own e-wallet instantly! You don’t even have to download any new app, because it’s already built into the Grab app.
Want to add money to your account? You can cash into your GrabPay Wallet using your debit card or your parents’ credit card. You could even send and receive money to or from your friends and family for free, all through your GrabPay Wallet!
