Grab has revealed it pushes for safer payments with GrabPay as it doubles down on more cashless services that will enable Filipinos to keep up with their daily expenses in a secured manner. 

GrabPay was initially rolled out in the Philippines in 2016, and it is a built-in mobile wallet within the Grab app that powers its everyday services and provides convenient and secure cashless payments. 

To help Filipinos go through the pandemic, Grab is expanding its ecosystem with new services that are powered by GrabPay to allow users to get their daily essential needs and keep up with their transactions while still avoiding contact with cash and observing proper distancing protocols. GrabPay can now be used to:

  • Get grocery items delivered straight to the doorstep with GrabMart – GrabMart is an on-demand grocery delivery service that aims to make shopping for basic necessities easier. With GrabPay, users can purchase grocery items, personal care products, and soon, even medicines, from specialty stores and retail partners such as Robinsons Supermarket, Great Deals Ecommerce Corporation, FamilyMart, Starbucks,  ASSI Fresh Plaza, Fetch! Naturals, Freshmart, and more.
  • Pay bills within the Grab Pay for food and parcel delivery –  Grab encourages users to adopt a full contactless delivery of GrabFood orders and GrabExpress deliveries using cashless payment via GrabPay. 
  • Send GrabPay to family and friends – Family members and friends can transfer funds to their loved ones using their GrabPay wallet. In the Payments tab, users can transfer funds by clicking on the Send button, choosing the number of the recipient, and inputting the value of the desired amount. 
  • Pay for items in partner establishments such as SM and Watsons – Users can opt for a contactless and cashless payment using GrabPay’s scan-to-pay service. They just need to click on the Payment tab and choose the ‘Pay’ button to scan the QR code in the checkout counter.
