GOKONGWEI-led GoTyme Bank Corp. announced it has inked a partnership deal with Robinsons Retail Holdings Inc. for the use of the latter’s flagship convenience store banner Uncle John’s.
According to the digital bank, the partnership expands its deposit and withdrawal footprint just as it hits the one-million customer mark in less than a year of operations.
GoTyme account holders who require physical transactions can deposit and withdraw cash at any of Uncle John’s 340 branches nationwide, the bank said.
The transactions are efficient, free and done within two minutes, it said.
“By providing seamless digital products and services supported by human touch, we deliver personal service with greater empathy. By revolutionizing the way we can bank in every corner, in every street, in every neighborhood, we bring GoTyme Bank closer and closer to you, with our human touch—just a few steps away from your doorstep,” GoTyme Bank co-CEO Albert Raymund O. Tinio said.
“We are very happy to have partnered with GoTyme Bank in bringing more convenient ways for their users to deposit and withdraw money. Now, you can easily access your funds and pay through your GoTyme Bank app with seamless convenience and effortless comfort. With this unique and growing partnership, preferred banking will always be at your fingertips or just around the corner,” Robinsons Supermarket Corp. Convenience Store Division General Manager R Suresh Ramalinggam said.
GoTyme Bank customers can also pay for purchases at Uncle John’s and other partner merchants with the app’s new “Pay with QR” feature. Uncle John’s customers who pay with QR are entitled to a raffle entry for “Fry Free for a Year” with every P200 purchase. Winners get a year’s supply of Uncle John’s fried chicken. Customers can earn unlimited raffle entries but can only win once. Promo period is until end October.
GoTyme Bank also recently rolled out a new feature that allows users to pay their bills via the GoTyme Bank app, via a partnership with Bayad Center. Participating billers include Meralco, Maynilad Water, Manila Water, Home Credit, Pag-Ibig, Smart, Sky Affiliates, Converge, Visayan Electric, Autosweep RFID, Davao Light, Cignal, Pag-Ibig OFW and Easytrip RFID.
