The Philippines' leading digital wallet, GCash, introduced a new service in 2021 that allowed merchants to conveniently sell to its plethora of users. The service, dubbed GLife, is found in the GCash dashboard and allows users to order and pay for food and other items without leaving the app itself. It’s described as a virtual mall meant to transform GCash into a super lifestyle app.
When it was first launched, GLife started with a little over 30 brands, including Lazada, Purego, KFC, McDonald's, Fully Booked, and Datablitz. Its launch coincided with the surge in GCash users during the pandemic as Filipinos opted for online transactions instead of going the traditional, in-person route.
With over 51 million GCash users as of October 2021, merchants on GLife have an instant captive market. What’s more, GCash runs campaigns all year round, providing merchants the opportunity to increase brand recognition and get complimentary benefits worth up to P200,000.
More and more merchants are looking to set up shop on GLife. If you want to join in on the online selling fun as a ChatGenie-powered GLife merchant, look no further.
Give us a few pertinent details
The GLife Mini App activation process for ChatGenie merchants is hardly tedious at all. We simply ask you to fill out a Google form, which will be given to you by our Customer Success Manager.
Here, you have to provide the following company details: Email, Mini Program Name, Mini Program Category, Mini Program Image, and Customer Service Contact Number and Email. You’ll also provide a Store Description, a Slogan of at most 36 characters, and Keywords/Tags that customers can associate with your store for search purposes.
You might ask, what about the GCash Miniprogram Onboarding Form located in the ChatGenie dashboard? This was designed as well to obtain merchant information for GLife activation but it’s still under development. Once this feature goes live, the Google form will be retired and merchants will be asked to fill out this form instead.
Leave the hard work to us
Once you’ve accomplished the form, the rest of the activation process will be handled by our team of experts.
The Mini App activation involves the uploading of merchant information to the GCash console, the creation of the actual Mini program, internal testing, and review. This requires a collaboration between the company’s customer success manager, integrations developer, and quality assurance lead. Overall, the process takes three to four weeks to complete.
Be a certified GLife merchant
The interface of the GCash Mini App is pretty straightforward. Products, complete with descriptions, are at the forefront of the page and there’s a button that customers can click to view additional items. For easy viewing of products, customers can use the search bar and even filter search results based on price.
The menu at the bottom allows customers to check their cart and look at their order history for orders requiring confirmation, those still pending, as well as ones that were completed and canceled.
