As we transition into a ‘new normal’, one of the things that is being pushed into the forefront is the ability to pay without cash. Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) along with all of its food and restaurant brands in the country has been taking this seriously and has started piloting an interactive mobile ordering system via chatbot with a seamless payment experience powered by PayMaya.
Customers in select areas can now use their credit, debit, or prepaid cards, as well as their PayMaya e-wallet accounts, to pay for their favorite food items and meals via the Facebook Messenger channels of Jollibee, Burger King, Chowking, Mang Inasal, and Red Ribbon. They are all currently running on beta version, and will soon be available in the Facebook Messenger of Greenwich, as well.
All you need to do is type “#order” and send this to the Facebook chatbot of your favorite JFC restaurant. Then, select the meals you’d like to order, pay by selecting their preferred cashless payment option, and wait for your food to be delivered to your home. Easy, right?
As an added treat, you can get up to 100% cashback when you pay using their PayMaya registered mobile number upon ordering via chatbot with a minimum spend of Php500.
“As we implement more stringent safety measures in this ‘new normal’, the availability of PayMaya’s cashless payments solutions helps ensure that both our customers and frontliner workers are protected, while at the same time giving them a more joyful experience when they order their favorite food from any of our brands,” says Jollibee Global Brand CMO, JFC Philippines Country Business Group and concurrent Jollibee PH Marketing Head Francis Flores.
Aside from enabling the cashless payments acceptance of various JFC brands, PayMaya has also partnered with Jollibee Group Foundation to allow them to receive donations from anywhere around the world via the #OneAgainstCOVID19 campaign website (pymy.co/jollibee) or through the Pay Bills function of the PayMaya app.
