GrabPay, the online payments solution from Grab, has been a dependable payment platform for many Filipinos since its launch in the Philippines in 2018. It is a reliable and safe option for cashless transactions thanks to its superior security features and also offers everyday value and convenience for users.

Zero Convenience Fees

With GrabPay, consumers are guaranteed seamless cash-in and transfer methods that allow them to either add balance to their GrabPay wallet or send funds to another account whether through another e-wallet or a linked bank account.

At the same time, users benefit from GrabPay’s zero convenience fees feature. This means that for every cash-in or transfer made, additional fees are not charged, ensuring savings for every GrabPay wallet user.

How to earn GrabRewards (in-app and non-Grab transactions)

GrabPay also offers incentives for using the platform, giving consumers opportunities to enjoy discounts and earn rewards when making transactions. GrabPay is the only e-wallet in the Philippines that gives users points when they make payments using their GrabPay accounts. Points can be earned when using the mobile wallet to pay for Grab transactions such as ride hailing and grocery, food, and parcel deliveries. GrabPay users can also earn points when they shop online or at select retail stores using their wallet.

Points can be used to save on consumers’ total bill via Pay With Points feature where consumers can use their points to pay for Grab services, QR code payments, and online shopping. Points can also be used to redeem vouchers on the GrabRewards catalogue like

  • E-gift certificates from partners like Jollibee and Auntie Anne’s
  • Discounts and vouchers from online stores such as BeautyMNL, Adidas, Pomelo, Nike, Shopee, Lazada, and many more
  • Mobile credits

Jamm Vergel de Dios, 32, a self-proclaimed foodie from Manila, says that using GrabPay has not only served as a convenient platform for her cashless transactions, but she has also been able to maximize her GrabRewards points as well. “It makes payments easier because I can pay in advance, especially when I order food. I can also use my GrabRewards so it helps me save a little too!” she said.

A one-stop-shop for your every want and need

Another GrabPay product is the GrabPay Card, the digital-first prepaid Mastercard that allows Filipinos to purchase from online merchants worldwide for their various needs and wants, such as Adidas, Lazada, and Shopee, among many others.

The GrabPay Card also provides big savings and a more rewarding and fulfilling shopping experience thanks to exclusive discounts and offers from Grab partner-merchants, which users can enjoy just by using their GrabPay Card to shop. GrabayPay Card users can also earn points when they use it for their transactions.

Katarina Guevarra, a BPO employee from Quezon City uses her GrabPay Card when buying essentials and shopping for fashion accessories online. “What I like about the GrabPay Card is that it allows me to buy the things I need from my favorite brands here and abroad. Because of its global acceptance, there is practically no limit to where I can shop,” Guevarra says.
