Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, the leading independent oil company in the Philippines, now offers contactless payment options at its gas stations to ensure safer transactions, the company announced.
The first to offer four e-payment options in the oil industry in the country, a total of 100 Phoenix gas stations in the main island of Luzon is now accepting payment via Alipay, GCash, GrabPay, and WeChat Pay through QR code scanning. The move comes as part of the company’s safety protocols across its businesses to address the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Phoenix has always been an advocate of safe and secure service. While we continue to provide quality products to our customers, we are also very serious in our rally towards stopping the spread of COVID-19. We already made most of our employees work from home to avoid exposure to the virus. This time, we want to further ensure the safety of our customers by offering contactless transactions that could help flatten the curve,” said Phoenix Petroleum President and COO Henry Albert Fadullon.
The company also plans to launch this new contactless mode of payment at its stations in the Visayas and Mindanao islands this month.
Earlier, Phoenix introduced its own fuel delivery service for small and medium businesses to provide a more convenient option during the nationwide community lockdown due to Covid-19. The company is also currently offering “Bangon Tsuper,” a special rewards program for public utility drivers who need assistance while waiting for the eventual re-opening of mass transportation, which has been placed on hold since mid-March.
