You’ll need an NFC-equipped smartphone though
We’ve always wondered why we couldn’t just transfer funds from our many digital wallets to be used in our beep cards. Well, that problem has been solved, at least by one digital wallet. Coins.ph account holders will now be able to load up their beep cards with as little as Php 10, though you’ll need to have an NFC-equipped Android phone to do so.
“Coins.ph provides beepTM cardholders the ability to load their cards anytime, anywhere just by tapping their card on their smartphone. This added convenience means no more falling in line to add load during the busy rush hour.” said Peter Maher, President and CEO of AF Payments Inc.
“Each day, nearly 2 million Filipinos are forced to wait in long lines to top up their beepTM cards with cash,” said Ron Hose, CEO of Coins.ph. “With this collaboration, beepTM cardholders can seamlessly use Coins.ph to load their cards with their phones and make payments anywhere beepTM is accepted. This solution represents a catalytic step forward in a vision that we share with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas of forging an advanced digital economy by 2020.”
