Customers of Rose Pharmacy now have a new payment option whenever they need to pay for medicines and other retail items in-store as the Cebu-based drugstore chain begins accepting cashless payments in collaboration with PLDT Enterprise and PayMaya.
Initially, 130 branches of Rose Pharmacy around the country will have PayMaya QR as a payment option, with more stores to come in the coming months. This will allow customers to transact in-store using only their mobile phones with the PayMaya app installed.
Similarly, select Rose Pharmacy branches and Rose Pharmacy’s online delivery service (www.rosepharmacy.com) are now also capable of accepting VISA and Mastercard payments similarly powered by PayMaya Business.
“Improving our in-store customer experience is a top priority for Rose Pharmacy, and this partnership with PLDT and PayMaya contributes to our commitment to bring our customers the benefits and advantages of new technologies. Now, our customers will have wider, faster and very secure payment option at their disposal. Choosing to pay by card or using the mobile generated QR code has never been easier at Rose Pharmacy.” said Charlie Bettencourt, CEO at Rose Pharmacy.
One of the Philippines’ top pharmaceutical retailers, Rose Pharmacy was established in Cebu City in 1952 and now caters to everyone with more than 250 branches all across the country providing high-quality and affordable products to customers.
“The retail landscape here and abroad is changing very fast, which is why we laud retailers like Rose Pharmacy in their efforts to keep up with these changes in service of their customers. PayMaya’s cashless solutions will definitely bring in a more delightful and convenient experience to their customers nationwide,” added Orlando B. Vea, President and CEO at PayMaya Philippines.

We look forward to working closely with them as they take on this digital transformation journey toward the future,” said PLDT and Smart Chief Revenue Officer & ePLDT President and CEO Eric R. Alberto.
