Fiber broadband company Converge ICT has partnered with self-service payment kiosk operator BTI Payments to provide its customers with more payment options.
With the tie-up, Converge ICT customers can now pay their bills in more than 500 self-service “Pay & Go” payment kiosks, with a number of them operating 24/7.
Unlike other payment kiosks in the market, there will be no “convenience fee” that will be charged to customers. Converge ICT chief operating officer Jesus Romero said the company will shoulder the cost of accepting the payments through the self-service kiosks.
Last year, Converge ICT rolled out the country’s first 400Gbps backbone to augment existing domestic network capacity.
“As we grow our presence in the Philippines, we are turning to credible and capable partners who will help us deliver the kind of customer experience we promise. In terms of bills payment, Pay & Go has the expertise and nationwide presence that complement our goal of delivering that seamless experience,” said Dennis Uy, Converge ICT president and CEO, in a statement.
BTI Payments country head Dan Ibarra said its growing portfolio of kiosks is located nationwide and are strictly maintained to avoid any downtime.
“We want to seamlessly integrate it into the fast-paced lifestyles of customers, making payments without a hassle – whether you are in the office, supermarket, pharmacy, mall or at home. As our service is real time, anytime – we ensure Converge transactions through Pay & Go will be no different from doing it at their stores or business offices,” he said.
BTI payments is a wholly owned subsidiary of BankTech, a provider of ATM and payment technology in Australia and Asia for the past 25 years.
