PLDT Global seals partnership with South Korea’s Powercall

August 17, 2019

PLDT Global Corp. has reinforced its e-commerce foothold by forging a partnership with South Korea’s Powercall Co. Ltd., the developer of the KMall e-commerce app.

Through the KMall e-commerce app, subscribers will now be able to purchase Smart, TNT and Sun electronic load products with just a couple of taps on their smartphones. The app will also provide Filipinos in South Korea a more familiar, convenient and secure payment method, such as debit card payments and interbank fund transfers through mobile apps, online banking and local automated teller machines (ATMs).

“Through this partnership, Filipinos can expect a more convenient and efficient way of purchasing e-load and paying for utility bills in the Philippines via the KMall app,” says Joel Lumanlan, vice president and global marketing operations head for PLDT Global.

“Since most Filipinos in South Korea do not have credit cards, KMall gives them alternative payment methods to improve their online purchasing experience,” he adds..

With its extensive network of resellers, Powercall is also the biggest distributor of prepaid call cards to the Filipino market in South Korea.

This is just one of PLDT Global’s thrusts to further strengthen its consumer solutions and empower Filipinos everywhere. As the international business unit of the PLDT Group, PLDT Global builds and delivers a full range of digital innovations that serve the evolving needs of the global Filipino.
