The GCash and Friendster Partnership

Yes, you heard it right. Globe GCash and Friendster are partnering to provide online money transfer. I read about it in the newspapers a couple of days ago, I think.

According to the news:

GXI and Friendster introduces the online money transfer feature to provide a more convenient and reliable way of transferring GCASH within Friendster. For a minimal amount of Php2.50 per transaction, a Friendster member can already send GCASH to anyone in his friends list by simply viewing the profile of the intended recipient and clicking the GCASH button after specifying the amount involved.

To ensure the security and authenticity of the funds transfer, a confirmation request is forwarded to the sender’s Globe or TM SIM then GCASH is transferred as simple as a text message.

For the GCCASH service, you can go to any GLOBE business center and apply for one.
