RUSH, the loyalty and e-commerce solutions provider under Globe’s 917Ventures, is waiving transaction fees for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to help keep their businesses afloat following renewed lockdowns in the country.
In line with the company’s promise to provide companies with simplified and accessible digital solutions, new customers who will sign with RUSH by August 31 will be included in Paymongo’s Accelerator Program. They will be eligible for two months of zero transaction fees across all payment channels of PayMongo.
Jeferson Cruz, Chief Commercial Officer at RUSH, said the company continues to work on more ways to assist merchants at these trying times.
“Partnering with top-caliber names in their respective industries provides more value to merchants powered by RUSH. We are delighted to have PayMongo onboard, all together sharing the same vision of supporting SMEs with the assistance that they need to be able to operate despite the challenges brought by the global health crisis,” he said.
PayMongo is a B2B payments facilitator providing products and services that allow businesses of all sizes to receive online payments. The company's standard, easy-to-integrate PayMongo API and e-commerce plugins lower integration time. With PayMongo integrated into RUSH, payment acceptance and disbursement to stores can be done seamlessly.
Luis Sia, PayMongo co-Founder, and Chief Commercial Officer, said the ultimate goal of the payment gateway is to create more solutions for entrepreneurs.
“As the economy moves in favor of e-commerce, we want Filipinos to succeed in doing business online. PayMongo complements RUSH’s thrust to help businesses set up their digital store easily with our simplified payment processing capability, ultimately leveling the playing field of e-commerce,” Sia said.
Since the launch of its e-commerce solution called RUSH eStore, RUSH has made it easy for businesses of all sizes to start their online store. Among its notable clients are Dunkin’ Donuts, Banh Mi Kitchen, WildFlour, and Generika.
“RUSH eStore acts as a springboard for businesses to go online with an end-to-end platform that allows them to run their digital store inventory management, order processing, last-mile delivery, and re-engaging customers. Using RUSH eStore allows our merchant partners to focus on their business while we take care of everything they need to thrive in e-commerce,” Cruz said.
As a comprehensive eCommerce solution that continues to evolve with the market, RUSH has partnered with different enablers to ensure that businesses get the optimum results and return on investment. Earlier, it joined hands with Grab’s GrabExpress service for on-demand delivery and GCash’s GLife for brand discovery and awareness.
