UCPB was recognized by VISA for obtaining the Highest Debit eCommerce Payment Volume Growth in 2018. This is the second year for UCPB to obtain the recognition from VISA after launching a UCPB VISA Debit EMV Card in 2016.
The award was presented by VISA Business Development Head Dan Wolbert and Country Manager for VISA Philippines Stu Tomlinson (1st and 5th from left) to UCPB AVP2/Product Management and Sales Department Head Erica C. Diago, VP/Marketing Group Head Charina C. de la Cruz-Balanquit and AVP/Product Manager Iris Veronica G. Lim (2nd, 3rd and 4th from left) during the VISA Annual Awards held on November 28, 2018 at the Manila Polo Club.
“We owe this award to our VISA Debit cardholders, particularly those who belong to the millennial segment. This represents their daily purchases and payments. We see a continuing increase in card usage as e-payments continue to gain traction in the country with the popularity of online shopping sites, Grab and other Apps which provide unprecedented convenience to our customers. We will continue to enhance our VISA card offering in 2019. We’ll soon launch our VISA payWave card that will enable faster payments using RFID technology. We will also have more promos to encourage card usage and we will continue to use technology to further enhance its security features,” Ms. Balanquit said.
Aside from VISA online merchants, UCPB VISA Debit EMV Card is also accepted globally in POS-enabled establishments like groceries, supermarkets, department stores, restaurants and gas stations. UCPB clients can also withdraw cash anytime, anywhere in over two million ATMs worldwide.
