The Philippines’ number one lifestyle e-wallet makes booking salon appointments easy and convenient as it partners with Parlon, the go-to platform for beauty and wellness services.
Through this partnership, beauty and wellness enthusiasts can prepay and book their salon and wellness appointments by simply finding Parlon partners in the “services” category of GLife. Over 20 partner establishments currently live in GLife with more salons and beauty clinics expected to come in the future. Consequently, this also allows the salons to have their very own app page within GCash—providing more accessible and convenient venues to sell their services and reach at least 60 million registered GCash users.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Parlon to provide easy and convenient payment solutions for customers from its partner salons. This way, customers can completely enjoy their me-time, knowing that they’ve already booked and paid for their salon appointment beforehand,” said Martha Sazon, President and CEO of GCash.
Global and homegrown salon favorites like Browhaus, Strip, Emphasis Salon, The Smile Bar, Benibana, Azta Urban Salon, O2 Skin Lab, Lay Bare, Vine Aesthetics, Marqed Salon, and The Secret Lounge, are just some of the Parlon partners that are available in GLife.
“The beauty and wellness industry has faced unprecedented challenges for the past two years. In Parlon, our thrust for 2022 is to help our partners accept bookings and payments everywhere. We are honored to have partnered with GCash in playing our part in reviving the economy as we help the country and this beautiful industry bounce back higher,” said Claire Ongcangco, Chief Executive Officer of Parlon.
To get started, users who are inside the GCash app just need to go to the GLife section and find the services category to browse through Parlon’s partner establishments and their respective deals. Once customers have finished selecting deals and services for their carts, they may also choose to book a date for their appointment. Users just need to confirm transactions and the total will be seamlessly charged to their GCash wallet. All these steps are guaranteed to be user-friendly and hassle-free, which is what Parlon and GCash have always been committed to doing.
Aside from having an established presence in GLife, merchants who partner with Parlon are given more digital channels to connect with their customers. Under Parlon, they get to have their own profile and URL where they can showcase their services and pricelist, offer enticing deals, manage bookings, and access other solutions that are all housed at the Merchant Partner Hub in Parlon’s easy-to-use ecosystem.
