MANILA, Philippines – In a strategic partnership seen to shape the future of sustainable mobility, Dragonpay, the pioneer in alternative payments in the Philippines, has teamed up with Gogoro Philippines, a trailblazer in revolutionizing electric vehicles. Dragonpay serves as the official payments partner of Gogoro, reinforcing their commitment to streamlining transactions and facilitating the adoption of sustainable transportation solutions.
Gogoro Philippines, a joint venture of Globe’s 917 Ventures Inc., Ayala Corporation and Gogoro Taiwan, aims to address commuter challenges, provide a clean transport option, and deliver a superior riding experience for Filipinos.
“At Gogoro Philippines, our mission is to empower cities with sustainable mobility solutions that are open and accessible. We believe that embracing eco-friendly choices in transportation is a crucial step towards shaping a more sustainable future for the Philippines,” said Bernie Llamzon, President and CEO of Gogoro Philippines.
Gogoro’s Smartscooters® harness the power of Gogoro’s ingenious battery-swapping platform. This innovation allows users to effortlessly swap drained batteries for newly charged ones within seconds, marking a milestone in the electric vehicle (EV) industry.
While traditional forms of transport still dominate in the Philippines, the electric vehicle industry is gaining traction. The government’s proactive stance is exemplified by the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA Law) enacted in 2022, which sets the stage for EV growth leading to a reduction on fossil fuels reliance and offset rising fuel prices.
Robertson Chiang, Founder and CEO of Dragonpay, stated, “This collaboration not only signifies a pivotal step in advancing electric vehicle technology but also emphasizes Dragonpay’s commitment to providing convenience for users through online payments enabling the crucial shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly transportation options.”
This partnership not only positions Dragonpay as a reliable partner in payments but also highlights Gogoro Philippines’ commitment to sustainable transportation. It represents a stride towards a future where convenient, sustainable mobility is not just a vision but a reality.
Using a Gogoro Smartscooter® has been made convenient for customers. Simply visit any Gogoro GoStation, and pay for energy plans through the Gogoro App using GCash or Credit Card, all powered by Dragonpay. Get ready for a world-class payment experience coupled with world class EVs when you ride your first Gogoro.
