This innovative payment technology enables Smart and Sun postpaid subscribers to use their phones not only for SMS, calls and browsing services, but also to pay for small-ticket items.  Because it is linked to the postpaid account, one’s mobile number may be used for online transactions. Designed to fit the back of one’s mobile phone device, C2P effectively transforms the mobile phone into a credit card or wallet. 

Top-level executives from PLDT and Smart, Citi, and Visa try out the C2P at the McDonald’s booth during the launch event.
