What are people saying about GoTyme Bank’s human helpers?
The bank promises not to leave you hanging when you need help

We all have traumatic experiences from dealing with customer service reps. Each of us has our own stories about queueing for hours on end over the phone only for the call to be cut short and having to go through automated menus all over again.

And just how frustrating are some of these ordeals? I asked my teammates to weigh in.

Saab shares that sometimes queues are so long that she even has the phone hold music or marketing spiels memorized by the time her call gets picked up.

Meanwhile, Marj says the worst part is having your messages replied to by unhelpful bots.

“I was checking out my cart on an e-commerce site using my online debit card to pay for it. The payment failed but the money was deducted from my mobile wallet. It wasn’t a small amount so I panicked and tried all ways to reach out to the mobile wallet platform – Facebook, X, email, hotline, in-app chat support – but all I got were chatbots. Chatbots everywhere! It’s an endless loop of answering their bot-powered Q&As only to be served a spread of their FAQs each time – and none of it would answer my question. By the end of each frustrating session, the chatbot still had the audacity to ask if it was helpful. A big 👎,” she shared.

Or finding out there isn’t sufficient customer support to begin with, which is something that happened to me recently. After seeing my card charged with a subscription renewal I didn’t authorize, it took me long hours of sleuthing over the internet for answers as the company in question didn’t have customer support in the Philippines.

The solution? I found a customer support rep in Singapore who led me to more FAQs and chatbots until I eventually was led to another customer service representative who also spent hours figuring out what we could do to cancel my subscription.

It was a hot mess!

And how common these stories are is one of the reasons why digital bank GoTyme is investing heavily in its customer support services. One of the taglines they have been pushing this year is to “Say hello to helpful humans.”

First, it only takes less than five minutes to open an account with GoTyme Bank as there are over 900 bank ambassadors ready to help in the various GoTyme Bank kiosks across the country. No more waiting in line for hours to open an account! You also get a free Visa card on the spot, whereas traditional banks can take several business days to deliver a card to your address.

Concerned customers also get access to personal bankers, which means they get assigned an agent who will take care of their needs when they get in touch through GoTyme’s various communication channels.

In fact, GoTyme Bank has made a “123 Go Human Promise” to make it easier for customers.

This means that users will get:

  • One human to talk to for all channels, whichever channel you prefer! No chatbots and no call menus at all.
  • Two minutes to answer in-app chat, two minutes to pick up the hotline, and two hours to respond via email or social media.
  • Three easy ways to reach them: chat through the GoTyme Bank app or social media channels, call, or send them an email.

What’s more is that if you lose your card, getting a replacement is fast and easy. First, you can lock your card through the GoTyme app and approach a kiosk to get one reprinted right away!

But don’t just take it from me. Take it from these happy customers who shared their experiences with GoTyme’s superb customer service reps:

Kudos sa fast and reliable customer service, GoTyme Bank!!
Quick story lang po.
Last monday, I lost my phone together with the sim I used to register to Gotyme
An hour after it was lost I reached out to their CS via#GO8888 hotline and walang isang minuto ako naghintay sa queue, I was attended to, kaagad!
Had to freeze any bank transactions that will happen in the future until marecover ko ang phone number ko and pumayag naman sila.
Had a hard time recovering my number at one globe branch, kahapon kaya nagpunta ako sa kabilang branch today and vola! Recovered my sim around 2pm today. Dali dali ko muna tinransfer sa other bank na alam kong safe ung funds ko just to be secured. While I was on my way home, tumawag ang hotline ni gotyme agad agad and yung mismong CS na nakausap ko, (shout out po, Ms Riri! Di mo ko iniwan sa case ko all throughout! Sana lahat ng CS kagaya mo ( ) to confirm if the transaction were made by me.
Ngayon, mas panatag a po akong gamitin ang gotyme ko kasi alam kong nasa mabuting kamay ako. #GoTymeLangMalakas!
Kudos sa Customer Service nivo! Wag po kayong magbabago!
Dati, I have to spend 600 pesos to earn 1 point pero dzaiii, they gave me more than the expected! Here's a story on how. #APersonalBankerHelped.
The day before my flight back to Isabela w.., I checked in using my GoRewards from the GoTyme Bank App. I only anticipated to receive 9.2 but hey, three-digit points?
Pero... 6 days after the flight, hindi pa nag a-appear sa app yung points. E kahit 1 or 2 points lang, I value them. Until I remembered to call #468888. Ning, wala pang 1 minute, may sumagot agad na Personal Banker! -this is one of the best features of GOTyme, the GoHuman and their immediate responsiveness.
Unlike other Digi banks or let's say e-wallet, antagal na nga ng waiting time, holding time, na may sigaw sigaw pa ("sabihin mo phising scam yannn!" na masakit sa eardrums.), and customer service na ulitin yung mga sinabi mo pero siyempre may mahabang script pa na tutulungan ka, GoTyme Personal Bankers are different. They listen to address the concern immediate and effectively.
So there, after our conversation. the Personal Banker assured the point to be credited.
Few days after, I checked my GoTyme Bank App, and hey, 104points? OMG! * It's like we've spent 62k na sa other merchants. Convertible to cash a pala siya (pandagdag ko sa pambili ng Airplane model next flight -na sobrang nasayangan ako dahil kung ang dala kong cash huhu)
Wow na wow talaga! Ang galante ni GoTyme at Cebu Pacific Air.
So next time na mag fly kavo, use Golyme Bank Visa Card then if mav issues, Personal Bankers are always there to assist with kindness.

Na-shookt ako sa Help Center ng GoTyme

Todo english pa naman ako, but very Filipino customer service nila sobrang friendly pa! Mas madali makipag-communicate. Nasanay akong t'wing magre-raise ng inquiry/concern from other banks - laging through ticketing system pero ang refreshing ng idea na p'wede mo pala maka-chat ang CSR nila ng hindi nagnonosebleed. & Really the best customer service pag GoTyme
