This is literally a YAY for us especially for those people are TRYING (emphasis on the trying) not to use their credit cards.
The country’s biggest online shopping mall, Lazada, is officially the only e-Commerce company in the Philippines accredited by MegaLink, a major ATM Network in the country.
Purchasing goods at www.lazada.com.ph is now made easier as the recently signed partnership introduces a first in local e-Commerce. It allows online shoppers all over the country to conveniently choose a payment option most convenient to him/her, adding MegaLink to Lazada’s proven and flexible existing methods: Cash On Delivery, Credit Card, Installments and PayPal.
CEO and Co-founder Inanc Balci states, “We, at Lazada, want to continuously improve the shopping experience for our customers. MegaLink payment option will make shopping at Lazada more convenient. Customer satisfaction is our top priority.”
Lazada will shoulder all service charges making this feature a very enticing option to the millions of Filipinos bearing cards within the MegaLink network.
Currently, the service allows the following banks within MegaLink: Unionbank of the Philippines, United Coconut Planters Bank, Cooperative Rural Bank of Bulacan, MASS-SPECC Cooperative Development Center and Pacific Ace savings Bank, with plans to grow more participation among other banks before the end of the year.
Through this new payment method, customers can pay for their orders using their MegaLink ATM and Cash cards.
