Lazada’s top 2 modes of payment- A Review

modes of payment

It doesn’t really matter how much a person wants a piece of item if he or she does not have enough money to buy it. Promos and discounts are the next best thing to look for when in a tight budget. If you would rather spare yourself from getting frustrated looking at merchandises that you yourself know from the gecko you can afford, visit stores that are known for having discounts on a regular basis to save you a few pesos. But ultimately, what finalizes a purchase is the actual payment. If the customer is unable to comply with the obligatory methods of payment, at the end of the session, no purchase will be made or accomplished completely. It’s easy to find websites that sell items that appeal to you but what’s hard is identifying a website that fits your preference of payment. I personally always end up in foreign websites and only realize it after I have browsed through the site’s entire collection. Only then do I realize the additional fees I would have to pay for besides the delivery fee because of immigration and others.

Websites similar to Lazada that has different branches all over Southeast Asia, provide products in peso currency making it a lot easier for customers to match their budget with the price tag of the item of their choice. Lazada Philippines being the official website of the Philippines’ online shopping mall, as it would refer to itself, sells items particularly those products that Filipinos rage about. Most of the items are guaranteed to be necessities.

The methods this website use are cash on delivery (COD) and credit card payments. Two of the most used mode of payments today. These two are just similar to the normal payments used in malls. Cash on delivery is similar to paying over the counter only this one in particular is a lot more convenient. The delivery men serve as the cashier. They go to your house to deliver your goods and hopefully by that time, you’ll be at home to pay for your order. After the delivery, usually performed by either LBC or 2GO, you will be asked to submit your payment. If you’re opting to go for the safe bet where you don’t have to stay at home personally to give out cash to the delivery man, credit card is the way to go. Both Visa and MasterCard cardholders are allowed to make purchases. Just simply provide the information being asked from you as you go along the order form online. Right now, there is a seal that comes along with selected items. A seal called Lazada Promise where one is entitled to P500 worth of gift certificate if your order was not released from the warehouse within the amount of time given prior to the delivery. A follow-up delivery will be made to deliver the gift certificates if you are entitled to one.

There are other ways to complete transactions that are made online. It is important to read ahead about a company’s payments method to know from the start if you’re even permitted to buy.

The real benefit of Lazada Philippines’ delivery method- A Review

real benefit

I love how the generation today has it easy. Most especially if you compare it to how things used to work before. You can tell this with the existence of online shopping. Some people don’t see just how much our era has progressed because some things are seen as normal when in fact, if you base it on the past, things have definitely improved. Online shopping is given so little recognition when now that you try to assess things, the world revolves around the internet and the benefits that come along with it. I don’t think people have really grasped the extent of the evolution that has taken place in the past few years. Convenience has been redefined as something people just take for granted than something they can be thankful for. Let me give you a simple overview on just how advance we are now.

It’s simple and basic to some but it didn’t really exist before. Shopping online is a gift. And the delivery that comes along with it, a perk. I bought a blackberry from Lazada PH because I didn’t have the free time then to visit the mall. If before, I didn’t have the option to get it delivered to my place making it essential for me drop by the mall to get something I liked, now I could get it shipped anywhere I wanted. Provinces before were not as privileged as those living in the big city before that they had to ask someone living in Manila to get what they wanted delivered to their place. It was a grueling process. Now, I can just go online and submit a form to get it shipped to me directly regardless of where I live. I would happily spare a few bucks to compensate for the hassle of having to drive to the nearest mall which meant having to dress up when I could just order in my pajamas.

 

Lazada’s delivery methods are an example to this theory. I call it a theory because I have no legitimate basis but my own assessment. They have three distinct delivery methods: Cash on delivery, Credit Card and 7-eleven. You can choose from three options upon submission of your order. Cash on delivery is actual payment only upon delivery. No down payment required pre-delivery unlike what online stores on Facebook would ask for. Credit card can be used by any VISA or MasterCard holders. 7-eleven refers to selected convenient stores where you’re given a reference number to take note and submit to the cashier upon payment. 7-eleven is the only option that requires a customer to pick up his or her order. One also has to pick it up at the same branch they paid at. Cash on delivery and credit card allows the customer to have their orders directly delivered to them. Certain fees are mandatory if the total amount of purchase is below P 1,000. 00. For purchases under a thousand, P55.00 and P99.00 are added to the order’s total amount when residing within metro manila and outside respectively. These options didn’t exist before but now that majority of online shops offer these, it has been deemed normal.

 

Lazada Philippines’ impact on ecommerce – A Review

ecommerce2

 Ecommerce has become surprisingly popular and popular in a span of one year. Long ago on a normal day, a typical Filipino will pass by the mall during his or her free time to look around in malls. Now, ever since the internet became accessible in households, Filipinos are on their phones tweeting where they are, instagraming what they are eating and going to internet shops to kill time. Unexpectedly, our generation has come up with a way to merge two of the favorite past times of Filipino.

 

Have you ever heard of online shopping? You may not know exactly what it’s about but you probably have come across this word once or twice in your lifetime. Online shopping i a form of ecommerce where a person buys or sells through the internet using their computers, cellphones and tablets. Any form of transaction made using electronics is a form of ecommerce. Filipinos have gotten used to this manner of transactions which is why ecommerce is booming now more than ever.

 

Lazada Philippines is an online shopping website owned by Rocket Internet, an online venture buider by the Samwer brothers. It is a German company that has website ventures all over the world in 5 continents. It sells multiple products that can cater one’s beauty needs to a family’s Silverware for the holidays. Its impact has made such a huge difference to Filipino culture because a lot has changed over the years thanks to the power and the convenience online shopping has given us. It has become a regular online destination because of their selections, methods of payments and services. I have been buying online for quite a while now so I have a pretty good overview of what good websites are. Lazada surely tops my list of online shopping websites because of the quality of the entirety the site brings to the table. I have a diverse taste in the stuff I buy. I live alone so I basically buy everything myself. I buy my own television, air conditioning, clothes, shoes and beauty products. Because of this, I always prefer online shopping to make it a lot less hassle for me. I especially hate having to fit big appliances in my car which makes me prefer online shopping over it all. With online shopping, I can get everything I buy, big or small, delivered to my house for free if the price amounts to their terms. It’s also nice to know that in sites like Lazada, I can pay any way I want. If a oerson buys over the counter, they are limited to paying only using cash or credit card. With online shopping, there are more options to choose from depending on what is most convenient to a person. A person who relies on credit can always make use of their MasterCard or Visa cards. If you like paying in establishments that are most familiar to you, you can pay and deposit in your personal banks. But if you prefer having to pay in person and only when you get your package delivered, cash on delivery is the better option for you.

 

Ecommerce is a great opportunity for both buyers and sellers to take advantage of the internet. It’s really important to make use of what we have now so we can surf the wave and be part of the progress of our country.
