Online shopping made everyone’s lives easier. For many, it also helped them get through during pandemic as their form of outlet. Aside from the usual modes of payment (bank deposit, credit card, and cash on delivery), Lazada offered another service that made everyone’s lives easier, at least when it comes to payment.
Through the Lazada Loan program, the online shopping giant partnered with several fin-tech companies to offer the Buy Now, Pay Later or BNPL scheme.
Aimed towards unbanked Filipinos who don’t have access to credit card, BNPL allows consumers to pay for their purchased items on installment basis.
So far, Lazada partnered with eight merchants, including its latest partner: Cashalo.
