You can now withdraw cash at 7-Eleven ATMs

No nearby banks in the area? No problem! There’s now an ATM machine in at least 320 7-Eleven stores in Metro Manila and Cavite where you can deposit and withdraw cash.

This convenience is made possible by Philippine Seven Corporation (PSC), the exclusive licensor of 7-Eleven in
the Philippines, in partnership with Pito AxM Platform, Inc. (PAPI), a Philippine subsidiary of Seven Bank, Ltd. of
Japan (Seven Bank).

The ATMs in 7-Eleven, operated by PAPI, are cash-recycling ATMs, which means customers can withdraw or deposit cash in real-time with any of its partner banks. Customers can now withdraw cash while the deposit functionality of the ATMs will be activated in the near future. The ATMs also have a unique feature of adapting the customer interface screen to that of the partner bank and thus providing a familiar, easy-to-use interface for users.

BDO Unibank account holders can withdraw cash and perform balance inquiries free of charge from the ATMs in 7-Eleven stores. Other bank account holders, through BANCNET, can also do withdrawal and balance inquiry transactions subject to ATM fees charged by their banks. PAPI plans to expand the number of partner banks in the near future to allow more convenient and cost-efficient banking services to more customers.

Beginning first week of March, customers can already conduct their bank transactions in more than thirty (30) 7-Eleven stores in NCR. PAPI and PSC aim to install ATMs in at least 320 stores by the end of the first half of

  1. This number will gradually increase throughout the year, with the end goal of covering the majority of 7-
    Eleven stores in the future.

Seven Bank, which operates more than 25,000 ATMs in Japan, established PAPI in April 2019 to promote its ATM business in the country. In February 2020, PAPI struck a business alliance with PSC, intending to install, operate, and maintain ATMs at 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines.

PSC operates the largest convenience store network in the country. It has 2,978 stores in the Philippines as of December 31, 2020.

Shopee launches biggest 12.12 Christmas Sale yet

At the launch of its annual 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, Shopee celebrates its five years of digital acceleration in the region with more groundbreaking initiatives that will benefit millions of customers.

Some of the key highlights of this year’s 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, which will happen from November 18 to December 12, are the following:

Key trends for e-commerce in 2021

“Shopee was born with the vision of making online shopping accessible, easy, and enjoyable. We built Shopee from the ground up, listening to people’s specific needs in each of our markets and turning our understanding into well-executed localized strategies that make Shopee what it is today. This year’s 12.12 Big Christmas Sale has added significance as we celebrate our fifth birthday and come together with our brand partners, sellers, and shoppers to support one another through a challenging year. As we look back on our journey, we are proud to have adapted quickly to serve the needs of our local communities,” says Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines.

He also highlights the three key trends that will continue to power the growth of e-commerce in 2021 and beyond.

  1. Social: Bringing the human touch to online shopping

Advancements in technology, coupled with changing shopper habits, have resulted in online shopping evolving from a transactional experience. Today’s users are more social than ever, and they demand a more engaging online shopping experience with rich and unique content. In 2016, Shopee was one of the first e-commerce platforms in the region to launch a live chat function, Shopee Live Chat, enabling direct conversations between buyers and sellers. Today, an average of 30 million messages are exchanged daily on Shopee Live Chat.

Through the years, Shopee has continuously improved on and introduced new in-app engagement features such as Shopee Games, Shopee Feed, and Shopee Live to make the online shopping experience more social. Shopee anticipates that this trend will stay, with e-commerce increasingly becoming a platform through which people can connect and enjoy shared experiences. Shopee will continue to drive this trend through unique initiatives like Shopee Mom’s Club, which provides like-minded consumers with one-stop exclusive access to baby product deals and parenting content. There’s also a Book Club for a new generation of digital readers in Vietnam and a “Pawrents” club to meet the growing online demand for pet products in Singapore.

  1. Personalization: Catering to the ‘Me’ economy

Personalization is critical in e-commerce today. A highly personalized experience makes online shopping more efficient, enjoyable, and unique for consumers, while also helping brands and sellers drive traffic and growth. Shopee takes a hyper-localized approach by running seven different apps in each of its markets and localizing in-app features. Shopee also continually refines its recommendation engines to offer more customized and relevant shopping suggestions to fit consumers’ needs. 

For brands and sellers, offering personalized recommendations to shoppers helps increase overall awareness and conversions. Businesses that use Shopee’s in-app advertisements generate 65% more sales activity than those that do not. This is powered by Shopee’s own AI capabilities, which ensure that advertisements are delivered to the right users.

As the industry progresses further into the ‘me’ economy, businesses need to innovate in order to improve the online customer journey. In the coming year, Shopee also expects to see the rise of smart shoppers, a new demographic of young, tech-savvy individuals who expect a highly personalized online shopping experience.

  1. Integration: Creating a seamless customer journey

As retailers adapt to the new normal, they must deliver a seamless customer journey across all touchpoints. Shopee helps brands and sellers of all sizes by providing fundamental operational support through integrated payments and logistics, while creating innovative experiences that value-add to the overall customer journey.

  • Delivering an experiential home shopping experience with P&G: Together with P&G, Shopee introduced its first-ever experiential online Show Me My Home initiative, which allowed shoppers to discover and shop for P&G’s popular household items in a simulated household environment. This brought greater convenience for stay-at-home consumers, while mimicking the offline experience of walking in a store. 

“2020 has been a transformative year. It has shown us the importance of technology and its ability to not only connect people and meet their basic needs, but also to entertain and engage. We are just at the beginning of our digital journey and looking ahead, we believe e-commerce will have an even more profound impact on businesses and consumers, creating new ways of living, working, and engaging. As we wrap up the year with the 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, let’s continue to look out for one another, uplift those in need, and welcome the new year on a high note,” Yu closed.

Home Credit Card now offers 1% rebate on every purchase

With the current pandemic affecting the country, it pays to have a financial partner that you can count on in times of need. Whether it’s for groceries, household appliances, and other necessities, shopping is made easier and more affordable with your new and improved Home Credit Card.

This new diskarte partner lets cardholders shop at their favorite online and physical stores and earn 1% rebate for every purchase. Higher rebates are also offered at select partner stores, and it’s even possible to convert bigger purchases to a 6-month installment plan with lower interest rate.

Another new benefit of the Home Credit Card is that new purchases won’t be charged of any interest for up to 45 days if bill is paid in full, while monthly membership fees can be waived as long as a minimum of two credit card transactions are made within the month.

In terms of convenience, the Home Credit Card does not disappoint. By linking it to the My Home Credit app, checking of credit card balance, transactions or monthly billing statement can be done anytime, anywhere—making it easier to keep track of expenses and budget.

Payments are also made convenient through the Home Credit website and online payment partners like GCash, BDO and RCBC online banking. For over-the-counter payments, customers can pay through Palawan Express, USSC, ECashpay and Touchpay.

QR payments with Home Credit Card App

The Home Credit Card also features a quick response or QR payment feature, which was recently launched following the Philippines’ growing demand for contactless and cardless payments—a first of its kind in the country.

Through this new feature, Home Credit Card cardholders no longer need to make physical contact and bring their cards or wallets when paying for their purchases. By updating the My Home Credit App to its latest version, cardholders will be able to scan QR codes to pay for their purchases in any AUB PayMate partner stores nationwide—providing a safer, more convenient, and secure payment option for those who prefer contactless transactions.

“We made sure to include features in the credit card that would encourage contactless payments, such as the QR feature,” said David Minol, CEO of Home Credit Philippines. “It’s safe to use due to its QR feature and even more convenient because of the mobile app.”

Over a year ago, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) gave Home Credit Philippines (HCPH) the green light to operate as a credit card issuer, making it the first non-bank institution in the country to issue credit cards. (Read: Home Credit gets BSP green light to issue credit cards).

Home Credit cardholders can enjoy its new features starting August 1, 2020. For more information about your new diskarte partner, visit the Home Credit website.
