Easy and full of perks: Convenience of online shopping
When it comes to these commercial applications, one can either pay for their parcels via cash or the much more suitable ShopeePay for Shopee or LazWallet for Lazada. While the conventional “Cash on Delivery” is the norm pre-Pandemic, netizens are now keen on paying via e-commerce or online cash (with apps like GCash or Paymaya). Evidently, Shopee released another alternative payment that gives buyers a sense of convenience with a more affordable approach. SPayLater is a payment method that lets you buy now, and pay later in intervals. It almost serves as an online home credit purchase. There are also multiple installment rates with SPayLater. Just when you thought you had an online wallet, apparently the e-commerce line of convenience also spans out with you having an online credit card. The best part about the said payment method is the easy application and fast approval. An underlining feature these online apps have is their ability to show you items that cater to you based on items you scrolled prior. These are often titled “preferred” items in Shopee and other online shopping platforms.
The idea is, the more you buy, the more you’re given coins or “cashback” to give you more budget on your next buy. It quite literally lives up to its name, as these “coins” are indeed like coins you find in your pocket. You may not know it’s there, but it will surely help you with your future purchases. Another app that brings easy access and convenience is SM Malls Online, an app developed by SM that offers free shipping for orders amounting to 500 pesos or more. While the app functions like the usual e-commerce platform, SM Malls Online administers the same sales happening on physical branches to the app. The future is digital, so they say. Scrolling through these apps almost feels like a normal day outside, except it’s in the palm of your hands, and all you need to do is scan, scroll, checkout, and have your items delivered to you. Quick and easy. Now that’s convenience.
