Lazada offers offline payment services at 7-Eleven
KUALA LUMPUR: Online store Lazada Malaysia is offering customers offline payment services in stores nationwide through its partnership with 7-Eleven Malaysia Sdn Bhd and MOLPay Malaysia.
Chief executive officer HansPeter Ressel said this allowed customers more flexibility.
“Some customers prefer cash on delivery, some prefer online transactions, while others like to pick up their items in stores.
“We cater our services to serve different types of customers,” he said after launching the over-thecounter payment solution here yesterday.
“The partnership is a strategic fit, leveraging 7-Eleven and MOLPay’s individual strengths.
“Lazada views this as an alternative payment option for online shoppers.
“Through this collaboration, we enable Malaysians to shop for over 12 million items available on our website, combined with the familiarity of paying over-thecounter at any 7-Eleven store nationwide,” said Ressel.
7-Eleven is the number one convenience store chain in the country, with more than 2,150 outlets, serving more than 900,000 customers every day.
Chief executive officer Gary Brown said there was a tremendous increase in payments at 7Eleven stores by Lazada customers as they preferred to hand out cash and receive their items.
“We believe that it is important for us to keep up with the hottest trends, as well as introduce new products and services that would garner further attraction and leave a positive impact on our customers,” said Brown. Bernama
