Lazada offers offline payment services in 7-Eleven stores

KUALA LUMPUR: Leading online store Lazada Malaysia is offering customers offline payment services in stores nationwide through its partnership with 7-Eleven Malaysia Sdn Bhd, and its strategic partner and technology provider for in-store payment services, MOLPay Malaysia.

CEO Hans-Peter Ressel said this would allow payment flexibility for customers through offline transactions.

“Some customers prefer cash on delivery, some online transaction while other customers like to pick up their items at the stores.

“We cater our services to different types of customers,” he told reporters after launching the over-the-counter payment solutions yesterday.

The partnership is a strategic fit leveraging on 7-Eleven’s and MOLPay’s individual strengths, and Lazada viewed this as an alternative payment option for online shoppers.

7-Eleven is the number one convenience store chain in the country with more than 2,150 stores, serving more than 900,000 customers every day.

CEO Gary Brown said there was a tremendous increase in Lazada customer’s payment in 7-Eleven stores as customers preferred to hand out their cash and receive their items.

“Hence, 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
