Last month, we wrote an article about Daraz bringing eSewa payment options to its platform. Founded in 2012 by Muneeb Maayr & Farees Shah, this online platform has been integrating more and more facilities to improve customer experience and seller accessibility ever since its early days of establishment in Nepal. Seeing as to how online shopping and eCommerce have exploded in popularity recently, Daraz has been quite active in providing more and more remote payment options to its customers in this time of the pandemic. Partnering with Visa to power online payments in Nepal, this is another big step for this leading online shopping store in this goal.
Visa Payments: Get exclusive discounts using your Visa card
It is no secret that the Daraz team promotes online banking and online payments. There are various discounts and cashbacks that you can take advantage of by using online payment methods such as debit cards from any of its partner banks.
However, for a limited time, customers who use Visa Payments can secure upto 15% discount on any of Daraz’s 450,000 products. Standing till September 30 2020, customers can save upto Rs. 500 using prepayment through Visa cards, Debit cards or any other Prepaid cards issued in Nepal.
“A collective effort is necessary in order to drive the development of the online card payment ecosystem in Nepal, and so, we are thrilled to collaborate with Visa,” boasts Lino Ahlering, MD at Daraz Nepal. “With this initial offer, we want to provide our customers [with] an added benefit for choosing the already more convenient and safe method of making online payments.”
Online payments in Nepal: No longer a second-option but a necessary one
Digital payments and online shopping have become crucial in recent times, given the current need for social distancing. The demand for online shopping is growing rapidly in Nepal, and the rate of adoption for online payments is growing in a steady manner as well.
The use of a secure and safe payment medium, as provided by Visa in this context, can go a long way to provide shoppers with a sense of convenience and security while shopping through online portals like Daraz.
