Online Duty Free Shop will Start Operations on the End of December
Manila, Philippines — Something big is happening by the end of December 2018! Duty Free Philippines Online will finally be launched. Duty Free just signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) last Wednesday together with Speed Regalo. Speed Regalo is the first official online shopping service provider for Duty Free Philippines.
By the end of December, customers who haven’t arrived in the country yet can place their orders online. They will then pick-up their orders at the Duty Free (official website) near to their airport. Only customers who have traveled abroad can buy from their online shop according to DFPC Deputy General Manager for Operations, Bernardine Belmonte. Customers won’t go through a verification process while ordering online but in person when they pick up their items while a Customs Officer is present.
They’re also looking to offer delivery option once things are up and running. Belmonte also added that it took a year to iron out the details about the online shop. He also hopes that the delivery option will be available in the first quarter of 2019. If you’re ordering online, you can pay through major credit cards, Bancnet debit cards, PayPal, Alipay, and WeChat.
Speed Regalo General Manager JC Medina stated that the next in line is to make the Duty Free mobile app. Belmonte said that there were three suppliers who applied for the e-commerce project. Out of the three, he insisted that Speed Regalo is the best choice.
This is in terms of “best in terms of financial offer”. They were also able to provide the best model for the e-commerce platform bid.
This online shopping feature is a great surprise for customers because it will let them shop for their pasalubongs effortlessly. It’s equally important for those who don’t want to go around the Duty Free mall anymore and just want to pick up items and go straight home.
