MAKATI, Philippines:Today everyone is immersed in a digitally connected world. Times have gone when people spend time moving from shop to shop looking out their needs. Today everything happen with the movement of fingers, E-commerce has gained momentum with mobile shopping. Sitting at the ease of home anything across the globe reaches the door steps of one’s home, as online transaction is possible.Only Business establishments with merchant account can accept credit and debit card transactions online, which creates a gap between business tycoons and start-ups, SME’s.This situation hinders most businesses from fully maximizing their sales potential in the field of e-commerce where credit cards remain one of the most preferred payment methods for online shopping among Filipino Millennials.
A merchant account is neededfor thebusiness bank account, which enables businesses to accept credit and debit card transactions online. Unfortunately, getting such an account is no small deal. In addition to a security deposit of ₱500,000, majority of banks require merchants to have at least one year of profitable business operation in order to be eligible. On top of that, merchant account holders must also maintain a monthly minimum sales volume of ₱150,000 to keep the account active.
“Large-scale enterprises have no problem adhering to these requirements, but how about new entrants to e-commerce? With a limited capital at hand and less than a year in operations, these businesses will ultimately be left out of the e-commerce scene without a proper solution,” said AsiaPay Philippines Associate Director Mau San Andres.
