PLDT Global Corporation (PLDT Global) has reinforced its e-commerce foothold by forging a partnership with South Korea’s Powercall Co., Ltd. (Powercall), the developer of the KMall e-commerce app.
Through Powercall’s KMall e-commerce app, customers would now be able to purchase Smart, TNT, and Sun electronic load products with just a few taps on their smartphones. The app would also provide Filipinos in South Korea more familiar, convenient, and secure payment methods, such as debit card payments and inter-bank fund transfers through mobile apps, online banking, and local automated teller machines (ATMs).
“Through this partnership, Filipinos could expect a more convenient and efficient way of purchasing e-load and paying for utility bills in the Philippines via the KMall app,” said Joel Lumanlan, vice president and Global Marketing Operations Head for PLDT Global. “Since most Filipinos in South Korea do not have credit cards, KMall gives them alternative payment methods to improve their online purchasing experience,” added Lumanlan.
With its extensive network of resellers, Powercall is also the biggest distributor of prepaid call cards to the Filipino market in South Korea.
The partnership with Powercall is just one of PLDT Global’s thrusts to further strengthen its consumer solutions and empower Filipinos everywhere. As the international business unit of the PLDT Group, PLDT Global builds and delivers a full range of digital innovations that serve the evolving needs of the global Filipino.
