NEW City Commercial Center (NCCC) has introduced in the market its Electronic Commerce Payment (ECPay) in a bid to provide convenience to its shoppers during a press launch at Royal Mandaya Hotel on Thursday.
The new e-payment service is in partnership with Electronic Commerce Payment Inc. (Ecpi) and Gate Distribution Enterprise Inc., according to NCCC Department Store president Jennifer Ang.
She said the partnership will bring convenience in bill payment services not only to those who live in the city but especially shoppers from neighboring areas.
ECPay is also available in Davao del Norte, where NCCC opened its newest branch in Kapalong town and in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
ECPay is an accredited facility that receives payment for four telecommunication companies, water and power utilities which is the largest contributor of about 80 percent of their revenues, on-line shopping merchants, credit cards, and airline tickets.
The payment service has 24-hour customer service assistance. Payments are made in cash form.
On the other hand, Gate Distribution Enterprise Inc. is the largest prepaid distributor of cards for phone, gaming, and internet.
The partnership also made available through prepaid products from Gate Distribution for landline and mobile phones loading, prepaid internet, airtime gaming cards, electronic credits for cable TV subscriptions, and mobile e-wallet loading services.
Ecpi president Raymond Jude Aguilar said that through ECPay, they assured the payments made by shoppers are done in secured and timely fashion.
The payment transaction made will pass directly to their system and will be accredited by their merchants.
Gate Enterprise president Miguell Estrella said that their biggest partnership with NCCC in Davao City allowed them to be present not only in the city but also in places where the home-grown shopping center has its branches.
Aguilar said that they are making the ECPay available to all especially to those who have no credit and debit cards.
