Learn About a More Secure Way to Do Your Online Christmas Shopping

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Our lifestyle continues to change as many life-changing conveniences are quickly emerging and becoming so easy to use. Many people are now becoming more comfortable buying stuff online especially using their portable and handy smartphones. The Internet had indeed opened so many opportunities for other technologies to sprung up and be noticed.

Right now, mobile apps are in the verge of ruling the e-commerce world, if not yet considered as claimed and conquered. A lot of start-ups have made a name for themselves with primarily the online community to thank for. Of course, there's so many potential to become a lot bigger, and more financially rewarding.

Take for instance online shopping. It was noted that a 39% increase was established compared to last year’s second quarter based from an infographic released by Realex. This only goes to show that online transactions are still on the rise and will continue to increase in a quarterly basis.

But is it really safe and secure already to deal with online transactions? Though there may be a few scams going around trying to dissuade people to trust online deals, there are so many initiatives and efforts to make our online dealings better than physically being there. This is very helpful now that the Christmas season is so very near, and many of us would like to escape the crowded shopping malls when buying for our season gifts.

Shoppers all over the Philippines can now have a more secure online transaction with the Lamido Safepay – the escrow service of Lamido that allows consumers to avoid fraudulent transactions on the internet.

Lamido has ensured that online transactions are more secure with its effort to launch the Lamido Safepay. It is expected that in the coming months, Lamido Safepay will be the most preferred payment option by most merchant in the Lamido’s online buy and sell platform.

The Lamido App for our smartphones can be downloaded in Google Play from this link:

Many are now going to Lamido Philippines as their chosen online shopping website that provides a buy and sell platform that provides merchants and consumers an online marketplace where they can conduct easy and safe transactions. The advertising in Lamido is totally free and gives the sellers an options to post their products either by fixed, discounted or auctioned prices. This is probably because Lamido Philippines embodies in it the very same culture that made Rocket Internet one of the biggest names in the online marketing business.

The Lamido buy and sell website was very user-friendly and not as cluttered as other online shopping websites. I appreciate the requirement to create an account so that registered shoppers can be easily identified. The availability of categories allows you to quickly jump to the products of your choice. The many preview of products with corresponding prices were very helpful as well. They also have a "Deal" category so you could take advantage of special promotional offers.

Payments for online bought products are released on a weekly basis based on the shipped items by the sellers. Lamido holds the payment until the conditions for release are met. The payment deposits are directly made to an official bank accounts of Lamido. The merchant prompts Lamido for shipped orders and upon submitting shipped out order list, Lamido is notified of transactions completed, triggering a go signal to release payment to the merchant also via bank transfer.

It is more unlikely that fraudulent selling and purchases will take place with these escrow service guidelines in place. This assures both the buyer and seller more peace of mind with their online transactions.

Online transactions are now more secure with the Lamido Safepay. It will eventually be the most preferred payment option by most merchant in the Lamido’s online buy and sell platform. A great news is that there is no requirement to signup needed for Lamido Safepay, and that the service is free for all online shoppers.

In line with the Online revolution happening on November 11, Lamido Philippines  is giving away great discounts and giveaways. Starting last November 1, Lamido Philippines is are giving away FREE cellphone and will last until the launch of Lamido On The Rise - a one-day sale. 

Lamido Philippines
have gathered 5 charities to sell their items in the Lamido site for fund raising purposes. Participating charities include, World Vision, Habitat PH, Virlanie, Tahanan Sta. Luisa and Green Peace.  Lamido is shouldering all shipping cause for all items purchased in the website. In addition,  proceeds from the sales will be given 100% to the respective charities.  Free marketing is also offered for this campaign.  The campaign will go live starting on Friday, November 7 until December 29.

So I'm guessing that many of you will now be visiting the Lamido Philippines website. I am also planning to buy a few items from the website soon. I'm seeing plenty of choices to choose from and this will surely be a great story to tell my friends and relatives that I bought their wonderful gifts from an online shopping portal.

I will probably tell you more about my online shopping experience as soon as I get my products so be sure to get back here for more updates.

  1. This is a nice article. This how we 'shoppers' could avoid crimes and secure our way of buying through internet. This article is a solution for those who doesn't have an idea of what crime may happen if they don't have security on buying through net. So this article is a big help for me.
