BillEase, the top buy now, pay later (BNPL) and consumer finance app in the Philippines, and PayMongo, the leading payment processor backed by Y Combinator and Stripe, today announced the launch of their strategic partnership to help retailers drive growth through a transparent card-free BNPL service. Retailers using PayMongo can now offer BillEase as an installment option at checkout, providing consumers a seamless shopping experience.
Through BillEase, online and offline retailers can offer shoppers three installment options at checkout: Pay Later in 10 or 20 days and Pay in 4 installments for small-to-medium ticket purchases, and Pay Monthly over three, six, nine, or 12 months for big purchases with interest rates between 0% or 3.49 percent – the cheapest rate in the country. Retailers can also choose to offer 0 percent annual percentage rate (APR) via PayMongo. For example, a PHP 15,000 purchase would only cost PHP 3,350 over 3 months at 0% APR with only 1/3 upfront payment.
Isabel Ridad, PayMongo’s Acting Chief Executive Officer: “We’re thrilled to partner with BillEase so thousands of businesses using PayMongo can offer consumer credit at checkout and flexible installment plans. Our payment infrastructure, combined with BillEase’s customizable payment plans and transparent consumer credit offering, is a powerful tool for retailers to reach new customers, and increase average order values.”
Georg Steiger, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of BillEase: “Over the past 3 years, BillEase and PayMongo redefined the ecommerce landscape for millions of Filipinos. This strategic partnership underscores our shared values of providing flexible and transparent point-of-sale (POS) financing for retailers and their customers. With PayMongo, BillEase can provide inclusive options for retailers across all sizes and categories, helping them attract new customers and build strong loyalty.”
Unlike other BNPL providers, BillEase is an “on-demand consumer credit app” that shoppers can use online and offline for different types of transactions, from paying for day-to-day needs like food and grocery to discretionary purchases like electronics and furniture. Customers can split payments in easy installments even without a credit or a debit card and do not require topping up an e-wallet account. Shoppers only need to provide 1 valid ID when signing up and get instant credit to complete their purchase at checkout.
Over 1,000+ online and offline retailers using BillEase experience increased conversions and basket sizes. Businesses already offering the BNPL service see a significant increase in sales conversion between 15-25% with average order values increasing up to five times more than sales that are not paid through POS financing. Its revolving credit line provided to customers who sign up also increases the likelihood of re-transaction using the same payment method.
PayMongo offers a quick and fully-online onboarding process and seamless integration with retail websites or apps, which allows them to accept digital payments such as credit and debit cards, online banking, e-wallets, and BNPL with BillEase as the newest addition to the channel. PayMongo is used by over 10,000+ retailers in the Philippines.
September 26, 2022 – BillEase, one of the fastest-growing consumer finance apps in the Philippines, today announced a successful gathering of its top merchants through a masterclass in partnership with MoEngage, a global insights-led customer engagement platform.
As a rapidly growing shop now, pay later platform in the Philippines, BillEase continuously strengthens its relationship with merchants and end consumers. While searching for the ideal customer engagement platform, BillEase also needed a platform that could improve the deliverability of push notifications.
By using MoEngage’s industry-first capabilities like Push Amplification™ Plus, BillEase has improved the deliverability of its messages, increasing engagement amongst merchants and end consumers.
“By associating with MoEngage, we look forward to enhancing our customer engagement strategy and boosting conversions on BillEase. We aim for BillEase merchants to increase their conversions and their customer lifetime value,” said Georg Steiger the CEO and Co-Founder of BillEase.
Saurabh Madan, the Vice President and General Manager of MoEngage Japan, ANZ, and SEA, said the partnership aims to scale greater heights in the Filipino fintech ecosystem: “It is our ultimate goal to assist BillEase in its mission of increasing financial access to Filipinos. With our best-in-class customer engagement platform, we aim to support them in all aspects of customer engagement.”
As part of its fifth-anniversary celebrations, BillEase has collaborated with MoEngage for an exclusive masterclass “How to Engage with Customers to Increase their Lifetime Value” on September 23rd, 2022 at Marquis Events Place, Taguig.
#GROWTH Masterclass by MoEngage was an invite-only event offered by BillEase to its topmost merchants. The attendees received fresh insights on how to leverage customer engagement to create personalized and seamless brand experiences to increase their customer lifetime value.
In a panel discussion hosted by Sirish Krishna Pallevada the Country Manager of MoEngage to the Philippines, Lazada Philippines shared that investing in consumer research plays a vital role in providing a seamless experience to users: “Whatever we learn from our customers, we formulate that into strategy, and whatever message we come up with, we push forward with strategies that are aligned with different teams of the platform,” said Krisel Macatangay, Lazada’s Consumer Relationship Management (CRM) Manager.
PriceLOCQ Philippines meanwhile, shared the importance of making sure that customers have a seamless experience for both online and offline transactions: “It requires close alignment between the teams. More than it just being a marketing aspect, being familiar with your users’ journey is something that affects all the things that contribute to developing and promoting your product,” said Dyane Chua, PriceLOCQ’s Consumer Marketing and Analytics Supervisor.
The event brought together over 30 growth & marketing leadership attendees with a range of topics on engaging customers and driving growth.
For panelist Janme Dhakal Jr., Managing Partner of Sta. Lucia Grocers, one of the key factors in emerging from the unexpected silver lining of the Covid-19 pandemic was knowing their customers and hearing what they have to say: “We had customers who were senior citizens who live alone. It was more of listening to them and identifying what their pain points are and solving them as much as we can.”
BillEase’s Head for Offline Merchants Khristine Subijano shared that tailor-fit solutions for customers are as important as it is for partner merchants: “We look into their typical services that customers are utilizing. Depending on the usage of our customers, we figure out which programs we should highlight. For the merchants’ segment, when we see that there’s low performance in a segment, we try to push more marketing initiatives or collaborations. We do the same thing for segments with potential.”
