With the advent of Information Age and Ecommerce, we can’t just let ourselves be left behind. I’ve read from somewhere that if a business remained “offline” for the next 5 years, there is a chance that it will suffer bankruptcy. To those people who are resisting change; who are afraid to transact online; who are afraid to send and receive money through the internet, please think again. There is a safe way to do it now. There are trusted platforms that we can use online now. These are big companies that will definitely not risk having their names tarnished. We have PayPal now.
I work in an industry where the salary comes from other countries. Since day one that I have been using PayPal, there was only one incident where I got scared of losing my hard-earned money and it was my fault. I was linking my Eon Cyber Account to PayPal and entered a wrong set of numbers. Instead of the account number, I typed the card number. It was my first time to call the customer service of PayPal and was having cold feet for I knew I’d be calling a center in another country. Good thing the guy who attended to me spoke very clearly, kindly and politely. He assured me that the money will go back to my PayPal account and true enough; it did go back after a few days. I also called the customer service of Unionbank about the mistake that I have made and the girl who attended to me gave me clear instructions on how I can correct my mistake in a very polite manner. I was charged by PayPal a small amount for the mistake that I have made, too small for my big mistake. What mattered back then was I was able to get my hard-earned money back. I felt safer more than ever since that experience. Thanks to the partnership of PayPal and Unionbank.
We are now in the digital era, with how things are going, I can tell that PayPal is going to be a necessity like credit cards and ATMs. Lots of people are now selling their goods and services online. Lots of people are now into shopping online. The number of people working at home is increasing. These people transact online. If you are one of them, then it is a must that you attend the second leg of Paypal101 Ecommerce Hands-on Workshop. Don’t get stuck in using money transfer platforms that charge a fortune for the transaction fee. Mark your calendar for the next workshop. It’s on June 18.
