Lazada, the Philippines’ online shopping mall, expands its product portfolio with the country’s leading provider of advanced communications and multimedia services, PLDT HOME, by forging a partnership to make PLDT 2-in-1 Prepaid available to its shoppers.
PLDT’s 2-in-1 Prepaid service is a wireless SIM-based service that allows users to make and receive calls wherever they are in their predefined Home Zone as well as have access to 3G Broadband Internet.
For as low as P150, subscribers get 250 minutes of local calls for 15 days (or P300 with 600 minutes of local calls for 30 days) and P5 per 15 minutes of 3G Internet access for easier connection and communication to friends and loved ones Because it is prepaid, there are no documentary requirements to subscribe and no monthly bills to worry about. And with more than one million PLDT LOAD and SMART E-Load stations nationwide, reloading is easy and convenient.
Lazada shoppers can now purchase PLDT 2-in-1 Prepaid SIMs and Load cards online and enjoy the Lazada shopping experience with nationwide cash-on-delivery transactions, free nationwide shipping, and a 30-day free return policy.
Patrick Tang, PLDT vice president and head of HOME Voice solutions, noted Lazada’s strong following in both the urban and rural areas as a key factor in the development of the partnership.
“PLDT has always been an important part of the Filipino home,” he said. “With PLDT 2-in-1 Prepaid and the online partnership with Lazada, we are now able to reach more Filipino homes, including the rural areas, and offer a practical and convenient voice and Internet service.”
Inanc Balci, Lazada Philippines co-founder and chief executive officer, added, “We want to break geographical boundaries and make our products more accessible to consumers wherever they are in the 7,107 islands of the Philippines.” PLDT 2-in1 Prepaid SIM cards and load cards can be purchased by logging on to www.lazada.com.ph.
