It’s fascinating to see how much online shopping has grown in the Philippines, from eBay to the now-defunct Multiply, to the rise of mom-and-pop online stores and international retailers that ship to the Philippines (finally!). With added competition among retailers comes the advent of the deal site, where savvy consumers can browse through discounted high-end vacations, clothes, new experiences, and gadgets. However, these deals are time-sensitive and some folks miss out on these kickass discounts because these usually require a credit card to pay. Not everyone is comfortable with paying online, with some even opting to pay in cash at payment centers even if they have credit cards. Enter Maybank’s Maybank Secure Online Shopping (MSOS).
The Maybank Secure Online Shopping (MSOS) is intuitive to use and a free service for all Maybank credit cardholders. At the shopping website’s checkout page, you enter your credit card details as usual. Next, you’re taken to an authentication page where you need to enter your One-Time Password (OTP) to complete the transaction. The OTP is sent to your registered mobile phone number within 3-45 seconds and is valid for only 5 minutes. Enter the correct OTP within the allowed time frame and your shopping cart pushes through. It’s that simple! The hardest part in all this is probably waiting for your goodies to arrive 😛 Aside from providing a secure online shopping experience, Maybank is also partnering with online merchants for exclusive deals in the days to come, so keep an eye out for those.
Existing Maybank credit cardholders that already receive SMS alerts are automatically enrolled in this new service. If you need to update your contact information or enroll a supplementary card, please call Maybank’s 24/7 Customer Service Hotline at +632-5883888 or PLDT Domestic Toll Free number at 1-800-10-588-3888.
