As an online buyer and seller, I know the pros and cons of online transactions. Hence, I was elated when LBC introduced their Cash On Pick-Up (COP) and Cash On Delivery (COD) services. Why? Because there’s now an answer to my major concerns/dilemmas whenever I shop and sell online.
The formal launch was held at New World Makati attended by LBC officials, online partners, media and bloggers.
My Experience as an Online Shopper
Just a little background, my online shopping experience started when Keisha was born. Since I can’t go out of the house to shop, I found comfort in shopping for Keisha’s clothes and other belongings online. It was so fun that I get to buy imported goods from US like shoes, apparels, toys, feeding bottles and even organic snacks, and have it delivered at my doorstep without worrying for taxes and other fees. Then, I encountered a seller from Mindanao who took away my Three Thousand Pesos (P3,000.00). I was in disbelief that I was scammed. From then on, I started to be very cautious with my online purchases.
However, that incident didn’t stop me from shopping online because it’s really very convenient. It saves me time and energy to go to malls and shop for more. Plus, it’s so traffic, why would I risk going out when I can have what I want with just few clicks. But, with all of the advantages, there are also disadvantages of online shopping like possibility of being scammed, receiving low quality products (you surely know how deceiving photos can be), wrong size and so much more.
My Experience as an Online Seller
As an online seller for the past 3-4 years, I must say that the process is not a walk in the park. Because, first, I have to deal with my buyer’s whims and requests plus I always consider their convenience over mine. Typical example of the slight struggle I face as a seller would be the customer’s choice of mode of payment. There are buyers who opt to pay on the nearest establishment in their area. However, on my part, I prefer to receive payment thru bank deposit because it’s hard to collect payment from different establishments. Another concern that I have is that, it’s hard to find a reliable courier service that can deliver on time. Good thing, I learned about LBC. I’ve tried their service and I experienced first hand how fast and reliable they are. With them, my package is surely delivered to my customer in 1 -2 days even to those who reside in remote areas. They also notify me via text stating that my package was already received.

I would like to commend the LBC – Robinsons Metro East Branch, as their staff are very helpful, easy to deal with, and they provide fast service to their customers.
LBC Introduces Cash On Pick-Up (COP) and Cash On Delivery (COD) Services
Here’s good news for all of us who love transacting online, LBC recently launched their newest services – Cash On Pick-Up (COP) and Cash On Delivery (COD), to meet client’s e-commerce demands.
These services utilize two of LBC’s core services:
- as a courier of parcels and boxes
- as a payment collection channel
Cash on Pickup (COP)
LBC’s Cash on Pickup guarantees convenient and seamless transactions between seller and buyer since they’ll act as a trading place for the buy and sell transaction.
Here’s how it works:
The buyer will add LBC as a pick up point, instead of having it delivered at home, office, or meet ups. Payment will be made upon pick up. With this, the buyer is assured that he’ll get the products in mint condition.
This is highly recommended to those who do not want to disclose their home or office address for security purposes. And, also to those living in remote areas that are not accessible by courier services.
On the part of the seller, the online transaction is guaranteed safe and reliable as he or she will be paid. The said payment will then be deposited by LBC to the seller’s bank account.
Cash On Delivery (COD)
LBC’s Cash on Delivery service answers the fear of buyers to pay ahead of time without receiving the products yet. Hence, you are assured that fraudulent transactions won’t happen. With this, buyers will pay upon delivery of the goods. This will save them time going to the bank or other money remittance center to deposit payment and the best part, this will give them assurance that they get the product they’ll pay for in good condition.
On the part of the seller, LBC will directly remit the payment to their desired bank account or they can just go to any LBC branch and receive their payment.
