RP lagging behind
other Asian countries in e-commerce

By Jennifer A. Ng

THE Philippines has already been left behind by its Asian neighbors in electronic commerce (e-commerce) activity, mainly due to the high cost of putting up an e-commerce web site, according to a study conducted by government think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), the think tank office of NEDA.

The PIDS study conducted by Dr. Gloria Pasadilla and April Lacson said this lack of local online retailers is compounded by the apparent aversion among Filipino consumers to use e-commerce.

“Ever since the dot-com boom, the Internet has been said to be a great equalizer as it provides more access to information and income generation opportunities. Unfortunately, it has failed. Still many Filipinos, with only 25 percent of an Internet population of 11 million being able to buy products and services online, and most of these from e-retailers based in the United States,” the study noted.

The rest, according to the authors, are wallowing in not being able to do e-commerce as they do not have credit cards or do not trust credit cards, and are limited to bank-to-bank transfers, cash on deliveries, mobile cash, or just plain hand-over-the-cash-to-the-cashier.

“Most Filipinos cannot make payments online when they want to buy a product from any web site here and abroad. Many would also like to tap the opportunities to be able to sell products and accept payments online, but are unable to do so because of the high cost of putting up an e-commerce web site,” said the PIDS study.

For the Philippines to achieve its vision of becoming Asia’s knowledge center and e-services hub, Pasadilla and Lacson said it should improve the access to telecommunications infrastructure of the large majority of the population and, at the same time, fill the gaps in legal and regulatory framework.

The PIDS study pointed out that the capacity and knowledge of domestic small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to effectively use e-commerce is still underdeveloped.

So ... how do we go about filling up this gap?

As you have told me, Filipinos in the Philippines can already use Paypal?  Unsa man pod ang mga requirements, I wonder? 

I think another thing that makes it more difficult for Filipinos to integrate e-commerce in their day-to-day activities, is the difficulty in getting a credit card account?  Wala pa man tingali pod Debit card sa Pinas?  In other countries, the credit card companies ang mangulitawo sa mga tawo to sign up with them.  Sa Pinas, kulang na lang, mga dungganan ra nga mga tawo ang welcomed by the credit card companies!   >:(

I really hope that enough time and resources will be poured to keep our country abreast of the times, more particularly, in the field of internet and e-commerce!

Getting a credit card in the Philippines is like climbing Mt. Everest.
Kinahasolan. NBI. Police Clearance. BIR. Postal I.D. Company I.D.
Water Bill. Electricity Bill. Letter with your address on it and
authenticated Stamp. Payslip, yes, Payslip. Wa na ko kahibalo
kung banks need my Transcript of Records, Barangay Clearance,
Medical Certificate, Press I.D., High School Report Card, and the
latest record kung kanus-a ko nangihi. :) I just gave up and forgot
about it.

Galen, sa Thailand bisag kinsa makakuha ug debit card. Only Thai citizens and foreigners with huge amount of money in banks can get a post-paid credit cards. But a debit card is more than enough. At least sa debit card ma-control imo spending activity.

Bitaw, nakatungas naman ko sa Mt. Apo sa Davao, pero mas sayon pa mokatkat sa Mount Apo kay sa mokuha ug credit card sa ato.

Pero hisabtan ko ang mga bangko. Kay daghan pud sa ato nga kung tingil na gani sa utang, mao pay masuko kay gitinglan.

Diri sa Thailand nabiktima ko ug Filipino nga taga-Bukidnon, but that's another story... I will give more details in the Blog section. Soon.

Same case in singapore, for PR (permanent residents) "daw" they need to have SGD30,000/yr to get credit cards then maybe more for an ordinary foreign workers. no idea for debit cards...

pero ang importante, spend wisely! ;D
