Tokopedia as the largest e-commerce company in Indonesia continues to develop its business and ambition to achieve its mission in encouraging the economy equity through digital development. Tokopedia, which has previously worked with Nugraha Ekakurir Line (JNE) as a freight forwarder, now both companies continue to commit itself to development and innovation. On Monday (16/11) JNE established a strategic cooperation with Tokopedia e-commerce.
Initially, JNE is a partner of Tokopedia in delivering merchant delivery solutions to buyers. Furthermore, this cooperation developed in the form of payment services, and the recently agreed, namely JNE-Tokopedia Payment.
This collaboration is also the first collaboration between JNE and e-commerce in the form of payment channels. The signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreement was officially carried out at JNE Head Office, in Tomang, West Jakarta, Monday (16/11).
Every buyer who shopped at Tokopedia merchants can make payments at more than 200 JNE Representative Offices throughout Indonesia. To make a payment through JNE-Tokopedia Payment, after having finished shopping at Tokopedia, customers can directly select the point of the JNE Representative Office already registered in Tokopedia. Furthermore, the customer can directly make a payment at that location.
After the official launch, from 17 to 31 October there will be a free admin fee promotion for 50,000 transactions that make Tokopedia payments at JNE representative offices throughout Indonesia. After the promo period is up, the administration will be charged Rp 2,000.
“In providing service to customers, JNE not only prioritizes speed, accuracy and security for customer shipments, but we also strive to provide value-added services that can provide convenience and satisfy all customer needs,” said President Director JNE M Feriadi.
Meanwhile, William Tanuwijaya, as co-founder and CEO of Tokopedia welcomed this cooperation.
“With the extensive JNE network throughout Indonesia, this partnership will enable Indonesians not only to use JNE as a freight forwarding solution, but also as a payment channel, especially to Indonesians who do not have a bank account yet. This is in line with Tokopedia’s mission in encouraging the digital distribution of the economy. ”
William also added the benefits of this cooperation for Tokopedia customers who do not have a bank account or credit card. Nevertheless, according to the World Bank’s Global Findex Database, only 36 percent of adults in Indonesia in 2014 owned bank accounts.
“Currently there are still many people who do not have a bank account or credit card. If you want to shop online, of course they have difficulties in payment transactions. Well, with this service they can keep shopping online in Tokopedia and pay through the nearest JNE outlet, “said Wiliam.
Feriadi said JNE’s expectation of services and activities initiated by JNE is not only able to support the development of SMEs in the country but also contribute in improving the Indonesian economy.
