Online food delivery platform foodpanda has partnered with the country’s largest mobile financial services provider, bKash, in an effort to make cashless payments even quicker, easier and more accessible, said a press release.
Foodpanda users can use bKash on the foodpanda platform by adding their bKash account details to their list of saved payment methods.
So far, over 85 per cent of foodpanda users have preferred the cash-on-delivery method.
Users choosing bKash payment will also be able to enjoy exclusive offers in the coming days.
During the month of May, foodpanda users can obtain a discount of 40 per cent or up to Tk 70 on a minimum order of Tk 100 by using the code FPBKASH70 on restaurants.
On pandamart, customers will receive a 5 per cent discount, up to Tk 50, on a minimum order value of Tk 500 by using the code FPBKASH50.
Ambareen Reza, managing director and co-founder of foodpanda Bangladesh, said, ‘We enabled digital payment on foodpanda years back, and now we are introducing bKash payment to ensure that a broader customer base is able to enjoy the convenience of cashless payment. I believe having bKash as a payment partner will further improve accessibility and convenience for our customers.’
Mizanur Rashid, chief commercial officer of bKash said, ‘As there is no health risk of handling cash, now users can order their favorite food or necessary goods more securely and easily for themselves and their loved ones while staying at home amid this pandemic.’
