Lapar.com Integrates Their Payment System with KlikBCA
Amir Karimuddin - 14 March 2011
As prepared previously, Lapar.com announced that they’ve integrated payment system for for ever coupon purchase with Bank Central Asia (KlikBCA)’s Internet Banking. That means there’s only one other thing they need to implement to simplify payment transaction, by integrating with Doku (NSIApay) so they can process transaction with credit card. Previously Lapar.com already serves transaction by transfer via BCA and Bank Mandiri and the use of vouchers that can be obtain at certain moments.
To be able to use it, you can follow the steps begin from transaction at Lapar.com according to How to Buy page. If you want to try it out, you can try purchasing something directly from klikBCA menu by: e-Commerce Payment Voucher/Games/Hobbies category Lapar.com, you’ll be informed that ”no transaction available or transaction is out of date”. That means you have to first do some transactions in Lapar.com, you cannot purchase directly through KlikBCA. Various top ups are available from Rp 10.000 up to Rp. 200.000.
According to Firman from Lapar.com, other than this payment system integration, Lapar.com is currently focusing on doing expansions to some cities in Indonesia, Surabaya will be the first one in the near future. Othar than that, Lapar.com also develop further channel, Makanplus, where “pejuang lapar” or hungry warriors (nick name used for Lapar.com’s community) will give tips and review on dining spots, healthy dining tips, and also tips on how to start your restaurant business. MakanPlus looks like a portal itself, discussing everything about food and food related business.
Lapar.com is a targeted daily deals website, only aiming at promotions at dining spots. It has its own advantages because looking at the number of websites on the same subject starting to operate, what we also know as groupon clone, it’ll take quite an effort to differentiate itself from other to be able to survive and be known. When this article is published Lapar.com had sold 14.381 coupons with total savings more than Rp 489 million. Innovation from such daily deals website will be worth the wait, in order to survive in heavy competition.
