MANILA, Philippines—When you’re out to shop for fun or to replenish your daily necessities like groceries and toiletries, you automatically think of withdrawing cash. But to be able to do this, there are four things that you have to consider. One is the proximity of an automated teller machine (ATM); two is the long queue of people who are withdrawing cash; three is whether the ATM is working or out of service, and four and most importantly is your safety after you have withdrawn your money.
See, for people who are tired from a day’s work, and even for those who are out to relax on a weekend, these factors are undeniably time-consuming and quite a hassle. But the thing is, you can always make purchases without cash as long as you have a debit card. And BDO, for one, offers ATM Debit Cards that entail convenience and safety.
So how is it convenient and safe to shop using a BDO ATM Debit Card? Here are three scenarios:
When shopping in malls for example, you can go straight to your favorite-to-raid clothing store or preferred restaurant to dine in even without cash because you can make cashless point-of-sale payments using the BDO ATM Debit Card.
Simply present your BDO ATM Debit Card to the cashier and key in your pin in the POS machine, and you’re good to go.
While online, you can shop as much as you want (or until you have funds in your account) in your favorite online stores even if you don’t have a credit card because the BDO ATM Debit Card also works for online payments.* Just look for MasterCard or Visa logo depending on what brand you carry.
And when abroad, you will not have to worry about locating money changer stalls because the BDO ATM Debit Card is accepted in over 40 million establishments worldwide,* meaning you can still rely on your debit card for cashless transactions even when you’re out of the country.
And if you prefer to still have cash while travelling, you can also withdraw in ATMs abroad using the BDO ATM Debit Card.
With the BDO ATM Debit Card, there’s no need for you to bring cash when shopping. All you will need is your debit card, and then you’re good to go. It’s convenient and definitely safer than carrying cash. Just debit!
