beep operator AF Payments Inc. (AFPI) has launched its official Lazada, Shopee, and Facebook Marketplace online stores where commuters can conveniently and safely buy beep stored value cards.
Amid the shortage in cards for sale in various train stations, AFPI remains committed to making everyday transactions easier and safer for Filipinos.
“We have previously reallocated stocks to the rails and continuously work with our partners to address public demand for beep cards. At the same time, we also need to cater to customers who use our payment solution off-rails and, more importantly, address the increasing cases of fraud among unofficial online sellers, thus the launch of our stores in top e-commerce platforms Lazada, Shopee, and Facebook Marketplace,” said Sharon Fong, Chief Commercial Officer of AF Payments Inc.
“We thank the public for understanding and bearing with us as we tirelessly work to resolve the issues surrounding the supply of beep cards and innovate further to find better solutions,” she added.
It must be noted that beep cards sold at rail stations are priced lower as they are subsidized by AFPI and the Philippine Government under a signed concession agreement in 2016. For the beep official online stores, the SRP is P188, plus shipping fees.
Like all other merchandise for sale in these e-commerce platforms, beep cards may also be purchased with discount vouchers as applicable, and offers are good only until supplies last.
Upon receipt of their card, users are encouraged to download the beep app to register their card to be able to easily check balance, monitor transactions, keep track of reward points, and redeem freebies.
