ikman.lk, Sri Lanka’s largest marketplace announced a tie-up recently with Cargills Bank, once again offering greater convenience for it’s customers.
The tie-up will enable ikman.lk customers who require making listing fee payments, (prior to the advertisement activated on the site) to be able to do so using the Cargills Cash facility at any of the Cargills Food City outlets located islandwide.
Elaborating on the tie-up Sanjaya Hettiarachchi, Product Owner, ikman.lk said, “We are happy to partner Cargills Bank and facilitate greater convenience for listing fee payments through Cargills Food City Supermarket outlets for all our customers. Cargills Bank’s islandwide presence through Cargills Supermarkets provides unparalleled convenience to our customers.”
Whether you want to buy, sell or rent almost anything, look for any kind of service or job vacancy ikman.lk has an easy to access interface with multiple categories to chose from. ikman.lk has earned a reputation as the best platform to buy and sell both used and new items. It’s as easy as Snap, Chat, Sell.
Posting an advertisement on a few categories on ikman.lk such as cars and vehicles, house and property and jobs require listing fees. Customers who need to process listing fees, and also ikman.lk customers who need to process their subscription fees for Memberships, can remit their payments at any Cargills Food City outlets, with ease and convenience, similar to paying one’s utility bills.
ikman.lk customers who lists advertisements on the site on categories which require listing fees, receive an e-mail notification stating payment details and options for payment. Each notification also carries a short code number. By presenting this code at any checkout cashier at Cargills Food City outlets islandwide, payments can be made with an assurance of it being credited to the Cargills Bank account number provided in the notification.
Ikman.lk’s 24-hour customer support is notified of payment immediately and the customer’s advertisement goes live on the site within 15 minutes. This is an ideal solution for ikman.lk customers who don’t have the means of settling payments online.
The payment facility using Cargills Cash at any Cargills Food City outlet is in addition to ikman.lk’s list of other payment methods. All online and electronic payment methods previously used remain readily available for ikman.lk customers, such as Visa or Master Card credit cards issued by banks or via over 200 ‘Pay & Go Kiosks’ located countrywide.
An ikman.lk courier is also available within Colombo city limits, where an ikman.lk agent collects the payment from your doorstep and hands it over to the ikman.lk office.
Commenting on the tie-up, Buddhika Perera, Head of Retail, Cargills Bank said, “We are a firm believer in financial inclusion for all Sri Lankans. The tie-up with ikman.lk allowing convenient payments through Cargills Cash at any Cargills Food City underlines this belief. Through the Cargills Cash Savings Account we are extending our touch points where customers do not require making an additional trip to the bank to deposit or withdraw cash.”
