On January 14, 2019, Black Arrow Express announced its two-way partnership with Dragonpay. The former is a last mile and consumer delivery firm under total logistics provider AAI while the latter is an online payment platform that allows consumers to conveniently pay for the service in-app.
“This partnership brings two strong players and two key drivers in the eCommerce industry together, Dragonpay, with their expertise in the local financial technology space, and Black Arrow Express, with our logistics legacy through our parent company, the AAI group,” Black Arrow Express president Allan Brizuela stated. “We are committed to further empowering individuals and SMEs, after recently completing over 15 million COD shipments over the last 2 years.”
Brizuela said that Black Arrow Express is continuing the improvement of its services by providing a more convenient way to the consumers making payments inclusive for all segments accessible, simple and fast. He added, “We want to empower the unbanked by expanding our payment methods that will tailor fit everyone.”
The two-way partnership focuses on Dragonpay as another payment option of Black Arrow Express and Black Arrow Express as the express logistics and cash on delivery partner of Dragonpay. This recognizes COD and express door-to-door service as the next logical evolution to their service offering.
“We are looking forward to adding Black Arrow Express as one of the COD payment options of our merchants,” Dragonpay COO Robertson Chiang said. “This is a great opportunity for Dragonpay merchants to expand their business and market reach since COD is still the most preferred payment method in the Philippines, accounting for over 80 percent of total eCommerce payments.”
Founded in 2016, Black Arrow Express is currently available in the Philippines. The company is currently in talks with various industries in the country and to other Southeast Asian economies to help improve delivery experience, loyalty, payments and customer support.
