Electronic payment service Bizmoto has launched a mobile micro-business in the Philippines – Bizmoto Delivers, with 15 drivers active in the regional Philippines.
‘BizmoGo’ drivers are encouraged to use their own micro business ideas on the service and to deliver products such as rice, water, and LPG tanks.
Payments made through the micro businesses will accredit a commission fee to Bizmoto and the parent company Peppermint Innovation Limited.
Peppermint Innovation CEO Chris Kain says the new platform is the logical next step to using the existing payment platform.
“It provides an exciting opportunity for a Filipino person to build a micro business for themselves based on our multi-functional Bizmoto mobile app technology platform,” Chris Kain said.
“A BizmoGo rider will be able to purchase and insure a motorcycle with the help of Peppermint and then use that motorcycle as an asset in their business to earn a minimum wage, while at the same time making payments back to the Company via the mobile wallet that sits in the Bizmoto app,” Kain said.
Bizmoto allows for users to electronically transfer money to other users, like popular platform PayPal, but to also pay bills such as water, electricity and cellphone.
Qualified BizmoGo riders are provided access to finance and insurance for purchasing their motorcycle for delivery.
The program officially launched on April 5 in the Cavite province.
Bizmoto has also partnered with global automobile trader FZCO to supply motorcycles, motorcycle parts and warranty to drivers.
Nearly 12,000 Filipinos are currently registered with Bizmoto to date.
