I’ve talked about e-commerce on several occasions and especially on PNG’s first initiative which is the EsiShop.com.pg site. As always the one major issue has been the fact that not allot of PNG’eans have credit cards. The solution for that has been Visa Debit cards, but for a long time this was only available to Westpac clients. With the advent now of BSP’s Visa Debit card a huge uptake may be expected considering BSP’s market share in PNG. And this will represent a true opportunity for more PNG’eans to start interacting with e-commerce sites and hopefully they can start dreaming up their own e-commerce initiatives.
