  1. Yay!! Parang ako mas prefer ko talaga ang digital payment since nagka pandemic. Bukod sa hassle-free ang pagbayad through online , mas safe pa. Dahil walang perang involve. Maiiwasan ang pagkalat ng virus kapag digital payment. Kaya kapag umoorder ako sa shopee ngayon through shopee pay na lang. May free shipping fee pa kapag shopee pay at may pa cash back pa sa shope back kung shopee pay gamit mo.. 😊❤️
