The thing is, online sellers are mostly rely on maybank2U. To make payment to supplier, to receive payment from buyer, and to pay a bills. And the "root" of successful online business is not only good product, but fast action. Meaning, buyer can make payment immediately, seller can receive payment on the spot, and within the same day, seller can arrange the delivery. Its about fast payment fast received. The competition in online business is tight. Product is nothing. It's almost similar and identical - u browse from one seller to another, u realize that the product is actually the same. The only different is the service provided; the smoothness of payment, the option of payment, and the fast delivery.
Be in online business for quite some time, i can say that 70% of the customer have and choose maybank as a payment method. 30% will choose cimb. In a weird situation, i encounter a customer that request to make payment using ASB account and western union. O__O but its a rare case so its not included in the statistic. (We are talking about local buyer here). Out from 70% of customers who choose maybank, 80% of it have maybank account and able to make direct transfer. 20% of the rest doesn't have the account, but they still choose maybank instead of cimb. Why? Because it is more convenience - near to their office, near to house, available in town, etc..
