This year Medicinos bankas rapidly develops cooperation with companies
providing services of online payments for goods and services and also offers
its clients especially favourable conditions for the use of these services.
In Lithuania, according to research, in 2011 more than one-fifth (21,3 %) of the
Internet users ordered goods and services online. People, saving time and
money, purchase a bus or a plane ticket online, order a television or a computer
from an online store, order pizza, pay utility fees and pay for other services.
„For Medicinos bankas clients who use services of online stores, transactions via
Medicinos bankas account are for free“, – says Vaida Stamburaitė, Director of
Business development department of Medicinos bankas.
There are about 70 % of residents in Lithuania using the Internet and online
payments for goods and services become more popular in virtual space. The most
important trend - an increase of the Internet users among older people and
residents of small towns and rural areas.
According to V. Stamburaitė, the bank‘s cooperation with online stores and
companies of online services already gets a favourable evaluation from customers,
this is the reason why this activity is expanded. Currently, the bank‘s IT programmes
are combined with new partners – two mobile network companies. After testing
works are completed, the bank‘s clients already this month will be able to fill SIM
card accounts without any extra bank fees.
The goal of Medicinos bankas – to expand payment options to its clients, e.g.
provide with a range of services in order the client would be able easily and safely
to pay for various goods and purchases online.
