LAZADA wallet no longer available to foreigners???

Recommended Posts

I have been successfully buying from Lazada using my 'Lazada Wallet' from when they introduced it ... easy to use and never had a problem.

 

Today I went to top up my wallet and was required to do a further authentication .. the page provided had two optional headings 'Thai Citizen' or 'Foreigner' .. clicking on the foreigner link brought up the message that the Lazada Wallet is only available to Thai citizens. What? Why? no explanation. There are other ways to pay but ... ?????

 

Lazada on their 'Chat Now' line informs me that the account would need to be verified with the 'Anti-money Laundering Office'. I am a longterm 'visitor' here on retirement extension, the funds I use to top up my Lazada Wallet come from my Bangkok Bank savings account in Thai Baht.  As is so often the case here, Lazada can provide no further details ....................................

Perhaps you didn't use the app version ? Which is where the notice appears.

You can thank the OECD for all these financial rules they are pressurising countries around the world to comply with. All at great expense, time and inconvenience for customers to comply.

And Thailand is even not a member yet in 2018...See attachment situation 2018

 

But on present list they appear on it

list of country's for CRS reporting

Maybe hence more Financial changes to expect in Thailand …:whistling:

Updated list for CRS May2019   ( I do not see Thailand on list as OECD and CRS reporting are not complete same purpose )

http://www.oecd.org/tax/automatic-exchange/crs-implementation-and-assistance/tax-identification-numbers/

 

(By information I found before was mentioned that by 2023 they possible would (consider …) it , on standard request from my E.U. banks 2 years ago I gave them the OECD screenshots and links to check CRS & OECD was not for Thailand possible  , and they replied it is not needed in case Thailand , and that the requests for their foreign addressed customers was send standard to ALL …. (with excuses ) 

 

:wink:

You see some things for sale though and you tend to wonder why so expensive, just looking tonight and theirs a whole shop selling things like fans for 20,000 baht when there worth only 5,000.

I prefer cash on delivery. No hassles. If it doesn't arrive you don't pay, if you change your mind after you ordered you don't pay.

Unless the ordered items are coming from China (overseas)

then you don’t always have the COD option
