Insufficient options for e-commerce development in Florida

Florida, Jan. 5 – In the municipality of Florida there are almost no options for the electronic payment of products and services, in contrast with the increase in the number of workers who receive their salaries in magnetic cards, as part of the current process of bankarization, aimed at reducing the use of cash, due to the insufficient availability of paper money in the country’s financial institutions.

In view of this contingency, the local government should reinforce the requirement for more economic actors to comply with the obligation of enabling payment channels for the development of electronic commerce, and facilitate the purchase of products and services to the population without depending only on cash, which is difficult to withdraw in the only two ATMs located in this district.

In recent administrative meetings to analyze the progress of banking penetration in Florida, it was noted with concern that only one percent of the self-employed workers in the territory contracted the services for the implementation of electronic payment channels with the Transfermovil application.

Similarly, MSMEs and Local Development Projects, which today have a high presence in the commercial activity of the municipality, do not offer their many customers the option of paying for products and services through digital platforms and electronic means, to the detriment of the state’s priority and the country’s need to advance in current banking process.
