What domestic payment methods do KorGou’s assisted purchase/payment service support?
KorGou, which owns the settlement accounts of several major banks in Korea, supports payment methods such as bank transfers, credit cards (non-normal CHECK CARD or debit cards) , which can meet the collection requirements of almost all Korean websites or recipients.
However, if discount events on individual websites can only be enjoyed using a particular credit card company’s credit card, they are generally not available for the following reasons:
• Generally such discounts are promoted for new or smaller credit card companies, and in most cases KorGou does not have a corresponding credit card for credit card companies.
• Most credit card-based discount activities (e.g. 10% of the premium for using Lotte Card) have a maximum quota or a frequency limit (e.g. a maximum monthly limit of 30000 KRW or up to twice), so even KorGou cannot enjoy the discount even if it happens to have the corresponding payment method.
