KB Kookmin Card offers subscription service platform
The card company hopes to attract more customers using its cards to pay for these subscription-based services.
On the platform dubbed the "K-Bill subscription service," users can find various subscription options offered by partnering vendors. Currently, customers can subscribe to monthly food delivery services offered by Yorivery and Yamtable as well as the monthly pet supply delivery service offered by Monthly Pething and regular book subscription programs offered by Joins Prime.
Available subscription services will be expanded in the future, such as those for regular car check-ups and house supply delivery service.
Customers using the platform can also register their cards for the regular payment of various bills, including phone bills, monthly apartment management bills and electricity bills.
The card company will offer a cash back service -- a reimbursement of maximum 15,000 won ($13) every six months -- depending on how many regular payments consumers make on the platform using KB Kookmin's cards.
The card issuer's new platform can be accessed via the KB Kookmin Card online homepage or mobile application.
