“Through this service, DANA merchant partners can still serve consumers and accept orders made through the DANA digital wallet application. This feature connects users with their favorite merchants via WhatsApp instant messaging service,” Vincent said.

Furthermore, users can directly order goods or food and beverage menus from merchants and make payments using DANA QRIS (QR Code Indonesia Standard issued by DANA). The merchant will send the order directly to the customer’s address.

During the Pandemic, DANA also Facilitated Medical Personnel

DANA digital wallet collaborates with the Habitat for Humanity Foundation to provide facilities to medical personnel who are completing the spread of the coronavirus. DANA CEO & Co-Founder Vincent Iswara said, DANA as a digital platform seeks to provide convenience to the public in the transaction, including donations.

He added, his party would maximize digital services in order to provide assistance to related parties, so that the community could channel their donations through the DANA platform. Vincent said, in the collaboration DANA has a role to accommodate community donations, so that later the Habitat for Humanity Foundation will manage the donations.

With the pandemic, DANA focused on targeting SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) as well as the medical staff. According to Vincent, SMEs are economic assets that need to be channeled.

Therefore, DANA has targeted which parties will receive assistance from community donations. However, Vincent said at this time it would focus on medical staff first.
