JAKARTA – The National Board of Zakat (BAZNAS) continues to innovate to provide simplicity and convenience for people who will fulfill the obligation to pay zakat in a wider range.

Director of BAZNAS, M Arifin Purwakananta said the coverage of the zakat payment service facility reaches almost all areas in Indonesia because it involves a number of e-commerce institutions.

"Through e-commerce institutions, people in any area in Indonesia and even abroad can easily carry out the obligation to pay zakat online," he said on Monday (19/06).

According to him, there are at least 6 leading e-commerce companies in Indonesia that partner with BAZNAS to assist their customers in performing their obligations to pay zakat.

The said e-commerce are Tokopedia.com, Blibli.com, Elevania.com, Kaskus.co.id, MatahariMall.com, and Ebaba.co.id which already has pretty much customers.

He explained that with the availability of digital zakat services conducted by the 6 e-commerce, BAZNAS hopes to serve more muzaki (those who are obliged to pay zakat) in a wider range.
