Leading local payments platform PPRO has announced a partnership with GrabPay, an e-wallet developed by Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading superapp. The move is in line with PPRO’s business strategy to expand its offering across the APAC region and accelerate global coverage.
PPRO will roll out GrabPay in two stages. The first will support GrabPay’s one-time payments solution for the Singapore market and the company’s recently launched check-out service, which allows online merchants to integrate GrabPay into e-commerce payment platforms. In the second phase, PPRO will support GrabPay’s tokenised payment option.
Grab is present in 8 countries throughout Southeast Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia. PPRO’s Tristan Chiappini, VP, Head of Partnerships Asia, adds: “We are delighted to be partnering with GrabPay. Even today, only 27% of people in South East Asia are ‘banked’ – meaning there is currently a huge untapped market of consumers who would benefit greatly from this partnership.”
PPRO has an indirect sales model, marketing its products and services to payment service providers with vast, global merchant bases. Currently PPRO has integrations with around 130 PSP partners with approximately 40,000 merchants transacting daily on its platform.
