ShopeePay is an e-wallet that allows users to pay for goods without requiring bank cards or cash. Shoppers can also use ShopeePay to buy items at a select number of offline merchants. To pay with ShopeePay, users simply choose it at the online checkout. They can now also use the e-wallet at some brick-and-mortar stores.
To top up ShopeePay, consumers transfer money from their bank account. Or, if they’re unbanked or simply don’t want to use a bank-transfer, they can top up at a participating convenience store or other outlet.
In the markets where ShopeePay is most active, e-wallets are a highly relevant e-commerce payment method. In Indonesia, for instance, consumers use e-wallets to pay for almost a third of all online purchases. In Singapore, that figure is 20%, in the Philippines also 20% — and so on.
Alongside ShopeePay, other e-wallets popular in Southeast Asia include Alfamart, DOKU, GrabPay, GoPay and Hyperwallet.
