ADYEN, the payments platform of choice for many companies, announced that a leading travel activities and services booking platform, Klook, has selected Adyen as its payments partner in Asia Pacific.
With the partnership in place, the Hong Kong-based activities booking giant now offers travellers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia their preferred payment methods.
This includes local payment options like Dragonpay in the Philippines which empowers citizens in the developing nation to make over-the-counter payments for online transactions.
By offering more convenient and intuitive payment transactions, Klook provides a simple and frictionless transaction process for travellers.
“To better serve the fastest-growing free independent travel market, it is important for us to optimise the payment experience and allow customers to pay with their preferred currencies and payment methods.
“With Adyen’s integrated platform managing the entire payment flow and our over 5,000 industry partners, travelers from over 60 countries can now enjoy a more frictionless payments process,” said Klook chief product officer David Liu.
With Adyen’s direct acquiring solution in Hong Kong, Klook can also enjoy speedy local currency settlements and a boost in authorisation rates.
Adyen’s customisable checkout flow also provides greater convenience and increased recognition to Klook’s repeat travellers, allowing them to make subsequent purchases with a faster check out process.
“Both Klook and Adyen share a common goal to consistently improve customer experience around the world. In recent years, Klook’s name has become synonymous with leading brands disrupting the travel industry globally. We are thrilled to be able to create a synergy with a fellow disruptor while supporting them with a frictionless payment experience for international expansion,” said Warren Hayashi, president, Asia Pacific, Adyen.
Adyen continues to expand its presence in Asia Pacific. The payments solution provider recently launched its unified commerce solution in Singapore and continues to add the fastest-growing and most innovative companies to its impressive roster of customers.
