Razer Fintech, the financial technology arm of Razer and global lifestyle brand for gamers, has announced its acquisition of PT E2Pay Global Utama (E2Pay), a business-tp-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) digital payment facilitator and e-money player in Indonesia.
In a statement, Razer Fintech said this acquisition marks its further expansion into Indonesia.
Founded in 2012, E2Pay provides a breadth of payment solutions to merchants and financial institutions, including payment gateway, e-money, and remittance services licenses in Indonesia.
These services complement Razer Merchant Services, Razer Fintech’s business-to-business arm regionally, as it facilitates cross-border payments for its 60,000 merchants to the region’s largest populated country, the company noted.
E2Pay’s payment gateway supports high-growth e-commerce verticals, including online marketplaces, professional services, travel and tourism.
It also supports other segments throughout Indonesia, with some of E2Pay’s most notable merchants consisting of Tokopedia, Bukalapak, Traveloka and Blibli.com.
The Indonesian fintech player also connects major payment channels and supports local and alternative payment methods, including card schemes, Internet banking, mobile banking, e-money, virtual accounts, offline points, and personal financing to provide a comprehensive local payment platform for more than 500 merchants in the region.
Razer Fintech claimed the E2Pay e-money platform, MBayar, serves over 500,000 registered users and supports payments for credit or data plans, bill payments, QR payments, cash withdrawals and fund transfer services.
Lee Li Meng, chief executive officer of Razer Fintech, said E2Pay is one of Indonesia’s very few digital payment players that has a comprehensive set of licenses across various payment gateway services, e-money, and remittance.
“This acquisition allows us to accelerate our entry into Indonesia, one of the fastest-growing digital economies in Southeast Asia, as well as be able to better serve the digital payment needs of our regional and global merchants as the single partner of choice.
“I look forward to working closely with the E2Pay team to grow our presence in Indonesia considerably in the years to come,” said Lee.
E2Pay chairman, Rudy Danandjaja, said the company is very happy to have Razer Fintech onboard.
He said the synergy between E2Pay and Razer Fintech will enable both organisations to tap on its merchant base to grow, expand and scale its platform’s reach across Southeast Asia.
Internet usage in Indonesia has been steadily growing, with a gross merchandise volume of US$40 billion (RM175.7 billion) in 2020, mainly driven by e-commerce, even offsetting declines in travel, transport and food delivery industries throughout lockdown periods according to the e-conomy SEA Report by Google, Temasek and Bain & Company.
Through this acquisition, Razer Fintech and E2Pay look to contribute Indonesia’s expected GMV of US$124 billion ($544.7 billion) by 2025, at a 23% compound annual growth rate.
