Razer Fintech, the financial technology arm of Razer, today announced the acquisition of PT E2Pay Global Utama (“E2Pay”). Razer is the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers. E2Pay is one of the leading B2B2C digital payment facilitators and e-money players in Indonesia. Razer Fintech is already a leading O2O (offline to online) digital payment network in Southeast Asia. This acquisition marks its further expansion into Indonesia.
Founded in 2012, E2Pay provides a breadth of payment solutions to merchants and financial institutions. This includes payment gateway, e-money, and remittance services licenses in Indonesia. These services complement Razer Merchant Services as it facilitates cross-border payments for its 60,000 merchants to the region’s largest populated country. Razer Merchant Services is Razer Fintech’s business-to-business regional arm.
E2Pay’s payment gateway supports high-growth e-Commerce verticals, including online marketplaces, professional services, travel & tourism, as well as other segments throughout Indonesia, with some of E2Pay’s most notable merchants consisting of Tokopedia, Bukalapak, Traveloka and Blibli.com.
E2Pay provides payments across channels
The Indonesian fintech player also connects major payment channels and supports local and alternative transaction methods. This includes card schemes, internet banking, mobile banking, e-money, virtual accounts, offline points, and personal financing. E2Pay provides a comprehensive local payment platform for more than 500 merchants in the region.
The E2Pay e-money platform, MBayar, serves over 500,000 registered users. For instance, it supports payments for credit or data plans, bill payments, QR payments, cash withdrawals and fund transfer services.
“E2Pay is one of Indonesia’s very few digital payment players that has a comprehensive set of licenses. These licences span various payment gateway services, e-money, and remittance. The acquisition of E2Pay allows us to accelerate our entry into Indonesia. Indonesia is one of the fastest-growing digital economies in Southeast Asia. Acquisition of E2Pay will also allow us to better serve the digital payment needs of our regional and global merchants. All of this is done via a single partner of choice. Above all, I look forward to working closely with the E2Pay team to grow our presence in Indonesia considerably in the years to come.” said the CEO of Razer Fintech, Lee Li Meng.
“E2Pay are very happy to have Razer Fintech onboard. We hope that the synergy between E2Pay and Razer Fintech will enable both organizations to tap on our merchant base to grow, expand and scale our platform’s reach across Southeast Asia.” Said E2Pay Chairman, Rudy Danandjaja.
Indonesia sees steady E-Commerce growth
Internet usage in Indonesia has been steadily growing, with a Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) of USD $40 Billion in 2020. This growth has been mainly driven by e-Commerce. This growth has even offset declines in Travel, Transport and Food Delivery industries throughout lockdown periods according to the e-Conomy SEA Report by Google, Temasek and Bain & Company. Therefore, this acquisition of Razer Fintech and E2Pay looks to contribute to Indonesia’s expected GMV of US $124 Billion by 2025, at a 23% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). In conclusion, this acquisition will make Razer one of the largest payment services provider in the region.
