Razer Pay To Be Accepted in NETS Terminals in 2019by Fintechnews Singapore November 12, 2018
Razer, a global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced that it is working with NETS Group to enable Razer Pay acceptance on NETS unified POS terminals, with the goal of enabling full interoperability by the time Razer Pay launches in Singapore in Q1 2019.
In addition to NETS, major household brands such as Reebonz, Sistic, SP Group, and WTS Travel are also working with Razer Pay in various capacities in the lead-up to its Singapore launch. These discussions may include Razer’s expertise in both in-store offline purchases, as well as online payment.
For example, Razer is working with SP Group to integrate payment directly within the Razer Pay app – no scanning of QR code necessary. In this way, users can experience convenience and ease of payment for their utility bills.
Similarly, customers will also be able to pay Sistic for their tickets to the next blockbuster musical act or K-pop concert entirely within the Razer Pay app.
Razer Pay users in Singapore will also enjoy existing industry-leading gaming and digital entertainment offerings, such as Steam Wallet codes, Blizzard balance PINs, and Sony PlayStation PINs.
“Since we announced our intention to launch Razer Pay by the first quarter of 2019, we’ve seen tremendous interest from businesses in Singapore keen to collaborate with us and integrate our e-payment framework,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO, Razer. “This is evidence that Singapore’s cashless ambition is still alive and kicking, and no existing single provider has managed to satisfy all of these merchants.”
“With our focus on interoperability and collaboration with our industry friends, we’re confident that Razer Pay can step up to be the go-to e-payment provider in Singapore, covering everything from online to offline purchases,” Tan added.
The birth Razer Pay is believed to originate from a twitter exchange between PM Lee Hsien Loong and Razer’s CEO, Ming-Lian Tan
Say the word and I’ll have the epayment system rolled out nationwide in 18 months. For Singaporeans. By Singaporeans 😉
