Rapyd, a Fintech-as-a-Service company, has announced the launch of its ‘all-in-one’ suite of payment capabilities in Thailand which is its seventh global market.

Rapyd’s solution is a comprehensive set of local and international payment methods that includes local ewallets, bank transfers, cash, credit and debit cards. International companies can now offer localised checkout experiences with access to the list of local payment methods preferred by Thai consumers.

Rapyd has partnered with leading Thai payment solution providers, including Rabbit LINE Pay, Omise, Razer Merchant Services and GB Prime Pay.

Businesses based in Thailand will also reportedly be able to access Rapyd’s Global Payments Network and expand internationally into more than 100 markets around the world by accepting payments from consumers in any of the 900 local payment methods supported by Rapyd.

According to JPMorgan, Thailand is the second largest e-commerce market in South East Asia with cross-border spending making up 50% of Thailand’s e-commerce spend. Thailand’s mobile commerce is valued at $8.9 billion in-app and $4.7 billion in-browser mobile purchases.

“The Thai government is building strong digital payment infrastructure and encouraging more digital wallet adoption. We are thrilled to partner with leaders in the Thai payment ecosystem to offer preferred local payment options Thai consumers use every day for their online and physical transactions.
