PPRO adds GoPay e-wallet as payment option

Digital payments infrastructure provider PPRO has integrated Gojek’s GoPay e-wallet onto its platform. It offers an alternative payment option for Indonesia and has over 190 million app downloads since 2020. This is also a step closer to offering complete Indonesian market coverage for PPRO. According to the World Economic Forum, the Indonesian market is expected to be the fourth largest consumer market in the world by the end of the decade, with close to 76 million Indonesians joining the consumer class by 2030.

With the addition of GoPay to the payments mix, PPRO’s partners can offer Indonesian consumers the option to pay with different payment methods, including BNPL Kredivo, paytech DOKU, and e-wallets Jenius Pay, OVO and LinkAja. According to research compiled by PPRO, the value of Indonesia’s cross-border e-commerce market is estimated at USD 4.8 billion which presents a huge opportunity for any enterprise, payment service provider (PSP), fintech or bank wanting to tap into this market.

“Indonesia is a market full of opportunity for cross-border merchants but it’s also a difficult one to navigate for those unfamiliar with its complexities. More so than any other Southeast Asian countries, Indonesians vary their payment methods depending on their purchases. That means the expert insights PPRO can offer will be crucial for our partners and their merchants looking to convert more consumers at the checkout. Integrating GoPay onto the PPRO platform is a giant leap forward which will allow us to better cater to the needs of our partners’ merchants looking to make inroads into Indonesia, complementing our already extensive payment method offering in the country,” said Kelvin Phua, VP of Global Development at PPRO.

“As an ecosystem that millions of Indonesians rely on daily, GoPay is committed to offering the best solutions and benefits for our users. This valuable integration with PPRO accelerates our promise of merchant ubiquity to consumers and widens the global merchant ecosystem for GoPay users to transact seamlessly with. In that spirit, PPRO’s partners will get connected to a diverse Indonesian customer base eager to consume global goods and services,” said Vrutika Mody, Head of Global Partnerships and Business Development at GoPay.
