The agreement will see the Hong Kong-based payment provider bring Splitit’s interest-free plans to shoppers in Hong Kong online and in store.
“With online sales at an all-time high, it’s imperative that merchants optimize their e-Commerce businesses to meet the rising demand from consumers, who we have found to be increasingly receptive to instalment payments over other traditional incentives such as discounts and free shipping,”
What Splitit offers over a credit card, is that the handy app operates outside of credit checks, registration or any strings-attached applications.
EFTPay is a key partner with the Chinese and Hong Kong region’s massively successful Alipay.
“This partnership allows customers of our merchants a ‘buy now, pay later’ solution. The addition of
EFT’s portfolio of services currently includes globally operating companies Marriott, UGG, Kate Spade, Sunglasses Hut, Estee Lauder and more.
In store and online shoppers at outlets such as these will now have access to Splitit’s flexible payment options.
The contract between the two payment companies is inked at an initial three-year term, subject to termination if desired. EFTPay is required to satisfy minimum quotas of transactions using Splitit as part of the agreement.
Splitit management believes that EFTTPay’s partnership on sales will have a significant impact on profits and usage if these targets are met.
