Indonesia’s Jet Commerce expands to Malaysia
Indonesian e-commerce enabler Jet Commerce is expanding to Malaysia.
“Malaysia is an important market for Jet Commerce’s business growth, considering that the Malaysian e-commerce industry is growing rapidly as well as the development of the e-commerce industry in Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries,” Jet Commerce founder and CEO, Oliver Yang said in a statement.
The company also has a presence in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and China.
Jet Commerce has been planning for the Malaysian launch since end-2019. Jet Commerce Malaysia, based in Kuala Lumpur, has been actively recruiting employees for its six departments,— operations, accounts, design, marketing, customer service, and human resources.
Since last year, Jet Commerce Malaysia has focused on establishing partnerships with various e-commerce platforms in Malaysia, such as Akulaku Malaysia, Shopee Malaysia, and Lazada Malaysia.
ShopeePay integrates with Google Play
Sea group’s digital payments service ShopeePay has integrated with the Google Play Store in Indonesia.
ShopeePay’s head of strategic merchant acquisition Eka Nilam Dari said the collaboration will provide a new digital payment solution, and encourage digital transactions.
Users only need to add ShopeePay in the payment method menu then enter the ShopeePay pin or confirm via fingerprint / Face ID. After being successfully activated, users can start making app purchases on Google Play.
Besides Google Play balance, transactions can be made via credit cards and debit cards and cell phone bills. However, according to press releases from Telkomsel, XL Axiata, and Indosat, every purchase of the Google Play application will be subject to an additional 10% tax and a service fee of around 2%.
