Splitit and EFTPay Partner to Offer Installment Payments to Hong Kong Merchants

Partnership enables merchants to offer interest- and fee-free monthly payments to customers, meeting growing consumer demand

SYDNEY, June 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Splitit Payments Ltd. (SPT.AX), a leading global monthly installment payments solution business, today announced a partnership with EFT Payments (Asia) Limited ("EFTPay"), a payment solutions provider established in Hong Kong focusing on digital wallet services, to offer Splitit's installment solution to EFTPay's merchants operating in Hong Kong and Macau.

EFTPay is one of the key partners of Alipay in Hong Kong, providing digital wallet services to merchants including Marriott, UGG, Kate Spade, Sunglass Hut, Estee Lauder and many more. These merchants will now be able to offer their online customers access to Splitit's payment method solution to pay for purchases with an existing debit or credit card by splitting the cost into interest- and fee-free monthly payments, without additional registrations or applications.

Splitit enables merchants to offer their customers across the globe an easy way to pay for purchases in monthly installments with instant approval, decreasing cart abandonment rates and increasing revenue. Splitit's omnichannel technology requires no credit check, application, or registration, translating to a speedier and more efficient transaction in-store, online, or via mobile device.

"This partnership allows us to continue our growth and expand our presence in APAC. We are delighted to offer EFTPay merchants a simple way to boost sales and improve customer satisfaction by offering interest-free installments at checkout," said Andrew Pipolo, Splitit's Executive Lead APAC.

"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 installment payments over other traditional incentives such as discounts and free shipping," said Gil Don, CEO and Co-Founder of Splitit.

"Creating personalized, omnichannel experiences is now getting more important than ever for brands," said Andrew Lo, Chairman and CEO of EFTPay. "This partnership allows customers of our merchants a 'buy now, pay later' solution. The addition of Splitit's cross-border offering gives our merchants such a solution without requiring the customer to apply for additional credit, significantly increasing customer satisfaction."
