Gaming lifestyle brand Razer has partnered NETS Group to enable Razer Pay acceptance on NETS unified POS terminals.
The new partnership between the two companies aim to achieve full interoperability by the time Razer Pay launches in Singapore in the first quarter of 2019.
Other local household brands such as Reebonz, Sistic, SP Group, and WTS Travel are already on board, working with Razer Pay in various capacities in the lead-up to its Singapore launch.
In the partnership with SP Group, the goal is to integrate payment directly within the Razer Pay app – so that no scanning of QR code is required. This will allow users to experience unprecedented convenience and ease of payment for their utility bills.
Similarly, customers will also be able to pay Sistic for their tickets to the next blockbuster musical act or K-pop concert entirely within the Razer Pay app.
Razer Pay users in Singapore will also enjoy existing industry-leading gaming and digital entertainment offerings, such as Steam Wallet codes, Blizzard balance PINs, and Sony PlayStation PINs.
“Since we announced our intention to launch Razer Pay by the first quarter of 2019, we’ve seen tremendous interest from businesses in Singapore keen to collaborate with us and integrate our e-payment framework,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO, Razer.
“With our focus on interoperability and collaboration with our industry friends, we’re confident that Razer Pay can step up to be the go-to e-payment provider in Singapore, covering everything from online to offline purchases," he added.
