Delivery platform foodpanda Hong Kong has collaborated with HSBC to launch mobile payment service PayMe on its app with an aim of enhancing the adoption of quick commerce. 

The adoption of PayMe allows foodpanda Hong Kong's one million users to use the payment service in addition to credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard, PayPal, Alipay HK and even pay the deliverer at the doorstep. The company added that by working with PayMe, customers merchants can enjoy greater convenience. 

“We invest heavily in our delivery operations and never cease to shorten and optimise our delivery time to address our customers’ frustrations. We are answering these demands with our as fast as 10 minutes delivery, and by working with strategic partners such as PayMe, to bring ‘quick commerce’ to the next level with a faster and more convenient payment method," said Ryan Lai, managing director of foodpanda Hong Kong.

Dharini Kannan Hemant, head of PayMe at HSBC, also added, "Since its inception four years ago, PayMe has transformed from a person-to-person payment solution to a trusted mobile payment app, which enables users to pick up bills at tens of thousands of merchants. PayMe remains committed to building a robust and diverse mobile payment ecosystem that adds value and convenience to both our users and merchants and we're excited to partner with foodpanda Hong Kong."

To celebrate the partnership, foodpanda Hong Kong consumers can enjoy four offers when paying with PayMe on the platform until 31 December 2021, enjoying up to HK$75 discount per purchase. 

In August, PayMe also collaborated with McDonald's Hong Kong to strengthen its digital offerings and allow customers to use HSBC's PayMe to pay at self-order machines as well as counters served by staff. The fast food chain previously allowed customers to use PayMe to buy meals in its app.

Randy Lai, CEO of McDonald's Hong Kong, said the addition was aimed at enhancing McDonald's Hong Kong's dining experience. "We strive to offer a total of 2.6 million McDonald's app users an 'online-merges-offline' experience. We are honoured to partner with HSBC to offer a more comprehensive experience to benefit more customers. In the future, we will be creating a more advanced dining experience."
