Gaming hardware manufacturing company Razer has partnered with NETS Group to enable Razer Pay acceptance on NETS unified POS terminals across Singapore, prior to the launch of Razer Pay in Q1 2019.
In addition to NETS, household brands such as Reebonz, SISTIC, SP Group, and WTS Travel are also working with Razer Pay in various capacities in the lead-up to its Singapore launch. A statement by Razer said that these may include the company's expertise in both in-store offline purchases, as well as online payment.
Razer is currently working with SP Group to integrate payment directly within the Razer Pay app, no scanning of QR code necessary. As such, users can experience "unprecedented convenience" and ease of payment for their utility bills, the statement added. Customers are also able to pay Sistic for their tickets within the Razer Pay app.
In addition, Razer Pay users in Singapore will be offered gaming and digital entertainment offerings, such as Steam Wallet codes, Blizzard balance PINs, and Sony PlayStation PINs. Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer said the company has seen "tremendous" interest from businesses in Singapore keen to collaborate and integrate its e-payment framework ever since the gaming company announced its intention to launch Razer Pay.
“This is evidence that Singapore’s cashless ambition is still alive and kicking, and no existing single provider has managed to satisfy all of these merchants. 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,” Tan added.
Most recently, Razer was said to be looking to bring its smartphones to other markets next year, with Malaysia being a key market it is looking into. According to an article on CNA, Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan and Australia will soon have access to its new Razer phone. The company is also getting its marketing and sales teams more involved as part of its business plan.
