Online payments platform eWAY launches in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia

eWAY, Australia’s leading e-commerce merchant and payment solutions platform, launched in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, giving e-commerce businesses, retailers, and startups a better option for selling online.

eWAY makes it a breeze for merchants to start accepting payments fast, and makes the e-commerce experience better for consumers as well.

Since launching, eWAY has processed more than 110 million transactions worth $15 billion for over 16,000 active businesses both large and small.

eWAY seamlessly integrates to over 350 e-commerce shopping cart platforms, and a network of custom integration development partners, meaning it will work for any business that wants to grow by accepting digital payments.

The launch today adds three more countries to eWAY’s rapidly expanding global operations. eWAY can now support business operating across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

eWAY will also leverage its global relationship with accounting software provider Netsuite for online payments within large enterprises.

Webjet Exclusives, a leading Australian businesses in its field, has already chosen eWAY as the payments partner for its Singapore expansions.

Matt Bullock, Founder and CEO eWAY, said the move into the Asia Pacific region was fuelled by the rapidly growing e-commerce space which needed to be backed by a flexible, fully-integrated payment platform.

“E-commerce in Asia is growing at a phenomenal rate, and merchants need better options. Everyone is looking for convenience, self service or a person to help them through the process for online commerce, depending on their needs. eWAY provides all these options and more for merchants.

“We’ve been around since 1998 so we have the experience and the track record to help businesses of all sizes. Some of the established payments players in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia have been crippled by process. They’re too slow for agile, fast-moving businesses.

“On the flip side, we’ve geared our business towards efficiency, and customer service. We have 24/7/365 support, live chat, and email support globally. We’re a true partner to the merchants that choose our platform, and we’re thrilled to be able to expand into new markets with them.

“We’re excited to launch eWAY in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia today, a decision made easy because of the merchant demand for our platform. We have both Australian businesses expanding into Asia, and Asian entrepreneurs, begging us to bring our service to the market here.

“Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia have sophisticated retail markets with savvy shoppers and we anticipate a rapid adoption of our facilities, as merchants and consumers move to the convenience of shopping online as a supplement to traditional brick and mortar shopping.

“eWAY is the best solution for ambitious businesses that want to grow throughout Asia Pacific.

“What sets us apart is our strength in security and fraud protection as well as our ‘follow-the-sun’ approach to customer support, which means eWAY merchants are guaranteed 24/7 phone, LiveChat, email support, as well as developer integration support.

“There are no setup fees, monthly fees, surprise charges, or card storage fees with eWAY. We want to help businesses succeed with a powerful but cost-effective way to accept payments.

“Whether you get 10 visitors a day or 10 million, eWAY just works,” said Bullock.

eWAY’s platinum partnership with Symantec allows it to provide SSL encryption at a fraction of the usual cost.
