Boku Partners with GoPay as a Payment Option at Global Services in Indonesia

The partnership allows payment at Boku's global merchants, such as Netflix and Spotify using GoPay

Bintoro Agung - 17 October 2019

Boku mobile payment platform partners with GoPay. The agreement creates an opportunity for its global partners in Indonesia to use GoPay as the digital payment option.

The company based in London, England, plays the role as a payment solution that connects 170 operators worldwide to its global partners, such as Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Spotify, and Paypal.

“Our mission is to create seamless transactions and partnering with GoPay is a big step to achieve the goal,” Boku’s CEO, Jon Prideaux said.

GoPay is one of the leading players in the digital payment in Indonesia. Google, one of Gojek’s investors, has put GoPay as one of its payment options in late July 2019.

Aside from its own app, GoPay (with Dana) will be available through Samsung Pay.

“With Boku’s global merchants network, we can help Indonesian traditional consumers to participate in the digital economy worldwide,” Gopay’s SVP Digital Product, Timothius Martin said.

This maneuver makes sense due to Indonesia’s e-wallet market has been rapidly growing. Redseer‘s report projected the market to grow up to US$25 billion or Rp354 trillion by 2025, multiple times over US$1.5 billion equivalent to Rp21.2 trillion in 2018.

“We aim to continue the collaboration with GoPay to introduce non-cash payment to more users and more acquisitions of Indonesia’s global partner users,” he added.
