PayPal携手淡马锡投资印度支付平台Pine Labs

在投资并购方面,PayPal公司最近可以说是相当活跃。

就在本周,PayPal再度宣布,将携手新加坡淡马锡公司共同斥资1.25亿美元收购印度数字零售支付平台Pine Labs少数股权。

位于新德里的Pine Labs为商家提供云端POS软件,允许他们接受信用卡、二维码和其他基于统一支付接口(UPI)的产品进行支付。

据了解,该公司每年处理4.5亿笔交易,价值150亿美元,商家用户超过65,000家。Pine Labs声称,15%的印度实体店因其产品而实现了无现金交易。

近些年来,印度当局也在积极推动本国数字支付发展,比如推出了著名的废除大额纸钞行动以及引入UPI接口行动等。因此,PayPal和淡马锡公司都认为,Pine Labs未来在印度的发展空间应该非常巨大。

PayPal表示,其专业的支付产品经验将帮助Pine Labs更好地打造其产品和服务套件,而淡马锡将利用其遍布亚洲的深层网络来支持Pine Labs的区域扩张计划。

 

PayPal's shopping spree continues as the US behemoth makes its third investment in a fortnight, joining with Singapore's Temasek to pay $125 million for a minority stake in Indian digital retail payments platform Pine Labs. The deal comes in the wake of PayPal's recent agreements to buy Sweden's iZettle for $2.2 billion and AI-based merchant marketing outfit Jetlore.

New Delhi-based Pine Labs provides merchants with cloud-based POS software that lets them accept cards, as well as QR-code-based payments and other unified payments interface (UPI)-based offerings.

The firm processes 450 million transactions, worth US$15 billion, a year and is used by over 65,000 merchants, claiming 15% of India's cashless transactions in physical stores.

With Indian authorities making a concerted effort to push digital payments through policies such as demonetisation and the introduction of UPI, PayPal and Temasek are betting that Pine Labs has huge potential.

PayPal says that its product expertise will help Pine Labs as it builds up its product and services suite, while Temasek will tap its deep network across Asia to support the Indian firm's regional expansion plans.

Lokvir Kapoor, founder, Pine Labs, says: "We’re teaming up with Temasek and PayPal at a time when the Indian payments market is at an inflexion point. We are a leader in the offline payments space, a position that is critical in enabling the ecosystem of online payment products. The investments will help us move a step closer to our vision for building a world-class merchant-centric payments ecosystem."
