Stripe and WhatsApp Partnership
The partnership will help WhatsApp make more money in Southeast Asia by letting thousands of businesses receive payments directly in a chat.
In a press release Stripe said: “The new feature is built on Stripe Connect and Stripe Checkout, and enables Singapore customers and businesses to buy and sell directly in WhatsApp without having to go to a website, open another app, or pay in person. Supported payment methods include credit and debit cards, and PayNow, a real-time payment system popular in Singapore.”.
Starting in the upcoming months, WhatsApp Business Platform users across all Singaporean companies can now opt to activate the payment feature on their accounts.
