Digital consumer financing platform Atome has announced a partnership with TikTok Shop that aims to drive ecommerce growth in Malaysia.


The strategic collaboration is set to enable businesses of all sizes, particularly young entrepreneurs, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to tackle the potential of online shopping and further economic growth in the country.

Atome – TikTok Shop partnership and the Malaysian ecommerce landscape

Based on the information detailed in the press release, Malaysia’s ecommerce industry has seen considerable growth within the past years, following an increase in digital adoption and changing consumer behaviour. According to Statista research, online shopping in Malaysia is projected to exceed USD 18 billion by 2025, a trend signifying not only a shift in consumer preferences but also presenting a significant opportunity for local businesses to succeed in the digital marketplace.

Atome’s simplified Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) service provides consumers with the flexibility to carry out purchases and spread deferred payments over the course of three or six months. Following Atome’s go-live as a payment option on TikTok Shop in Malaysia, consumers can benefit from an improved online shopping and checkout experience. With TikTok Shop’s social commerce features and Atome’s convenient payment solution, entrepreneurs are enabled to leverage the strength associated with ecommerce to expand their reach and drive sales growth.

When commenting on the announcement, William Yang, Head of Commercial, Atome advised that the partnership between TikTok Shop and Atome marks a milestone within the Malaysian ecommerce landscape, as it indicates a new era of convenience, accessibility, and growth for businesses and consumers alike. With the integration of Atome as a payment option on TikTok Shop, the company aims to help drive ecommerce growth and support brands of all sizes, but especially SMEs and young entrepreneurs in Malaysia, while also offering consumers the choice, convenience, and flexibility of how they want to shop and pay.

Adding on this, Jonathan Low, Ecommerce Lead of Strategy and Special Projects, TikTok Shop said that TikTok Shop seeks to elevate the shopping experience for consumers and provide brands and small businesses with opportunities to drive growth, all of which is enabled by bringing together content and commerce. Per the spokesperson’s statement, through this collaboration with Atome, Tik Tok shop is helping merchants and small businesses to offer their consumers a payment option that is both flexible and convenient.
