Adyen and PayMe expand global businesses' reach in Hong Kong

Wednesday 3 April 2024 09:17 CET | News

Netherlands-based fintech Adyen has become an acquirer for the mobile payment service provider PayMe by HSBC in Hong Kong.


PayMe by HSBC is a home-grown payment app in Hong Kong accepted at over 65,000 physical and online outlets across Hong Kong, ranging from start-ups and local SMEs to some of the city’s largest daily necessity merchants with a growing base of over three million personal users. By becoming an acquirer for PayMe, Adyen’s merchants can now accept PayMe as a payment method when their Hong Kong customers check out their purchases online.

Officials from Adyen said that this partnership enables their local and global customers to provide Hong Kong shoppers more ways to purchase from their favourite brands. By enabling one of the most popular local payment methods, they help merchants increase their revenue and open up new sales channels and markets – all with a single integration.

The Hong Kong digital payments ecosystem

With the increased consumer use of digital payments following the Hong Kong government’s introduction of the Consumption Voucher Scheme, businesses that stayed competitive started adopting their customers’ preferred payment methods, including PayMe. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority recorded a total of 68.78 million Stored Value Facility (SVF) accounts in use in Q3 2023, a 4.5% increase from the previous quarter and a 10.7% increase from the year before. Adyen’s research also found that 66% of Hong Kong shoppers would abandon their cart if they can’t pay how they want – punctuating the need for businesses to offer their customers’ favourite payment methods, or risk the sales.

Commenting on this partnership, representatives from PayMe by HSBC said they are happy to collaborate with Adyen, which offers payment solutions for some of the world’s largest merchants. In alignment with their mission to foster the growth of electronic payments in Hong Kong, this partnership with Adyen not only allows them to broaden PayMe’s merchant base, but also strengthens their capabilities to meet the diverse consumption needs of their users.

Besides PayMe, payment methods available to Adyen’s customers in Hong Kong include (but not limited to) AlipayHK, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay, JCB, Mastercard, Samsung Pay, UnionPay, Visa, and WeChat Pay HK.
