PayPal Launch Online Payment Solutions in Malaysia

May 25, 2010

PayPal announced today that it has entered a strategic partnership with Maxis Berhad, the largest mobile operator in Malaysia. The two companies will offer online and mobile payment solutions to 12 million Maxis customers. PayPal said this is the first time a mobile operator and a global online payments provider have teamed up on such an effort. “Today, customers leave their house with three critical things: their mobile phone, wallet and keys,” says PayPal’s Farhad Irani. “The Maxis-PayPal Account will let them access their wallet through their phone.” As a result of the partnership, Maxis customers will be able to pay for goods, services and bills via PayPal on their mobile devices. “This partnership is a further milestone in PayPal’s short but dynamic history in Asia Pacific and will hopefully serve as a further boost to e-commerce and online payments for mobile in Malaysia leading to new levels of convenience and benefits to customers.”
