AsianWallets teams up with Japan's Globepay an Trysee

Asianwallets has signed cooperation agreements with Japanese mobile payment providers Globepay and Trysee. The three parties will provide local payment services and exclusive benefits for members, targeting Southeast Asian tourists traveling Japan.

Reaching out to tourists from Thailand and Singapore, to build a closed loop for payments, membership, booking and marketing

According to statistics released by the Tourism Bureau of the Japanese Government, tourists from Thailand to Japan reached 1,132,100 in 2018, a year-on-year increase of 14.7%. The number of tourists from Singapore to Japan was up to 468,300, a year-on-year increase of 8.2%. Connecting with Asianwallets means that Japanese partner merchants can support more than 1.6 million tourists to use their local mobile payment apps to pay for purchases.

Asianwallets has targeted integration of "members' rights" of partner merchants, and reached out to tourists from Thailand and Singapore through upstream financial institutions, to realize the closed loop marketing of "tourists are the customers, and payment endows them with membership benefits".
