Whether it’s paying an electricity bill, buying food from a vendor or sending money to a friend, if you’re in Thailand, all you have to do is scan a QR code, or input a phone number or a verified ID. Transactions are instant, free, and not restrictive of which bank you or the receiver use.
In 2021, that’s not quite groundbreaking. Countries like Singapore and India have similar real-time payment systems. But how about being able to do the same things overseas?
Thai users can now pay for goods and services and transfer money to individuals in Indonesia as easily, and vice versa.
