The solution will be made available to GHL face-to-face merchants in the next phase.
Group CEO of GHL Sean Hesh remarked, “GHL is excited to be the first in ASEAN to be integrated to Visa Instalments API to provide seamless shopping experience and expand consumers’ purchasing power, especially when it comes to bigger ticket items. The payment flexibility is just the beginning of many of our continuous efforts and innovative solutions that we hope to grow with Visa here onwards.”
Kim J. Hak, Head of Products for Visa Malaysia highlighted, “Visa Instalments empowers consumers the ability to choose how they pay upon checkout, and simplifies the current friction and time-consuming instalment process for buyers and sellers. We’re extremely excited to partner with GHL to integrate our API with their payment gateway and offer this solution to thousands of online merchants. We will be working with our issuer partners to enable this solution for Visa cardholders shortly so that they can make instalment payments with eGHL merchants.”
