Ksher Payment, a leading fintech company providing financial service for Thailand’s merchants, launched an integrated online and offline payment solution for Merlin Entertainments (Thailand) Ltd.,
the operator of SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World and Madame Tussauds Bangkok, to accept payment from Chinese tourists via the most innovative and advanced way. The aim is to enable a cashless society and facilitate Chinese Tourists’ digitalized consumer behaviour, for instance: Chinese tourists prefer making a payment via WeChat Pay and Alipay application, and prefer to acknowledge payment amount in RMB.
Mr. Jason Lee, Marketing Director of Ksher Payment Co., Ltd., said, "The data revealed that over 64% of Chinese tourists prefer using an e-wallet via popular Chinese applications like Alipay and WeChat Pay and more than 40% don’t carry cash. As a result, the business owners targeting Chinese tourists should provide the payment system consistent with the behaviour of Chinese tourists because it will serve as a channel that facilitates the customers, makes a big difference, increases sales, and captures business opportunities."
"Recently, Ksher Payment launched a comprehensive financial solution for Merlin Entertainments (Thailand) Ltd., operator of SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World and Madame Tussauds Bangkok, which are currently popular among Chinese tourists. The solution covers an online system that allows them to book tickets in advance and pay immediately through a mini-program of the WeChat application (WeChat Go). Alternatively, they can pay at the point of sale via EDC Ksher Cashier placed at the location where tickets are sold and tourist information centres. Chinese tourists or tour agents can pay money via E-wallet applications, WeChat Pay and Alipay, by scanning a QR code and paying at an EDC machine, which clearly shows the currency exchange rate to the tourists and prints the receipts to tourists immediately.”
Furthermore, Ksher Cashier system enhances the partner shops’ efficiency in financial transaction management. It is ideal for shops with many branches as it can manage the income systematically by separating each cashier. Furthermore, the money can be transferred to the same or different accounts as required to let the shop know where the sales came from. Partner shops that use Ksher solutions also benefit from special sales-supporting campaigns, techniques for penetrating the market of Chinese tourists, and seasonal subsidized campaigns from Alipay and WeChat Pay that help attract customers.
Business owners and shops interested in using the Ksher financial solution to expand the business with customers, including Chinese and Thai tourists, can apply for the service for free! No application fee is required. For further information, please call 0-2150-0508 ext. 2, contact Line: @ksherservice, Facebook: KsherThailand, or visit www.ksher.com
