How to Activate Shopeepay :
Sea Group’s ShopeePay has quickly become a serious contender in Indonesia’s e-payment scene. A recent survey by market research firm Snapcart found that it was the most used e-wallet in the country this March.
ShopeePay has been used by 76% of the respondents, followed by GoPay (57%), Ovo (54%), Dana (49%), and LinkAja (21%), as reported by local media Bisnis Indonesia. The survey also revealed that users frequently pay offline transactions with their e-wallet. Snapcart Indonesia director Astrid Williandry said that the high usage was due to promotions and partnership with many merchants, including retailers and restaurants.
Snapcart claims that as of this month, ShopeePay has a 38% market share and is widening the gap with other players. Both Ovo and GoPay only reached half of ShopeePay’s share, while Dana (10%) and LinkAja (4%) were trailing behind.
Even though the Shopee has been in Indonesia since 2015, its payment service was only officially launched in August of last year. It has taken off since then. According to an earlier survey by MarkPlus, ShopeePay captured with 26% the highest market share between June and September. A study by Ipsos in August noted that ShopeePay also had the highest penetration rate of e-wallets in Indonesia, at 48%.
