WhatsApp is reportedly in talks to launch mobile payments in Indonesia.
The Facebook-owned company is also launching a P2P payment platform in India.
In Indonesia, it will partner with existing local digital wallets instead due to regulations.
According to Reuters, the business is currently speaking to a number of digital payment firms in the hopes of making a deal.
What does this mean?
Indonesia’s epayment market is growing quickly, with the younger generation leapfrogging the likes of plastic and moving straight to technology. WhatsApp will be able to move quickly by partnering with an existing player to gain a slice of the action.
