Alipay To Launch In Indonesia

The ecommerce company Lazada has announced that it will introduce Alibaba's Alipay to Indonesia. The company, which is now part of Alibaba, has in the past introduced its own payment system HelloPay, but it has failed to take off, with CEO Florian Holm calling its performance simply “okay”. Holm announced that the company will now be pushing forward with its investment in technology, and currently plans to integrate its own payment system with Alipay. It was also revealed that the reason for the integration lay within Alibaba's payment system having a “good fraud detection” system, adding that the recent hacking issues that hit the local taxi-hailing app Go-Jek would not happen. No launch date has been revealed, but Holm said the new system was a high priority for the company, and that it would be launched “soon”.
