PayerMax Secures Licence in Indonesia




PayerMax, a leading omni-method fintech company based in Singapore, has been granted a significant opportunity to expand its operations in Southeast Asia. With licenses already held in various countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, the UAE, and Hong Kong, PayerMax has now been authorized to operate in Indonesia as well.

This new development comes as the Bank of Indonesia recently granted PayerMax a license to offer its innovative payment solutions in the country through its subsidiary, PT Smart Fintech For You. The license obtained by PayerMax is expected to solidify the company’s position in Southeast Asia’s booming digital economy, which was valued at a staggering $77 billion in 2022. Google, Temasek, and Bain & Company project this figure to reach an impressive $130 billion by 2025.

Indonesia has experienced remarkable growth in its fintech industry and infrastructure over the past few years. Notable advancements include the establishment of the Quick Response Code Indonesian Standard (QRIS) system and the introduction of the National Open API Payment System (SNAP). The QRIS system enables faster and more efficient payment transfers through leveled QR code payment systems integrated into popular digital applications and wallets like GoPay, ShopeePay, OVO, and DANA. SNAP was launched to enhance interoperability and interconnectivity within the digital payment system.

However, one of the challenges faced by Indonesia’s payment ecosystem is limited accessibility for the underbanked and underserved population, which comprises a significant portion of the country’s inhabitants. In response, innovative solutions have emerged, leading to a diverse payment ecosystem but also resulting in insufficient linkages.

PayerMax aims to address these challenges by offering its payment solutions to the growing markets in Indonesia while further developing the country’s fintech industry. To ensure successful operations, the company has been enhancing its localization efforts by expanding its local office and establishing dedicated and specialized departments for risk management, technology, compliance, and more.


Currently, PayerMax boasts local teams in approximately 14 countries and regions, covering over 80 markets. The company has demonstrated its adaptability by recognizing 70 currencies and offering an extensive range of 530 payment methods, among other services.

As PayerMax enters the Indonesian market, it holds the potential to revolutionize the country’s payment landscape by providing innovative and inclusive financial solutions. With its extensive experience and commitment to localizing its operations, PayerMax aims to contribute to Indonesia’s journey toward a more connected and accessible fintech ecosystem, benefiting both businesses and individuals alike.
