PPRO adds Zip’s BNPL to the payment mix

PPRO merchants will soon have the ability to integrate Australian provider Zip’s buy-it-now and pay-later services at the point of payment.

Zip, which includes Zip Pay and Zip Money, becomes the first Australian BNPL method to be added to PPRO’s digital payments infrastructure and sits alongside other local Australian payment methods.

The new integration allows PPRO’s global partners and their merchants to offer Australian consumers a way to pay with their preferred payment option when shopping online.

Tristan Chiappini, Vice President and Head of Apac Partnerships at PPRO, comments: “Australians are ahead of the curve when it comes to using alternative payment methods like instant bank transfers, digital wallets and BNPL products to conduct online transactions. In fact, the popularity of BNPL continues to grow in the country, it will soon overtake credit and debit cards as the preferred method of payment. Adding Zip to our Australian payments mix allows us to better serve our PSP partners and their merchants, giving them greater access to Australian consumers and the country’s growing e-commerce industry.

Earlier this year, PPRO acquired Alpha Fintech in a deal that will strengthen its presence in Asia-Pacific and enable it to offer a plug-and-play orchestration layer that will enable its customers to integrate products and services faster and at scale.

For Zip, which is looking for a buyer for its UK subsidiary and recently canceled a deal to acquire US company Sezzle, the deal opens up access to the PPRO ecosystem of cross-border payment service providers and merchants.

Tommy Mermelshtayn, Chief Strategy Officer at Zip, said, “This exciting new alliance will enable us to expand our partner ecosystem globally supporting our core markets and better manage our partner onboarding process.”
