Grab: Using transportation to drive mobile payments in Southeast Asia

 

Grab

Most in the region will know Grab as Southeast Asia’s ride-hailing leader. It has achieved rapid growth — now in 30 cities across 6 countries — and offers cashless payments with GrabPay. To make ride-hailing more efficient and seamless, GrabPay was developed to remove the friction and time spent transacting cash.However, many in the region still depend on physical cash for daily living expenses; the World Bank estimating that only 27% of the population has a bank account. To speed mobile payments adoption, Grab is taking a hyperlocal approach to partner with local businesses to expand the use of mobile payments while making it easier to convert stored value into cash.

Joel Yarbrough is the Head of Payments & Commerce Product, Grab.  Join him at GPS to learn more about:

  • Grab’s insights on payment behaviors in the region
  • Using transport to drive cashless payments and ensure financial inclusion
  • Plans for GrabPay across Southeast Asia
