Octopus with the help of Tutuka’s APIs is on the fast track to making global online payments more inclusive for the people of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong, May 2019: In March 2019, Global payments enabler, Tutuka, announced their first venture in to Hong Kong in conjunction with Octopus Cards Limited (OCL) and launched a virtual prepaid card, O! ePay Mastercard, allowing users to shop globally online at any merchants that accept Mastercard.
Mr Sunny Cheung, Chief Executive Officer, of OCL, said: “We are excited to partner with Tutuka to offer a seamless global online payment experience to our O! ePay customers as part of our continuous efforts in bringing greater value to Hong Kong.”
OCL is one of the most trusted payment brands in Hong Kong, especially within the transport and retail sectors. Now, with Tutuka’s support, its leadership is further extended into the global e-payments market. Tutuka is known for providing robust solutions, which enhance and enable closed-loop systems to have access to the open-loop market, and the new Octopus O! ePay Mastercard is no different.
The O! ePay Mastercard targets younger customers with growing global online shopping needs as well as those who prefer not to use their credit or debit cards online. Customers can simply sign up for an O! ePay account via the Octopus App and get the O! ePay Mastercard instantly with just a few clicks without the need to submit any proof. Customers can top up their O! ePay account and funds are then immediately available for the O! ePay Mastercard. The maximum account balance for O! ePay is HK$10,000.
Both Tutuka and OCL understand the demand for an innovative global online payment solution. Ms Sekai Ndemanga, Head of Global Partnerships at TUTUKA, said: “Tutuka is known for helping the unbanked have access to reloadable prepaid cards. This will provide a much-needed alternative for those in need. We are delighted that our platform enables companies like OCL to push the boundaries of innovation in launching innovative payment solutions that make a real difference to the Hong Kong people.”
TUTUKA makes payments happen by enabling our clients’ customers to pay with Mastercard, Visa and Union Pay cards and products. This allows many of the unbanked in the world the opportunity and freedom to use these products. With more than 20 years of experience, TUTUKA processes millions of dollars in transactions for over 400 prepaid card programs across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
