Malaysia’s online payment service provider MOLPay has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Square.my, a Malaysian-based social commerce platform for Facebook users, allowing online entrepreneurs and small retailers to sell online through secure payment processes while leveraging the social networking platform with over 1 billion users.
With the collaboration between MOLPay and Square.my, online sellers would be able to manage their online businesses; from inventory management, payment process, accounting, marketing, right up to product delivery.
This partnership aims to make a transition to offline businesses and to help women to start their own businesses easily via Facebook Commerce (F-Commerce). It’s free to setup a shop, thus eliminating the barrier to entry for woman entrepreneurs to setup online shops and kick start their F-Commerce via Square.my and MOLPay.
