PayPal Singapore brings to you a series of workshops called FinTech Learning Series, which started in Dec 2016! Our goal is to share with you some of the FinTech industry best practices and knowledge that we hope will benefit you in your business.

About the sharing and speaker:

Aditya Haripurkar is the Founder and CEO of HitPay. HitPay enables one-tap payment checkouts for social commerce businesses which allows buyers a unique mobile native checkout experience and increases conversion for online businesses.

Social media platforms are the dominant product discovery platform on the internet. Post the product discovery stage, buyers have no choice , but to perform the product purchase on the online store. This disrupts the process of a seamless customer journey from discovery to purchase as it is estimated that 45% of buyers drop off the purchase journey immediately and 44% of buyers purchase the product at a later stage. This distinct lack of an instant payment checkout on social commerce platforms is the leading reason for mobile conversion rate globally to be at 30% as per Google.

HitPay solves this problem by providing a simple one-click instant purchase experience for buyers without requiring to fill out lengthy forms and going through new account creations. HitPay merchants are provided the benefit of increased conversions resulting from the one-click purchase experience and usage of HitPay’s social commerce checkouts within any social or chat platform without any integration effort or coding skills.

Founded in 2016, HitPay is a Singapore based Fintech startup that currently has over 300 online merchants on its platform and has processed over $1m in transaction volume. HitPay was a MAS Fintech Award Finalist in 2017 for the first payment keyboard implementation in South East Asia.
