HNB PLC, partnered with popular internet payment gateway provider OnePay, further expanding the selection of online shopping options available to customers and its extensive portfolio of SMEs across the island.
The partnership paves the way for more than 900 merchants, using the OnePay platform to receive payments from card holders. Many merchants using the internet payment gateway are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which are engaged with multiple merchant segments.
“As Sri Lanka’s banking sector leader in the digital payment revolution, we have been aggressively pursuing partnerships with platforms with a strong track record,” HNB Head of Cards Gauthami Niranjan said. “Banking and financial institutions must collaborate with other stakeholders like FinTechs, to create a robust national digital payment ecosystem, which would benefit the entire economy, especially Sri Lanka’s SMEs,” he added.
“By enabling HNB cardholders to make payments through our platform, this partnership will significantly benefit and strengthen our merchants,” OnePay CEO Amila Fernando said. “We are fully committed to extending the benefits of emerging digital technologies and driving the growth of Sri Lankan SMEs, which form the backbone of the domestic economy,” he added.
