COLOMBO – PAYable(Pvt) Ltd., Sri Lanka’s leading cashless payment solution provider, announced it has processed Rs 15 billion in transactions on its platform to date.
Commenting on the milestone, Yohan Wijesiriwardane, CEO & Co-founder of PAYable Sri Lanka, said PAYable’s entry to the cashless ecosystem in 2016 was a game changer. “We disrupted the existing status, empowering MSME (micro, small, and medium enterprise) merchants who previously were not eligible for cashless payment terminals from banks. By empowering these merchants, we were able to change the way they manage and grow their revenue.”
The PAYable solution is highly robust and scalable, compliant with the highest international payment security standards and the company believes it has just scratched the surface of what is possible in a ‘cashless Sri Lanka’.
“We are on track to introducing a pioneering range of solutions to strengthen both our banking partners and merchants, with support from our partners internationally,” Wijesiriwardane said explaining that the innovations will benefit and bolster their current base of card-present and card-not-present solutions, which includes the new PAYable PRO and the PAYable MINI, their Android payment acceptance terminals, the sleek and simple Keypad MPOS that pairs with Android and iOS devices and the recently-launched PAYable Online, a web platform that gives merchants strong new services such as online store creation and integration of social media selling in a formal invoicing system.
Working in partnership with several of Sri Lanka’s leading banks, PAYable has been a major driver in the growth of the cashless payment ecosystem in Sri Lanka, by enabling the significant increase of cashless payment acceptance points from 2.0 to 3.8 for every 1,000 Sri Lankans.
