How to Accept GrabPay Payments in WordPress
Last updated on
Do you want to accept GrabPay payments on your WordPress site?
GrabPay, a popular payment method in Southeast Asia, allows online businesses in Malaysia and Singapore to offer a digital wallet payment solution to their customers for one-time payments.
In this article, we’ll share how to easily accept GrabPay payments in WordPress.
What is GrabPay?
Launched by Grab, a ridesharing service provider, GrabPay is the most widely accepted digital wallet in Southeast Asia. It allows its users to make online payments using a stored balance. They can also “top-up” their GrabPay wallet balance using their connected debit card or bank account.
Offering GrabPay removes the need for your customers to enter their card and billing details during checkout, increasing the likelihood of them completing their transactions.
Additionally, depending on your payment processor, the transaction fees for GrabPay are generally less expensive than credit and debit card payments.
For example, in Singapore, Stripe charges 3.4% + S$0.50 per transaction for local card payments. The Stripe fee for GrabPay payments is just 3.3%.
In Malaysia, the Stripe processing fee for GrabPay payments is 3%, while the payment processor charges 3% + RM1.00 for card payments.
How Does GrabPay Work?
To pay with GrabPay, customers in Singapore and Malaysia are redirected to GrabPay’s website, where they have to authenticate the transaction using a one-time password. After authentication is complete, customers are redirected back to your site.
GrabPay payments offer a lowered risk of fraud because the authentication is initiated and completed by the customer.
