Scoot Selects Worldpay as Exclusive Payments Provider

Scoot has selected Worldpay as its exclusive payments provider.

 Worldpay offers a wealth of expertise in managing the complexities of international eCommerce, including supporting online payments in multiple currencies, optimising the booking process, and integrating with multiple global distribution systems.

 Worldpay is also enabling Scoot to accept a growing range of payment methods favoured by travellers across the region, including Alipay and China Union Pay in China, Konbini in Japan, and POLi Payments and PayPal in Australia.

Leslie Thng, Chief Commercial Officer at Scoot, said, “We see Worldpay as the ideal partner to support our aggressive growth plan, and reduce our time-to-market into each new region. Our new Singapore-Athens route launched earlier this month, and with plans to launch five more new destinations in the next 12 months, we need a payments solution to support our global vision. We are delighted that our collaboration with Worldpay has been so successful, with a seamless on-boarding process and continuous support as we launch into new markets.”

By selecting Worldpay as its exclusive payments provider, Scoot will save time and resources by not dealing with multiple suppliers.

Stuart Thornton, VP Business Development APAC, Global eCom, Worldpay, said, “The global carrier market has never been more competitive, so it is vital that our customers optimise their online services as they expand internationally. Singapore’s flagship airline group has embarked on an ambitious growth programme with its low-cost, long-haul offering. But by putting payments at the heart of its eCommerce strategy, Scoot has been able to cut costs, while increasing sales, helping to improve competitiveness and ensure sustainable profitability in an exciting yet challenging market.”
