GHL Enables PayLater by GRAB for Online Merchants

Key Highlights:  
  • Online merchants to boost sales and better manage cash flow with PayLater by Grab
  • Consumers to have flexible payment instalment plan for large purchases


Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - GHL Systems Berhad announced that PayLater by Grab will be available to selected online GHL merchants that are utilising the eGHL Payment Gateway. 


PayLater is a payment option piloted by Grab to provide users with a convenient way to pay for their online purchases and manage their monthly cash flow. Users can choose to make a single payment at the end of the month or split their payments into four monthly instalments with zero interest charge. This also removes the burden of relying on other payment methods such as credit cards, which normally comes with additional charges of annual fees, and late repayment fees plus interest.


For merchants, with the inclination towards e-commerce and digital payments speculated to grow in the next few years , PayLater is envisaged to facilitate their sales conversion and contribute to keep their businesses thriving, regardless big or small.  


Priyanka Madan, Country Lead of Grab Financial Group, Grab Malaysia said, “As a homegrown tech company, we focus on providing sustainable and customised financial solutions for our users and merchant partners to complement the growing cashless lifestyle. PayLater is only available to eligible users with the spending limit personalised based on Grab’s internal analysis. It provides the flexibility of paying for things, while helping users spend wisely. We are therefore pleased to partner with GHL Systems to offer PayLater to their merchants and consumers. We hope this will help consumers manage their monthly spending without dipping into their savings or credit cards, while merchants can increase their sales.”


Echoing Madan, Mr Sean S. Hesh, Group CEO of GHL Systems Berhad said, “GHL together with Grab, are excited to extend PayLater to our online merchant base as PayLater is a win-win solution that will be beneficial to all parties. PayLater provides consumers with an avenue for flexible and higher purchasing power and at the same time, higher sales revenue for merchants. Therefore, merchants with large ticket items do not have to worry about missing out on consumers.” 


He further adds, “This flexible option is timely given employment and earnings capability of many has been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”


Prior to this, GHL and GrabPay have already been working together to encourage more small merchants to accept cashless transactions. To-date, GHL has approximately 2,700 merchants across Malaysia. For more information about Grab’s PayLater service, please visit HERE.
