JAKARTA, Indonesia, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
KinerjaPay Corp.,(OTCQB: KPAY), a digital payment and ecommerce platform, ("KinerjaPay" or the "Company") today announced that Indomaret and Alfamart, two of Indonesia's largest convenience store chains, will now allow customers to make payments on any transaction performed inside KinerjaPay platform.
Edwin Ng, Chairman and CEO for KinerjaPay Corp., commented on the addition, "Our primary objective is the facilitation of commerce for Indonesian businesses and consumers. As the vast majority of our customers do not have bank accounts or credit cards, virtually all transactions are made with cash; KinerjaPay enables customers to shop and pay bills using their smartphones instead."
Ng added, "These agreements provide our customers with access to another 23,000 conveniently located sites where they can use what we refer to as our "modern channel" solution for the unbanked population. Users can go to any convenience store and make payments for transactions they conduct through KinerjaPay, like paying electric or phone bills, purchasing phone vouchers, and online shopping."
Indomaret is a chain of retail convenience stores with over 12.800 stores across the country, primarily on Java, Bali, Madura and Sumatra islands. It is the first and largest chain of its kind, with stores in residential areas, office buildings and public facilities.
