2c2p, southeast Asia Payments Startup, Raises $52 Million for Expansion

Payments platform 2C2P, which helps airlines, travel companies and online shopping malls handle payments from customers, has raised $52 million from investors including the World Bank’s International Finance Corp., to fund expansion.

Yoolim Lee reports at Bloomberg.com: “Southeast Asian payments platform 2C2P Pte, which helps airlines, travel companies and online shopping malls handle payments from customers in the region, has raised $52 million from investors including the World Bank’s International Finance Corp., Cento Ventures and Arbor Ventures to fund expansion.

The new funding round will bolster the company’s position in Southeast Asia’s burgeoning digital payments market as more customers move online to shop, order meals and book flights and hotel rooms. Driven by new technologies and startups, the region’s financial services are undergoing a rapid transformation. Digital payments in the region are projected to exceed $1 trillion by 2025, from $600 million in 2019, according to a recent study by Bain & Co., Google and Temasek Holdings Pte.

Even with so much local growth still untapped, 2C2P’s ambitions stretch beyond its local region, the company said in a statement, and it will look to expand further afield “over the next year.”

Chief Executive Officer Aung Kyaw Moe said 2C2P will continue to serve corporate clients rather than consumers directly. “We know what they need, how they want to collect payments, and we can build it for them,” he said about the company’s corporate clients in a statement.”
