Founded in 2013, Omise (which means “store” in Japanese) is an online payments platform that allows businesses to securely accept payments over the internet. The startup currently operates in Thailand and Japan, and service will soon be available in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The firm recently announced its support for Alipay to enable e-commerce merchants to accept online payments from Chinese citizens visiting the Kingdom.

In July last year, Omise secured US$17.5 million in its Series B financing round, led by Japan’s leading venture capital firm SBI Investment with significant participation from Sinar Mas Digital Ventures, Ascend Money, and Golden Gate Ventures.
