LinkAja, the Indonesian government’s answer to Go-Jek’s e-wallet service Go-Pay, announced that it has collaborated with Go-Jek.
The partnership will see LinkAja payment option available on the digital payment extension of Go-Jek, as reported by Kumparan.
According to the companies, the feature will be available “soon” within this year.
“The collaboration is a follow-up of our commitment to being continuously present for Indonesian users of Go-Pay; all in one accord with LinkAja’s vision,” said Go-Jek President Andre Soelistyo.
Soelistyo further added that Go-Jek and Go-Pay will always be open to collaboration that is going to bring a positive impact to the public, especially the ones that will contribute greatly to Indonesian economic inclusivity.
A similar sentiment is also expressed by Go-Pay Managing Director Budi Gandasoebrata, who said that LinkAja, just like Go-Jek and Go-Pay, supports the acceleration of The National Cashless Movement (GNNT). It also aims to educate Indonesians about cashless payment.
“This collaboration can help accelerate the adoption of cashless payments, especially among the underserved market,” Gandasoebrata said.
LinkAja was officially launched on June 30, 2019 as the e-money product of Telkomsel and a total of seven state-owned enterprises.
LinkAja CEO Danu Wicaksana added that the ultimate goal of the service and collaboration is to increase financial inclusion by 75 per cent by the end of this year, as the government has targeted.
Just today, Go-Jek also revealed that it has received an undisclosed amount of investment from three entities of Mitsubishi into its ongoing Series F round.
