Mastercard and PingPong, global leading cross-border payment service platform, today announced their collaboration that will provide more secure and efficient payment solutions for cross-border e-commerce merchants. The partnership will focus on the fields of acquisition and card-issuing services.

According to Salesforce Shopping Index, global digital commerce grew 58 percent year-on-year in Q1 2021, reflecting the continued growth in online shopping[1]. This new partnership will allow cross-border e-commerce businesses, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to benefit from comprehensive digital payment solutions, including more effectively harnessing online sales data. As a renowned payment processing service provider for global commerce, PingPong provides e-commerce clients compliant, secure, efficient and value-added profound payment solutions, striving to refine all operational aspects in great depth. 

“The partnership with Mastercard is a milestone for PingPong in our globalization strategy. Digital transformation has allowed the economies of Asia and other emerging markets, particularly China, to gain access to the global market on a larger scale and at a deeper level. Cross-border payment plays a crucial role in enabling payment services in global transactions. PingPong will combine its cutting-edge experience in worldwide cross-border payment with Mastercard’s expertise to provide more efficient and convenient financial services for companies entering the global market, including SMEs, technology enterprises and traditional enterprises that are undergoing digital transformation,” said Chen Yu, founder and CEO of PingPong.

“Mastercard is focused on innovating its payments technology to better support SMEs and are therefore pleased to partner with PingPong to provide companies with a comprehensive, efficient and secure payment solution for them to further develop their business. Mastercard believes that this partnership will serve to expand SMEs’ access to cross-border e-commerce, supporting their growth at a time when digital and online shopping continues to boom,” said Helena Chen, Managing Director, Hong Kong and Macau, Mastercard.   

Building on this significant partnership, the two organisations will work together in the long term to use technology to offer users more comprehensive and reliable payment systems and financial services.
