Coda Payments - About Hand

About Codapay

Codapay is an alternative payment gateway in Southeast Asia. We enable merchants to accept payments in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore using payment channels that every consumer can use, even if they don't have a credit or debit card: direct carrier billing, bank transfers, cash payments at convenience stores, and physical vouchers. By making a single technical connection and commercial agreement with Coda, our merchants (companies like Baidu, Gumi, and Garena) significantly increase their revenues in the rapidly growing markets that we serve. Similarly, by appointing Coda as a merchant aggregator, our payment channel providers (companies like SingTel, Indosat, and Maxis) generate significant net-new transaction volume.
