2C2P, 2C2P, a global payments platform, announced its partnership with the Satun Tourist Business Association and Nopchalermroj Foundation, a non-profit organisation in Thailand, to help stimulate recovery in Thailand’s tourism sector by harnessing advanced digital payments technology.

As part of Nopchalermroj Foundation efforts to revive tourism, the foundation worked closely with the Satun Tourist Business Association to develop a tourism sandbox model that allows TEST & GO tourists to visit Koh Lipe, one of the most popular tourist attraction without quarantine.

Tourists simply have to download New Ultimate Experience (NUX), a mobile app that helps local municipal officials and medical staff to verify the COVID-19 records of tourists. Upon arrival at the jetty, tourists could rent customised smartwatches that are connected to NUX with a safety deposit, allowing Satun Provincial Health officials to monitor their health vitals during their stay in Koh Lipe. If tourists are feeling unwell, they could flag their symptoms on the app and receive health services at a fee. Nopchalermroj Foundation chose 2C2P to provide the quick and reliable payment gateway needed to deliver this registration and rental service. The sandbox model will be officially rolled out to all international tourists at the beginning of June.

“We’re very pleased to welcome the opening of Thailand’s borders to international tourists. With this partnership with Nopchalermroj Foundation and 2C2P, we believe that tourists can travel to Koh Lipe with peace of mind, with the smartwatch technology enabling tourists to seamlessly register their vaccination details while enjoying their stay,” said Samart Jaroenrit, President of the Satun Tourist Business Association.

“Amidst the pandemic, Nopchalermroj Foundation has been working tirelessly to develop the NUX technology to revive tourism in Koh Lipe, using technology to maximise safety and convenience. We also appreciate 2C2P’s team for supporting us on the payment end. This helped us tremendously during the time-crunching phase of NUX’s development. 2C2P’s payment solutions were flexible and could cater to our differing needs (mobile app and rental solution) and were deployed efficiently during the testing period last year,” said Assistant Professor, Thanit Puthpongsiripprn, PhD, Nopchalermroj Foundation.

“2C2P is delighted to support the inspiring philanthropic work of Nopchalermroj Foundation and play our part in helping Thailand’s hard-hit tourism sector get back on its feet. Recovery in the tourism industry will be accelerated by technology and innovation, with seamless solutions such as our frictionless payment gateway playing a crucial role as we move to a brighter future,” said Aung Kyaw Moe, Founder and CEO of 2C2P.
