By Leandra Monteiro
Episode Six and HSBC are celebrating the third anniversary of a technology partnership that has played a role in helping PayMe from HSBC become Hong Kong’s leading e-wallet provider and proven how Episode Six’s platform, Tritium, can help banks quickly scale up products aimed at large customer bases and easily extend those products into new areas.
Since the partnership between PayMe and Episode Six started in 2018, PayMe’s user base has grown to over 2.5 million, while the app has gained the largest share of all e-wallet peer-to-peer fun transfers in Hong Kong and consistently expanded its merchant network across sectors in the city. Tritium is the industry’s most flexible and extensible technology of its kind with over 600 APIs and ready-to-launch product suites.
“The three-year milestone of our collaboration with Episode Six illustrates our dedication to nurture a strong ecosystem with the wider fintech community,” said Catherine Zhou, Global Head of Ventures, Digital Innovation and Partnerships at HSBC. “Partnerships like this are key to drive innovation within financial services and shape how the future of banking will look. With PayMe, we have re-imagined digital payments, enabling our customers and merchants to transact seamlessly within an engaging digital platform. Episode Six enables banks, fintechs and the broader business community to design effective digital journeys with efficiency.”
“We’re proud to be working with HSBC and growing our partnership while advancing financial technology,” said John Mitchell, co-founder and CEO of Episode Six. “Our platform is enabling traditional and digital first banks around the world to bring on-demand digital payment offerings to their customers, responding to the shifting needs of consumers and businesses globally. Our vision is for our extensible and adaptable platform architecture to empower all of our clients with unparalleled user-driven configurability to enable any payment transaction across any imaginable asset class, any time and in any way.”
