Atome enables consumers to conveniently spread out payments for purchases into three equal installments over three months, without any additional fees or interest. Merchants will receive the full payment upfront.

“We are excited to introduce Atome’s flexible payment method in Malaysia and Singapore as BNPL continues to attract a larger consumer base. The integration of Atome will help merchants grow their business while making purchases more accessible and affordable for consumers,” said Ezra Don Harinsut, co-founder and president of Opn.

The popularity of BNPL is surging in Malaysia and Singapore, as the payment option offers easier access to credit and higher purchasing power, especially for consumers without credit cards. According to the World Bank, the credit card ownership rate in Malaysia is 7.9%, while in Singapore, it stands at 41.7%.

Reports from ResearchAndMarkets.com indicate BNPL payments in Malaysia are projected to grow by 23.6% annually, reaching US$2,298.6 million in 2023. Similarly, BNPL payments in Singapore are expected to grow by 20.6% annually, amounting to US$1,270.4 million in 2023.

Through Opn’s integration with Atome in Malaysia and Singapore, retailers utilizing Opn Payments can tap into Atome’s extensive customer base, which exceeds a million users in both Malaysia and Singapore.

Moreover, enhanced affordability offered by BNPL empowers consumers to make purchase decisions for larger-ticket items, leading to increased conversion rates and basket size for merchants. BNPL can boost conversion rates by 20-30% and increase the average ticket size by 30-50% for e-commerce businesses, according to RBC Capital Markets.
