Rabbit LINE Pay and Rabbit Card offer greater convenience to BTS passengers
Rabbit LINE Pay launching the innovative payment service,
the launching is aimed at facilitating BTS passengers' fare payments through
Rabbit LINE Pay. The service is a result of collaboration between Rabbit LINE
Pay, a leading mobile payment operator, Rabbit Card and BTS. Through their
smartphones, passengers can register for the service, add the stored value, buy
trips, check the outstanding stored value and review their trip history.
Passengers can deduct fares from Rabbit LINE Pay's e-wallet or from their
credit or debit card which be linked with Rabbit LINE Pay. The service includes
notifications prior to fare deduction and notifications when trips are bought
via LINE or when the outstanding stored value is below the fare, to assure
transparency and enhance convenience. The service is now available at the
ticketing offices at all BTS stations.
As of October 2018, over 10 million Rabbit Cards have been
in use, Rabbit LINE Pay serves 5 million users and the numbers jumped 50% in
less than 6 months. Amid the rapid growth of users, the number of participating
merchants nationwide has grown to more than 50,000. By the end of 2018, the
number of merchants is expected to reach 60,000, Rabbit LINE Pay aim to grow
the number of bound cards to 500,000 by the end of 2018.
The cooperation not only offers BTS passengers’ greater
convenience but also acts as a catalyst in turning Thailand to a cashless
society and driving Thais towards the Thailand 4.0 era. The service also serves
a goal to make Rabbit LINE Pay the No.1 mobile payment platform in Thailand.
