Ja'afar Raihan said, "PayHalal and MRSB has mutually agreed to form an alliance to tap on each other's strength. We hope to be of assistance to MRSB in providing Shariah-compliant e-commerce platforms and services that will give both businesses and customers, especially but not limited to Muslims, a peace of mind in their everyday dealings."
"We in turn, also hope to be able to stretch our wings, as the world's first Shariah-compliant payment gateway, and tap into other markets beyond Asean's consumer base in the foreseeable future."
"Already this agreement allows us to penetrate the Asean+3 markets of China, Japan and South Korea. We are confident of more traders seeing the benefit and potential of having business transactions via online Islamic platforms, which will naturally appeal to the growing Muslim consumer base worldwide," he said.
