Momo & Gojek announce strategic partnership, integrating Momo's wallet on the Gojek app in Vietnam
Gojek users in Vietnam now can use the MoMo’s wallet to pay for Gojek services
Ho Chi Minh City, March 14, 2022 - Super app MoMo and Gojek, Southeast Asia’s leading mobile on-demand services platform, today announced a strategic partnership, which will see MoMo become the first e-wallet to be integrated in the Gojek app in Vietnam. Gojek and MoMo will combine the technological strengths and wide-reaching ecosystems of the two platforms, aiming to accelerate the use of cashless payments and provide a safe, fast, and convenient payments experience for consumers.
Through this partnership, MoMo will support the millions of Gojek users across two and four-wheel ride-hailing services (GoRide and GoCar), online food delivery (GoFood) and logistics (GoSend), providing the option of using the MoMo e-wallet to pay for Gojek services, in addition to the existing payment methods of bank cards and cash. As Gojek continues to expand its suite of products and services, MoMo will also gain access to a growing pool of customers.
The introduction of e-wallet MoMo is part of Gojek’s strategy to offer users more payment options on its app, following the launch of its card payment feature last year. The partnership will enable Gojek to tap into MoMo's ecosystem of over 31 millions users, while meeting the needs of Gojek users who wish to have more payment options, especially with the rising shift to contactless payment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The usage of e-wallets for payments has been growing in Vietnam due to its convenience, speed, and low cost. Contactless payment also enables greater safety for users when transacting, especially for high frequency transactions such as food delivery, transport and logistics. With the integration of MoMo, Gojek consumers in Vietnam will be able to access a popular payment method that is also safe and easy to use, with top-ups for MoMo’s wallet available through a wide variety of online and offline channels.
“More than 31 million people in Vietnam use MoMo today, and by integrating the e-wallet into Gojek’s ecosystem, we will be able to offer an enhanced payment experience to consumers. Through this partnership, we also hope to help Gojek’s driver and merchant partners reach more customers, increase their income and recover from the pandemic,” said Nguyen Ba Diep, Co-founder & Senior Vice President of MoMo.
Duc Phung, General Manager of Gojek Vietnam said, “At Gojek, we are always looking for ways to work with our partners to bring more benefits to users. Our partnership with MoMo represents the first time Gojek is collaborating with a Vietnamese tech company, building on our complementary business strengths and a shared commitment to improve lives through technology. Through the integration of MoMo’s e-wallet on Gojek, our users will have more payment options to choose from when paying for Gojek services, providing a more seamless, convenient, and safe experience on our platform. We look forward to continuing to work together with MoMo to promote cashless payments in Vietnam, so that more Vietnamese people can enjoy the benefits of digital payments.”
To mark this partnership milestone between MoMo and Gojek, the two platforms will offer first-time service users several promotions. The first gift package is from Gojek, with a total value of VND600,000: From 14 March 2022, users who install the Gojek app for the first time will be eligible to receive a gift package of up to VND600,000 (including 18 vouchers for GoRide, GoCar Protect, and GoFood services; and 1 GoFood voucher after making their first payment for Gojek services with MoMo)*.
To add MoMo as a payment method on Gojek, Gojek users simply have to go to the “My Profile” icon on the upper right side of the Gojek app, select “Payment Method”, and add “MoMo" to the list of payment methods.
MoMo users can also install Gojek from the MoMo app and link their MoMo wallet to their Gojek account. To do this, simply go to MoMo’s main page, type “Gojek" in the search field, select “Download Gojek and connect with MoMo wallet”, press “Download Gojek", and follow the next steps as instructed.
