It is interesting to point out that more and more Indonesian e-commerce startups are now able to process credit card payments – a sign that credit cards are gaining traction in Indonesia. Veritrans CEO Ryu Kawano said during the recent TechinAsia Jakarta Meetup that the fewer steps it needs for people to make their purchases online, the easier it becomes for merchants to generate sales. Lesser steps to making payments generate more impulsive purchases.

Besides TeknoUp, Veritrans is also powering the credit card payment systems of other startups including WayangForce, Qeon Interactive, and Sribu.
