Financial technology has grown by leaps and bounds, often by necessity, and has led to significant changes in our operations. Shoppers are more than ever utilizing the internet to find the things they need at the prices they can afford. Merchants rely on digital payment solutions to facilitate the sales they need to thrive and prosper.

In today’s competitive world, where so many companies are vying for a limited pool of consumers, having reliable financial technology can be the difference between a sale and a failure.

Today, we are diving into Asia’s thriving fintech market to understand better the different companies operating therein.
