Daily Briefing: Razer to roll out Visa-issued prepaid cards; Sky Everton condo sold 40% of units in weekend launch

And higher fines for parking violators will kick into effect in July.

From DealStreet Asia:

Gaming hardware manufacturing company Razer has teamed up with financial giant Visa to develop a prepaid card that will allow up to 60 million Razer users to make payments worldwide easily.

In a statement, Razer – which listed on the Hong Kong Exchange in 2017 and was one of the earliest unicorns from Southeast Asia to IPO – said a virtual Visa prepaid solution will be embedded in the Razer Pay e-wallet under the partnership.

Razer Fintech and Visa look to roll out an exclusive Razer-branded Visa prepaid payment solution integrated into Razer Pay via a mini-app. This will enable Razer Pay e-wallet users to make payments wherever Visa is accepted at 54 million merchant locations around the world.

But more than just providing digital payments solutions to Razer’s users, the partnership with Visa also targets Southeast Asia’s large unbanked and underserved population of over 438 million.
