One click away: You can now pay tuition for some 180 schools with GoPay

first_imgForget traditional payment methods or bank transfers; users of Gojek’s digital wallet platform GoPay, now have the option to pay for school tuition and other bills for students and student activities with just one click through the GoPay app.The homegrown decacorn has struck a partnership with around 180 education institutions — including pesantren (Islamic boarding schools), madrasah (Islamic religious schools) and learning centers across the country — making payment options for them available on the app’s GoBills feature. “This latest feature enables parents and guardians to pay for their children’s tuition anywhere they want, without having to physically go to the school. Busy parents should no longer worry about missing tuition deadlines,” GoPay senior vice president of sales Arno Tse said in a statement on Monday.  He went on to say that schools would also benefit from digital payments made through GoPay, as every transaction would be automatically recorded and organized for posterity.So far, schools and institutions that have joined with GoPay and are featured in the app’s GoBills include, among others, the IPMI International Business School in Jakarta, UNICEF (Universal Central English Foundation) Kampung Inggris in Kediri, East Java and Al Hidayah boarding school in Depok, West Java.“We hope to be able to reach out to more educational institutions in Indonesia to implement digital payments,” Arno said.GoPay has previously cooperated with Tarumanegara University in Jakarta; Bunda Mulia University in Tangerang, Banten; and Madrasah Miftahul Akhlaqiyah in Semarang, Central Java, on the implementation of the Quick Response Indonesia Standard (QRIS). The company also provided electronic payment infrastructure for over 50 vocational high schools (SMK) in North Jakarta, early last year.
