KPJ Healthcare Partners Pine Labs to Offer BNPL Payment Option

by November 10, 2022

KPJ Healthcare Berhad (KPJ Healthcare) is collaborating with Pine Labs, a merchant commerce omnichannel platform, to offer flexible payment options for its patients.

This service allows payments for KPJ Healthcare’s medical services to be made at Pine Labs’ point-of-sale terminals located at the hospital’s payment counters via debit or credit card.

The Pine Labs platform provides a unique option of converting the payment into a zero-interest instalment plan through its extensive network of 14 banking partners and for charges above RM500 for up to 24 months via debit or credit card.

Pine Labs’ Point of Sale terminals also enable Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) instant conversions and accept digital payment via popular E-Wallet platforms, including Touch N’ Go, Grab Pay, Boost, WeChat Pay, Shopee Pay, and Alipay.

The service is available at 30 KPJ hospitals in Malaysia located at the Central and Southern regions, with plans to be rolled out across the group’s remaining hospitals in phases. Full deployment is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2023.
