Expanding sales beyond Hong Kong requires merchants to accept more payment types across devices. Logging in to separate systems such as Direct Card, QRC or Invoicing creates management headaches and can make customer checkout flows confusing.

This unique network and learn event began with a discussion of how PayPal merchants are seamlessly integrating and orchestrating multiple technologies, partners and customer data to expand into international markets.

The roundtable was followed by a hosted wine appreciation session led by a master sommelier.
