BTI Payments operates ATMs and payment kiosks in various countries across Southeast Asia.

Established in 2015, BTI Payments Philippines owns and operates more than 700 Payment kiosks under our ‘Pay&Go’ brand across the Philippines as well as a small but growing number of ATMs.

Following our ventures in India and the Philippines, BTI Payments Cambodia was established in 2020. We currently operate close to 100 ATMs and Cash Deposit Machines for the retail banking sector and are looking to grow our digital transformation and cash management offerings.

Established in 2000, EFTEX is our payments processing business. Operating an ACI Postilion payments processing platform, EFTEX is focussed on security, reliability and innovation.
