IOUPAY (IOU.ASX) has the goal to become one of the leading digital transaction processors in the booming cashless economies of South East Asia. The stock currently trades at 30c per share, so lets take a look with Prophet Exclusive and see, Are IOUPay Shares (IOU.ASX) Heading for a Position in the $1 Club?
What Business Do IOUpay Shares Operate In?
IOUpay are in the business of processing digital payments and mobile banking in South East Asia. It seems as though the adoption of Digital payments in South East Asia has recently reached an inflection point with uptake expected to cross US$1 trillion by 2025. This seems to be a massively addressable market and even a small slice of the pie will be beneficial to IOUpay Share Price.
IOUpay operate in providing secure mobile banking services connecting banks and their customers. They also connect billers and end user customers enabling the purchases of utilities and other common household goods.
IOUpay also recently added new capabilities to process Buy-Now Pay-Later (BNPL) installments and consumer loan payments.
IOUpay has a BuyNowPayLater (BNPL) option too?
As mentioned in the companies Appendix 4C April 2021. The significant focus has been applied to securing a number of strategically targeted, high quality and large merchant networks to lay the initial distribution platform for the company’s new BNPL service offering to customers.
The company is in a unique position to capitalize on first mover advantage for BNPL services in Malaysia. This is similar to Prophet Invest favorite Fat-Fish Group See Report.
IOUpay estimate that they will have access to ~75,000 merchants upon full roll out of the EasyStores and iPay88’s merchant pools.
We are excited about the prospects of BNPL around the world and having a first mover advantage is a great position to be in.

IOUPay Stock: Prophet’s Take
Prophet is bullish on the BNPL sector as a whole. We love FatFish Group (FFG.ASX) shares which have a first mover advantage in Singapore. We are neutral on IOUpay shares and it will be very interesting to see how they put their massive pile of cash to work for them.
If they can employ their cash to capture a decent segment of market share we will revisit the stock.
