Under the partnership, residents in Thailand can pay for their domestic travel accommodations in three zero interest payments with no additional charges or service fees by selecting Atome as a checkout option on Agoda Thailand's mobile app or website. To pay, users first have to download Atome's app and register an account, before selecting Atome as the checkout payment option. Agoda is already partnering with Atome in several other Southeast Asian markets like Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines.
Atome Thailand General Manager Poompong Tancharoenphol said, "Domestic tourism and hospitality sector has been one of the hardest hit due to Covid19. As Thailand gradually opens up to international travel again, we're happy to launch our partnership with Agoda in Thailand to boost domestic travel to revive the local Thai tourism and hospitality industry. What this means is that Thai residents can now pay for their domestic travel holidays and staycations on Agoda's website or mobile app with Atome, just in time for their year-end travel plans."
Atome recently launched operations in Thailand in September, partnering with over partnering 100 online and offline retailers including Agoda, Sephora, Konvy, Aldo, Charles & Keith, L'Occitane, EveandBoy, Anello, Radley, Esprit, Converse, Havaianas and OSIM, across key shopping categories such as fashion, beauty, travel, lifestyle and home and living. Atome also recently announced its first-ever global celebrity brand ambassador, popular K-pop group ASTRO, as well as the launch of its #OwnTheExtraordinary campaign in Thailand, lasting until the end of the year. The campaign involves a series of online and offline interactive challenges, activities, and promotions over 11.11, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas to stimulate year-end retail sales and recovery.
