Singapore, 2 June 2021 - hoolah, Asia’s leading omni-channel Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) ecosystem announced its regional partnership with Strawberrynet, the world's leading online discount beauty retailer to allow consumers from Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia to split their purchases across three monthly, interest-free repayments.

Founded in 1998, Strawberrynet offers skincare, makeup, fragrance, and hair care products from over 800 premium brands. Through this partnership, customers from Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia can split their beauty purchases across three monthly, interest-free instalments when they checkout via hoolah on Strawberrynet’s e-commerce site.
