Indonesian e-commerce manages to reach such number, according to Andi, is because of two things; namely the growth of Indonesian economy and the fact that now e-commerce website in Indonesia has provide a safe and comfortable media to shop online. That includes payment from customer to e-commerce owner and goods delivery from e-commerce owner to the customer.

Unfortunately, the increase of Indonesian e-commerce does not followed by the development of payment platform. Andi mentions that around 70% of e-commerce shopper pays with bank transfer. The rest trust the transaction to credit card. This payment platform is still widely open for development.
