TnG eWallet accepted for payments in Singapore

KUALA LUMPUR, 14 April 2023:

Touch ‘n Go eWallet users from Malaysia can now conveniently make cashless payments at even more participating merchants in Singapore, said TnG Digital Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Alan Ni in a statement today.

Since last year, TnG eWallet users have been able to make payments for products and services at any Alipay+ merchants across Singapore.

With the recently announced enablement via the DuitNow-NETS cross border partnership, TnG eWallet users can now scan and pay at any merchant displaying

  • NETS QR via NETS payment terminals, or
  • SGQR, which include popular local kopitiams and hawkers that do not accept cards.

With the above, the merchant network in Singapore accepting TnG eWallet has now grown to over 130,000 touchpoints, the widest cross border payment coverage for a Malaysian eWallet in Singapore.

They will be able to conveniently transact in their own local currency with live foreign exchange rates, displayed in the TnG eWallet app before making a payment.

“This new seamless and secure transaction feature further expands our eWallet ecosystem. Malaysians travelling to Singapore can have peace of mind as they enjoy the convenience of making cashless payments, knowing the foreign exchange rate upfront, and tracking their expenses instantly,” said Ni.

“The same convenient features are also extended to users with the Touch ‘n Go Visa card, the first numberless card in Malaysia. With this card acting as a complementary payment channel to the eWallet, users will be able to make payments even at merchants that only accept cards.

“We are also excited to welcome visitors from Singapore to Malaysia to enjoy the seamless convenience of using their respective eWallets to make payments at more than 1.5 million merchant touchpoints nationwide by scanning the DuitNow QR code.

“This cross-border payment feature will not only help to support the tourism industry but also increase economic activity among the small and medium-sized retail businesses supported by TnG eWallet.”
