BigPay, a Capital A venture company and digital bank aspirant, announced that it has rolled out DuitNow offerings for its users nationwide.
With this move, BigPay’s users now have access to DuitNow QR and DuitNow Transfer for all payments.
In order to pay with DuitNow QR, users simply have to open the BigPay app and scan a merchant’s DuitNow QR code to complete the transaction.
BigPay users with linked airasia rewards accounts will earn points for every transaction made using DuitNow QR. These points can be redeemed on flights, food delivery and rides on the airasia superapp.
Meanwhile, BigPay users can use the service to make instant domestic fund transfers with participating local banks and e-wallets with DuitNow Transfer
Users can quickly make fund transfers to other recipients through DuitNow IDs, which can be a recipient’s mobile number, NRIC number, business registration number, police/army ID, or passport number.
Since its inception in 2017, BigPay added a range of regulated financial products on top of the e-money account, such as international remittance, micro insurance and recently, digital personal loans.
To date, there are over 1.2 million carded and transacting users on BigPay.
“As BigPay aspires to be Malaysia’s go-to platform for simple and secure financial services, we believe that adding the suite of DuitNow products is a key part of the story.
In addition, there was an overwhelming demand from our users and we listened. We are continuously working to make it easy for BigPay to be used everywhere and at all types of merchants – the DuitNow features enable this.”
