Wise Becomes First Non-Bank in Malaysia to Offer Apple Pay and Google Pay

by September 20, 2023 1 comment

Online money transfer service Wise has enabled its Malaysian customers to add its card to Apple Pay or Google Pay on their iOS or Android devices. Wise claims to be the first non-bank in Malaysia to do so.

Users will need to open the Wise app and tap on the card tab, where they can see all their available cards. They can then select the card that they would like to add and then tap on ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ or ‘Add to G Pay’.

They will then be able to use them to pay in-store, online or in-app, and on public transport both locally and internationally.

In addition to the physical card, customers can also add up to three digital cards to Apple Pay or Google Pay. These digital cards come with different card details for an extra layer of protection, and can be frozen after each purchase.

With the Wise card, customers can hold and spend in over 40 currencies at the mid-market exchange rate and no foreign transaction fees. Wise also provides two free ATM withdrawals of up to RM1,000 per month.

“More and more customers want the ease and convenience of mobile contactless payments – and we’re excited to be the first non-bank in Malaysia to offer Apple Pay and Google Pay. As we celebrate four years in Malaysia, we have been working hard to expand our product offering and bring more localised features to our customers.


We first launched low-cost and fast money transfers in Malaysia in 2019, and since then, we have expanded our services to include a multi-currency account and prepaid card, and the ability for customers to send funds to 11 more mobile wallets in Asia, including Malaysia’s Touch ‘n Go.”

said Lim Paik Wan, Country Manager, Malaysia at Wise.
