AmBank (M) Berhad (AmBank) continues to step up its digital strategy by opening up its wide merchant network to accept Digi’s vcash QR code as an additional payment service. This ‘e-payment partnership’ with Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) takes on a two-pronged approach. Firstly, AmBank’s merchant point-of-sale (POS) terminals will be enabled to accept vcash QR code transactions. What this means is that vcash users can pay for their transactions via Digi’s vcash mobile app. vcash users only need to scan the QR code to pay.
Secondly, Digi will be signing up small and mid-sized enterprise (SME) merchants under the Master Merchant programme with AmBank. This will translate to more merchants accepting vcash payments, while growing AmBank’s merchant base.
“This strategic tie-up with Digi complements our efforts in broadening our product offerings to existing merchants as well as new merchants, while staying relevant and competitive in the digital landscape. It is also part of our ongoing efforts to support Bank Negara Malaysia’s agenda to accelerate the country’s migration to electronic payments (e-payments) as we move towards becoming a cashless society,” said Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group.
“In advancing eWallet payment technology, we are working on more strategic partnerships to offer wider acceptance to our customers. We embrace and appreciate these technology companies by complementing their product with our service,” added Dato’ Sulaiman.
