KUALA LUMPUR – SELANGKAH BIZ, the newly launched mobile application and digital solution by SELANGKAH, is helping small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia move towards a contactless and cashless business environment to ensure safe, secure, and smooth transactions, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With SELANGKAH BIZ, any registered business in Malaysia can accept cashless payments using their own devices, transforming their phones into payment terminals with just a few taps.
The merchants only need to download the application and register to become a SELANGKAH BIZ merchant, which will then provide them access to the Unified Payment Platform to receive cashless payments through multiple e-wallets and manage their daily transactions easily. This will also help the SMEs save costs while providing their customers with greater convenience and value, without the need for device installation and rental.
The payment platform available on the SELANGKAH BIZ app was made possible through a collaboration with Kiple, who designed the end-to-end system for the app. The user-friendly interface makes it possible for the merchant to present their customers with a variety of payment options for their convenience.
At the moment, this includes e-wallet and cashless payment options such as Touch n’ Go, Boost, Grab, Razer and kiple’s e-wallet, kiplePay. Kiple has also made it possible for merchants to monitor their overall sales through transaction records, allowing for easy daily tracking.
In February, the national digital economy blueprint, MyDIGITAL was unveiled by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, which outlined the country’s plans to accelerate the adoption of digital solutions amongst all factions of society for greater economic growth. Part of the agenda includes the push for cashless payment platforms, which have increasingly become a preference for consumers and businesses alike.
However, not all businesses are utilising such cashless platforms as they almost always involve investments in terms of terminals and physical hardware, which will incur extra costs to their already tight budgets. In response, SELANGKAH, which started as the country’s first official contact tracing app has since introduced SELANGKAH BIZ to overcome these challenges faced by SMEs and provide a solution to their payment predicament.
Aside from providing business owners with cashless solutions, SELANGKAH will also soon roll out SELANGKAH WALLET and SELANGKAH PAY within the app to provide its users with a one-stop solution for all their digital needs in the new normal.
