Shell Malaysia intends to sign a memorandum-of-understanding (MoU) with Touch ‘n Go which will enable Malaysians to pay for petrol with their vehicle’s RFID tag. For those who missed out on the Free RFID tag offer, there will be 10,000 tags that are offered free from 15th February to 31st March 2020.
At the moment, 950 Shell stations support Touch ‘n Go eWallet payments and Malaysians will soon be able to experience RFID fuelling. According to Touch ‘n Go, the payments will be completed at the bay without any interaction with their smartphones or point-of-sale system. Users can check their payment details via the Touch ‘n Go eWallet app.
Last week, Touch ‘n Go had unveiled their plan to expand its RFID tag usage beyond highway toll payments. Users can look forward to RFID parking in Q3 2020 and RFID refuelling in Q4 2020. The company also targets to introduce drive-thru retail payments via RFID in Q1 2021.
