Just recently Touch ‘n Go had introduced QR Transit. It’s a new feature which allows you to pay for your LRT rides with just your smartphone. If you’ve been following our site, you would probably know that we’re not impressed with the Touch ‘n Go mobile app. Can QR Transit turn things around? Read on to find out.
Finding an empty parking lot is stressful enough and paying for parking is another headache altogether. For those who park at roadside parking lots, there’s the problem of not having enough coins and it gets worse if you couldn’t find a working ticketing machine. Boost, an eWallet provider, is offering a solution to this and it’s rolling out in two weeks.
With more cashless players appearing in Malaysia, Maybank has recently introduced its own mobile payment solution that’s called QRPay. Instead of having a separate e-Wallet, QRPay works with your existing Maybank savings and current account.
In the initial phase, QRPay was primarily used to pay merchants via QR Code. With the latest version, you can use it to make direct peer to peer transfers.
The physical Touch ‘n Go card has been the defacto choice for commuters. You don’t have to queue up to buy tokens and you get to enjoy the lower cashless fare.
Soon, you’ll be able to pay for your train rides with your smartphone as Touch ‘n Go is rolling out a new feature starting this week.
In a bid to encourage usage of its mobile wallet, Touch ‘n Go is now offering 10% cashback when you pay for utility bills on your smartphone. The Touch ‘n Go app is a QR-code based mobile wallet and it’s a separate system from their physical cards.
When it comes to making contactless payments, Visa payWave is the most convenient option for consumers today. Despite some misconceptions about contactless payments, Visa payWave is actually a lot safer than you think and here are three things that you need to know.
Whether it is dining or shopping, paying by cash can be inconvenient. If you don’t have enough cash, you’ll need to find an ATM and it gets worse if there’s a long queue. If the cash is too large, some cashiers might be reluctant to accept your money.
Why fumble with cash and coins when you can go cashless with Visa payWave? It’s easy and secure, saving you time to focus on things that matter the most.
A few days ago, Touch N Go had introduced its mobile app which lets you reload your physical Touch N Go card. This is a feature which many users have been waiting for. Imagine being able to top up your card at any time and at anywhere with your smartphone.
However, for those who have tried it, it turns out that the reload function isn’t as convenient as it seems. With complaints pouring in, Touch N Go has suspended this reload channel until further notice.

UPDATE: Touch N Go suspends their mobile reload feature. Here’s their full statement.
Reloading a Touch N Go (TNG) card has always been a pain in the butt. While the introduction of those TNG terminals in shopping malls is a nice touch, it’s still super inconvenient that you can’t just reload online or through an app.
That is, until now. We discovered recently that TNG released a new app that allows you to reload your card right from your smartphone. But, this is Touch N Go we’re talking about, so of course there’s some silly, confounding catch that makes things a whole lot more inconvenient than it should be. In fact, it’s so unnecessarily complex that it almost plays itself out like the three stages in a magic trick.
