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.

As Malaysians are starting to adopt mobile payments, there’s now a new retail player that has taken the bold step to go completely cashless. Funmaii, is a new convenience store chain in Malaysia that only accepts electronic payments.
They have just opened its second store in Bandar Puteri Puchong and they aim to redefine retail convenience through a fuss-free and secure cashless experience.
The future of cashless payments is exciting stuff. This utopian future where you don’t have to carry around fat, receipt-filled wallets nor queue up for ages at an ATM machine to withdraw cash. So far, we’ve seen quite a few promising contenders playing in this space already, but the latest one to join the fray may be the most promising one yet.
Visa payWave is the safest and most convenient way to go cashless. However, there are rumours and unverified reports that payWave is unsafe and it is prone to digital theft. Some had alleged that criminals can easily steal your card details using a smartphone and they can use that to make unauthorised transactions.
Visa wants to assure you that payWave is just as secure as any other Visa chip-based cards and it comes with multiple layers of security to keep your card safe.
In the free-for-all slugfest to find the best mobile cashless solution in the world, Maybank has entered the ring with their very own QR-based cashless solution. It’s called Maybank QRPay — not the most original of names but you get the idea.
You’ve heard of Android Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. Well, it looks like there’s going to be a new Pay in the game and that Pay is called Sarawak Pay. Yep, Bank Negara has just approved Sarawak’s own cashless payment system.
