GrabPay: Malaysia could finally have its mobile wallet solution

Grab is a little behind if we’re talking about mobile wallets, at least in Malaysia. We already have a several different ones that work roughly the same, with some kind of unique rewards system and payment that happens via QR code.

GrabFood is now available in Malaysia but you wouldn’t want to use it yet

The whole Grab-Uber takeover felt a lot like a bad divorce. Where there was once balance, there is only chaos for everyone left behind.

With the current road congestion, carpooling is the way to go but it takes a lot of coordination from multiple parties. Sure, you can organise a pickup of your colleagues who are staying at different places but the designated driver ends up spending more time going point to point to pick up everyone.
