Wise, Malaysia’s first non-bank to accept Apple Pay and Google Pay

Wise, an online money transfer service, now allows Malaysian clients to add their card to Apple Pay or Google Pay on their iOS or Android devices. Wise says that it is the first non-bank to do so in Malaysia.

Users must launch the Wise app and select the card tab to view all of their available cards. Then they can choose the card they want to add and hit “Add to Apple Wallet” or “Add to G Pay.”

They will subsequently be able to use them to pay in-store, online, or in-app, as well as on local and foreign public transportation.

Customers can add up to three digital cards to Apple Pay or Google Pay in addition to the actual card. These digital cards can be frozen after each purchase and have unique card details for an additional degree of security.

Customers can store and spend in more than 40 currencies with the Wise card at mid-market exchange rates with no overseas transaction fees. Additionally, Wise offers two free ATM withdrawals per month for a maximum of RM1,000.

“More and more customers want the ease and convenience of mobile contactless payments – and we’re excited to be the first non-bank in Malaysia to offer Apple Pay and Google Pay.

“As we celebrate four years in Malaysia, we have been working hard to expand our product offering and bring more localised features to our customers.

“We first launched low-cost and fast money transfers in Malaysia in 2019, and since then, we have expanded our services to include a multi-currency account and prepaid card, and the ability for customers to send funds to 11 more mobile wallets in Asia, including Malaysia’s Touch ‘n Go,” Lim Paik Wan, Country Manager at Wise, Malaysia said.
