In a bid to drive digitization Malaysia’s Sabah launches its own digital wallet

In a bid to drive digitization Malaysia’s Sabah launches its own digital wallet

Sabah, a state in East Malaysia, recently announced the launch of its own e-wallet called ‘Sabah Pay’. The new payment system developed by Sabah Credit Corporation (SCC) looks promising and convenient as it can be used by both the tourists and the locals as well. The digital wallet has links to all public agencies’ portals along with bill payment facilities, which will help increase the state’s government payment collections.

According to George Taitim Tulas, SCC CEO, there are currently 27 agencies and 28 businesses that have partnered with Sabah Pay and the numbers are expected toincrease quickly. The CEO had set a target of onboarding at least five state entities each month.

News announcements by state governments and agencies and the latest events taking place in the state can now be easily known via the app. It will also benefit local businesses as the app could be used as a marketing channel to promote their products and services. Additionally, new services such as e-parking, e-ticket and virtual account will also be introduced soon. The app is being seen as a win-win-win situation for the consumers, the government and the businesses. Previously, ‘S-Pay’ an app developed by Sarawak – a neighboring state of Sabah – was launched in a similar fashion and went international soon after.
