Opinions on Paying Using Electronic Apps

Ever since the entry of Alipay to Malaysia, there have been a rise in paying for goods using the so called electronic funds rather than the usual cash or debit/credit cards. For example the state of Sarawak also launched their own apps called the Sarawak Pay. Just wanna ask what do you guys think about it, whether it is good or bad or dont really affect much.

Erm for me not much different also loh, because I usually pay in cash when I'm buying stuffs outside then for online things like from Lazada just use my debit card. Maybe using the apps can make payment easier but the security is a huge concern whether it can be hacked or not.

Well I think it is a good thing the government started to bring in all these stuffs to our country as it was already a popular trend in the more advance countries such as China where paying using electronic apps is already a norm. And right now you can reload your phone credit also with just using an app which is called Boost with high efficiency as you can received the phone credit within a few second after the transaction was completed.

Well the problem is sometimes we are just unable to go to the shop personally as maybe due to short of time or weather issue. So if you have to make an emergency call but your phone is out of credit or expired, you can just reload directly using the Boost app which is supported by more than 17 banks in our country.

Some maybe but so far from my experience using Boost app never meet this problem loh, always able to proceed my transaction smoothly without any hassle to go to the shop to buy my Steam gift cards which by the way are sold a price higher than the one bought through the Boost app.

Hmm looks like there is another Boost user here. How many points have you accumulated so far? Mind is almost enough to exchange for two vouchers already haha, a very nice feature offered by them where besides reloading you can get free vouchers also.

I think paying through electronic method is quite a nice change, and also no need to bring so much cash out already.

ya exactly , i've heard that for boost app , once you download the drive of boost app or sign it up or an account , you also be able to get free credit top up in your account and the free credit is up to rm 8 , which you already get rm 8 before you start to top up , what a great deal

it actually do effect our daily life in many ways , it can effect our daily life like when you wish to buy some things , but you don't have a car plus theres no any public transportation nearby , this things might help you to settle things like that where you can buy things online by using electronic app , which is so much easier than you have to drive to that particular store and buy things ,it is a good thing i can say
