Scope

  • Malaysia's payment card market has recorded strong uptake in contactless technology, with all major banks including Maybank, Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN), CIMB Bank, Public Bank, and Hong Leong Bank now offering contactless cards. The number of contactless POS terminals stood at 33,721 in 2016, increasing almost sevenfold from 4,839 terminals in 2015. To further encourage contactless payments, banks are launching innovative products. Maybank collaborated with Visa in January 2016 to launch an NFC wristband, Maybank Visa Payband, to enable its customers to make payments with a wave of the wrist.
  • A growing preference for secure electronic payments, growth in the young population, and deeper smartphone penetration have prompted banks, payment service providers, and telecom companies to launch new payment solutions to gain market share. Samsung Electronics, CIMB Bank, and Maybank all launched mobile wallets between 2016 and 2017.
  • To provide impetus to the e-commerce market, the Malaysian government implemented the DFTZ as part of the National E-commerce Strategic Roadmap. Launched in March 2017, this is a national initiative developed by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation in partnership with Alibaba that aims to support digital services, international e-commerce, and internet-based innovations.
