Bank Cards That Support Apple Pay, Google Pay, And Samsung Pay

Cashless payments have become more acceptable with many Malaysians preferring to use contactless payments for their day-to-day spending.

While there are a ton of ways that you can do contactless payments, such as using your credit card, you can now also use your smartphone or smartwatch to make payments as well.

Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay have all officially launched their services in Malaysia, however, not all banks support them yet. So, if you’re thinking of going fully smart pay, here’s a list of banks that support them currently.

Apple Pay

iPhone and Apple Watch users can now officially use Apple Pay in Malaysia. However, since they are relatively new in Malaysia, there are not a lot of banks that support them.

Currently, there are only 4 banks which you can use Apple Pay with:

  • Maybank
  • Ambank
  • Standard Chartered
  • HSBC

One thing to note is that only Maybank supports debit and credit cards for Apple Pay. Ambank, Standard Chartered, and HSBC only support Visa and Mastercard credit cards.

Google Pay

Just like Apple Pay, Google Pay has only recently launched in Malaysia on November 2022. And as you can expect, not a lot of banks support the service yet.

And just like Apple Pay, there are only 4 banks that support Google Pay:

  • CIMB
  • Hong Leong Bank
  • HSBC
  • Public Bank

Similarly, not all bank cards can be used on Google Pay. CIMB only allows Mastercard credit cards while HSBC and Hong Leong Bank work for all cards. Public Bank works for all cards except Public Bank RCB Elite or RCB Gold debit cards, Lifestyle Mastercard debit cards, and Lifestyle Union Pay debit cards.

Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay has been around the longest in Malaysia with the service launching back in 2017. Because of that, they have more banks supporting Samsung Pay compared to Apple or Google.

While it doesn’t have all local bank support, it does have a higher number of banks compared to Apple or Google with 7 banks providing payments services using Samsung Pay:

  • CIMB
  • Hong Leong Bank
  • HSBC
  • Maybank
  • Public Bank
  • RHB Bank
  • Standard Chartered

And just like Apple Pay and Google Pay, the service is limited to certain types of cards. RHB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, and Maybank support all credit and debit cards while Public Bank support all cards except Public Bank RCB Elite or RCB Gold debit cards, Lifestyle Mastercard debit cards, and Lifestyle Union Pay debit cards.

Standard Chartered and HSBC bank only support credit cards while with CIMB you can use credit and prepaid cards.
