Looking for a way to easily pay for your purchases while travelling? Well if you’re travelling to Thailand or Singapore, you can now make QR payments while travelling thanks to BigPay!

BigPay announced that Malaysian BigPay users can now make cashless and cardless payments cross-border payments with its latest DuitNow cross border payment feature in both Singapore and Thailand.

The payment app is one of the first few to introduce this new feature.  They aim to make travel payments a breeze by providing a seamless QR payment service.

“As travel returns to pre-pandemic levels and we see a refreshed desire from our customers to travel,  especially in the Southeast Asian region, we remain committed to providing a seamless payment  experience when they travel,” said Zubin Rada Krishnan, CEO of BigPay.

In order to access this feature, BigPay users have the option to either by simply topping up their BigPay account. Just select to pay via DuitNow QR cross-border payment, or via the BigPay Visa card when abroad.

These payments will only work with any ‘SGQR QR code’ by NETS in Singapore and ‘Thai QR Payment’ QR code by PromptPay in Thailand.

The BigPay cross-border QR payment method is the latest addition to the existing BigPay’s Visa card payment and ATM withdrawals. Malaysian travellers to Singapore and Thailand will now have more options on how they want to pay for their purchases while travelling.

“With our new DuitNow cross border QR payment feature, our users now have a payment method, on top of our Visa debit card, so they  can worry less about cash when travelling to Singapore and Thailand.

“They’ll be able to top-up their BigPay  and spend immediately when they land- whether it’s via PromptPay for Som Tum, or NetsQR for satay!” added Zubin Rada Krishnan.

In the press release, it also mentioned that BigPay is looking to make this same feature available in Indonesia as well in the coming weeks.
