e-Duit Raya guide

If there is one thing that Malaysians have in common, it is the culture of giving. No matter the background, the act of giving is thoroughly embedded within the Malaysian identity. Once again, the festive and charitable mood is in the air this Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

While we all want to celebrate this festive season with our family and loved ones, not everyone can be home for the holidays. Many Malaysians will still need to be on duty or unable to travel home for Hari Raya.

Fortunately, we live in an interconnected digital age that offers solutions to work around this issue. Many banks and e-wallets now offer the option of transferring e-Duit Raya for our festive needs.

Even if we are kept apart, the introduction of digital transfers means that nothing can stop our charitable nature. Here are a few options for all your e-Duit Raya needs:


The Malaysian banking transfer app with a catchy name! DuitNow is an inter-bank money transfer service that intends to make it easy to send funds to your friends and family. Since its launch in 2018, it has become the go to app for fund transfers.

It doesn’t matter if you are using Maybank, RHB, Standard Chartered, etc. DuitNow makes money transfers from account to account easy and convenient. You don’t need to have your bank account number memorised. The system works by associating your bank account with a more commonly used identification number, such as an IC or mobile number.

Transferring e-Duit-Raya via the app is just as simple as fund transfers. Either key in the recipient’s details associated with their bank account, or simply scan the easily prepared QR code within the app and you are done!

Touch ‘n Go eWallet

Touch ‘n Go eWallet allows you to easily view your TNG card balance; and if you are using the brand new NFC cards, reload it when needed. It also serves as an e-wallet that is becoming ever more widespread throughout the country.

If you want to transfer e-Duit Raya via the app, all you need is the recipient’s phone number or QR code, which can be downloaded as an image. You can also check out the ongoing promotions for the festive season through the app.

The app also comes with a number of other perks, such as Go+, which allows you to earn daily returns with your balance. This makes the app an excellent recommendation for your digital transfer and payment needs, even outside of the festive season.


GrabPay is among the most versatile of e-wallets on the market. As mentioned previously, credit that has been loaded into the e-wallet can be used for ride hailing, food deliveries and more.

This makes GrabPay an excellent choice for transferring e-Duit Raya. The Grab app also tends to constantly have promotions and discounts rotating throughout its offerings, so keep an eye out for their Raya deals.


The Boost app is another e-wallet that is popular among Malaysians. Not only does Boost serve as an easy and convenient way to transfer e-Duit-Raya, the app offers a whole range of options on how you can spend it.
