ShopeePay Malaysia head Alain Yee said, “We are honoured to collaborate with the Finance Ministry again after a very positive response from Malaysian youths last year.
“As a company that puts consumers first, we are constantly innovating to serve our users. Through ePemula, we are happy to be given a chance to encourage more Malaysian youths to embrace going cashless and use ShopeePay to experience the convenience and security and rewards that our mobile wallet has to offer.
“We also believe that the programme will play a bigger role to simultaneously generate economic activity and sales for local merchants and traders.
“As more Malaysian consumers enter the cashless ecosystem, smaller businesses like convenience stores, local cafes and micro-traders will also see the need to adopt cashless payment methods as part of their operations to ensure that they are not left behind. This digital push will be a win for the country’s digital economy,” added Yee.
In addition to the rewards, ShopeePay ePemula claimants can also participate in the #ShopeeEPEMULAsquad Challenge and stand a chance to win some cool prizes worth up to RM25,000.
