The e-Wallet also includes options to link debit/credit cards/bank account, topping up, receiving and transferring cash to other E-wallet users, and e-Voucher rewards. Paying with 1PAY will also earn you instant ONECARD loyalty points.

Aside from 1 Utama, 1PAY can also be used at other Bandar Utama merchants such as One World Hotel, Centrepoint, and The Club.
