The best part, you can open an MAE banking e-wallet account in less than 5 minutes. Just set it up online, no need to worry about filling up pages upon pages of documents.

MAE is part of the MaybankMY app, so all you have to do is download it to get started. Even if you're not a Maybank user, you can still sign up for MAE online without having to fill up pages of documents.

2. Top up your e-wallet easily

The nice thing about using MAE is that you can top up your e-wallet via FPX or debit card from any bank. This is great for parents who want to manage their children's expenses while still keeping their own bank accounts.

3. Send and receive money from your friends and family

Instead of having to verbally ask for money, you can now request for it directly through the app. This is the perfect way to bug your friends and family who still owe you money.

4. Split your bills on the spot
