Did you know that you can order food on your MAE app by Maybank2u?

Mmhmm, that's right! More than just your everyday banking app, MAE lets you order food and even groceries through Sama-Sama Lokal, a feature that supports small businesses.

The feature was previously available on the Maybank M2U app. And with this recent launch on MAE, you'll get to order food on top of using the app like your usual digital wallet to pay bills and transfer money.

Here's why you should consider Sama-Sama Lokal on your MAE app the next time you want to order food:

1. Merchants get to keep all of their earnings (yup, 100% of it! :D), so you can enjoy a variety of offerings at a lower price point

What's extra special about Sama-Sama Lokal is that merchants on the platform aren't charged any commission by Maybank.

From Instagram bakers to sundry shop uncles, this advantage allows small-scale business owners to focus more on the product or service they can offer, and worry less about profit margins. 

And from a customer's standpoint, you'll get to enjoy better value on the app, since merchants don't need to markup their prices to compensate for charged commission. :D

2. Discover local gems and choose from a wide range of small merchants

There are over 14,000 Sama-Sama Lokal merchants available on the MAE app for you to choose from. 

Whether it's a home based seller, roadside stall, local hawker for simple comfort foods, or even a nearby kedai runcit for your groceries, you'll have plenty of options at your fingertips.

Plus, there's also the added perk of discovering neighbourhood gems typically not found on other platforms. So, here's a chance for you to explore what hidden goodies you have around you, be it for lunch or dinner, heheh. ;)

3. Reap the benefits of a hassle-free payment process, right from your MAE digital wallet or any of your Maybank accounts

Now that your MAE app is upgraded with a food delivery feature, paying for your orders is a breeze. Payments not only undergo a secure process, but are convenient to make as well.

Once your payment goes through, you'll receive real-time updates on your order, and will get to tuck into delicious local meals in no time. 

Here's some extra bit of good news — in conjunction with the new launch, you'll get to enjoy special discounts of up to 40%, wheee!

From now until 31 December 2022, just use the promo code 'FOODONMAE' to enjoy up to 40% off (capped at RM8) and up to RM10 off your delivery fee. 

So, whatchu waiting for? If you can't wait to try something new, and not to mention, help out your neighbourhood peeps, jom order from the MAE app!
