WeChat Pay is finally ready to be unveiled to all Malaysians. This successful e-wallet has changed the way China approaches payment, and it hopes to have a similar impact in shaping Malaysia’s payment infrastructure.

Here are a few things you can do with WeChat Pay MY:

1. Pay for stuff without using your physical wallet

All you have to do is link your debit card to your WeChat Pay MY account. Once that’s done, you can top up your e-wallet balance and start purchasing things with WeChat Pay MY at both online and offline outlets. You can even reload your mobile prepaid card and book bus or flight tickets within the app itself.

And what's cooler is that an offline payment feature has been launched recently, with KK Super Mart being the first chain store in Malaysia to accept WeChat Pay MY.

2. Send and receive money with Money Packet

Whether you’re sending money home to family or splitting the lunch table bill, Money Packet is an in-app feature that allows you to conveniently make payments between individuals or groups. Besides facilitating payments, Money Packet is also a way to express good wishes. So next time you plan on packing an angpow or duit raya, save the packet and send it via Money Packet.

3. Withdraw your e-wallet balance at any bank in Malaysia

After receiving money on WeChat Pay MY, you can withdraw the balance any time to your local or foreign bank account in Malaysia. The best thing about it is the zero processing fee.

In conjunction with its official launch, WeChat Pay MY has rolled out a Random Money Packet campaign on 21 August that will go on till 28 August 2018

On the first day of the campaign itself, the response has been overwhelming. Many lucky users got to redeem Money Packets, but some didn't manage to. WeChat Pay MY will be providing everyone with another chance today, so make sure you give it a shot. If you snooze, you lose!

All you have to do is click on the Money Packets that show up on your WeChat Moments, and you’ll get a chance to redeem a Money Packet worth up to RM88.88
