With the Movement Control Order (MCO) limiting our social interactions, we've been relying on online services more than ever to get things done

From ordering food delivery to sending little surprises to our loved ones, we've been doing it all online.

We're grateful that there are all kinds of services out there that let us carry out our daily tasks from the comfort of our homes. The convenience of these services have truly been a huge help in these times.

Yay for things like online banking that allow us to continue social distancing while still getting things done!

Let's be honest, we've all probably seen DuitNow when we do our online banking, but how many of us actually use it?

DuitNow is a payment service that gives you an easier, faster, and more secure way to transfer money. It works exactly like an instant transfer, except you don't need to know the bank account number of the person you're trying to send money to. It lets you instantly transfer money to anyone, by simply keying in their phone number!

It's especially handy for group transactions. When you and your friends are all chipping in to get a birthday present, or when you're sharing with your siblings to treat your parents to something special, it's usually soooo mafan to get everyone to transfer money to each other.

But now, it'll be super easy! #StayAtHome and pay food sellers and for all kinds of services just by keying in their mobile number or business registration number, instead of a 12-digit account number. Especially with Raya coming up soon, you can use DuitNow to pay for your favourite festive goodies or even to send duit raya.

The best part about DuitNow is that you don't have to download anything extra, as it's not a separate app on its own

Instead, it sits within your bank's official app or Internet banking website.

A wide variety of banks currently support DuitNow. This includes CIMB, Citibank, Hong Leong Bank, HSBC, Maybank, Public Bank, RHB, UOB, and more. As DuitNow works in tandem with the banks themselves, you can trust that using it is just as safe and secure as using your bank's official services.

From now until 26 May 2020, you could win a Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 when you transfer money with DuitNow!
