MPay broadens service to include seven new overseas payment platforms

Users who travel overseas will now have the option to make e-payments through the mobile application in Italy, Singapore, Mongolia, Malaysia and South Korea.
Users of Macao’s electronic payment platform MPay will now have access to seven new overseas e-wallets, thanks to an expansion in the service’s Alipay+ offerings.  According to an announcement, the digital wallets now available for use are: Tinaba (Italy), MyPB by Public Bank (Malaysia), Hipay (Mongolia), OCBC and Changi Pay (Singapore), as well as Toss Pay and NAVER Pay (South Korea).  With this latest update, MPay now supports international digital payment in over forty countries, including Portugal, Australia, Japan, the Philippines and the US.  [See more: Electronic payment app MPay will be accepted in more than 40 countries next year] The Alipay+ payment QR code allows MPay users who are overseas to seamlessly make electronic transactions with businesses that recognise the payment method.  Macau Pass’s announcement noted that the new functionality would help create “an interconnected international payment digital ecosystem for the Macao market” and help solve the issue of cross-border payments for international travellers. MPay is the leading digital wallet application among Macao residents, who account for more than 90 percent of its registered users. Macau Pass has been a subsidiary of the Alibaba-owned company AGTech Holdings since it was acquired in 2022.  —With reporting by Kenny Fong
