  • Malaysia’s payment card market has recorded strong uptake in
    contactless technology, with all major banks including Maybank, Bank
    Simpanan Nasional (BSN), CIMB Bank, Public Bank, and Hong Leong Bank
    now offering contactless cards. The number of contactless POS
    terminals stood at 33,721 in 2016, increasing almost sevenfold from
    4,839 terminals in 2015. To further encourage contactless payments,
    banks are launching innovative products. Maybank collaborated with
    Visa in January 2016 to launch an NFC wristband, Maybank Visa Payband,
    to enable its customers to make payments with a wave of the wrist.
  • A growing preference for secure electronic payments, growth in the
    young population, and deeper smartphone penetration have prompted
    banks, payment service providers, and telecom companies to launch new
    payment solutions to gain market share. Samsung Electronics, CIMB
    Bank, and Maybank all launched mobile wallets between 2016 and 2017.
  • To provide impetus to the e-commerce market, the Malaysian government
    implemented the DFTZ as part of the National E-commerce Strategic
    Roadmap. Launched in March 2017, this is a national initiative
