[WARNING]

1. If you want to transfer out the money from your Boost Wallet to your bank account, PLEASE REMEMBER to key in your bank account number CORRECTLY, a simple careless mistake will cause your money to be transferred to someone else.

[THREAD RULES]

1. Please try to stay on topic and not derail the thread
2. Please don't share promotions from other e wallets in here other than Boost itself. Sharing is caring, but sharing irrelevant stuffs in here is out of our caring. You can do so in threads dedicated to that particular e wallet.
3. No arguments please, you can argue in /k, not here.
4. No cursing, cursing might help you express your stress or shock, but you're in the risk of getting reported and banned so there's no point of that.
5. Please keep this thread as friendly and healthy as possible.

[TYPICAL EXCUSES & SCENARIOS FROM STAFF THAT REFUSES YOUR PAYMENT WITH BOOST]

1. "System down"
2. "Ada problem"
3. "System ada problem"
4. "Tak boleh pakai"
5. "Not ready yet"
6. Boost sticker is found at counter or entrance but staff refuses to accept the payment method and gives unreasonable and typical excuses
7. Merchant imposes a minimal amount for paying with Boost


[WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF STAFF REFUSES YOUR PAYMENT WITH BOOST]

1. Report about the issue to either Boost or the merchant itself. If you don't report it, doesn't mean others will.
2. If you haven't bought anything yet, you have the rights to not buy anything and walk away (usual scenario in shops and convenience stores).
3. If you wanna pay your bills after a meal, and staff refuses your payment with Boost, try demanding for proper explanation or meet with the supervisor/manager (usual scenario in restaurants and cafes).


E-wallet is a payment method just like any other usual payment methods, and shall not be treated differently!

Not really a supporter of Fave.
But a lot of F&B in Penang accepts Fave.
Try jumping to the bandwagon and let's see how it expands from here!

Which good boy reported this thread as spam?

At least let everything get settled first, you're not getting any medal for reporting anyways.

Boost in Finance section? I thought it will remain in /k because they don't want to move here? Anyway it's about time to have proper discussion here. smile.gif

How about other popular e-wallets like Fave, GrabPay and TnG e-wallet? Somebody should open too, I think currently Boost, Fave, GrabPay, TnG and WeChat Pay are the popular ones in Malaysia. hmm.gif

For TnG related discussion, we have two running threads at the sub-section of Credit Card/Debit Card/Loyalty Card.
I think no value of opening another separate for TnG e-wallet.

P/S: Just my 2 cents ...

Yeah, makes sense. I haven't been visiting that thread so if it has e-wallet discussion, then we do not need a duplicate topic.

Back to this topic, I haven't been using Boost for some time. Missing the 50% cash back deal. sad.gif

Weirdly, Favepay merchants are reducing a little bit in KL, some merchants that used to accept Favepay stopped doing so.

Grabpay thread, so far there's none but wouldn't hurt to open one if anyone is passionate about it. icon_idea.gif

I asked fellow Boost users in that thread to share some opinions on whether to open a V2 in Finance section or not, quite a few agreed. so decided to do so. Sometimes the previous thread could get out of hand, people argue sometimes, abusers getting proud of themselves, and many more. Also, since there are two e wallet discussion threads in this section now, hope those who are interested will follow and open discussion threads for other e wallets as well.

iirc, hye did mention on ewallet TS to apply for topic creation. not sure the progress nowadays since few ewallet are getting off the ground with active discussions and promotions from emoney issuers.

e.g.

Boost, previously in /kopitiam, now in here thumbup.gif
TNG eWallet, slowly taking traction, currently lightly discussed in TNG Card topic
WeChat MY, already in progress here
BigPay in CC thread, some see it as either ewallet or prepaid card
GrabPay, little to none discussion. Fave, not sure if it's even considered as ewallet at all

should mods/admin create subforum for all ewallet discussions or keep as individual ewallet topics; either in Finance subforum or in CC subforum hmm.gif

Was gonna tag hye but gotta wait for the TS from V1 to close his Boost thread first, but thanks anyways. biggrin.gif

Also, BigPay is definitely not an e wallet, but more to a prepaid card issuer.

Favepay is more to mobile payment, but I guess can be related with e wallet cuz it's using similar kind of payment method by scanning the QR code, just that it deducts directly from our cards which is similar to Samsung Pay.
