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
*
I may have overlooked but I don't think he is one of the mods for this section. Only for CC sub-section I think. Anyway, since FusionX has created e-wallet tag in this section, I don't see why one cannot open here?

xperiaDROID, please tag this thread under e-wallet.

I just went to one 99 speedmart trying to use boost for payment. The manager was in the store but she asked “tak boleh guna cash me” in a somehow rude way. And I am still thinking that the cashier there has been trained now since it is already quite some time since 99speedmart is boosted

Previously many told me to tag hye for that.

I would say give up on paying with Boost in 99 speedmart, according to many who tried it, only 1/10 times is successful.

You can try reporting though.

Yeah. I probably replied the same.

"Kalau u kasi I discount I pakai cash. Kalau x boleh, I nak pakai eWallet. Kalau masih x bagi pakai. I nak nama you manager kasi report HQ."

Yes, agreed to complain to Boost beramai-ramai and let Boost know about the "incompetence" of 99 Speedmart as a Boost merchant. Maybe Boost can arrange intensive training for them. rolleyes.gif

I only pay for Fave using Boost once my AMEX quota has been filled up.

use fave-amex on weekends and fave-boost on weekdays

today i just used boost for Rm60 purchase in 11street. lousy shake reward at Rm1 ( equivalent to 1.67% cb). if not because of the Rm5 cb promo for Rm60 in 11street, i normally amex for confirmed 5% cb on weekend.

I'll try fully update the thread tonight, sorry if it looks rushed.

If you have any suggestions on what to add, do post here and lemme know. smile.gif

to include info about wallet topup/spending/withdrawal limit for standard and premium accounts, so that newbies can just refer to the 1st page and no need to ask so many times here.

QUOTE(cybpsych @ Nov 25 2018, 05:36 PM)
I saw v1 already closed.

also fave doesnt seems to store monetary value, just cc bypass. not really true ewallet. agreed, more like payment app.

for fave, all cb and refund money go automatically to ”my cashback” section, similar to lazada

No way. You can't even use any Fave promo code and enjoy cashback if pay with Fave credits.

While Boost and T&G apps, you can use cashback to pay and earn cashback.

Fave cash back is troublesome.
It has two types: general cash back and merchant specific cash back.

Sorry I misunderstood what car_computer said "use fave-amex on weekends and fave-boost on weekdays".
So it is buy Fave but pay with Amex on weekend n pay with Boost on weekdays.

there are differences between open-loop and close-loop mobile payment apps/systems.

those with close-loop is whereby the "money" and earned cashback/reward must be used for its own (merchant-specific). e.g. starbucks reward card. nobody called it ewallet. reason is you reload into it, use within sbux, and earn rewards within sbux too. you cannot use sbux credit for other things. iinm, fave and lazada wallet is the same. fave charge via cc passthrough. the new petronas setel app is the same too, can only use to pump at petronas, nothing else.

those truly ewallet is whereby it's open-loop, the credit/rewards can be used outside of its own domain/ecosystem. e.g. boost, tng ewallet, grabpay etc.

Are they using smartphone or tablet?
If they're using CC terminal extension like GHL at Tesco, then more counters can support.

ya... in the beginning i was very confused about fave cb and also favedeal vs favepay
through some mistakes made and frequent usages nowadays, i am rather familar with fave

favedeal cb goes to “fave cashback” section, which will be given after 3 days, and will be automatically used to offset next favedeal or favepay transaction.

favepay cb goes to “partner cashback” section instantly, which will be used for next purchase in the same specific merchant/brand (acceptable in different outlets, but must be under the same merchant brand ). partner cb is kinda useless if u dont go back to the same merchant.

i use fave-boost for weekdays and fave-amex for weekends to optimize cb

anyway off topic here. hope there is a dedicated fave thread to discuss favepay and favedeal, and also fave discount codes smile.gif
