E-Wallet – The future of on-the-go payments

Why are e-wallets the future of on-the-go payments?

We have all heard the age-old saying that cash is king. However, in the past few years, e-wallets have taken the scene by storm, and from the look of things, they might be going for the throne.

Malaysia was introduced to the e-wallet scene back in 2017. Fast forward 6 years later and we now have over 50 different e-wallets used all over the country. 

This, however, is only the beginning. The world of fintech is constantly evolving, with new technology being implemented every few months. It is needless to say that fintech and e-wallets, in particular, are the future of our everyday transactions.

Despite that, many are still not convinced. Questions like “How would it benefit me?” and “Is it even safe?” pop up every day. In this article, we will be exploring the benefits of e-wallets and how they may make your everyday transactions much more convenient.

Safety and Security

Security of your finances has always been a menace to society from robberies and snatch thieves to scams and stolen cards. While a wallet can easily be stolen, it isn’t that simple when it comes to e-wallets.

E-wallets nowadays are heavily encrypted and password protected. Even with a stolen phone, it would be tough for these thieves to get through to your e-wallets.


You’re standing at the cashier when you realise that you do not have enough cash for the payment. You proceed to whip out your card but that pesky machine is having problems again.

These awkward situations can be avoided with the usage of e-wallets. With a smartphone and internet access, these transactions can be done in a matter of seconds with a few taps. In this modern era, smartphones have become a norm and internet coverage is practically everywhere. E-wallet transactions have also grown tremendously with most stores offering a variety of e-wallet payment options.

Other than store payments, e-wallets also provide other forms of transaction services. Utility bill payments, money transfers, telco payments, parking fees and the list goes on. E-wallets enable users to experience a one-stop-shop experience when using them.
