KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 3): Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is partnering ManagePay Systems Bhd (MPay) and Mastercard to develop a digital prepaid card for online transactions.

In a joint statement today, Digi, MPay and Mastercard said the card will be made available to the public in the first half of this year.

"The partnership entails the development of a digital prepaid card, which will be made available to the public in the first half of this year, to enable access for more young Malaysians to make digital payments online and in-app across merchant locations that accept Mastercard worldwide.

"The card will be designed for those who prefer the convenience of online transactions when making their purchases. Customers can sign-up, activate and use the card all within a single mobile app as part of a simple, safe and secure end-to-end digital experience," they said.
