- Digi Business customers gain TNG e-Wallet digital marketing channels
- TNG merchants get benefits when taking up Digi’s Penjana product
DIGI Business and TNG Digital have joined forces in a bid to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) digitalise and grow their business with digital solutions, always-on connectivity and e-wallet facilities.
The partnership enables Digi Business and TNG Digital’s MSMEs customers to enjoy benefits from both parties, Digi said in a statement.
Digi Business customers who choose to onboard their business with Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet will be featured on the latter’s digital marketing channels, which the Digi claimed will help boost visibility of their business, effectively reaching out to over 15 million Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet users nationwide.
Each merchant who successfully signs up as a TNG merchant and takes up Digi’s Penjana product will also receive a US$12 (RM50) Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet reload PIN from Digi Business, and a free business starter kit from TNG Digital to kick-start and progress them along in their digitalisation journey.

Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet merchants, which choose to take up Digi Business’ all-in-one Business plans to stay connected at work or on-the-go, will enjoy up to 30% off their bills and can claim up to RM6,000 through the Penjana SME Digitalisation Grant.
Digi Business will act as a one-stop processing centre by carrying out the application process for potential customers from beginning to end, easing the journey so customers can focus on the operations of the business, Digi said.
Customers only need to mix and match between three and five lines from Digi Business’ Postpaid, Fibre or WiFi plans to unlock the savings.
They can also obtain either the Digital Marketing (inclusive of AVANA Social Commerce and dSMS) or Digital Productivity Bundle (inclusive of virtual office hotline Omni and HR management system altHR) for free under the Penjana grant.
“A robust digital ecosystem for SMEs includes having access to a fast and secure network connectivity, relevant and best-in-value digital solutions and tools, and a convenient e-wallet platform to facilitate online retail transactions,” said Eugene Teh, Digi’s chief business officer.
“Through this partnership, both Digi Business and TNG Digital will be able to leverage each other’s expertise to provide well-rounded packages for the benefit of MSMEs. This further strengthens Digi Business’ commitment to be a trusted digital partner to MSMEs.”
Ignatius Ong, chief executive officer of TNG Digital, said: “We are honoured to team up with Digi Business to initiate solutions for the businesses to grow and expand, leveraging on our over 15 million user base.
“The Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet is a brand many Malaysians have ingrained into their daily lives. We will continuously develop as the rakyat moves into the next era of digitalisation – assisting MSMEs grow, and making it our key focus to elevate the economy by enabling simple and impactful solutions.”
