Homegrown e-wallet app, Boost unveils new features
By Digital News Asia June 21, 2018
- Users can now pay parking fees at most major streets around the Klang Valley
- Payment of utility bills can now be made with Telekom Malaysia, Astro and Syabas
MALAYSIA’S homegrown e-wallet app, Boost announced new features on June 20. Boost introduced a key feature that will allow users to give back to society through its latest donation functionalities including Tabung Harapan and Tabung BERSAMAMU (by Media Prima).
Boost has over 2.5 million users with online and offline merchants located in over 25,000 merchant touchpoints. The new features will allow users to pay for parking at most major streets around the Klang Valley and pay utility bills with partners such as Telekom Malaysia, Astro and Syabas. Users can also enjoy instant shake rewards after each payment as well as set auto-reminders.
These new features will complement the current services of buying prepaid top ups and digital vouchers as well as gifting, free money transfers, top up for others and even “Go Dutch” with its unique split bills feature.
“We are always working towards providing the best experience for our users with our features and services. This was one of the many reasons why we introduced Tabung Harapan and Tabung BERSAMAMU (by Media Prima) into our list of organisations for Boost users to contribute towards.
“In addition to that, for every 10th shake reward, Boost has pledged to donate RM1 to Tabung Harapan, which will run until the end of Raya. As a homegrown e-wallet, we felt it was important for us to facilitate and be an integral part of giving back through #DoGoodWithBoost.
“We hope to further our working relationship with our partners and continue our efforts in contributing to causes that we and our Boost users believe in,” said Boost chief executive officer Christopher Tiffin (pic).
Boost also introduced “Boost Cup 2018” in conjunction with the 2018 FIFA World Cup where users can Watch, Play & Win as well as show their love and knowledge of the game by guessing the winner of each match. At the end of the competition, users stand a chance to win their share of RM90,000 in cash prizes in their Boost Wallet.
