SINGAPORE Telecommunications Ltd (Singtel) said it has expanded the merchant list on its mobile payment app Dash to include leading online retailer Lazada Singapore.
This was made possible after it partnered with helloPay, the fintech (financial services technology) platform of Rocket Internet’s Lazada Group, Singtel said in a statement.
“It has been an exciting year for Dash as we continue to grow our merchant network with homegrown partners and collaborating with transit operators,” said Gan Siok Hoon, vice president of mobile-commerce, Consumer Singapore, Singtel.
“Dash has evolved into a dynamic multi-mode payment option. We have widened our reach beyond physical establishments into the vibrant online payments ecosystem so our customers can pay for a greater slew of products and services at their convenience,” she added.

Lazada Singapore offers more than one million products that range from household appliances and consumer electronics to apparel and jewellery.
Dash customers will receive 5% cashback on all of their Lazada purchases until Dec 31, 2015, Singtel said.
“At Lazada Singapore, we constantly strive to provide an effortless shopping experience to our customers,” said its chief executive officer Martell Hardenberg.
“Dash is an exciting step towards enhancing this and we are excited to bring forward this partnership through helloPay,” he added.
To make payments on Lazada Singapore, customers only need to select the helloPay option upon checkout, choose the Dash payment mode, and log in with their mobile number and PIN (personal identification number).
Singtel claims that Dash has the largest mobile payment merchant network in Singapore with over 20,000 acceptance points, including Watsons, Food Republic, KOI, 7-Eleven and Topshop.
Dash can also be used to pay for ComfortDelGro taxi rides without the usual administrative fees levied by other cashless payment methods.
The Dash app has also been enhanced with new features including Samsung Fingerprint Scanner and Apple Touch ID authentication to provide an even more user-friendly payment experience, the telco giant said.
The app is free to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play. For more information, visit www.dash.com.sg.
