I can’t be the only one curious about other people’s online purchasing habits, right? 😛
Recently, I asked the RoR community on Facebook about the last thing they bought online. There were some really great answers, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to share those here, because they’re fun to read! Plus, lots of money-saving tips too! You guys make me proud!
Bought Cheaper Items/Services Online
1. Gina Ee – “A face guasa board from Lazada for only RM8 per piece, instead of about RM20 sold offline. It’s a resin board made for traditional Chinese method facial and body massage.”
As a finance geek, I enjoy trying out new fintech products, including ewallets. It’s fun exploring what kind of perks and cashbacks each of them offer.
Ewallets in Malaysia – The Current Scenario
There are many companies trying to enter and compete in the ewallets scene in Malaysia. Last I checked, BNM listed 37 non-bank e-money issuers. I’m sure that list will keep growing in the next few years.
In time, I think we will see a few clear winners in this ewallet race, like what happened with Alipay in China. But for now, potential customers like you and me can have fun and enjoy being courted by these companies. Some of them are pretty generous with their welcome or referral bonuses – good for us!
Here are reviews of all the ewallets in Malaysia that I’ve tried out so far, and what I like about them. I have excluded banks and crypto ewallets from this list.
