GrabPay DuitNow QR Starts Rolling Out In Stores, Official Launch Coming Soon?
Author Avatar

GrabPay’s DuitNow QR implementation appears to have gone live, as several retail outlets in the Klang Valley have begun displaying the pink DuitNow QR code that allows interoperable use with other e-wallets.

Despite being the first e-wallet to officially announce support for DuitNow QR, Malaysia’s unified QR standard, GrabPay is actually the last of the three major e-wallets in Malaysia to officially roll out its DuitNow QR code, with Touch ‘n Go eWallet, ShopeePay, and more recently, Boost already rolling them out.

We first noticed some outlets that accept GrabPay replacing its usual green-coloured QR to the new pink DuitNow QR yesterday, but we found social media posts on this over the weekend as well. With this QR code, anyone using GrabPay, TNG eWallet, ShopeePay, Boost, MAE, and other online banking apps that support DuitNow QR (there’s a full list available here) can scan it and make a payment. Conversely, a GrabPay user can also scan a non-GrabPay DuitNow QR code to make payment – meaning a store or merchant does not need to sign up with all e-wallet apps to accept payment from that particular e-wallet.

However, there is a catch. If a customer scans a non-GrabPay DuitNow QR and makes a payment, that transaction will not earn any GrabRewards Points. A GrabPay user will only earn points if they scan the GrabPay DuitNow QR code (which may explain why there’s a message to “scan me to earn GrabRewards Points” above the QR code). We’ve seen this pattern before – previously, a TNG eWallet user who scans a non-TNG eWallet DuitNow QR code will not see that transaction eligible for its rewards stamp.

With the rollout to its merchants, we expect GrabPay to make its official announcement soon – DuitNow’s official website has also been updated to include GrabPay.
