Sarawak Pay, the Sarawak state government’s very own e-wallet app, has seen an uptick in usage as locals have begun to embrace the cashless lifestyle.

Since its implementation in November 2017, the Sarawak Pay app has recorded a total of 13,789,499 transactions worth RM588,252,980. As many as 443,396 people have signed up to use the app, with 64,254 registered traders in its current database.

“The enforcement of the Movement Control Order during the Covid-19 pandemic restricted movement and people had to stay at home. Seems that was the time that they began using Sarawak Pay,” said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

The Sarawak chief minister stated that Sarawak Pay was one of the initiatives introduced by the state government to transform Sarawak towards the digital economy.

“Sarawak Pay facilitates purchases and payments without the need for too much cash in the wallet,” said Abang Johari. He added that the largest market in the state, Sibu’s central market, was also the place with the highest number of traders using Sarawak Pay.
