Is Apple Pay Launching In Malaysia Soon?
Author Avatar

It seems that Apple Pay may finally be launching in Malaysia soon, as there are hints that Apple and at least one local bank is currently testing its functionality.

Local tech site Lowyat.NET reported that AmBank may be testing Apple Pay integration after an SMS was sent to one of its cardholders, clearly indicating Apple Pay pairing. The SMS even contained a URL for Apple Pay on AmBank’s website, but that page is not yet available. Both Apple and AmBank also did not respond to Lowyat.NET’s queries on the matter, as of the time of writing.

Our own checks on Lowyat’s forum, meanwhile, found further hints of the possibility of Apple Pay arriving soon in Malaysia. Another forumer stated that he/she already has access to Apple Pay via both iPhone and Apple Watch in Malaysia – and that that Apple Pay may actually be enabled within the country as early as August 2022, supporting local cards issued by Malaysian financial institutions.

If these details are true, then there’s plenty to be excited about, especially since Apple Pay is a frequently requested feature by Apple users in Malaysia. There were even petitions signed in order to support the request, although it has come to nothing – so far.

However, until there are actual announcements from banks indicating that they have officially enabled support for Apple Pay, this matter remains at most hearsay. But we will continue to keep an eye out for any further developments, and share further updates.
