Maybank Mobile Money – Makes Paying Anyone so Much Easier
Meiling and I have been friends for 14 years, we knew each other from Secondary school. I still remember we will always travel to school together and every Saturday, I will wait for her to finish her choir before we head out to eat and play.
Even though both of us are super busy with our own work and life now, we still meet up. In fact, we meet up very often recently. Because we stay very near to each other, we meet every week at AMK Hub to have some tea time snacks together. I am a huge fan of Gelare, especially on Tuesdays when they are having half price. But Meiling said she hasn’t tried Fruit Paradise, so last Saturday, we went to Fruit Paradise together.
We are a huge fan of mango and banana, so this mango and banana fruit tart ($6.80) is the perfect choice for us.
I wanted something brighter to welcome the lovely Saturday, so I ordered a Strawberry Tiramisu ($6.80) as well.
Believe it a not, Meiling doesn’t have mobile banking. Her reason is, so she will think twice about online shopping. True in a way lah, but mobile banking makes things so much easier and faster! Especially now there is Maybank Mobile Money (MMM)!
Yes! Maybank Mobile Money (MMM) allows the Sender (Maybank customer) to send money via his mobile phone to anyone with a local mobile number. MMM is available via Maybank Mobile Banking App (search for ’Maybank SG’ in App Store or Google Play). Because Meiling foot the bill, I paid half of it to her via MMM. To send funds via MMM, you have to be a Maybank Online Banking customer. Activation of service via Security Token (Transaction signing) is required. But… Any party can be a Collector! You need not be a Maybank customer! How cool is that!
This MMM is super safe because in order for Meiling to collect the money, I have to give her the PIN provided by the bank. So let’s say if you send the money to a wrong mobile number, you don’t have to worry because the other party cannot collect the money without the PIN.
For Meiling, she just have to download the App, key in the transaction code that is sent to her mobile phone and get my PIN, whoola~ she can collect the money! Super easy right!
This MMM is so easy to use and payment can now be made to a mobile number. We can collect the funds into any local bank account or credit/debit card (by December ’13), which is super convenient. No need to provide his/her bank account information to the sender, this is better than interbank fund transfer, cheque and cash. As this is a micro-payment money transfer service, sender can only transfer a maximum of S$500. The service is free to both Sender and Collector.
When can you use MMM?
• Pay for your child’s lessons/tuitions
• Pay the plumber and other home service providers
• Pay for your online shopping from Facebook, Instagram, blog shop sellers
• Share the cost of a gift or split the restaurant bill with friends and many more
