Maybank recently launched a new e-wallet – Maybank Anywhere Everyone (MAE) that is different than other e-wallets we have in the market. Maybank really step-up the game in getting not only Maybank account holders but non-Maybank users too to use it. Here are a few interesting pointers about MAE.
1. You don’t need a Maybank account
The very interesting and unique aspect of MAE is that everyone can download the e-wallet and use it. It is perhaps a subtle way of promoting the bank’s services to non-Maybank customers.
The action is actually a way of supporting the government’s drive towards electronic payments. Simply download the app and use any bank account to top up.
2. Your own virtual Visa card
Having the MAE app will allow you to get a virtual Visa card where you can use it with either Maybank Pay or Samsung Pay. You will receive a dedicated number, expiry date and CVV code just like having a Visa card – but it just virtual.
But for existing Maybank account holder, you will likely already have a Visa-enabled debit/credit card linked to your account.
3. Send and receive money with just a click
Traditionally, we need to verbally ask to borrow or send the money. Get the person’s account number, log in to your bank account and transfer. With MAE, you can now request for it directly through the app. Simply request for an amount of money and if the receiver agree with the request, they can click on accept and it’s done!
4. Split a bill on the spot with your friends
One of the handy features is that you will be able to split up a bill between your friends easily. They don’t have to be MAE users – just split it and notify your friends via
Out for lunch with your friends or colleagues? Use your e-wallet to split the bill easily and share out the cost. This way, you won’t have to worry about who has to pay first!
5. Pay with Maybank QRPay at over 200,000 locations
The app allows you to pay for almost everything using QR Pay feature. Buying a movie ticket, having a dinner, doing grocery shopping? No more carrying cash around – just scan the QR code and you are good to go.
6. The limit is set at RM4,999
Another thing that you might need to know is that MAE set the maximum limit at RM4,999. Well, it’s pretty much annoying if you were to make bigger purchase but the maximum limit is set as a safety feature. If you wish to set your own limit, you can do so by going to the setting and have your own cumulative cap as well as a daily limit.
5. Lastly, stand a chance to win prize up to RM1.2 million by playing game
The best feature of MAE is definitely the reward. You can stand a chance to win up to RM1.2 million in cash prizes when you refer your friends to download and use the e-wallet app.
To win the prize, you need to play a little game where you need to press on coins and avoid bombs. It’s interesting way to win some money rather than spending hours playing mobile games and getting nothing.
