JomPAY Payment Systems in Malaysia

Bank Negara launches JomPAY Payment Systems in April 2015 after a few month’s testing. The main purpose on the newly developed payment systems is to speed up e-payments and provides greater efficiency, convenience and accessibility for the public to make bill payments.

JomPAY provides a one-stop centre for consumers to make bill payments electronically anytime, anywhere and without any transaction fee. It will addresses the limitations of the current bank-centric model by establishing an open electronic bill payments platform.

With JomPAY, merchants only need to maintain a banking relationship with one bank, in order to receive bill payments from customers of all other banks.

Likewise, customers only need to maintain an account with one bank in order to make bill payments to the entire network of merchants registered with JomPAY. Customers will be able to pay any bill through the Internet or Mobile Banking service of Banks in Malaysia using funds from Savings, Current or Credit Card accounts for FREE.
