MyDebit is Malaysia's national domestic debit card scheme which facilitates POS payments using ATM cards issued by banks in Malaysia. Close to 200,000 merchant outlets in Malaysia accept MyDebit payments.
“With 43 million ATM cards in circulation, virtually every consumer who walks into The Store Group’s outlets carries an ATM card which they can use to pay for their purchases. MyDebit’s contactless feature provides the most convenient and efficient way of making payments at merchant outlets. All you need to do is wave and go,” said Mr Peter Schiesser, Group Chief Executive Officer of PayNet.
“MyDebit is delighted to be the preferred payment card of The Store Group. We are pleased to partner with The Store Group to bring the convenience of MyDebit to customers,” added Mr Schiesser.
For consumers, the MyDebit card is a safe, accessible and efficient method of payment. Through wider use of their MyDebit cards, consumers can manage finances more effectively and responsibly without any risk of incurring credit card debts, late payment fees or finance charges. In addition, consumers need not wait in line at bank branches and ATMs to withdraw cash as they can make payments directly at merchant outlets. For purchases below RM250, consumers can pay conveniently by simply waving or tapping their MyDebit cards.
“For The Store, MyDebit is not only the most effective form of card payment with the lowest merchant discount rates (MDR) amongst all cards in Malaysia, but it also helps The Store Group reduce the risk and costs associated with cash handling. By going cashless with MyDebit cards, the costs arising from managing cash are minimised if not eliminated. We pass on these savings to our customers with The Store, Pacific and Milimewa’s everyday low prices,” said Mr Winky Pek, Senior General Manager of The Store Group.
