Boost is an e-wallet that allows customers to pay participating merchants via their mobile phone. It has just under 9 million users and is accepted by over 438,000 merchants. As well allowing customers to pay for online purchases, Boost enables them to pay bills, pay for train and bus fares — and more.

Just 21% of Malaysians have a credit card (PPRO Almanac). This makes supporting alternative payment methods a must for any e-commerce merchant hoping to succeed in the Malaysian market.

It’s one of Malaysia’s top e-wallets, alongside BitPay, GrabPay, HyperWallet and PaySera.

  1. Malaysians pay for 14% of all e-commerce purchases using cash.
  2. Let customers pay online and in-store with the same trusted e-wallet.
  3. Give the 15% of Malaysians who are unbanked a way to pay.
