You can now use your Setel eWallet to pay via DuitNow QR

Setel, the app you probably have installed as an easy way to make payments for buying fuel from Petronas stations nationwide, has now announced that Malaysians with Setel can use their eWallet in it to pay for stuff at merchants in Malaysia via DuitNow QR. This means you can use Setel for much more than just petrol now, be it food, coffee, clothes, groceries and more.

Some Malaysians might actually have already been using their Setel to pay for stuff via DuitNow QR, but that was only a selected number of users as Setel began rolling out the feature to some Setel users first. This time, it looks like Setel has fully launched its DuitNow QR feature, allowing users to use their Setel eWallet to scan any DuitNow QR code for a quick and easy way to make for payments when they purchase goods and services.

Well, almost any DuitNow QR code anyway. According to the Setel DuitNow QR page, users can use Setel to pay for stuff via DuitNow QR only if the business gets their DuitNow QR code from the certain issuers. Noticeably missing from that list however is Maybank and Agro Bank. Here’s the full list of issuers Setel will work with for DuitNow QR at the moment:

  • Touch ‘n Go eWallet
  • Grab
  • Boost
  • ShopeePay
  • Fave Pay
  • CIMB Bank
  • RHB Bank
  • AmBank
  • HSBC Bank
  • Bank Muamalat
  • Public Bank
  • OCBC Bank
  • Hong Leong Bank
  • Affin Bank
  • Bank Islam
  • UOB Bank

If you’re keen on trying out Setel with DuitNow QR as you pay for stuff, the process will be pretty similar to other DuitNow QR payment methods. Simply launch Setel, click on the Pay tab at the bottom and tap on ‘Scan QR Code’. Then you can scan a DuitNow QR code, enter in the payment amount and press on ‘Pay’ to make your payment. It will deduct from your Setel Wallet, so do ensure you have enough in it left prior to making a payment.

It’s also worth noting that from now till the end of May 2023, for every transaction made with DuitNow QR, Setel users will be able to earn Mesra points towards their account. They can then use these points to redeem things such as fuel and other rewards.

What you can’t do right now however with Setel is make payments to merchants that generate dynamic QR codes or transfer money to friends and family with personal QR codes. However, Setel says that they’re already working to implement these features for their users very soon.
