Recently, AirAsia just rolled out their new e-wallet called BigPay. It is a combination of mobile app + physical card.
Today, I am going to reveal my personal thought about how useful this newly introduced e-wallet app. After reading through this article, perhaps, you will agree with Tony Fernandes’ belief which this e-wallet has huge potential and will be worth more than AirAsia in the short future. Lets’ rock ~
1.0 Introduce of BigPay
BigPay is an e-wallet that has app which you may directly download from both Google Play Stores and Apple Store. Besides, after you has successful top up certain amount (for my case, I topped up RM50), you will get the physical card which acts as a prepaid/debit card, to be delivered to your doorstep.

- Use the physical card to make payment across any 35.9 million Mastercard merchants worldwide (You earn 1 Big Point for every RM20 spent), or
- Use it to purchase AirAsia website for its product. Even though this is a Mastercard logo debit card, AirAsia does not impose any processing fee if you use this BigPay to do payment on your AirAsia air ticket. Furthermore, you earn 1 Big Point for every RM20 spent.

As comparing to other existing mobile service gateway provider which I know currently available in market….
Maxis – It has monthly charge from as low as RM18 per month. Moreover, hardware device – Card reader is required. Additional cost which is know as Transaction fee is applicable for every transaction.
Besides, there is another popular payment gateway provider, namely GHL. You will see many retail shops use this company service for their credit card payment. They charge. For their charges, kindly refer to their website: CLICK FOR MORE DETAILS .
Last but not least, almost all local banks provide the payment gateway for their merchants to accept credit card payment. However, I believe it required minimum commitment for monthly total transaction and charge certain amount on transaction. Typically, you will see bank logo sticker found on the terminal device placed on cashier counters.
