With DuitNow, customers can send money instantly on a 24/7 basis to DuitNow IDs.

To receive money, bank customers need only perform a one-time registration for DuitNow by linking their mobile numbers, MyKad or MyPR number, passport number or business registration number with their bank account.

Bank customers can participate in the contest by registering for DuitNow at their bank, and every DuitNow funds transfer to a unique mobile number or DuitNow ID each day counts as one contest entry.

Customers who previously registered or were pre-registered for DuitNow are already eligible for the contest and can proceed to earn contest entries by sending money.

“DuitNow is the result of a multi-year collaborative effort by Payments Network Malaysia (PayNet) and Malaysian banks to modernise Malaysia’s retail payments infrastructure and introduce innovative new services,” said PayNet group CEO Peter Schiesser.

“DuitNow delivers a quantum leap in e-Payments value proposition by making payments fast, frictionless, and accessible for all Malaysians.”

With the launch of DuitNow, banks will begin migrating Instant Transfer (e-IBFT), which is running on decades-old technology to the DuitNow platform, and migration is expected to be completed by June 2019.

Compared to Instant Transfer, the new DuitNow platform has the flexibility to support new future functionality such as QR payments, request-to-pay transactions, instant debits, as well as extended messaging payloads for businesses.

“We are excited to initiate the DuitNow launch campaign, which we hope will encourage more Malaysians to discover the unparalleled convenience of sending money and making payments with DuitNow,” said Schiesser.

“We have lined up amazing prizes for winners of the campaign. Winning one of our prizes will truly be a life-changing experience.”

The grand prize winner will have the privilege of selecting a property worth up to RM1mil from the portfolio of IJM Land, Sime Darby Property or SP Setia. Schiesser added, “We wanted to allow the grand prize winner the flexibility to choose a property at a location of his or her choice.”
