If you want to be a verified user, you will need to submit a picture of you and your identity card, address, birth date and birth place, mother’s name and identity card number. Once verified, you can store a maximum of RM1,500 (RM one thousand five hundred) to the Account.

By registering for an Account, you confirm that (a) you have provided us with your consent to use your personal information for the provision of Services; and (b) you will pay or allow us to deduct from your Account all fees and charges associated with the use of the Services.

 

You may be able to use your Account to gain access to other products, websites or services to which we have enabled access or with which we have tied up or collaborated. We have not reviewed, and assume no responsibility for any third party content, functionality, security, services, privacy policies, or other practices of those products, websites or services. If you do so, the terms of service for those products, websites or services, including their respective privacy policies, if different from these Terms of Service and/or our Privacy Policy, may also apply to your use of those products, websites or services.

You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account even if such activities or uses were not committed by you. Once you are logged in to the Account, you will stay logged in until you log out. If someone (you or someone else) has entered the wrong password and/or PIN up to 5 times in a row within 1 (one) day, your Account will be blocked. To recover your blocked Account, you must contact us. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorised use of your password or your failure to comply with this Section 6.3.

If your Account is or remains inactive (which means you have not logged into your Account) for more than three (3) months, we reserve the right to adopt the necessary measures such as suspend or deactivate your Account.

 

You may only use the Services and/or open an Account if your applicable jurisdiction allows you to accept these Terms of Service.

 

For certain 3P Merchants, your 3P Merchant account must be terminated if you want to terminate your Account with us. In these scenarios, you need to submit a request to us or the relevant 3P Merchant’s customer service directly and settle all of your obligations and ensure that your Account is not frozen/blocked before it can be automatically terminated. Please note that your Account can only be terminated if the balance is nil. Termination will be done immediately after request is submitted (within 24 hours), given that you do not have any pending obligations.

 

Prior to the termination of the Account, you must withdraw your remaining balance in the Account (“Redemption”), after deducting with any operational costs payable (if any) such that your Account balance is nil. Please note that your Account can only be terminated if the balance is nil. The method of Redemption is stipulated under the method of withdrawal as provided in these Terms of Service. There is no minimum limit balance in the Account that can be redeemed. However, if the balance in the Account is insufficient for any deduction of the costs payable, you are required to settle this obligation by way of method separately set out by us.

 

Should your Account be banned due to investigation by Government/Authorized Body(s), we reserve the right to retain your money indefinitely and/or release it per instruction from the Government or Authorized Body(s).

 

You may only use the Services and/or open an Account if your applicable jurisdiction allows you to accept these Terms of Service.

1.9       Errors and unauthorised transactions

 

When an unauthorised Transaction or an error occurs in your Account, we will cover you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorised Transaction or error as long as you follow the procedures set out below. An unauthorised Transaction occurs when a payment is sent from your Account that you did not authorise and did not benefit you i.e. if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your Account, and sends a payment from your Account, an unauthorised Transaction has occurred. If you give someone access to your Account (by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use.

 

You should immediately notify us if you believe:

●          there has been an unauthorised Transaction or unauthorised access to your Account;

●          there is an error in your Account history;

●          your password or unlock code has been compromised;

●          your Account mobile-activated phone has been lost, stolen or deactivated; or

●          you need more information about a transaction listed on the transaction history or transaction confirmation.

 

To be eligible for protection for unauthorised Transactions, you must notify us within twenty four (24) hours upon notice of such unauthorised Transactions, but no later than thirty (30) days after any unauthorised Transaction first appears in your Account history. We will extend the time period with reasonable and demonstrable reason, such as a hospital stay, which kept you from notifying us within the time limit. You should regularly log into your Account and review your Account history to ensure that there has not been an unauthorised Transaction or error. We may also send an email to the primary email address you have provided in order to notify you of each transaction from your Account. You should also review these transaction confirmations to ensure that each transaction was authorised and is accurate.

 

For unauthorised Transactions or Errors in your Account, notify us through the methods set out in Section 16.

 

When you notify us, provide us with all of the following information:

 

●          Your name, contact number and email address registered to your Account;

●          A description of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error and an explanation as to why you believe it is incorrect or why you need more information to identify the Transaction; and

●          The amount of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error.

 

If you notify us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.

 

Once you notify us of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:

 

●          We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an unauthorised Transaction or error that is eligible for protection.

●          We will complete our investigation within ten (10) Business Days from the date we received your notification of the suspected unauthorised Transactions or error. If your Account is new (the first transaction from your Account was less than thirty (30) business days from the date you notify us), we may take up to twenty (20) business days to complete this investigation. If we need more time, we may take up to forty five (45) days to complete our investigation (or up to ninety (90) days for new Accounts, or if your transaction was at a point of sale where you were physically present).

●          If we decide that we need more time to complete our investigation, we may, at our sole discretion, provisionally credit your Account for the amount of the suspected unauthorised Transaction or error.

●          We will inform you of our decision after completing our investigation.

 

If we determine that there was an unauthorised Transaction or error, we will promptly credit the full amount into your Account within one (1) business day of our determination. Or, if you have already received a provisional credit, you will be allowed to retain those amounts. If we decide that there was not an unauthorised Transaction or error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email to you. If you received a provisional credit, we will remove it from your Account and notify you of the date and amount of the debit. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

 

We will rectify any error that we discover. If the error results in your receipt of less than the correct amount to which you are entitled, we will credit your Account for the difference. If the error results in your receipt of more than the correct amount to which you are entitled, you agree that we may debit the extra funds from your Account.

 

          If you erroneously send a payment to the wrong party, or send a payment for the wrong amount (based on a typographical error, for example), your only recourse will be to contact the party to whom you sent the payment and ask them to refund the payment. We will not reimburse you or reverse a payment that you have made in error.
