Singtel has partnered with Visa to bundle Singapore’s first Virtual Visa Account facility into its Dash mobile wallet app.
All new and existing Dash customers will automatically receive a Dash Visa Virtual Account that can be used by customers with compatible NFC-enabled Android smartphones for mobile payments at over 50,000 Visa PayWave contactless payment terminals across the island, including as at popular merchants, Sheng Siong, Spinelli and Toastbox.
To start paying on their mobile, customers can just sign in on the Dash app and top-up their Dash Visa accounts and start using them at Dash merchants and on local e-commerce sites such as Qoo10, Zalora and HungryGoWhere.
Singtel also announced future plans for Dash to be included in global wallets such as Apple Pay, and enable QR code payments to expand into hawker centres.
Since its re-launch last year, Singtel claims that Dash has boosted its customer base to over 500,000, with payments, remittance and transit transaction volumes more than doubling.
