The next time when you are in Thailand you can possibly bring lesser cash. All thanks to SingTel and AIS. Both companies debuted VIA, Asia’s first cross-border mobile payment alliance.
When in Thailand, you can use Singtel Dash for entertainment, purchasing food and beverage and goods at shops displaying the VIA logo and Thai QR code. This includes popular shopping malls such as Central World, Chatuchak Weekend Market, MBK Center, and JJ Mall, and a wide range of shops from famous local brands to small and mid-sized stores.
To make purchases, simply scan the merchant’s QR code or let merchants scan their unique QR code in the Dash app.
To celebrate the launch of the service between Singapore and Thailand, Singtel Dash is offering a slew of perks that include a 10% cashback on all Singtel Dash payments made in Thailand and S$5 for 1GB of data roaming in Thailand for Singtel customers. AIS GLOBAL Pay is offering a THB100 real-time cashback for Rabbit Line Pay users on their first purchase of more than THB100 in Singapore.
Do stay tuned as we will bring you more updates when we have them!
