KUALA LUMPUR: Cashless payment for purchases has made its advent at the Kampung Baru Ramadan bazaar.
Traders welcomed the concept, describing it as safer, easier and time-saving.
About 400 traders at the bazaar are providing this service throughout the month of Ramadan until May 31.
Trader Masnor Salehudin said the concept of purchasing using the Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet card would prevent robbery and crime because it did not involve the use of cash.
“In fact it can accelerate and facilitate sale and purchase activities as customers only need to touch the Touch n Go eWallet card to the scanner,” he said.
This cashless concept also helps to resolve the lack of loose change and smaller currency notes for both customers and sellers.
The Cashless Ramadan Bazaar in Kampung Baru is an initiative by TNG Digital Sdn Bhd, in encouraging the use of the Touch’ n Go eWallet.
Customers who use this electronic wallet only need to scan the trader’s QR code when purchasing a meal.
