Event: DBS one.tap

By Saturday, July 06, 2013

The worst thing that can happen on a shopping trip is to forget one's credit card. Trust me because that's exactly what this silly girl did, and in Hong Kong of all places. So all i had was my phone and camera and a limited amount of cash and a whole load of pretty things that i couldn't buy. If only i can pay with my phone. Awesome idea right?

Well guess what? DBS has come up with a whole new one.tap mobile paying technology. Check this video out. 
Cool hur? Some red carpet treatment that is. This drama queen would have owned the red carpet if i were using a Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled smartphone (sorry iPhone users). Those lucky fellas won instant mobile coupons such as movie tickets at the Shaw Lido event.

Anyways, the coolest part is really about the virtual credit card, first ever in Singapore. No more wallet clutter! No more wallets even. I can finally use my mini Bottega Veneta without having to throw in random cards and cash along with keys and phone. Perfect.

You will now be able to tap and pay, using your mobile phone, for purchases at over 30000 merchant acceptance points in town and for taxi fares even. Popular merchants include Watsons, Shaw Theatres and fast food chains like Popeyes and Pasta Mania among many others. What's more, you can also redeem mobile coupons on the go by attaching the mobile coupon on your phone before payment. The offer would then be instantly and automatically redeemed.

Sounds interesting? Find out more about what you can do with DBS one.tap in the next coming months.
This new secure payment service is made possible through a collaboration between DBS, MasterCard, StarHub and EZ Link through their SmartWallet digital wallet application. 

It's time to sign up now! :)
