Grab has just announced a new update to GrabPay which will affect those that top up their eWallet via FPX. Effective 31st July 2020, Grab is increasing the minimum top-up amount for Online Banking (FPX) from RM20 to RM50.
According to Soya Cincau, the move to increase the top-up amount is “to support a better experience for daily usage with higher transaction values”. Do note that the new minimum RM50 top-up update is only applicable for the FPX channel.
According to Grab, the other top-up options including credit card, debit card and Maybank2U will retain its minimum RM20 top-up value. To recap, the Online Banking (FPX) option allows you to top up from other banks which include CIMB, Public Bank, Hong Leong Bank, RHB Bank, AmBank, Standard Chartered Bank and more.
For Maybank users, a seamless top-up can be experienced by linking Maybank2U account to Grab. Once it is linked, top-up can be done without the need to login to the bank account and having to wait for the SMS verification code.
The link to GrabPay can be managed via Maybank2U and by default, it will expire after 12 months. For greater convenience, users can also enable auto top-up which kicks in when GrabPay wallet balance drops below a certain amount.
