Boost aka “Malaysia’s largest e-wallet” together with Shell Malaysia has announced that their e-wallet payment service is now accepted at Shell fuel stations across Malaysia. As of now, 800 Shell stations accept Boost as an alternative payment method to further enhance the overall retail experience, whether for fuel or other amenities available at Shell Select.
The collaboration between Boost and Shell Malaysia already started since last month and in a time span of just a few weeks, more than 80% of Shell stations here in Malaysia have adopted Boost as another cashless method of payment. This number will grow to 100% by the end of May 2019.
According to Mr. Mohd Khairil Abdullah, CEO of Axiata Digital Services Sdn Bhd (who happens to be the parent company of Boost), “Boost was first launched for mobile prepaid users to reload their mobile credit but since getting our e-Money license from Bank Negara Malaysia, our e-wallet features have gained a lot of traction. We are excited to play a leading role in turning Malaysia into a cashless society, in-line with the Government’s ambitions.”
“We wanted customers to be able to pay for their goods and services in a convenient and safe manner. As such, we see this partnership as providing more convenience to our users, because now they can use our e-wallet at Shell stations nationwide,” he added.
Mr. Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd, added, “Our customers are digitally savvy, and technology plays an important role in their day-to-day lives. Hence, partnering with the nation’s leading e-wallet enables us to offer them the additional option to pay with their Boost e-wallet when fuelling up with Shell fuels and grabbing their favourite treats at Shell Select. We are constantly looking to offer Malaysians a more convenient and enhanced retail experience, to help make their life’s journeys better.”
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Boost and Shell Malaysia will be rewarding fellow Malaysians with an exclusive promotion. From 14 May until 14 June 2019, customers to enjoy a two (2) times RM5 cashback if they spend RM40 with their Boost e-wallet at the selected Shell stations. Not bad, Shell and Boost. Not bad at all.
