Connaught Pasar Malam is the first night market in Malaysia to implement the Scan2Pay mobile payment system, whose technology benefits both the vendors and consumers by providing a cashless payment system, reducing transaction time where the means of paper cash and coins are not required. Moving forward with Malaysia’s initiative in becoming a cashless society by 2020, MIG Mobile Tech Berhad aims to introduce the WECONNECT mobile application and Scan2Pay feature to all night markets across Malaysia.
MIG Mobile Tech Berhad, a sister company of MIG Group of Companies launched WECONNECT’s O2O – Scan2Pay, a mobile payment platform, at the Connaught Pasar Malam in Cheras on 31 May 2017. The official launch event unveiled Asia’s first digital Pasar Malam (or, Night Market) in Malaysia, where over 10,000 guests and 50 vendors had a first-hand experience of Malaysia’s first cashless Pasar Malam with WECONNECT’s Scan2Pay mobile payment application.
Developed by award-winning entrepreneurs, Dato’ Brian Wee and Dato’ Stanley Wong, WECONNECT is the first-of-its-kind mobile application in Malaysia designed to facilitate shopping, business and trade (online and offline) transactions. It was launched earlier in August of last year.
Every Wednesday, throngs flock to the popular Cheras Pasar Malam @ Taman Connaught (also known as Connaught Pasar Malam) to take advantage of delicious local street food and affordable household and electronic goods.
WECONNECT Mobile App and its feature Scan2Pay were largely innovated by the team’s observation of the growing need for Malaysia’s society and the world’s advancing technology to connect and move forward in synchronization. The fast pace evolution of technology that is resulting similar progression virtual money and e-payment systems is driving the need for society to adapt to this growing trend.
The launch was officiated and graced by VIPs, Dato’ Brian Wee, CEO of MIG Mobile Tech Berhad and Dato’ Stanley Wong, COO of MIG Mobile Tech Berhad.
