RHB Banking Group today brings its customers Apple Pay, a safer, more secure and private way to pay that helps customers avoid handing their payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash — and uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction.

Customers with RHB Visa Debit and Credit Cards/-i — including the popular RHB Multi-Currency Visa Debit Card/-i that enables customers to transact up to 33 currencies at any time, with no conversion currency fees — can add and use their cards with Apple Pay.

“We are excited to announce that we’re bringing Apple Pay to our customers so they can enjoy a seamless and secure digital banking experience. This initiative aligns with our commitment to innovation and meeting the evolving needs of our customers,” said Mohd Rashid Mohamad, Group Managing Director/Group Chief Executive Officer of RHB Banking Group.

Customers simply double-click the side button, authenticate and hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every Apple Pay purchase is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code. Apple Pay is accepted in grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and many more places.

Customers can also use Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, and Mac to make faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web in Safari without having to create accounts or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. Apple Pay makes it easier to pay for food and grocery deliveries, online shopping, transportation, and parking, among other things. Apple Pay can also be used to make payments in apps on Apple Watch.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, or Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device.

Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add RHB Visa credit or debit cards. Once customers add a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away. Customers will continue to receive the rewards and benefits offered by their RHB cards.

In conjunction with this new payment development, RHB offers a limited-time cashback campaign that enables customers to earn up to RM30 cashback when they use their RHB card with Apple Pay three times, with a minimum purchase of RM50 for each transaction. This offer is valid until 31 July 2024 and applies to in-store and online purchases.
