Singtel launches Singapore’s first virtual Visa account on its all-in-one mobile payments app, Dash. New and existing Dash customers will automatically receive a Dash Visa Virtual Account that can be used for mobile payments at over 50,000 places across the island.
To start paying on their mobile, customers can just sign in on the Dash app and top-up their Dash Visa accounts and start using them at Dash merchants and on local e-commerce sites. Customers with compatible NFC-enabled Android smartphones will also be able to pay using their Dash Visa accounts wherever Visa payWave is accepted.
Singtel future plans for Dash to be included in global wallets such as Apple Pay, and QR code payments. In addition, Dash is also working towards adding more educational institutions to its merchant list to widen its reach in the youth segment.
