Cashless payments are the way to go these days, but not every e-wallet can offer you the benefits and versatility of ShopeePay, which you might have already known as one of the best payment methods when you checkout on Shopee, there are many reasons to treat it as your main e-wallet over others, so here are some pro tips on how you can reap more rewards when using ShopeePay.

Verify your ShopeePay account to receive Premium benefits


Your ShopeePay e-wallet is just as good as your debit card, which is why you should verify your identity with ShopeePay to receive premium benefits such as a higher transaction and wallet limit of up to RM4,999 from the usual RM2,999.


To do it, you will need to have your IC card or passport ready, head over to ShopeePay Setting on the Shopee app and choose “IC Verification”, take a clear picture of your identity documents and wait patiently, your account will then be upgraded within 24 hours.

Receive coins cashback at any offline merchants when you scan any DuitNow QR code and pay with ShopeePay


All thanks to DuitNow QR, ShopeePay can be used at any retail merchants that accepts other e-wallets, and you can receive 3% coins cashback (capped at 300 coins) with no minimum spend for up to 20 transactions daily.


When you see a DuitNow QR code at a merchant, scan it with your ShopeePay QR reader and enter the amount you need to pay, the transaction will then go through as if you made the payment using a debit card, it’s just that simple.

Enjoy up to RM4 cashback with 1 Sen ShopeePay vouchers


How often do you hear about vouchers that costs only 1 Sen? With ShopeePay, you can purchase such vouchers and enjoy up to RM4 cashback on several participating retail merchants.

For instance, you can enjoy a RM4 off a Brown Sugar Boba drink from Tiger Sugar when you purchase its 1 Sen ShopeePay voucher, which all you need to do is to pay the original price when you are at the merchant, then RM4 will be credited back to you instantly after payment is successful, so make sure you have more than the usual amount in your ShopeePay e-wallet.
