GoPayz, the standalone universal e-wallet developed by U Mobile has been appointed as an official agent of Majlis Agama Islam dan ‘Adat Melayu Perak (MAIPk) to collect zakat, wakaf and derma payments for customers residing in Perak and recently, both parties collaborated to launch a Muslim-friendly GoPayz-MAIPk Visa prepaid Ta’awun card.
“GoPayz aims to provide customers with accessible digital financial and lifestyle services. With this new GoPayz-MAIPk Visa prepaid Ta’awun card, our Muslim customers residing in Perak are not only able to fulfil their religious responsibilities and commitments with ease, they are also able to make transactions anywhere in the world where Visa is accepted.
The response to the card has been very good and we are very encouraged by our collaboration with MAIPK,” Group Chief Executive Officer of U Mobile Group, Wong Heang Tuck said .
“The Perak Islamic Religious Council is always committed to enhance the economic and social development of Muslims, especially through zakat and wakaf. This new initiative focuses on the spirit of ta’awun (helping) where MAIPk and the community work together indirectly to collect wakaf funds and create competitive wakaf projects.
Expenses at selected outlets will allow the customer to collect reward points which will eventually be converted into wakaf contributions. MAIPk will then develop suitable endowment projects to benefit the community in Perak. The launch of this product is also timely, where we strive to minimise physical movement by prioritising online transactions,” Shahrul Azam bin Shaari, Chief Executive Officer of MAIPk said.
The new Ta’awun card enables Muslim customers to pay their zakat, wakaf and derma through a variety of accessible digital channels namely the GoPayz website and app, MAIPk payment terminals and MAIPk payment kiosks.
