Grab, which received its e-money license from Bank Negara Malaysia in 2017, is set to launch GrabPay mobile wallet in beta in the coming weeks in Malaysia, it said.

While GrabPay is available in various applications in other countries, Malaysia would become the second market where the wallet can be used to make purchases in restaurants and shops. [nL4N1N81BY]
