If you carry around a big bag like me, you'd know my woe. Sometimes digging through your bag is such a chore (not to mention embarrassing when you hold up the queue)- and even worse, I've had my nails break (omg such a bimbo statement, I know) while digging through my bag!
Unlike my long, hugeass and heavy wallet, which I usually keep in my bag, my phone is so much more convenient to hold in my hands.
Now, you can wave those woes of a heavy wallet and cashless situations goodbye with SingTel and Standard Chartered Bank’s newest innovation: Dash!
Dash is a free mobile app that allows you to download your cash straight into your phone, and you can pay merchants (such as Watsons and Wing Tai stores including Topshop/Topman) or your friends real cash! Gone are the days of queuing up at the ATMs!
Transactions done via Dash are absolutely safe and no charges applied, so it is literally your very own ATM in your hand!
Dash is really convenient to use and not to mention really fast! I was the very 1st customer to pay via Dash at the Topshop Ion outlet, and despite it being both mine and the cashier's first time using Dash, we were done in less than 1 minute. No change required either!
If you search Topshop from the list of merchants, you can find the one you are at and there will be different codes. Each counter has a code so if it isn't displayed clearly, ask your cashier which one it is!
I also bought some toiletries at Watsons with Dash later that day and again, done under a minute!
Besides paying merchants, you can also use this amongst your friends!
When eating out with my friends, there is always that one friend that "never bring my wallet", "forget to withdraw money", or "I pay you next time", and it never happens!!
With Dash, these situations won’t happen anymore! Friends can download money from their Standard Chartered Bank Savings account into their Dash mCash account, and transfer the money to their friends directly and safely! Makes splitting the bill amongst a group of friend much more convenient as well! (Pssst, great for mahjong too!)
Besides that... Dash is also available on Comfort Taxis!! Some cabs are Dash enabled and you can pay your cabbie directly through Dash! Which is a real lifesaver if you have forgotten to bring out your wallet, or if you have no change! I really hate the ATMs in town that only dispenses $50 notes because most of the time cabbies don't have enough change (or you'd wipe out their till) and they hate it. There was this once a cabbie actually broke my $50 into all $2 for change (cab ride was about $6) and I ended up with goddamn a lot (23 pieces) of $2 notes... LESSON LEARNT #truestory.
I can't wait till Dash expands and is available at more merchants and ALL taxis!
I hope you’re as excited about Dash as I am!
