Payment solution provider MOLPay has added Singapore Post Limited (SingPost)’s network of Self-service Automated Machines (SAM) into its list of Physical Payment Channels. Physical payment is an alternative payment option apart from credit card and Internet banking for e-commerce offered by MOLPay.
With SAM as a physical payment channel for MOLPay, online shoppers in Singapore can pay for their online purchases by cash and in Singapore dollars using their NETS cards.
This service will also allow MOLPay’s new and existing e-commerce merchants to extend their online businesses to Singapore, tapping on SAM network as another payment collection mode.
SAM is a 24-hour automated post office that allows residents in Singapore to weigh packages, buy stamps, or even pay off their bills and fines with easy step-by-step instructions displayed on the touch screen. Close to 300 SAM machines are strategically deployed island wide at HDB heartlands, MRT stations, shopping malls as well as some selected private condominiums in Singapore.
