KUALA LUMPUR, 19 May 2000 (Asia Pulse) - This new service, which is being jointly developed with Mesiniaga Bhd, will allow customers to make payment online using their deposit accounts or credit cards.
The Maybank e-Bills, which is offered free of charge, is available only to Maybank's consumers and corporate customers.
"The ease and convenience of our customers in conducting their business transactions over the Internet will now be a reality.
"The Maybank e-bills service now ensures that our customers benefit from our use of Internet and innovation," said Maybank senior general manager (e-banking) Ashraf Ali Kadir in a statement on Friday.
To use these facilities, Maybank's customers need to register with both the bill consolidator and the bank which then issues two separate access numbers and PINs to them.
The service also allows the customers to view, print and pay their bills anytime and anywhere.
The Maybank e-Bills service is accessed through the website www.niaganet.com which links to Maybank's e-Bills service to complete the e-business transaction cycle.
Niaganet will allow the billers to present their bills online and the bill payers can carry out their payment transactions through Maybank's e-Bills system.
Among the first bill issuers to be recruited by niaganet.com are Synergy Card & Payment Services Sdn Bhd and Cyber Gen Sdn Bhd.
At the same time, Maybank is currently working with its existing and new bill issuers to join this service.
